Need to check yard sales this spring for a heavy duty sewing machine....

Nice stuff Shaft! Did you glue or hot air weld your pads? Valves in them? It's so cool seeing stuff others have made!

Sewing machines are so hard to find for a good deal. If people have a commercial machine for some reason they think they are worth retail.

I "heat welded" with a cheapo heat gun and silicone roller (that was about the same price as the heat gun) and put some halkey-roberts valves in which are good for rolling and to let water out if they get submerged, when using the heat gun/roller combo it is really difficult to get it 100% sealed.

She is a beast of a machine. Probably 20 years old and still a bad ass. Very few broken needles. She is computerized and immediately stops instead of breaking them. She has been acting up lately, it may be time for a tune up.

It cost a little bit more but I find this one much better. The foot pump is a little easier to use, it outputs slightly more water per pump and I like the smaller overall footprint that the system has. Also the square buckets are great for stacking on top of each other. Either with a lid or we fabricated some little aluminum tabs that hook on the edge of the small bucket and allow the top bucket to rest over the bottom bucket giving you a better height for your wash station.

I came up with this to secure my trailer, the arms pass through adjacent holes in the wheel and lock around the leaf spring. Works even with my brakes. Not bullet proof but as long as it's not the easiest thing to steal hopefully I'll be good.

That is super rad! Beats looping a cable through it etc.

Yeah that's how I used to do it but I'm pretty sure I could chew through even the beefier cables with a pair of side snips.

hand wash

This is one I made years ago, the black divider in the middle is a piece of UHMW I snagged out of the garbage at work. Drilled two holes clear through, threaded three of them. Just stuck a piece of 1/4 in in for the outlet, it just fits in tight and will swivel. Cut a slot in between the two holes so it will fit down over the side of the bucket. The Soap holder is a pocket off of Blue Jeans with a loop sewn at the top and a wire threw the loop with hook that hang over the bucket. Also took a picture of the lid we use for the bucket. The bucket doubles as a garbage can in the raft and the slots allow you to put garbage in without opening the lid.

throw bag

I also make my own throw bags. Purchase rope at the local farm supply store. Sew bottom from Blue Jeans. Started to put top on from the old roll up chair bags, closes down better. The weight of the blue jean, when dipped in the river (which is usually is wet after first day) really allows you to get good distance. I also put a small piece of closed cell foam at the end of the rope so bag will float. In a couple of them I have put in a star shaped out of ASB that will grab a rope stretched out in the water. Like a bow line that fed out of a stuck raft. I have sown in a short strap with Velcro on it to secure rope to D ring in front that is easily pulled free in emergency
