  1. how’s the rope tow project going?

    • I have not worked on the tow since late June due to a knee injury and time, but the return is 100% done and all the sheaves are waiting to be assembled on the drive, i have a new 1 HP motor all picked out.

  2. Hi, I’m trying to build a new snowmaking pump with a 4 gpm cat pump and 2 hp motor. I have pretty much everything completed except one thing. I can’t figure out how to wire my motor to a cord to plug into an outlet or connect it power switch or something like that. Any tips?
