Web page updated, latest project included


Just updated my web page: <mklange.cnc.net> In addition to adding the latest completed project (the entertainment center), I modified the format somewhat, adding thumbnails and links to individual projects. Also added a few tractor pictures as well.
Comments welcome.
Thanks for looking.

Great sunset pix!! Terrific job being done on the workshop! A couple of questions/observations: 1) I can't see the double rainbow; 2) What is that long building beside the shop? and 3) it looks like you live in rural area just outside Tucson. How much acreage do you have?

Thanks for the comments.
1) The rainbows are somewhat subtle. Take a look over the turbine vents of both buildings. 2) The long building is a 10 x 20 storage building we had built when we moved in. Shed builder showed up the same day the movers did. We added 700 square feet of house size compared to our old home,but even after getting rid of a bunch of stuff, what we had in the old house wouldn't fit in the new one (just not as much storage space built in). 3) We have 4.5 acres. Easiest thing in the world compared to other places. One doesn't do anything to the desert, so we have effectively more than 3 3/4 acres of buffer between neighbors (and a cool place for our son to explore).

Taht's better. <g>
Say, how many chillens can you fit on that Child's Bookshelf? Those look a lot cheaper and easier to make than beds. <gd&r>
Why your disdain of Ford 9Ns, Mark?

Yeah, that www thing does it every time.

Not so much disdain for Ford 9N's so much as for my selection of *this* 9N. Let's just say that I missed a few essential things in inspecting this tractor before purchasing it. I knew the guy selling it had done the Krylon can "new paint job" on it when I bought it, that didn't bother me -- he even painted over the caked on oil rather than scrape it off. I also knew he was selling me a tractor that needed a new battery even though he tried to hide that fact. What I missed were things like a small crack in the block and other indications that this tractor is going to be in need of a major overhaul soon. On this class of tractor, the serial number is on a small boss at the back of the engine block (yep, the identifying part of the vehicle is on a component that could changed out fairly regularly -- Thanks Mr. Ford). On this tractor, that boss was rusted away by previous engine leaks. When I first bought the other tractor, I thought about selling the Ford (with full disclosure of course), but decided I couldn't get out of it what I have put into it, so this tractor will become a project and that won't be a bad thing. Our son needs to learn a little bit about things mechanical rather than all that stuff that glows on a CRT and is controlled by a joystick. He's not quite 10 yet, I think it will be about a year or two before he is ready to fully understand and help. In the meantime, the Ford is running the chipper/shredder to take care of yard waste (amazing how much even a small yard in the desert produces).
Probably my biggest beef with the 9N is the fact that the 3 point has what is called draft control rather than depth control. My personal opinion is that this design "feature" was incorporated because of the power limitations at the time the tractor was designed; I can't think of a single practical reason for having this other than to keep from lugging down the tractor and killing the engine. Draft control regulates the depth of the implement you are pulling to maintain a relatively constant engine load and rpm. What this means when using something like a blade to pull dirt for grading is that the blade is constantly being raised and lowered by the draft control in order to keep the engine load constant. That's great for the engine, but kind of screws up one's ability to grade a level roadway. I was constantly trying to anticipate the direction the blade would be adjusted and change the depth accordingly. Someone has come up with a mechanism to overcome this and give these tractors depth control, if this one had been in better condition I would have explored that possibility.

Oops. That can be a biggie.

Cool. Good luck with the training sessions for a budding knuckle-buster.

Verily. :(

Can you say "Boss 302 motor"? I knew you could. ;) Ar, ar, ar! In the interim, try to find the best torque RPM and set it there. It should give you fewer undulations.

You really shouldn't size the picture with the height/width attributes for two reasons: Browsers really do a shitty job of resizing (due to they have to do it quickly), and 2) I still have to download the entire photo at full size.
Resize your pics in some image editing software to whatever size you want. If you want to different sizes in your website, then save the image in two different sizes.
Look at your cabinet on http://www.mklange.cnc.net/CherryEntryCabinet.html
See how lousy that image looks? Now look at the original pic

All the lines are smooth, no jagged lines.
Other than that, nice woodwork!

Hi Mark -
Nice work... the planned Captain's bed looks good too!
One small suggestion... on the headboard, I'd add a bit more vertical material below the bottom shelf.... if the shelf's too low, a head can contact a corner.... raise it a few inches, and a head's more likely to contact a vertical surface... DAMHIKT...
Cheers -
Rob

Thanks for the kind comments. Also, thanks for the recommendation regarding the headboard -- that's a good modification, your concern is well-founded.
