    If you swap the engine for one of them Horrible Fright engines and change the generator to a inverter and use light leads you can get it small enough to fit in a Japanese convertible car.

    One of the MessFit geniuses can help you with the electronics and it'll be able to burn 1/16 rods.

    Add a thread spool from a sewing machine and call it a gas drive MIG.

    5" is doable with the original fuel tank and would require a custom radiator or sacrificing the battery box.

    Have seen 8" chops but they require a custom fuel tank in addition to a radiator and/or relocated battery.


    This was a 5" chop with $500 custom radiator:

    Is a sweet running machine and owner sold it earlier this year as he now has an SAE300 Perkins and Miller Trailblazer Pro 350 with Kubota D905 I brought back from the dead last year. Just sent the 300 home the other day after addressing a few things on it for him.

    I've never seen a better example of the results that are possible when a job done by someone who takes pride in what they do and is proud of the equipment they are repairing.

    The machine owner did most of the tank mounting and I just added a couple finishing touches.
