to cut a long story short the bike is due for rego and rego inspectors in my neck of the wood with the necessary licence/ticket to check motorcycles are few and far between.
anyway the bloke from work i was chasing couldnt be found so im thinking.... now who else can do this for me when i remember an old mate that has a workshop in the industrial area and who does bike rego checks.quick pop around and a mag and we will do the check tomorrow.
i jump back in the car and do a quick u-ee through his back yard and im stopped in my tracks.
wow s/s conical and s/s tanks. :rolleyes:
quick trip back home to grab the dig so feast your eyes on what may become my micro set up. ;)
just hope it is his and is for sale at a reasonable price.from the signage on it its past life was in some sort of sandblasting setup.
will find out tomorrow and hopefully i can score the lot for a reasonable price.a bit of work to get it up to scratch but hey what a cool find. ;)

cheers

Nice. Looks like a bloody big conical. Now there's an idea - walk in conical :lol:
Let us know how it goes, and if it does I expect many photos of shiny SS!

Hi
Looks like some big stuff.
I could imagine my Phil mill working all day to crack the grains for that size.
Cheers
Ray
BTW get it on the ute and bring it to the next IBU's meeting and we could make a huge batch of Imperial IPA

Go the 'D'

Look forward to lot's of questions about "How do I ???"

6mm!!! Jeez I think the Arab is right. Rocket brewing it is then!!

Just think, Big D's Rocket Ale.

Just as well you can fabricate stainless Dave.

Strewth!
You'll have to grind off the roof of a Range Rover to make a big enough false bottom...!

No great loss ;-)
