I picked up a nice woven flat belt to use on the Shaw for operating equipment off the engine's flat belt pulley.

Now the problem is, where do I store it on the tractor ?
So I dug up this small metal box and decided to make a tool box out of it.
This has a bracket on the back for it to fit over a flat tab mount.

Posted Image


I welded a piece of flat steel to a bracket on the back of the frame.

Posted Image


The box fits nicely on this flat mount.

Here you can see the clearance between the box and the rear wheel.
This is bolted to the side of the frame from inside the box.

Posted Image


This box doesn't have any latch on it so I took one off an old machinist tool box and put it on this box.
This also allows me to put a padlock on it.

Posted Image


Here is the finished tool box.
I painted it with the same paint that was used on the wheels and the seat.
Apparently the color changes as the paint ages.

Nice add on. Do you have anything to run on it yet? A small burr mill, hammer mill, or corn sheller would be a cool demo at a show.

Just a thought.

Looks great Ray, almost like it was meant to be there. Very nice addition. Can't wait for a video of you making ice cream with it.

I don't have any equipment to run off the flat belt yet but I'm going to start looking for something.

Doesn't the Amish people down around Nappanee IN. make flat belt driven Ice Cream makers for hit and miss engines and alike?

That is a great addition. I agree, the belt drive attachments would really be a great addition.

Mmmmmm, Ice cream. :)

But, Why buy one? With your capabilities, this should be an interesting new build. :thumbs:
