I like the coat rack idea. What I'd like is a design for holding multiple helmets as well. Something that won't poke into the liner when it's hanging. Any ideas?

I originally put the con rod on there to hold a helmet as its a nice rounded edge at the small end where I cocked up slightly is that particular rod isn't really long enough & I should have angled it up a little more, in the end I couldn't be bothered to take it off again ;)

I have been thinking about a design with a shelf at the top for a helmet & pegs underneath for coats etc, I just don't have enough scrap to make it at the moment & am using a borrowed welder so don't want to take the pee ;) I might make one out of timber at some point

You can buy a wire rack similar to what I have in mind but there is no fun in that =))

How about pistons?

a) they've got a rounded surface
b) they'd add to the length if you reckon the conrod on its own is too short
c) you can stick them on with an upward tilt to make up for the existing lack of angle. (Instead of a gudgeon pin, just fill it with 'glue' and stick it however you like)

I did wonder about pistons mate but I figured the edge from crown to side might dig in to helmet lining

I could have left the bottom clamp on the rod & that would give another 1 1/2 inches but it didn't look right

And the stool is finally finished

I dropped this over to a mate last night as he wanted a look & ended up leaving it there as he thought he might me able to flog it

10 minutes ago I got a call its sold & will be appearing in a race paddock somewhere near you in the near future ;) even better I have a tentative order for another which should do the bank balance a bit of good :)

In other news the large & very different project I have been working on occasionally for a few days seems to be working out well, I'm just waiting for a pair of wheels to be blasted then I should be able to put it together & show you the fruits of my labour :D

Hmmmm.....


If you're ever short of f**ked engine parts, just make mates with a few of the members here


If they don't have anything currently available, it probably won't be long till they do


(pm me for their names)
