I thought I would start a thread for others with to much time on their hands and doing a project you could easily do without. Haha. As a retire, and I know we have a fair amount here, and just enduring a Northern Pa winter I just needed something to fiddle with outside. About 2 weeks ago we lost a neighbor Glen (95) WW2 vet and part of that greatest generation. He lived two doors down and we became friends over the last 6 years. Last week I saw his son over to his place and I went over to say hi. He asked me if I wanted to buy any of his dads junk in the garage as he had to have the property cleared out in 6 months (reverse mortgage). Glen had bought a new lawn tractor last year and his son said half price what a new one would be. Sounded fair to me and I have little need for a 22HP mower but I thought it would be cool to have. So I drove it home and he threw in a 4’ lawn sweeper I also didn’t need. Holly got home from work and said Oh Gawd what did you do. She then reminded me that we have a quarter acre and half of that is house and garage and driveway. Thinking fast on my feet I said it’s not for cutting grass I’m going to build a wagon and take her two nephews on hay rides Colton and Jaxon. Jaxon is 2 and calls me Uncle Buh. I had this Harbor Freight Big Foot hand truck I got on sale for 39 bucks about 6 years ago and I have a spare to boot. https://www.harborfreight.com/mater...00-lbs-capacity-bigfoot-hand-truck-62900.html So I fired up the welder put a tang on it built a PT box and painted it JD green. Just the right size for two little kids. Of course in the back of my mind I will likely haul other stuff around. With the wheel way back it backs up nice. I still have to add a yellow strip down each side and a few reflectors sides and back. As always total cost of the wagon zero as it was all stuff i had laying around. Ok now show me stuff you all built you really didn’t need but had fun doing.
