    No doubt a great highlight in Ross's life.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Hey buddy! I wanted to say that I am proud to call you a friend. You are making a difference in someone elses life and I truly admire you for taking the time to help Ross. Being a technical person myself I can say that this was not an easy project and I am sure you have quite a bit of data with regards to the build. Please do yourself a favor and cover your behind legaly in case something goes wrong. I hate to put a negitive light, but I have seen many things done with good intentions only to be turned around latter on. Example, the brakes quit working.....

    Thank you for sharing and again you are a good man....

    Tangle - I am FLOORED.

    You've undertaken a significant engineering challenge and come up with a good solution at every turn. The end product is simply fabulous, although I suspect Ross and grandma won't have half the appreciation of what you've created that I do.

    Sir, my hat is off to you!

    Pretty sweet machine there!
    Welds? Wire is better IMO. Stick is stick. I spent several years grinding down my stick welds before I realized the difference. I also know that paint can't cover everything. LOL! Just poking at you.
    I think it's a job well done, and not only that, but a dedication to your community deserves a merit badge. I really wish I was surrounded by neighbors like you have there. I would more than likely spend a lot more time getting to know them and helping them as well. This big city suspicion of my neighbors is not exactly conducive to my health. Many of them are being abducted in the middle of the night......not by aliens, but by the local constabulary.
    Consider yourself blessed in many ways. Consider your time and efforts well spent. Not everyone is lucky enough to be in your position. Make the most of it, and keep up the good work.

    A good job, done on a good project, by a good person, for a good cause! Well Done!
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
    If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.

    Such acts of selfless kindness are rare these days. You, sir deserve a special pat on the back, and an internet handshake.
    Outstanding job.

    Thanks Tangle, you just helped re-affirm my belief in humanity.

    Looks great

    I know you said you're not finished, but don't forget some type of seat belt system to help hold the boy in.

    Ridiculously cool - the simplicity and functionality of the steering mechanism alone is genius. The care in the design tells a lot about the heart of the designer as well.

    Of course, lights and a flag might make it even cooler... and a bit more visible, even if it will just be used in the yard/driveway.

    As a person who grew up with a little brother that was "physically challenged". I have seen many variations of "get around" chairs carts and tools. That sir is excellent work. You are truly a good human. You can tell you took the time and thought to do that and keep doing it until it was right.

    Good for you, and that little boy.
