Learning how to weld is high on my to-do list. I've played around with a welder a couple of times, but never really knew what I was doing with it.

welding with 220 is the only way to go. I have a Miller 212. Love every minute of it.

Now back to trucks! Glad someone is doing a 5.3 or 6.0, you will get so much more power per dollar than ford. It should be pretty dang awesome. You may as well toss a turbo on there while you are at it. Go 6.0 if you can, those have *****.

Andy it will get there in no time! I would still say keep it 4wd. It will be more beneficial anyway. though I do know in the sand all you really need is 2wd and some good tires!

yeah haha, I've already been thinking of a turbo setup. Nothing crazy, just a little extra push that's still reliable. And yeah I think I'm going to stay 4x4, just to have it when I need/want it and more versatile. Just need to narrow down a trans/tcase option. thinking maybe a nice th400 with a 205 tcase or something nice with drivers drop. Although I think the newer chevy tcases are drivers drop, and they have a manual one too. so maybe just a nice stiffened up 4l80 and newer floor shift tcase, plus I'd have OD then for that here and there hi-way use hah

I think that is wise on your part. This should be good. I wish I would have went with a 6.0. Such a smaller package and better bang for your buck. The performance options are unlimited.

Good lord that's a hella sweet garage. Where you located these days? Up in Blaine still or did you go further north?

We've been trying to weigh our options of getting out Minneapolis, and getting up somewhere with land in the hopes of me getting a garage like yours. Damn man... super jealous.

Noticed the reference to your shop and needed to reread to catch up, missed it somehow.

Nice shop, nice project, nice compressor and the can crusher... NICE !

Ok so two things, one the compressor how big, hp and cfm and how's it working out, i.e. Running air tools ok, keeping up with all your projects ?


And two where did you get the Can crusher ?

hey man! thanks, I'm up in Isanti now. I was going for ramsey, but no houses at the time and too spendy for what was there. Couldn't pass up how cheap this house was. One of these days you'll have to run up and we'll have a few beers in the garage

compressor is a 60gal Sanborn(made here in MN so parts/warranty is easy)
specs: •3.7 HP
•13.4 CFM @ 40 PSI - 11.5 CFM @ 90 PSI

has kept up to everything I've done so far, doesn't turn on much at all. huge step from trying to make little ones do big jobs haha. I can crush a whole case of cans before it even turns on

the crusher was purchased via parts on ebay, but you can find quite a few pneumatic can crushers complete on ebay as well.

Thanks for the info.
Was looking for a 5.5 or 6 HP, 15 tp 17 cfm.
Not really sure what I need anymore.
My last one was 7.5hp, 27 cfm, and supplied all the air I needed for air tools and the sand blast cabinet, no blaster cabinet anymore.

Was looking at the local Lowes I will have to check out the web on that.

The can crusher, I will check out the web on that too.

Thks/Ltr

from what I have found, for the average garage guy with some air tools and maybe a paint gun. You just want over 10cfm, anything above 15 with an 80+ gal. tank is serious shop status. If I ever need more I can just sell and upgrade, this was just the most affordable/most air I could get at the time.

Thks, that's something to go on.

I was up in the air on 12 o r the 15 cfm unit.

deVille Bliss or one of the compressor steelers, has a chart that states what tools you can expect to operate with any given compressor, I guess the chart can be applied to any compressor and cfm rating.

I've always wanted one of these.

Industrial 5HP Single Phase 80 Gallon Vertical Air Compressor

17 SCFM @ 175 PSI / 19 SCFM @ 100 PSI

That said... the $1300 price tag is a bit steep, but damn if that couldn't run anything I'd ever want or need.

Damn... you did get way up there. We talked with a realtor about our place in Minneapolis, but we are still 20k under water on it. So at least another year before we can even break even on it. And damn... that garage on that place sucks *****.

We got a bet going whether or not you're going to make it to the dunes this year.

I came here to get the inside line.

lol buttholes, I'm getting married in july so I have that to get ready for too. But I'm trying to get the motor done before summer. My f250 is giving me trans problems again, more like an electrical deal that's taking money to track down now too. And I'm probably getting a new daily so I can park big dirty.

It's a low mile 5.3. Will be getting a cam,rockers, springs, maybe an intake swap, headers and a tune for now. That should put me in a good Hp range for now. First thing to do is start chopping up the harness, and getting my motor mounts made. Then I can get it set where I need for clearing everything, and get it running ASAP.

lol. probably go with a 4le80 just for beef, and try and find a manual t-case. all newer chevy's had driver drop so that's nice. I'm guessing I'll have to make 2 new driveshafts but not that big of a deal. But I may have to check my pinion angle and change my perches on the rear axle...or just link it. but for right now I just want to make it a driver again and then go from there. so the biggest thing besides motor will be full cab cage and engine cage when I get the body back on and clearanced.

haha Yeah I really want to get working on it now that I have the whole drivetrain collected. I have LS motor mounts and my trans cross-member all ready. Just have to hang it over the frame and figure out where to put my fame mounts.

I've been tied up with getting married, trying to finish my motorcycle, and I also added another RBV because I have a problem lol.

few pics cause words are boring :)

added some new lights I snagged from a job to the garage. 8-6 bulb units...its bright haha


my 83' Suzuki Tempter. come a long way, just about done. needs the battery mounted and seat made, tires, custom exhaust etc.




And when you turn 30 you start to spend your money wisely..like buying a bronco II that's also 30 lol. couldn't pass up the steal! she's a Texan :) I'll start a thread on it I suppose, but for now I'll just put these here.
