Default New Project!

As if I haven't got enough to do, I thought I'd start a new project.

Started out with 4x of these:


Have now got 1x of these:








3 more to go, hope to have them done this weekend.

Thanks for looking
Stu

Thanks Kaptain, its a secret for now Want to make sure I can do it first am open to guesses though

Made some progress over the weekend, now have 4x tyres, 4x wheels, 4x hubs and 4x motors:



Brass wheel bolts m2 x 10, 8x on each wheel:







Wheel hub and motor:



Next is the motor mounts, will have to wait until next weekend though to start those, a busy week ahead.

I will take a wild guess.

From the looks of the tires and the fact that the rims have only 8 lugs holding them to the hubs, I would say it is going to be a bobcat type of loader.
With those tires and anything larger, there would have to be more lugs nuts/bolts holding the rims to the hubs.

Now you have my 2 cents worth. BTW I hate secrets...LOL

Not sure what it's going to be yet, but nice machining job on the wheels/hubs. Where'd you get those motors if you don't mind me asking?

The 1:1 has 10 wheel bolts but I went with 8, those 2mm holes are a sod to tap!

Thanks, the motors came from here:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/22newcentu...84.m1439.l2654

A few clues:
It has 4x equal size wheels/tyres
Is artic steer
And remember what section this is in

Thanks for looking

No worries, Artic = Articulated i.e it bends in the middle

I found this at my local scrap metal merchants, 5 meters of 50mm ally bar and a 2.5 meter piece of 20x60, I picked them up for 50



Not sure what grade it is but it machines lovely, started roughing out the first motor mount:







Motor is a good fit:



Not bad for an old Colchester student lathe which incidentally before starting my first wheel for this project was the last lathe I used at school over 20 years ago!

Hope to get more done over the weekend.

OK, Stu, I guess you're building a CAT 938G wheel loader. The clues given by the tires and articulated steering lead me to this conclusion.



Forgive me if I'm wrong.

Has to be some sort of 4x4 tractor...unless he's throwing us off the scent by placing it in the farm tractor section...
