    I have a few tools to work metal with and was wondering if there are any good plans for a multi-band beam antenna, say a 20" to 30' yagi? Would like to get as many bands as possible on an antenna.

    You have a droolworthy shop there, OM!

    I'd look through older ARRL antenna books. You could probably go into business. :)

    That is an awesome piece of machine! I don't know what it is, but my other ham buddy I am sure would know exactly what it is. I will trade you shops. ;)

    I'm working on a force 12 knockoff. I found the plans on the internet. Your shop is cleaner than mine. Where's the heliarc?

    Thanks for the replies. I took these pics when we first moved to our new house 8 years ago, the shop is a lot messier now. :D

    Just finished making gin pole brackets and pulley head, for an upcoming tower (48') take down.

    The vertical knee mill in the picture is a Bridgeport made in 1968. I purchased it soon after moving into our home, unloaded it from the trailer with a backhoe and then moved it into the garage with a 2 ton shop crane (mill weighs 1 ton).

    I also have a 12x36 metal turning lathe, miller 140 wire feed welder, metal saw, and a bunch of tooling for both mill and lathe, a bunch!

    KI6J, do you have a link to those plans? would like to take a look at them, thanks.
