My son calls it the Toy Box. It's been a year that I have been working on building the tall addition onto my old shop and reroofing the existing building to match. This week I finally got my first repair job into the new shop for a cylinder head rebuild and rear crankshaft leak. I still have some electrical wiring to do yet. My SIL will be down in two weeks to finish wiring the 120 & 240 plug-ins. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Very nice. It's real satisfying when you can do it yourself. I'll bet you can see it a mile away, well, maybe two. Three? Jim

That is a really nice looking shop, inside and out! That good old 450 looks happy as can be "resting" in there.

Charlie you should have built it about 5 feet taller than you could really see it from the freeway!

Duanes,

The inside of the shop has a 16 1/2 foot ceiling. I figured that was high enought. The building with the "IH" is visible from the interstate, but you have to look between a few trees and around the roof line of the warehouse that sets to the south. Have you driven by during the day or after the sun had gone down? Going east is the best. Charlie

JMP,

I'm working on a new alternator mounting bracket that uses a tightner strap across the back, I think you should be able to see it in the pictures. I make the splittings stands that are in the first pictures, and they will fit most all row crop tractors that have a side rail. I'm working on making some brackets that will allow the Front splitting stand to fit the A, B & C series of tractor that do not have side rails. My e-mail is open. charlie

I meet Charlie this summer @ RedPowerRoundUp 2012 in Ill. Then in early November got a H from south western MN. Stored the tractor/trailer @ Charlies shop for couple days while went to eastern Iowa. I love that shop, only hope to have 1 as nice as his.
