Not Quite Farm Engineering or a Quick Bodge.

The Engineering thread is a bit too complex for me, however the quick fix and bodge thread has got a bit serious about using anything other than second-hand string to mend things.

I thought that a new thread showing things that we have made that don't really fit into either thread would be a good plan.

My first entry (as yet unpainted and still in production) could actually be the start of a thread called 'over engineering'

Bought some second hand girders for £100 and knocked up a stand for water butt to catch some roof water. Still upside down in the workshop in this picture....

Spreader stand, made from scrap surplus, but with a bit too much method in the madness to be a bodge. Not only is it stable to move or climb in and easier to hitch up than on pallets, but also gives some protection to the spreader from miss handling.

Still got more broken harrow tines to think of reuses for.

Can't wait for the day you sell it and someone drops those location cones straight through floor of Ifor

Another union of engineering and bogery, I made this leveler last year for doing tracks, but with a bit a bit of adjustment on the skids it does a nice job of smoothing weathered ditching spoil. Skids were set in the pics for putting some camber on tracks. Needs some ripping tines in front of the tram lines to loosen hard tracks though. The headstock was about the only part that survived destructive testing of the origional pure bodge creation.
