Default the Green Toy

I finally bought a new computer so I can see the outside world again. I also acquired a 1976 AM General M816 wrecker that needs love. i'm also finding out that the military does everything with man power not work smarter not harder. today I whipped up a boom holder because at my age lifting the travel support pipes is too hard on my back. considering it was a sunday morning and thought was required to cut angles the boom holder turned out very well.

KOO is ba-ack.....

and boing ! I just thought of something.

that thread I started asking about those e-bay portable CNC plasma
cutters.....Perfect for the KOO !

It can ship via the "Brown Rugby Team", and we can e-mail files
for burnout...A win win.

Boom holder looks great. How much weight do you think it will hold? Nice color too.

not sure, the boom was in the down position and that is how I built the holder around it. it is more to keep the boom from bouncing around or side to side on these so-called roads of the north.
