Little Backhoes...

These are going to be interesting... I was approached about building a pair of miniature Case 580 backhoes... I studied them and decided I should be able to make it happen...

I'm starting with these 2 machines. Twin Fords... One is a 1983 the other is a 1984.


This is where I'm headed with them...


I started cutting steel...
 I made patterns out of my sign material and "traced" it with the plasma cutter... 4 of these pieces were cut out for the backhoe...
 These will be the front end loader arms...


 Plated the entire front end loader arm...

 I day invested in drilling holes...
 Everything is pulled square with the ratchet strap...
Not bad...










More later,
Kurt
