Anybody know the location of these plans? I had an e-mail from "ldwsmith" but my reply was undeliverable and keeps coming back. I don't want this guy to think I'm ignoring his request. Thanks for the help.......T

Thanks for trying to get back to me. I am not sure what is going on with the e-mail. Sorry about that.
In the mean time between sending you the e-mail and now, I got the plans from Matchman. He was helpful and sent me a link to the online plans. I have since printed them out and bought the wood last night! Can't wait to get it slapped together. Hopefully, I will have it done by Sunday.
Also...Any recent changes I should be aware of? I have the plans with 8 boards on seat. I also have the plans for the back brace. I would be curious to know if you have any other cool ideas for this puppy.
Thanks again for the help.

LDWSMITH.....You have the latest plans I think. Matchman did too. No other improvements made. I have built some seats with a built in 12v power supply. I mount a wooden box at the back of the seat so that a 12v gelcell just fits inside. Then I run wires to a positive and negative stud or short cables so you can just clip your lighting or any other accessory to them. Also, on one of my seats there is also a cigarette lighter adapter for a cell phone charger or a plug in type accessory. I call it "The Hot Seat"....Good luck with the building-and USE THAT BACK BRACE!.........T

Is the backrest supposed to fold forward over the seat or backwards toward the back of the sled? Without rounding off the forward edge of the back rest vertical supports it doesn't seem like it would fold forward, but if it's supposed to fold backward the back rest alone would hang over the back edge of the tub, not to mention the support rod...I've got everything pretty much cut, and am ready to assemble but I don't want to screw this puppy up...any help guys?
Thanks

Once the seat back support is attached to the seatback (hinged to the block between the seat back supports) just fold the support on the hinge parallel with the seat back. When the pins are removed, just slide it under the seat bottom and lay the seat back down on top of the base flat behind the seat bottom. The rear support (two small blocks screwed to the base behind the seat) should be far enough back to allow the seat back to lay flat. Hope this helps. ......T

Yep, that makes sense. I didn't think of folding the support arm under the seat back...I thought it would be kinda screwy to have it stick out that far out the back of the tub. Thanks for the slap up along side my head TBone...and great design work!

I haven't had any luck printing these pages. I can't get each page to fit on one sheet of paper. Help?

dmoore,
Right click on the link, choose "SAVE AS", save it to a folder that you can find in your My Documents folder, go to that folder when done downloading, right click on the image and choose "Print".
I had the same problem when I just opened the link with IE. Hope I helped.

    • Interesting. I have used it in the past and have better results with nutty butter. SOn in law shot doezilla last week and the fat was unbelievable on her. I saved a few nice chunks and will put it out to see what happens. 
    • yep. first cut them off with the meat saw. Then cut again with hack saw. Then a little bit of filing. Takes a while but no mess.well, not much anyway. lol 
    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
