Coming along 1 step at a time.
Question you have almost the same blast cabinet I have.
What kind of light do you have in it, one that's made for it or a homemade one?
Mine has no light and needs one, just trying to find out what the best way to go is.


I am on my 3rd light. The OE light was a fluorescent, 2nd one the same. I just put in a plain plastic barn light base with a std 100 watt bulb. After screwing the bulb in, I put a piece of duct tape where the bulb meets the base to keep abrasives out. This light seems to work the best.

Good progress, Daniel! We'll be seeing color before too long if the weather holds.


I have good heat in my shop, so cold won't stop my painting. I actually get better results in cold weather because all the bugs & flies are long gone.

Great Daniel, you're moving right along.
Yep, you've got cold air coming your way. A present from us up here.

I was hoping to see pics of you as Santa.


I forgot to take my camera, but Fred (meangreen) will be getting me jpg's . He'll maybe post them here himself.

Spent an hour or so in the shop for some mental therapy. Did the soul some good, and got my brake pedal, and some other control parts blasted & under primer. Hoping early next week to shoot paint. Not likely to happen this week after all.

That's great to hear, Daniel. You need a bit of time to get yourself in order too. I know it sure helped me out last year to have something to work on. Let's you get lost in thought, yet be productive.

That's good Dan. Good move, to take your mind off things.
That said, where are the pictures today?

Got hungry, so went in the house & ate a BIG supper. Too lazy afterward to go back out with a camera. Not much to see but some smaller parts dangkling in front of my shop heater curing. I'll get a pic or 2 tomorrow. :thumbs:

Today I only got to split the transaxle. I need to check both axle seals, but out of acetylene, and I will have to heat the right hub to get it off so I can remove the axle tube to get at the seal. The left hub came right off, but the outside flange was already busted up. I have a replacement used hub off a Wheel Horse coming in the mail as a replacement.
The input shaft roller bearing was worn sloppy, but I had another transaxle with a good bearing. Need to go pick up a new input shaft seal. It was totally shot from grass that wrapped around the shaft & ate all the rubber off the seal.
The reverse idler's gear teeth were worn way back in this one, so I'm using the one out of a JD 110 transaxle.

Here's more parts that I got under primer yesterday.

You are just clipping along. You'll be putting it together before you know it.

I've driven it already, but she was butt ugly then! :D I just try to get as much done when I can, as I never know where my time will have to go later. I need to get my free stalls repaired, but haven't made myself start that yet. GT's keep luring me back to my shop! :smilewink:
