Thread: Doggy, Dog feeder

    Default Doggy, Dog feeder

    A friend wanted a birthday present for her dog so this is what I'm making... A dog feeder.
    Something simple and fun to do... It's not done yet but here are some pics of the process

    You guys are too funny. But either way, creative nice project.

    I took my son to the junk yard for ideas and parts. We came back and repaired two of our cars. Will try harder next trip to think about welding not car repairs.

    I wish I could find a local junk place to get old rusty junk... gears, chains, few car parts.

    Thats pretty cool. There are some really good ideas in that piece such as the rocker arms. I had to take a second look to realize what they were.

    Are those valve spring seats for the eyes?

    Looks like retainers. I know it's probably just some tubing, but the collar looks like it could be a replacement valve seat. I'm still looking for where he hid the keepers, since he stayed with the valve train motif. I was kinda expecting the tail to be hanging off a spring.

    I wanted to do a spring on the head or tail but she didn't want that, thought it might scare the dog if it wiggled.
    The eyes are just 3/4" tubing ground at an angle, the collar is tubing as well. But the valve spring seats are a good idea!!! Maybe next one...
    I don't have any old parts laying around or I would make some really cool stuff. I had to pay $5 for 4 rocker arms.

    My wife is in love with this thing and we have a dog so I'm just waiting on her to say, "Honeeeeyyyyy, your so Strong and Handsome...." What do you want dear?

    That looks cool! What did you use for the balls on the feet, and what gauge is the sheet metal you used on the face? I have a ton of valve train left over from disassembling old heads, but I never thought of using the parts on a metal dog feeder. The comment about wanting to change the name plate when the current dog dies made me laugh. How many people actually think ahead on stuff like that? Now where to put the leftover valve guides and valves...

    I used Utility grade chrome steel balls for the toes, nose and pupils. The nose has had a ton of welding Ontop of the ball to get the look. The sheet metal was 22ga. I think....it was scrap from another job. Pretty easy job, some time in it but you get to sit back n relax and not be on a deadline!

    I thought the legs looked funny so I added some "hair" in the corners front and back just to fill some space.
    It looks better in person than in the pics..

    That is very cool! I got a piece in Colorado (I think it was there) of a dog putting a golf ball. Still have it today in my office at work!

    Well, good news.

    The customer is extremely happy! She was worried her dog is would not eat out of it but he went right to it.

    That made me spit coke out my nose at work!

    Awesome piece. I think the head on a spring is a good idea, but I know my dog would spaz if it moved.
