Smile Cherry Tow Truck

I finally got a red ribbon at the Minnesota State Fair (12 days of fun). I now have 1 white, 1 red, 4 blue and 1 purple ribbon. When it was returned to me, it was wrapped with blister pack. They said "it was so beautiful we wanted to protect it". They also got a comitment from me to enter again next year. I volunteered 4 days this year and several people came up to me and made very positive coments. Most of my other toys are on display at the library in Ladysmith Wis.

Outstanding Burt, you should be proud and all of us yellow guys are proud of you as well. How much of the truck did you make on the machine?

Thanks for posting and keep it up my friend.

Mark

Very nice work Burt, you have come a long way with your Stinger. Do you design the projects yourself or buy them on the Internet ..... Congratulations on the RED ribbon.

Wow Burt, fantastic!!

May I ask how much of it you were able to cut out on the Stinger and how much of it you had to use other equipment to produce? How much hand carving/crafting did you have to do?

Also, Joey has learned a new word everyone, so watch out. We'll all be septuagenarians now.

No Joey, I'm a quinquagenarian (sounds like kwing-kwa-genarian).

This truck I finished last November, Before I got the Stinger. The loader behind it in 1 of the pictures has several parts cut on the Stinger. I drew them in Aspire and cut them much faster than using 4 machines to cut and finish. I have plans that were gifts, but I prefer to go to dealerships and get literature and design from there. I also take pictures of varius things I would like to build. When I started if you used plans they had mistakes and I would have to remake several parts because they would not fit or work. Dealers want to get rid of previous models literature.I plan to make some pickups and Jeeps for Christmas (Toys For Tots & womens shelter), my plan is to post them for anyone who wants to make them. The toys I donate I use comercial wheels, for the nice toys I make the wheels. Comercial wheels are 2in, the ones I make are 2 1/4 Walnut tire Maple rim. The base I keep around 3 in. this is a good size for a child to handle. I use a 3/8 axel, I like them heavy enough to use for a roller skate. You never know what they will see!!! Yes I do my own designing, from pictures and other info I can get including the internet.

Thanks for the info Burt. Amazing work.

Maybe for the next State Fair you can do it all with the Stinger. Heck, maybe you can make a miniature Stinger making a miniature truck.
