Default Fun idea

Gang,
Saw an idea someone had and knew it would be good for you guys. Take a piston rod end and make it into a steering column mount. Kind of like the old speedsters but much more industrial. Just thought I'd throw this out there.

Default Re: Fun idea

Picturing it in my mind, I like it

I'll hafta see if I can get to it and get it out, but I took a set of VW connecting rods and bolted the crank end around a piece of pipe and used the wrist pin end to hold 4 pair of tongs fore my forge, when I go out tomorrow I'll snap a picture in the corner where it's at so you can get an idea how long it could take to get it

Last summer I stopped at a truck repair shop to get a part for the brakes (forget what it's called at the moment) then use it as a torque multiplier for rear axle nuts and flywheel nut, I also asked it I could get a couple of those big connecting rods, he had just gotten rid of his scrap, but I need to stop by some day, I was gonna use the connecting rods to make rear tail lights out of, bend then 90 degrees and use the big end to hold the lights, they're real close to the lights I'm using now
