  1. We are cast here. We've been using it for decades when we do reenactments. When we got our new stove and switched to gas in 2017, the house went cast too. No matter the cookware or heat source, the secret to any cooking is "low and slow". Can't rush perfection. I use bacon grease and the Mrs likes olive oil. We both use only hot water to wash and wipe down with bacon grease after with the pan still warm. The new stove going in during the remodel.

  5. So I'm able to take all the phone calls, emails, text messages and answer the questions when someone needs help, BUT I can't make a "few bucks" at it to make a living. Oh and they don't show a 5x88 harness. Thanks Mike ;)

  13. That engine was a sort-of experimental version (the V12). The six was called the “400” I think. Those engines were overhead cam and sort of a Hemi-head. That V12 truck would have been faster than most cars back then! It’s interesting they say “butane” in the article and “LPG”. LPG is usually mostly propane and some butane. The vapor pressure of butane is much less than propane (plastic bic lighter vs a propane tank). I wonder if they actually used “butane” back in the day? It would have been easier to handle.

  16. Jinxed myself. Thanksgiving day I did my annual slacking and removing links from the apron chain on the manure spreader and readjusting.... broke a link on a slat the next day🙄 Guess the links on the slats wear significantly more than regular links which makes sense. Spreader is only 6 years old. At least it wasn't -20 out Don't mind the ratchet strap the hook is ripped off the ratchet end so this will be a good use for it and keep the come-along I normally use from getting messy

  17. I think your CO pic is interesting. At the Half Century of Progress Show last August there was one very similar. The owner offered my 6 year old son a ride to which he gladly accepted.

  19. Saltese is 23 miles west of me almost to Lookout Pass. If I’m seeing it right, the view is to the west. Current day I-90 runs basically where the lower track is in the picture. The high trestle is still there today, I’ve rode over it many times on snowmobile. My brother-in-law grew up there, his parents owned the Montana bar in the 80s. It had the original bar and mirror in it from the late 1880s if my story is straight. Then the place burned down and all was lost. The bar/restaurant was rebuilt but not like original. Good place for a burger. The town stays alive from UTV riders in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter.

  21. My dad went to the country school 1 mile east of my place. He would have graduated from 8th grade in 1954 or 1955. He said the country schools gave the best education. The 1st graders learned what the 8th graders were being taught and the 8th graders got a review when the 1st graders were being taught. The students also were part of the school's work. Brought in the firewood. Filled the water cooler. Helped the teacher clean up. Most importantly were taught the three R's. Dad's school house got moved to town and is now a house.

  23. I've been running Milwaukee M18 cordless for about 10 years now and have no regrets. Had Bosch 14.4 ni-cad before that. Upgraded gradually, and having two different battery platforms in the van was a minor but constant pain in the butt for me. There are cheaper tools, but I've only regretted spending the extra for Milwaukee at the time of purchase. The regret that comes with buying a cheap version of a tool that you use regularly lasts a long time. The Milwaukee batteries are amazing. I think that's where a lot of cheaper brands save a few bucks, and it shows in tools that are used daily.

  27. I had a roof put on my house and the one guy had Ryobi tools, and another was giving him heck. His answer was I us to have a crew when putting up steel buildings and he supplied tools. They would have a contest to see how high a drill/driver would bounce on the concrete. So the heck with having the costly name brands. And years later he still has Ryobi tools that work. So not saying there are not better, but they will do a lot of work.

  28. Cast iron here too, fry bacon every morning and eggs in the bacon grease. Scrape it with a plastic flipper and wipe out with a lint free paper towel no washing.

  29. I hate to be that guy but I feel like you pay for what you get. If you are going to use them regularly you'll end up better off in the long run sticking with Milwaukee or Dewalt. Seems like Milwaukee is favored 2 to 1 vs Dewalt here locally with the pros.

  30. Use cast iron. Season it well and use a thin coating of grease. Easiest way to season a cast iron skillet is to apply an ample layer of lard. Then put corn bread batter in the skillet. Place skillet in preheated oven and cook cornbread. When cornbread is done remove from oven and eat cornbread. Do not wash pan. Simply wipe pan out. Next day repeat above and it is seasoned. You may make some smoke the first time.

  31. I put the WiFi in the shop for computer access (Utube and checking on repairs) and so I can set up a camera that alerts my phone if someone goes in the shop. I have also connected my boiler so I know if it trips the reset or has an issue. Since it’s there a TV may be in the future. Snow here in the interior has been very light, we only have about a foot on the ground. It has also been above zero so far. Very warm and mild winter for me so far. Anchorage has been pummeled, back to back storms and more came in November. I think by the 10 of November they had already tied already match the record for the month. I have heard there is good snow in the mountains
