My name is Carl Sharp and I live in Chino Hills, CA. My primary job is as a skiploader owner/operator. I am also a welder, blacksmith and mechanic amongst other things. I have always been interested in old industrial machinery, and have a few flywheel engines and two John Deere Model D tractors as well as some other oddball stuff.
I belong to the California Blacksmith Association, Western Antique Power Associates, The Vista Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum and pending, ACMOC.
While picking up a 1956 BB Miller forklift I had purchased I saw a Cat crawler parked under a tree, made inquiry, and soon took it home too. It's a 1935 twenty-two in pretty good shape, and ran about four years ago. It's gonna need a little work, tho, and I'm gonna have a bunch of questions, so be warned!
My first question is about cross-posting on these lists, (like this post). Should I ask the same questions to both lists? Or is there enough of a membership overlap that it is not necessary, or is it considered rude or improper?
Thanks for reading. For more on picking up the Cat, (literally) see:
