Caractacus Potts the inventor lived on a farm and built Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. He reminds me of my eldest son. This week he made some tractor axle stands out of scrap metal that we have lying around the farm.
Part of an old lorry lying up on the rock outside the farm yard. That's an old damaged oil tank some one threw out. We cut off one end and made it into a calf hutch. It would make a good pig house too.
Steel parts lying on the lorry bench number one son made.
The welding and assembly of the axle stands.
The axle stands just need a lick of paint and they are ready for work. Notice the bolts for adjusting them to different heights. Time to take the tractor wheels off. Not bad for a couple of hours work. We have seen similar for sale for ninety quid! To quote Del Boy again:
"This time next year we will be Millionaire's."
