  2. Somebody asked about this earlier. No spontaneous combustion but still a 2-3second cook time and you could eat it.

  6. Well I decided to take the PTO shaft and gear box into a guy who has a local shop to see if he would press the gear off for me. After talking to him I decided I would I would drop off the bearings and oil seal I have order when they come in and he will bull the gear replace everything and press the gear back on. While I wanted to say I talked it myself, for as little as he is charging me, I have plenty of other projects to work on.

  8. Interesting video to watch! Liked flying the Spittie, was interesting to observe that it's a later Mk. with a Griffon engine turning a 5 bladed prop. The ones I've flown in the CAF had only the 3 blader. best, randy

  11. Work has been busy the last few weeks. That has kept me from having much time to tune on the forge. I fired it Thursday and with very little effort got up around 1950°. It ran for about 5 min and promptly froze up which had never happened previously. After a little research I haven’t been able to decide if my problem is a lack of LP volume in the size of my tank or LP flow through a gas grill sized regulator so I fixed both possibilities. Stay tuned for an update...

  12. Looks good and nice work on the rods, probably better than new. Now test it out, running it in mud up to the hood and if it runs for more than 30 min. like that it is a great keeper.

  14. I saw some pictures on Facebook from around Winnipeg. Crazy the snow you guys got. Hopefully it melts and dries up but this time of the year I know how hard it is to think positive like that. I will say I’ve seen the weather do a complete 180 though and end up with a real nice warm nov too. Not sure if I should even post this as I know you guys aren’t done or even close to it in Ralph’s case but we did manage to finish up tonight finally. Last 40 acres took a long time to get done. The oats were split up within the last 40 acres. Some of it was really good heavy oats and some of it is just hulls. I went through and combined all the good stuff I could find and then went back over it again and combined the ooor stuff. Not sure why the sand was so behind but it never matured. It just stayed green. Probably actually would’ve been better offering it to the cattle guy that wanted to bale the straw but decided not to when we explained the straw chopper situation. 30-40 bucks a bale we probably would’ve been ahead but oh well. It’s done now and in a pile on the ground at home. Didn’t have a empty bin to put it in. Sun was shining quite nicely today but it sure started to cool off around 3:00 clouding over now too The wheat went through real nice. It still wasn’t dry though loads were coming in 15.3-16. Had the Massey out there in the wheat for a while. Dad had cut 8-10 acres with the 4400 before it broke down so he came out and did that little bit The Massey only combined about 50 acres this year just enough to keep it cleaned up inside and everything loosened up I guess lol. Just after I took that ground speed picture I got sprayed by a skunk though dam near chased me right out of the cab can still smell it on the combine slight chance I actually put him right through the combine and the was a bit of a whoomp at the same time . Last 2 pics are the end of the last swath. Nice to finally be done and maybe do something else now

  16. DAMN, always hoping for a misdiagnosis, mild case, caught it early, fully treatable, try to find something good. Try to keep your attitude up, the mind is a great healer, looks like you have an awesome support crew! Will be hoping and praying for the best on this detour in your life.

  17. Not downplaying this in any way but it seems to me after reading the article that there might be more to the story? Tragic for sure but that is more like gang violence than being bullied. Calling someone names and getting smacked around in PE is far different than being stabbed. I know what it is to be bullied as I lived it every day in Jr High and High School. Growing up in a Christian home, I was taught to never fight and always turn the other cheek but always be willing to stand up for what you think is right. That doesn’t work if the popular kids think differently... Administrators don’t care and never have. I came home bruised and bloodied many times because I thought if I fought back I would get in trouble. You can only tell yourself that pain is weakness leaving the body for so long. Luckily, I grew up physically at about 17 years old and was bigger and stronger than a lot of those bullies. I decided to stop taking it and stood up for myself (not fighting) while still sticking to my Christian beliefs. Things went better from then on and to this day, nothing boils my blood faster than someone getting picked on that doesn’t deserve it. Never have started a fight but have gotten to finish a few. Sorry for the rambling, I didn’t intend to shift focus away from this tragedy to me. It is terrible what happened and hopefully something good will come out of the violence to change people for the better.

  18. With the www. Its It's nearly impossible to escape . At least 20 years ago most could go home. When I got home I played on the farm. Hunted the woods.

  20. Still tuning. Hit 2000° at around 7psi of propane. Blower isn’t quite all the way open. Air/fuel mix is very very touchy. I don’t have the needle valve even 1/2 turn open. The number below is a big milestone in this project for me.

  23. I might actually get to go home today! Now just gotta figure out how to come up with $13K a month for pills since the insurance company feels I’m not worth that much. ?
