-10 degrees, test run for the stove.



Nice and warm inside with a little smoke rolling out the pipe. A metal camping plate turned upside down for a stove pipe weather cap.



Need to finish welding today, make a hitch, paint the frame and bolt the house down.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

I hope all the little-guys and gals are feeling OK. My son (4) has been sick and coughing, barfing, and running a fever off-and-on for 6 days.

I think he's getting over it just in time. smile

I decided to toss together a pitch fork for fish today with some junk out in the garage.

Cold rolled 1/4" rod, I rolled the bends and cut the pieces..



I bent a strap to captivate the center section of the tines.



dry fit befor drilling and notching the strap for plug weld.



strap welded, tines cut to length.



a little while later...



shank is heavy black pipe.



handle is thin wall pipe, inserted and plug welded, a short chunk of rod plug welded at the top of the handle with a ring for a rope.



I know it's not the best of materials of the best spear, but I'll heat the spear head red and quench it to try to harden the tines a bit.

It's a starter spear.

My Christmas gift to Nathan.
