Day 18 – More motors!

Went back to Advantage Forklift Ltd. again today!

Plundered the other dead forklift – Got some new motors, another horn, and another set of forklift lights!

Breakdown of costs:

  • Gas to Brantford – $20
  • Food for the trip – $10
  • Car insurance broken down by month for the day – $10
  • One skipped chemistry class – ($20 from tution?)
  • Salvaging a forklift? Priceless.

New motors will probably be used in an electric motorcycle (at some point in the future) and or a giant gyroscope…. Here are some pictures!

    I said I’d comment, but sadly I don’t understand half of what you’re doing here… 😉
