shovel build trials & tribulations..
Are tribulations the good parts? OK well if they are I'll start with welding progress. I did all the welds on the frame to a finished standard yesterday and today I began on the ancilliary components like the top motor mount shown here. This looked a bit delicate which was OK in an arty way of course, but when I'd welded it thoroughly I was sure it was stiff enough to do it's job. The upper part in the pic is stainless steel - the other parts mild steel.
