OT - I think he has done this before

As you can tell - Today I'm looking at videos about wiring harnesses to get some ideas.

I think he has done this before or they like to use the fast play button. GGG

Notice:

The notes all over the board to refer to and save time. NO need to refer back to some list.
Also how much space the story board takes up and the other story board in the back ground.

Very Interesting about the kind of tape used and why.

Oh, I need one of these machines for the five wiring harnesses I need and for the one that I might end up selling in the next 5 years. Ha ha ha - LOL

That was neat to see. Machine seems pretty simple at the heart of it!

Cool machine! I've never seen the actual machine; thanks for posting.smiling smiley

I've used harness tape for many years. It's a little hard to find but worth it. I include harness tape in some of my Corvair fuse panel kits to recover the exposed harness when the old panel is removed. Here's how it looks when done by hand:

Back in the early 90's when I started my first street rod ground up 1955 F-100, I visited Mike Chesser's Emporium in Lawrenceville Ga...outside of Atlanta. He had a huge shop with all kinds of cars and ford f series trucks in construction. He took me for a quick tour of his buildings and had told Classic Truck Magazine and one other Hot Rod Mag editor in his office to hold on...he would be right back.

One of the buildings had a wire room...he had two or three 4X8 panels set up with all kinds and colors of wire...and as you pulled the wire to the part that needed it, it reached a peg with that part labeled at the correct peg that gave you the color and wire size and length you needed to wire that part. I was really impressed with that...it was set up primarily for 48-56 F-100's but had notes for like 50 Merc's, etc I think he told me....he had a huge football sized yard full of both waiting for ground up restoration...everything he did was 1st class...I originally went to check on installing a Chevelle front clip on my F-100 Frame which I did later on.

My truck turned out nice...and rode and handled great....did not have to even have the front end aligned...put 30,000 trouble free miles on the truck before I had to sale it.

You all love photos so I have included a before and after...

The machines are no longer made probably because when OSHA seen it the company saw dollar's flying out the windows in fines. That thing is downright dangerous.

And that kind of thinking is exactly why we as a nation are seeing all of our production going overseas.

Be BOLD! Take RISKS! LIVE FREE !
