    Very nice! How much did that cost you in supplies?

    As far as cost I got the tires for $5 each at harbor freight have to see how good they will hold up. I got the steel scrap and told them they story and they gave it to me for free its 1/4" diamond plate it shouldn't break lolol. I had to pay for the round steel tubing though that was about $10. I also have bushings in each of the pivots, those cost about $ 15 total. If any of you want more pics or drawing files let me know I drew it up on the comp.

    looks great, the only thing is it looks like the arm may not be long enough. you might find yourself hugging the machine.

    I'm not sure. If you look at the trash cans as a guage, I think that the foot plate may just be extra large.

    Looks good! Can we see some more pic's?
