  2. Well.... Since the subject has changed from other stuff of some kind to long handled hammers, I'll post a few or ours. But I have no ball pein hammers with a four foot pipe handle, so sledge hammers are going to have to do. This 16 pound sledge was my blacksmith dad's. I saw him make a lot of swings with it as a youngster. I even remember a time or two when I was holding something long with one end on the anvil while he hit it. My hands stopped stinging by now. I'm not trying to brag, but I'm am trying to say my dad was one stout old blacksmith. He could grab the very end of the handle with his wrist twisted a half turn. He's pick it up and hold it straight out from his chin at 90 degrees, and he'd hold it there, straight out. I can hardly pick the hammer straight up, without trying to turn it out at 90 degrees. This shows the chips missing to show why it is a history piece and not much of a user anymore. Here are the main user sledge hammers at Mike's shop. Then there are these hammer things that could be used. And these can be used too. There's this one at the shed anvil. Now changing the subject for a moment. I got a text from Farmall Kid that he wants to seed oats tomorrow after I get out of Sunday school at 11:AM. He said he had everything greased and ready to go. This was last year's photo, but it is exactly like it's going to look tomorrow. An IH Tractor on a Montana Farm pulling a John Deere Van Brunt grain drill. The forecast isn't real good in Montana, but we may luck out and get the seeding done. MT Matt was smart to get his in when he did. I kind of have to work with Mike's schedule for these things. At least we don't have water leaching out of the ground like Anson does in his Delta Dirt. Gary?

  4. Wholllly mollly! I better see them high rollers in Skagit for some cash! Got some grass planted. Baled pasture grass for dry cow feed. Tractors are using more power to push peat than bale! The M7-171 is new and the Fendt has 10k hours. Says the fendt will prob out last the Kubota already. Its (kubo) kinda thirsty and can tell its 1st gen of big tractors. Butttt the 0% for 5 years hooked his be claims. Mowed up so they baled row. But should of layed 4' at least. Always forget...they are pretty wet. At least marshmallows are forgiving. Uncle had Brillion hooked up...sad 7120 esp considering it has 5000 hr on it. So me an Ace just used it quick. Planting 1st corn now. Kinda too dry frankly. Nervous for how dry summer may be...or how wet June will be. Got new starter for the ol car. Man...neighbor's lift is just sweet. 0 bad words. Did farm trucks same day on shop floor.....very be challenging for some reason.

  11. What it normally looks like from Daes perspective. Im the pack mule. I carry all the gear anytime we adventure out. Usually between 25-50lbs of shite. Today was lighter since we were fishing creeks not far off a dirt road. I keep food and crit gear on my back. And then all the test gear in another bag. Again. Cant show it i dont tink. Sometimes i stop to ficch or shoot or sleep. Never know wit me

  12. Troy, Ya know maybe next year you and your fearless leader should come south for the dinner. If your well behaved I might even let you be a guest at the same table with my old lady and myself. I always hear about them upper state north enders next to the border type once they get out of town for a couple of hours they get wild and crazy.

  13. Picture does not do justice to the view. The way the terrain works here I live on a hill the black dot I'm on the west slope and can see the red dot mountain ranges. You are looking at the beartooth and west. Toward madisions. The green dots you have to get up a little higher than my place as the hill blocks them. Helped a friend out of a jam this week he had committed to a project part was setting a log Arbor over the driveway. What fun when his skid steer isn't enough reach to get the top log in...

  14. This thing could pack the hay in . I had to be on my toes to try making tight bales but under 120 lbs . Once baling oats with full grain I started little early trying to finish a field and the bale wagon roadsided 110 bale load and a bale squeeze picked it up and put it on a Bob tail waiting , ran over scale and bales averaged 160lbs trucker, buyer , and my Dad were all ready to kill me if you look at one of pics there is a marker pointer in front run by a cable from bale shoot , my Dad calibrated that pointer and painted a line between 95 & 120 lbs and I was to keep an eye on that marker or they were going to give me hay hooks and make me load them by hand . Lol tony

  19. I always wondered how that works wrapping on the go? around here most are put in the long tubes or a few are wrapped individually didn't know that they cost that much either , we were thinking about a better round baler, notice I said better and not new? was probably going to go with a new Holland 740 ot 7060, lots sitting around, but now are state has experienced such a devastating winterkill I doubt there will be much of a need for baling this year, not to many guys in dairy around here needed that to happen on top of the current price situation, alfalfa and the other hay crops are depended on very heavily to feed our animals was always our one advantage we seemed to have over the years.
