today I decided to get some cross poles built out of steel so I can hook the linn tractor to the Lombard sleighs in the cross pole design.
I had some original cross poles in the yard so I dug them out and cut some drill steel to be used instead of wood. plus I used the wood stove to heat up the bent cross pole brackets like a forge so I could straighten them. the dogs liked the extra hot shop this afternoon for some reason, lol.

since there still is no snow here at the end of the world I was able to dig out my all steel Lombard sleigh and pop the deck off. I then put the small log bunks on the all wooden Lombard sleigh. next the big log bunks went on the all steel sleigh. now if there was snow on the ground this would have been a big project because the forklift would be stuck and sliding all over the place due to lack of traction.

it was a nice day yesterday so I decided to splash the paint on the big log bunks so they look good in the pictures or youtube videos. that is when I realized that the back all steel Lombard sleigh bunk has no high-low cross pole hitches. this is not a problem because no snow I can find the high-low hitches in the Lombard sleigh parts pile. the bunk was brought up to the shop and I cut out the back out to weld in some plates to get the high-low hitches installed. 20 years ago when I built these all steel sleigh bunks I used some pretty heavy duty materials because I was in the scrap metal business.

today I did not feel that lucky in being able to over come the Gods of Gravity in welding the high-low hitches on. so I used the Green Toy to make it easy welds with the 3/16 rods a 190amps. it did not take long to weld then get the sleigh back together before the snows come tonight.

Looks good!! I like to see the old equipment still doing what it was built for.

I don't think you'll have to wait long for the white stuff!

I was not planning on working on the Lombard sleighs this year but I did. now to get some good videos. it is so hard to explain to people how sleighs work and steer.

Thanks K.O.!

The sleds look great! Can't wait to see them in action.

Here is a video we shot back in February:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOlVfAzZInM&t=103s

Since the sleds don't back-up all that well we had to use the Cletrac to drag them back for us. On ice they tracked so-so
and I am sure with a load they would do better.

will watch the video when the internet is faster but it is too slow on a sunday night for any thing. yes just like my linn tractor it needs a support cat because it is a highway truck for the bush.

today we woke up to snow and a list of things to be done on the Linn tractor and Lombard sleighs. with the snow on the ground I moved the cat train up to the shop so I can work on it a little better. then the welding cables from the shop were too short so I dragged over the welding sleigh to do the welding on the Lombard sleighs. I did acquired so wood for filming and cabled it down to the sleigh bunks. I only put 2 pieces of wood on the wooden Lombard sleigh in fear it might collapse being 70 years old or older.

I found a nice surprise today in the Lombard sleigh parts pile. the steel plate on the ski bunk had the date 10. 52. welded on it. so that means the sleigh bunk was repaired 67 years ago.

we still don't have enough snow to have fun with the sleighs, today it is windy and trying to snow so tomorrow it will melt like it has been doing for the last month. I have most of my sleighs up by the shop so I can work on them so they are ready when the snows do come. here are a few pictures from today.
