I had noticed in one of my pics that the first seat frame looked off, it was 3/16" long on one side. Even tho in the end, you won't see it, I fixed it, because it would bug the sh_t out of me lol
Test fitting both seat frames in the jeep. The 2nd one is for the trailer.

Made the first removeable front seat frame. I made it so the back of it can fold down. Also got some small buckles for mounting the shovel, axe and garand to the  jeep

The start of a new project, cut some 3/8" and 1/4" plate. Will need to clean up the holes yet. And made my wife a sign. And made a cart for a dry cut saw

I made a mistake and underestimated how heavy the notcher was when I had it cantilever off the back of my new dry cut saw cart. So tonight I cut the welds off and flipped the top around. Much more stable now

Here's the 2nd set of 3/8 and 1/4 plate pieces for the vertical tube benders I am making. And my shop dog Sprocket now has his face on a fire pit I made for my family.

Got to spend some time this afternoon at Marc's amazing shop. Used one of his mills (Lagun Mill) to turn the ovals back into circles (bearings were worn out on the cnc table so it didn't make the circles correctly)
