The best part of waking up, construction equipment puts in your cup.

Looks like it's working great

Decided to add my videos of the National Part,e Steam Show here...

I have a fair bit more footage but i want to do some editing to it. Here is a quick little unedited time lapse of the top of the pile where is spent most of my weekend! The dit was excellent this year and the weather was perfect for the show and camping at night!

More to come in the next few days!

Cool time lapse, but that's really quick.

Yeah, i could totally see a commercial!
Get the dragline to move beans to grinder or crusher, bulldozer opens crusher drawer, clamshell moves coffee from grinder to conveyer, up to coffee maker, brew...
Even better if you can also fill the water or get the coffee into a cup to you remotely.

Ya, I wish it was bit longer also. I am thinking about trying to do a ALL DAY, or ALL WEEKEND time lapse next time so we can see the changes to the pile as it occurs over the day or two.

I was about to pour the coffee into the maker and the conveyor was sitting right there so I thought "wait a minute, I should use the conveyor for this step!"

I finished a second conveyor, this one is 18" long, half as long as the first one.

I'm planning to make a few more and the ultimate plan is to assemble some form or sorting and/or crushing plant.

Trying to use google photos, lets see if I can post a picture of conveyor number two?

Here is the link from imgur... I don't think this is a thumb or picture either...

Read post 29.
Use size H.

I don't feel like learning google.

What tires on on the Structo? I like the tread, they look great with the stock hubcaps

Tires/wheels are from the Dromida DT 1/18. I might make a short vid about them...

Nice belt loader. I really like how much adjustment you built in everywhere.

That's a slick way to do hubcaps. I may need to find a set of those and see about making into whitewalls so my truck looks classy again.

Tried the hubcaps on my Traxxas tires, fits the fake rim perfectly.
