    Lightbulb Ding Dong

    Needed a tough enclosure for a new doorbell button and gate keypad. More than one delivery driver could't find the old one and would just drive away. So I wanted something that would stand out a little. I had some leftover 14ga. treadplate that was a good starting point.
    Cut out the pieces and did a little machine work, then TIG to assemble. Smooth, prime, paint, and install.

    Done deal.

    That turned out sweet! The added "RING BELL" detail should be hard for your delivery guy to miss.

    I should include a trap door. Hey, I saw this duplicated on the "other" peoples forum on WW...which begs the question, which units did you use? lol.

    This forum was down for so long. I had to get my welding forum "fix" somewhere else.

    It was welded up with my PA-140ST.

    Now I see they cross-posted it to their area on WW. Strange.

    And have cross posted it on Tractorbynet now too. lol. Hey you're famous. I've seen that they use this type post to run up post counts to gain street cred. But their viewership per post is dropping. Over on TBN they came along to support the forum about a year and a half after we did. So to make it look like they had as many posts, they started posting these things up. Now they are over our post count and well our total views. In fact, with every one of their posts, our views even without added posts are inching further ahead. We try to post bonafied content and TBN is a forum that is truly close to my heart, so I post in other areas and try to be helpful as I can. Many hours of my life have had my butt "Planted" on a tractor seat, and no not just a glorified lawnmower either. We're talking 150-225 hp class size as the largest.
