  1. Was looking over photos of some stuff I have designed and built over the years with the help of my crew, This was a 6 way dozer blade 48" wide we custom built it for a 48" wide skid steer, It was going to work on some walking trail system in the southen states the design is very similar to a D-3 CAT dozer

  2. I was taking my youngest son (15) to his job last week and he was listening to music on his phone. I said "Styx,,, Blue Collar Man, album Pieces of Eight" . His jaw dropped and his eyes got really big! He said "how did you know that? Someone just forwarded that to me." I told him "that's late 70"s music, about the time I was in High School. I probably still have the 8 track somewhere." I said "Listen to Renegade and Queen of Spades." He thought they were "awesome tunes." Guess I wasn't too bad of a dad at some point. I've caught his 19 year old brother listening to Boston and Foreigner too. And the oldest also likes Boston. A while back they were testing me and I could name a lot of older songs in 10 seconds by the opening tunes. ?

  6. Local farmer called and said the hinges on his 30ft disk were shot. So we made some with 5/8"X3-1/2" flat bar and 1-1/4" pins. Friend who runs a fab shop in Lexington sent me a link to some hole cutters he is using so I ordered a set. This one is 1-5/6" I used on the hinges. It will cut through the 5/8" flat bar in less than a minute. They are made by Champion, got them from Amazon.

  8. Last year I bought a magnetic drill and it uses those annular Cutting bits. I don’t know how I ever drilled anything before them! I bought a set of six bits from 9/16” up to 1 1/16” The larger sizes have to be bought separately, I have 1 1/8”, 1 1/4”, 1 3/8” and 1 1/2”. The annular bits make lots of “steel wool“ when drilling. Yesterday I drilled a hole in my 1486 drawbar, I drilled a small hole through it first to use as a guide for when I flip the drawbar over to drill from the other side because my bits only drill 1” deep but the drawbar was 1 1/2”.

  9. Rule of thumb is 1 psi per hundred RPM is safe. (Or 10 PSI per 1000.) So at idle if you have at least 10psi you are ok, and at WOT if you have 25 it's ok. Now.... that said, I much prefer to see higher pressures than that. I like to see at least 40 at WOT, no less than 15 at idle. I don't like exploring. When you unbolt a bearing cap, you risk misaligned on reinstallation, and every time you unbolt and retorque a fastener it weakens it, or stretches it. Also, an open motor runs the risk of dirt contamination. Get oil pressure readings, and if you want more peace of mind pull an oil sample and send it to a lab. But don't go taking things apart just to look. There just isn't any reason to open up an engine until you know you need to.

  13. This is still on my heart/mind. I grieve when my brothers are hurting. I know the pain oh so well. Transparency, I have been crippled by depression, loss of hope, loss of direction. Here is something if you are willing to listen to will give you perspective. Jeff is a part of my healing and hope. He is a friend. He has lived Divorce, Loss of career, loss of finances, future etc......Jeff is real and practices what he preaches. He talks about his experience. If you are willing to take 35 minutes of your time, this will give you a plan to look forward - full disclosure it is written regarding elijah and his sorrow/grief and how God shows up and cares but asks hard questions. Its not some big sermon, it is 9 questions you can ask yourself regarding you personally, your life, your past and your journey. What does it look like? You cant unpack this and answer all 9 questions in one sitting, you will have to dig in and process this. Its not for the faint of heart, it requires deep thought and searching of your soul. If you would like me to expound on my answers - ask away, everyones will be different Teaser - Question 2 = What was I expecting? This very question is paralyzing to everyone at some point - WHY?

  19. So in one of the blacksmithing threads a couple weeks ago while everyone was talking about stuff @m.c.farmerboy mentioned having a large anvil. We had messaged back and forth about some other things before so I sent him a message asking about it. I enjoyed trying to figure out what everyone had in that thread and figured I’d get some more details and do the same for this one. Well, long story short, we came to an agreement and I own that anvil now. I had it shipped via Fastenal freight. Big thanks to MC Farmerboy for a new friendship and a nice transaction. I have always been impressed in any dealings I have had with Red Power members. Hay Budden anvil - 230lbs. Made in 1918 or 1919.

  20. We were at my wife's folks for coffee and lunch along with all her brothers and sisters and their kids a few Sunday nights ago. One of my sister in laws daughters turned on the tv to the Grammys. What a bunch trash! Both people and music. I will listen to Charlie Pride or Boston on an equal level as they are both music. That garbage that was on the Grammy's does not fall under the category as music. Jungle something or other maybe.

  21. I suck at that I barely knew the titles when they were in the top 40. ? The youngest now 28 enjoys torturing me because I fail every time. Now mom and him can go on for hours. Both my boys enjoy the old stuff too my oldest sons friends thought he had discovered a great new band when I introduced him to CCR back in 95 or so.

  27. Maybe they had them stored since the 80's and with todays market the bank can finally come out on them. ? Going to ask the son as he has been through there several times in the last few weeks. He hasn't mentioned it but he is accustomed to seeing old tractors setting around, just not shiny. ? Maybe he can some pictures when he passes through again.

  30. We got a new mattress tonight. I threw the old one out the front door to dispose of it in the morning. I went out to put the two older dogs in shop for the night and here Ruger is laying on the mattress completely comfortable. He wouldn't get up so I reckon that's where he will stay tonight. Must be more comfortable then the dog beds in the shop. It is a ruff life.

  33. Local dairy farmer dropped this off in January (they tried hauling wet hay) and have been working on it on and off and finally finished it. Original frame was 4"X2"X1/8" . I used 4"X2"x1/4" sandwiched between 4"X1/4" flat bar. Sectioned the coupling pole with 3" sch40 pipe.

  37. A while back I got a cup of coffee and set it on truck bed while I fueled up. Forgot about and drove about 1/2 mile the road . Kept wondering why people was waving and pointing backwards at me. When I stopped I found out why coffee was there still good but cooler.

  38. Fasten it to a milling machine and use a carbide rotary cutter to remove about .01” at a time and make a couple passes. It doesn’t take the temper out of the face and leaves it very nice and clean. Here is the face of another one a buddy helped me with. He is the machinist, not me. We leveled the base first and then smoothed the top.
