Default Projects

Hi everyone,
Have been looking at your forum for long time and decided to finally join. Lots of talented folks and neat projects on here. I've looked at and borrowed ideas from many of your projects, so I thought I'd post a few of mine. First one is a splitter I built. Like alot of things, probably could have bought one cheaper, but wanted to have one different than the store bought ones. Next one is a roping chute, these things are a little pricey to buy no more then there is to it. I added an air cylinder so my kids can open and close it. The last one is an enclosed grapple for a forklift. We needed something to pick up loose paper so I put that together.

Bill

Looks like real nice work. I'd like to see some closeups of the splitter too.
