in getting ready to set up some of my scaffolding I found that somehow a whole stack of horizontal braces either did not make the trip out here or are still in the 1 trailer of mine that has not been brought out yet
 So I went to my stock pile in search of some pipes to make them out of

So I made enough of these to set up any amount of scaffolding I need

I think I have something like 30 or 40 scaffold frames But with the stock of 1 1/4" pipe that I have I could make many more if need be but it only takes 6 frames to build a scaffold high enough to work at the tops of the columns Next I might decide to make more scaffold boards that hook on instead of using 2x12 planks 
 I have 3 or 4 aluminum scaffold boards now

Made a couple crucial additions to the forklift boom that I also use on the forks of the loader on the Ford backhoe

http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/f4af7343-6655-471e-b018-a49c.jpg
 First off the extension allows the boom to reach 25 ft high

http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/35d58e7a-0682-4f4a-a352-7ee6.jpg
the next thing I made is a cradle to bolt on the extension so I will be able to pickup and raise the trusses without leaving the seat of the backhoe
bur equally important is I will be able to disconnect from the truss after it is welded in place without having to climb up to the top also the cradle has a pocket that the center vertical member rests it to give me even more control over how the truss moves around 
http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/99e6421f-bc64-48c4-a63e-a02c.jpg
I can lift the heaviest truss without needing to extend the hoe bucket back for counter weight and the tractor is stable enough to cautiously maneuver around with the truss up in the air

nothing like being able to manage little things like eating . that crane support looks like it will stay put , are you doing all the work by you`re self ?

Nope all 3 of us me myself and I are working well together 
 I do the cutting then it gets welded together by me while me and I argue with myself the same goes for the digging and covering of the hole I dug the hole then it was covered and packed by me while myself kept saying that is not good enough Jane has to give myself a reality talk every once in a while by explaining to us that we are not building it for the 40 year old wild man of days gone by. and we no longer need a building like this one

You guys talk about your dependency on microwaves and grills  brings back night mares of my first wife. When she and I first married she literally burned a hole in a sauce pan while trying to boil water. For that reason out of self preservation I taught myself how to cook what ever I wanted.
 Wife #2 Jane is a good cook but for the past several years I have been doing almost all of the cooking again.
but at lest I've gotten her to start doing some baking again. 
 And no Eddy she does not need Louise's cookie recipe
