Exclamation Big round stainless sink- cheap

I really wanted a kitchen sink that was round. But they were very expensive. Then I saw a stainless steel punch bowl at Sam's club for approx $50. And "the light dawned"! We now have a huge stainless sink. John put the sink stuff-drain in the bottom- and viola, roses and bluebirds. My sink. It's in the Photo Album I' not advanced enough to put the pics on this page. This was my one true inspiration!!! I just had to wait until my son put it on the photo album!!! Now all I have to do is figure out something to do with the leftover rack-i'm sure it will come to me. This one was at the Sam's Club in Lewisville, TX. Silver suz

How did he bore out the hole, and how is it rimmed (i.e. seated to the countertop)?

I was told a hole saw was used. Or drill a whole round of tiny holes til the metal pops off and then grind it to roundness. How it fits into the sink counter? Haven't designed that, other than in my mind's eye. I want it to stick out and be low enough for me. We are using oval perforated polished aluminum. The bowl will partly rest on that. All the cabnet doors are the perforated aluminum. suz P.S. at least the floor is in, elephant ears and all.

That is my sons and he informs me that it is a 1986 Toyota with a turbocharged 22re, solid axle swap, welded rear end, 35" boggers, snorkel, and $20 paint job.

I've been thinking that I might want to do something similar to that in the bathroom of my Limited, if I decided to go with an entirely different countertop and such. Saw some great heavy gauge stainless steel mixing bowls at Linens n' Things that would work the same as your approach.

What?

Eric,
It's like you're speaking a different language or something....



Cool sink. We have two big mixing bowls from Target and had the thought but now that I see it done I HAVE to do it too!

Hehe We are. Her son and I understand each other perfectly! It's Yota Speak.

Translation:

Her son owns a 86 Toyota Extra Cab truck with a 4cyl fuel injected turbo engine known as the 22re Turbo engine. That's the actual engine designation form Toyota. Sort of like a Vortec 5.7.
He removed the IFS front suspension and put a solid axle under it from a 1980-1985 solid axle truck to increas wheel travel to make it perform better offroad. He Lincoln locked/welded the rear axle. Basically he welded the diffeerential gears so that both wheels get power all the time.

I'm doing most of the same stuff to my 1986 Toyota 4Runner. I'm going to use a selectable locker that comes on the newer trucks. So in normal driving it will be just like a normal differential. When I need the extra traction I hit a button and it makes the diferential "Lock" and act like his welded axle.

A Exo cage is a roll cage around the outside of the truck. For a light flop or roll it will prevent some body damage, like the roof caving in, as well as protect the passengers.

I'll take you Wheeling one day up in Blairsville or maybe if I have it ready by the fall deal there are some trails near cloudland that the Hummer clubs run. I know a buddy of the land owner...take you up there and scare you.
