  1. I haven't put anything from work on here in a while. I went put and got this load today off of one of our jobs. It's a load of oversize mixed hardwood. Hard and soft maple, ash, a few birch, and some basswood. Some of the bigger sticks measure 36 inches across. Usually anything that big has a rotten center but not this load, they were all good.

  5. Sounds like you are listening to those mechanics Anson. Keep that up and they will find the right stuff to keep you tuned up and running well. You better tell them to keep the mixture a little rich though or else we might lose some of that Blue Smoke. 😊. Stay healthy my friend.

  6. here are the 2 choppers I am using. The Fox opens the fields 3 rows at a time, and the Fargo wagon fits through the 3 rows. Then chop with the NH. The Richardton wagon holds more and dumps higher, but needs 4 rows to avoid running down corn. This was this morning's view in today's field. first trip thru after the Fox cut the road.

Even after watching solid lines of rain coming through, only to split and miss us, or just disappear, we got enough moisture just as it was getting despera

  7. Read a report that says that the first time buyers seem to be the problem. Gotta have ammo to feed a gun. Most popular calibers are gone because of that. So basically they are knocking out ammo as fast as they can. But they are reluctant to add more production lines. About the time they would be up and running demand will drop to normal levels. Just a case of demand on a short term basis far exceeding production. You may want to try http://ammoseek.com . They don't sell ammo but list sellers with ammo and reloading supplies on hand. When you click on one it take you to the vendors site.

So if all the chicken littles are running around scared sh!tless.................................what are they using the toilet paper forπŸ€” I'm with cobfly, have enough on hand at all times and you don't have to worry about times like these. If you think you need thousands of rounds on hand, maybe you better think more about improving your aim.

  16. Mathematically a 4" pulley will accomplish the same thing (2 x 3.1415 = 6.283 x 2 =12.566 radius). My concern would be horsepower. The increasing load will "cube" or times three the brake horsepower. Not sure a 1.5 HP motor with a 4" pulley will handle the load. So in theory you need a 3-5 HP motor to run the load with twice the pulley diameter. Dang! Now you are taxing my old brain. Haven't had to think about BHP and RPM for quite a few years!

  18. Anson and Gary, l've checked all my pics on file and don't have any info on that one either. ln the 30's and upwards, the government had lots of photographers going around and talking pics of "everyday ordinary" people to document struggles they went through. l have a lot of those pics that were farm related. And what l think is interesting is that a majority of them are IHC tractors and equipment. Not all....but a lot are. But l'll keep searching and see if l can find anything on it. While l was going through files, l did find one that DD might find interesting. A Massey-Harris Challeng

  19. Gary--- Daddy worked with IHC promoting the Regular until maybe 1931 or so. Establishing a date on the picture or the tractor itself would help narrow the possibility. I do not think that would be him here on the farm. I always understood that the vertical exhaust was added by IH (or offered as an option) in later years of production?? He always said that they sold so many Regulars that he began to believe that you could farm and make big money with them. He quit Harvester and came home to farm just in time for the 1932 crash. After 1932-----he said he was to broke to get ou

  22. When these drivers leave keys in a vehicle when refueling and car is stolen is bad enough. I think "GOOD for you dumba$$" But the morons that do so with CHILDREN IN THE CAR! Vehicle stolen and there goes my child. Do these people have any functioning brain cells? Stupid SOBs! Then they get on FB and want to SHARE their stupid ignorance! Well, doubt she will be sending me a friend request anytime soon. Sometimes the truth hurts.

  23. We usually keep a 1000 rds on hand for each caliber, except for hunting rifles, and shotguns, then it's a couple hundred. The 1000 round calibers are basically self defense, survival weapons, 22lr, 22mag, 9's, .380, 54 Cal muzzleloader. Muzzleloader you say! Well 50 lbs lead, 10 lbs powder and caps will go a long way for making meat.

  24. Did you catch his Covid "update" the other day? He's alone in his office with a mask on. You'd think someone on his team would help him put the mask on properly so he didn't look like an even bigger nimrod than he already does. The lady on the other screen doesn't even have a mask on. But I digress.... The problems in Kenosha fall squarely on his shoulders. Offered help from DC on multiple occasions and turned them away. Could have ended this problem the first night but let it go until it got out of control. He's currently using the same "do nothing" strategy in Madison. Anyone seen State

  27. They didn’t pre-drill the hole in the 2x6 and it split.... no way it would be rated for larger than 1-7/8” ball. To be serious, it does make me wonder how they connected it to the car underneath πŸ€”. Probably finish nails.

  28. It's early and I've just started coffee but my gut reaction is that you'll be fine with the lower RPM motor and larger sheave. The motor doesn't know what it's doing - just rated HP @ RPM. Just because you essentially gear it up to make the blade turn at the RPM it needs makes no difference. The saw probably uses the 3500 motor just because they're cheap. The 1740 motor makes more torque in order to have the HP at the lower RPM. The 1.5 @1740 motor is going to be bigger, heavier and should do the job just fine. I've got a 10" table saw with 2HP 1740 motor. My problem is that it's on a 15

  29. Ya BUT , now when you start to push a board through check the amperage under a full load . You might find it’s not big enough. Horse power ratings don’t mean what they used to .

  35. Worked with a guy at Lockheed-Martin about 40 years ago so bear with my memory. He was stationed at SAC (Omaha/Bellevue) when he was in the Air Force. Said they got a call from a pilot needing clearance who said he was coming in hot and if he didn't get clearance he was going to have to try New Mexico. They told him they saw nothing. They wanted to know who he was and where was he. He said he was an SR-71 and he had just crossed the eastern shore of the USA. He said he could already see the Great Lakes. So obviously he was way up there and that he was boogying right along. I'm guessing he got

  36. Small stainless steel brush. Didn't get crazy clean just a good mirror finish. Get all the oxidization off as it melts at a higher temp than the base material. No porosity or leaks on this one. Held 600 PSI of nitrogen for 24 hours and passed a 500 micron vacuum hold.

  42. Local Hunting/gun place in the very Lib bigger town of our county told my buddy getting a tag that they are selling every gun they get with in 24hr and have to order 2x the ammo as normal. Kinda scary if all these city folks are getting armed with no clue. Even I feel un knowledgeable about my weapon and need more practice. But at least I have gun sense.

  43. Hasn't been a box of 9mm, or anything else for that matter, on a shelf in this area since the "intellectual elites" started hoarding TP in February/March. I'm guilty of hoarding shells as well. I figured if people were freaking out over toilet paper it's going to get real scary when there is no food on the shelves.

  45. Me and my wife recently purchased our first house this summer. Well with that I can finally move my stuff out of my moms house! This includes my 1/16 scale tractor collection. My wife is a city girl so she gets a kick out of anything tractor related! The plan is in the works in the next year or 2 is to build a garage big enough to store the real tractors at home, the 656 and 244! Anyway spend last night carefully washing the years of dust off them. This morning placing them on the shelves. Scott
