Musky Master fishing line - 18lbs for regular models, 27lbs for the really big ones like the CC8800. You can find it online, even eBay sells it.

Quick question guys. Does anyone know a website that I can order paint for Komatsu yellow and cat yellow, etc? I search but only find places that I can't really tell if they are the right yellow or or. Thanks a bunch

As far as I know you can only get Cat yellow at a dealer. Part number 4C-4200.

Just a generalized question, I have people on Facebook asking to buy some of the parts I've made for my Ford F-250 I.e: the combo box and plow. Truth is im not much of a production type builder I mostly just build for myself and I wouldn't be making these all by hand so my question is how would you guys go about it?

I've looked at maybe pewter casting or resin casting haven't looked into 3D printing as I've got no experience with casting/mould making or auto cad.


Any help would be much appreciated.
