RECYCLING IN THE GREAT WHITE NORTH

 

KING OF OBSOLETE DOING WHAT I CAN WITH THE RECYCLED METAL BECAUSE I CAN'T AFFORD THE NEW STEEL FOR MY PROJECTS.

 

 

HERE WE ARE GETTING OLD UNDER GROUND FUEL TANKS FROM LEAF RAPIDS, MB. OF COURSE BUDDY BARRY IS DELIVERING THEM. THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE VERY NICE BOATS BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T GET ALL DENTED UP.

 

 

 

THE KoO SIGN FROM LAST SUMMER BEING MADE INTO A SHED. WE MUST USE EVERY SPACE IN THE "KINGDOM" FOR STORAGE BECAUSE I'M GETTING TO OLD TO FIND MY COLLECTABLES IN THE SNOW.

JULY 2005, MAKING SIDES ON BUDDY BARRY'S TRAILER TO HAUL THE LAST OF THE SCRAP METAL FROM THE SCRAP YARD.

THE FINISHED TRAILER, WOW DID IT TURN OUT NICE CONSIDER WHAT I HAD TO WORK WITH. ONCE AGAIN THE "KING" WORKED HIS MAGIC. LOL

THESE ARE SOME OF MY TANK SHEDS THAT ARE MADE OUT OF OLD FUEL TANKS. THIS IS KNOWN AS THE "CAT PARTS SHED" AND IT HAS A TROLLEY BEAM TO GET THE BIG STUFF TO THE BACK OF THE SHED. OF COURSE THE BEAM IS RECYCLED TOO. (WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE TAXMAN WILL BE CALLING THIS SHED YET, HE MIGHT BE CALLING IT "ADD $500". LOL)

1946 15B BUCYRUS ERIE DRAGLINE WITH A WALKER MAGNET LOADING SCRAP IN 2003

JULY 2005 XENA IS MY WINDSHIELD WIPER FOR THOSE RAINY DAYS.

NICE SAFE LOAD FROM RUTTAN MINE 2002

BUILT A CHICKEN OUT OF SCRAP STEEL FOR CUTTING SCRAP STEEL 2002

THE START OF A RAMP BOAT FROM A 3000 GALLON FUEL TANK 2002

THE FINISHED RAMP BOAT, WORKS GREAT, NOT BAD FOR SCRAP STEEL 2002

UPDATE ON RAMP BOAT JULY 2006

WE CHANGED THE MOTOR MOUNTING ON THE BACK OF THE BOAT AND DID SOME OTHER CHANGES. SO OF COURSE WE HAVE TO TEST IT OUT.

 

DECEMBER 2005

HERE ARE A FEW QUICK PICTURES OF MY LATEST PROJECTS IN THE "KINGDOM"

BUILT A CAR PORT FOR THE "BEL-AIR" CAR IN AN AFTERNOON WITH RECYCLED STEEL.

THE HOT WATER TANK IN THE "KINGDOM" QUIT SO WE WENT AND GOT A USED ONE. RECYCLING AT IT FINEST. LOL

MORE NICE TANKS ARRIVE ON A SUNDAY, THE CONTRACTOR WAS NICE ENOUGH NOT TO DENT THEM ALL UP.

THEN I NEEDED A QUICKY WOOD STOVE SO THIS IS WHAT  WHIPPED UP IN AN HOUR.

I MOVED THIS FROM THE FRONT PAGE, WILL UPDATE LATER.

TO THE PRESENT DAY LYNN LAKERS. IT IS GETTING VERY BORING HAVING YOU GUYS COMPLAINING ON MY SCRAP METAL THAT I'M RECYCLING. EVERY SUMMER I GO THROUGH THE SAME COMPLAINTS ABOUT MY SCRAP YARD AND MUSEUM TYPE YARD. IN THE EYES OF THE GOVERNMENT PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH THEY THINK IT IS GREAT THAT I'M RECYCLING THIS FAR NORTH. SO I THINK YOU SHOULD LOOK AROUND AND WORRY ABOUT OTHER THINGS THAT ARE MORE IMPORTANT. SO IN OTHER WORDS GET A LIFE.

UPDATE JAN 11 2005

THE TOWN OF LYNN LAKE SENT A LETTER TO THE RAIL ROAD WHO IN TURN GAVE ME 30 DAYS TO REMOVE 300 TONS OF SCRAP METAL FROM THE TRACKS. WHERE IS HAVE BEEN USING AS A LOAD OUT AREA. SO AFTER 4 YEARS THE TOWN HAS FINALLY PUT ME OUT OF THE SCRAP METAL RECYCLING. IT IS KIND OF FUNNY BECAUSE THEY ARE NOW ADVERTISING FOR SOMEONE TO BE A RECYCLE COORDINATOR THE DAY I START SHIPPING MY SCRAP METAL AT -35C. ALSO THE WAY I LOOK AT IT, IF I HAVE TO CLEAN UP MY SCRAP METAL, THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE IN THIS TOWN THAT SHOULD BE CLEANING UP TOO. MORE TO COME ON THIS.
