Hello from South Africa


New member
Hi There

I am Madmax from Pretoria, South Africa. I own a Massey Furguson 35X and a Murray Ride on Tractor (just blew the motor). I am just crazy about building my own implements and tools. Some of the items I already built are, Turf rake, 3 x trailers, Mobi Table (Mobile Table) Shredder using a old lawn mower, Powa Barrow (Power wheel barrow) using my Murray tractor, Power spade using a tiller,fire fighter, sliding hammer, Ring roller etc. I built all of these without any plans.I use my own ideas or ideas from pictures.I design an plan as I go along. Most of these were built using scrap metal. I only build two items from plans and this is a Stained glass Clock and a sheet metal brake. There is nothing like the satisfaction you get from something you built yourself.

You have a great forum. Hope I can help and learn here.

Here is a photo of my firefighter and sheet metal brake.
