  1. Bought my 5 year old his first tractor. I came across this super c with rebuilt belly mower for 1425 and I bought it for 1200. Will sell the mower so ya can't beat that price. Runs great, new lights , fires up fast. Will pull it in the 3500lb farmstock class and when he is old enough he will pull it.

  5. A couple of nice trucks from Illinois had these loaded heading East. I presume they came from Swenson in minot ND and are headed east and south. Bergeron farm on the trucks. And notice the monument built years ago for the center of North America

  6. Yes, I was just going on the way it looked in the pic on the decal for that. Looks like a short word followed by a longer word and “two ten” didn’t fit what I thought I could see. It does look larger than a 190 to me but who knows. Uncle has. 190XT and Grandpa had a 200. Pulling grain wagons, grinding feed, mowing pastures, etc... They were the utility machines of the farm before Uncle retired. Uncle was a high school classmate and friend of the local AC dealer.

  11. No progress on the barn yet , ryelage and first cutting done, waiting for rain to be less often to mud corn in the ground the way it looks like unless major weather pattern changes occur. The kids helped me drag this wood lathe in the basement. It's the one my father in-law had . I made a stand for it to support it. Now I need to rewire the motor and switch. My older son wants to make stuff on it. Ash is what I used . Before I got married I made my wife a rolling pin on this because she had won a rolling pin throwing contest

  13. Great Plains Craftsman is another good YouTube channel. He builds a small, 16x20, barn that he closely copied from one I built in 2016. Tradesmen Channel does some things that go against accurate methods, so be cautious. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I have experience with square rule, scribe rule, and using organic forms in timber framing.

  14. I am still far away from starting the barn build but I have been gathering things when I have extra time. I got a DMI wagon gear for making a flatbed for wood moving around the sawmill. I am hoping to get the second building foundation set up to be able to pour both in the same day. I am putting a 24x60 shed up for my tractor stuff that I am getting free from a neighbor. I figure to get that up for storing the beams as I cut them and cut the mortice and tennons in there out of the weather. I sawed two ash logs tonight in the rain to make the beams for the wagon. Now I will get hardware and then saw the floor boards for it . This is going to be dragged out as I am busy or worse all the time ?. I just thought I should start putting some of this down so I don't forget to document it. I have been watching some videos on YouTube mainly "the tradesman channel" to get a grasp of the necessary knowledge and tools . Last two pictures of a dead tree I cut down, maybe butternut or walnut?

  16. Ok here is a sheet I made up on most of the bearing in the rear end of a FarmAll m . Use it for reference only I assume no liability. All the part numbers were pulled from a reference catalog from SKF. The first row or column shows the IH part number the second column is the bearing size the third fourth and fifth show different part numbers for SKFMRC in the actual cross reference part number. Hope this is helpful.

  17. A woman decides to have a facelift for her birthday. She spends $5000 and feels pretty good about the results. On her way home, she stops at a newsstand to buy a newspaper. Before leaving she says to the clerk, “I hope you don’t mind my asking, but how old do you think I am?” “About 32,” is the reply. “I’m exactly 47,” the woman says happily. A little while later she goes into McDonald’s and asks the counter girl the very same question. She replies, “I guess about 29.” ” Nope, I’m 47.” Now, she’s feeling really good about herself. She stops in a drug store on her way down the street. She goes up to the counter to get some mints and asks the clerk this burning question. The clerk responds, “Oh, I’d say 30.” Again she proudly responds, “I am 47, but, thank you.” While waiting for the bus to go home, she asks a senior gentleman the same question. He replies, “Lady, I’m 78 and my eye sight is going. Although, when I was young, there was a sure way to tell how old a woman was. It sounds very forward, but it requires you to let me put my hands on your breasts. Then I can tell you exactly how old you are.” They wait in silence on the empty street until curiosity gets the best of her. She finally blurts out, “What the heck, go ahead.” He begins to feel around very slowly and carefully. After a couple of minutes of this, she says, “Okay, okay, how old am I?” He completes one last squeeze, removes his hands, and says, “Madam, you are 47.” Stunned and amazed, the woman says, “That was incredible, how could you tell?” The old man replies, “Promise you won’t get mad?” “Promise,” she says. He replies, “I was behind you in line at McDonald’s.” bada bing bada boom!!! __________________ Betcha didn't see that coming.

  20. I was changing out a fuel sending unit on the project tractor. Laying on my stomach ,legs hanging out of the cab door with my arms snaked down through an opening in the floorboard. Then it happened. lost my footing , hit the aluminum platform with the 50 piece 1/4" socket set laying open on top. Well sh!t hung in the doorway one hand caught but I got out and saw the mess. Surprisingly I found all but 2 on the first go around those 2 were a little harder. Don't know how they wedged themselves under a tri rib on another tractor but that's where I found them. Got 'em found before it got dark too ?

  23. In the early 90s I acquired this 1930 Model A for $500. It was too far gone to be anything but 2what I could dream up. My friends all had show cars and I kept telling them that this Model A was going to be a show car as they laughed. I told them that Bondo and paint would make it a show car so I started on the car. I went to the Early Ford Store in San Dimas, Calif and found some rusty items that he could not sell that would work on the car, added a Beer keg, Milk can with battery in it and old Lincoln wire hubcaps. Bill the owner of Early Ford Store told me that guys came after seeing my rusty bucket A at car shows and cleaned him out of old rusty parts (This was the start of Rat Rods in S Calif). Bill bought more truck loads of old A parts and was selling the parts all over the world. I took it to a car show in Prescott, AZ (2nd pic) with my friends cars there. It was ugly but it ran, and my friends got me the Trophy for Best Paint & Upholstery. I then made a ragtop for the car using a military Jeep top and glued rags, outside & inside, added other old trinkets. I took it to "Run to the Sun" in Lake Havasu City and won Best of Show (Pic 4) which they had to kick me off the stage so the announcer could talk (The crowd was hollering & clapping). I then went home and found Barn wood which then it became a Motorhome. I built a trailer out of Barn wood and decorated it with funny & clever items. It had the outhouse in the front and the back wall folded down for the bedroom. I won many shows with this and had show directors wanting to pay me to bring it to their show as far away as Tennessee. I had shows every weekend to go to and it was "out of hand" with all the requests. (Pic 5 & 6). I finally took it to Mecum Auctions and drove it thru the auction selling for $20,000. It was shipped to Florida. (Pic 7)

  27. Yep, You could have 1000 square feet of open floor space all around you, drop something and it goes under a tire, under the shop vac etc. If you have 1000 square feet of open floor space that translates in your shop to 1000 places your dropped item will be under and become invisible. Never, plainly visible in the 1000 square feet of open floor space. DISCLAIMER - I know no one has clean floor space in their shop. The above statement was for demonstrative purposes only. But the statement is still 100% accurate in every shop I've ever worked in. God help you if your working outside!!

  30. In my shop, when it was brand new (and clean!), I was working on a pickup. Slid my Craftsman 1/2" ratchet out from under the truck, then crawled out myself. Couldn't find the ratchet. Pulled truck out, still couldn't find it. Looked everywhere in shop, on concrete apron outside, in gravel drive...never did find that ratchet! Its like it disappeared into thin air!

  31. I hope so as I have gotten them every week and I tell them I don't have a car because I like walking...... Now I can give them the serial number of the Buick and let them put me in the warranty program. I'll have to tell them that I will need the warranty emailed to me weekly to keep me up to date on the recalls!

  35. I think this will catch me up on what I have done since last posting on here . PTO handles to convert any of ours to 66 series cab style. Lower A arms are done on the gocart. 21.5-16.1 junk tire I cut with a 3tpi sawzall for a tree swing and gave it to the neighbor . You use pallet forks and get it inside out and drill drain holes. Squeeze pump we had to cut apart to put bushings in and my cousin made me new stainless rollers and shaft .

  38. In 1982 right after I graduated from VA TECH, I drove with my brother up to Alaska. I was 21, he was 31. We were camping every night and both looked pretty scroungy, I guess, when we got to the Kanuck border somewhere in podunk Montana. He was already going gray and had a salt and pepper stubble going on as well as, a raging cold. Border guys must have been bored as they made us get out and go inside. One of them said to us "so, you're father and son"? That did not make my brother happy, so he was not exactly very communicative after that. I guess they figured we were some kind of risk and they started emptying the truck.....including the 2 boxes of used kleenex under the seat. They wanted to know how much money we had, how long we were going to be in country, where we were going, etc, etc. Kept us there almost 2 hours. Rest of the trip was fine......but I never saw my brother ever go without shaving a day again ?
