Great work, it looks like it is wanting to keep going strait ahead when you turn, is the rear diff locked? If so that is what is giving you problems turning.

Hi Andre.
Welcome to the Collective.  :borg:

You're a lucky Fella. Well stocked workshop. Great mobile project, AND sunshine too!  :thumbup:

We need more sunshine around here.....  :D

 things  that  interest  me 
 well i enjoy  building  tractors and  enjoy welding  but most  of  the  time  a  like  making pointless  chips  on my  machines  as  i have had  no  formal training in machining  so i go   try different  tools  to find  which cuts  best  but i soon  hope to build a  vise  for  my  shaper  and  a qctp for  my  lathe.
