Construction 2004  

The pictures featured here show the forging of the counterweight bucket hangers. These were originally switch linkages from the railroad, which we hammered and welded into heavy-duty eye bolts. Together, these two pieces hold the entire 2000 pounds of counterweight.

Heating the parts in the forge Is it hot yet?
Heating it up again Getting closer
Now for a little welding Add more heat and check it again
