  1. Brad lived in California and was a lifelong environmentalist. He was sick of the world; of Covid-19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, China, global warming, ethnic tensions, and the rest of the disturbing stories that occupy media headlines. Brad drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favorite radio station, started the car and revved it to a slow idle. Two days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and saw him in the car. She notified the emergenc

  3. I can't remember the last time I needed you. Six months, a year? Gave you some love or a fresh tank of gas. Even longer? You are sitting behind an old pickup and another tractor. I see you have no hyd fluid left (not really your fault, it's the leaky old campaigner DuAl loader that is the culprit there). You let some of the air out of one of your back tires. And somebody robbed your battery for a more important project I'm sure. Every time I bring something new home I tell the missus "maybe better let the old girl go on Big Iron to help with the new purchase". She always says she sh

  5. There are more Catholic churches in Las Vegas than Casinos! Not surprisingly, a not insignificant portion of each Sunday's collection comes in the form of casino chips from the various gambling establishments around town. In order to facilitate their collection and redemption for cash the various churches have enlisted the services of a Franciscan Monastery which each Sunday sends members of the order around collecting the chips from the various churches. During the week they sort the chips, cash them in at the various casinos and then redistribute the appropriate money to the various churc

  7. 26' hydraulic dovetail gooseneck trailer. This is my middle sons ffa ag mechanics project for this year. I dont know how much he will get to show it. 9k axles, 17.5" tires, pierced frame. He built hydraulic jacks for it. Still waiting on the pin striper. 1206 inspired paint job. Thanks for looking.

  8. These hoods started in poor shape, having sat on a stuck tractor outside for 8 plus years near a bunch of pine trees in northern Minnesota. I am not a paint or body guy, and spent quite a few hours buffing by hand to get the big pieces, and then followed up with a buffing wheel to finish them up. I don't know that I can push them much further, as I don't want to burn through the paint. They will end up back on the '69 1456 they were pulled from. After all this, I was curious what you folks use as far as products or methods to bring old paint back. I'd like to think there is an easier

  9. One of my customers dropped this off last week and said he had a new operator and first day the guy busted this bucket. He was pretty up set, said his machinic had just welded in a new base edge shanks and teeth into it After looking over the seen of the crime I looked at Jeff and said I hope you didn't get after the operator to much , It was not he's fault. I then explained what happened was hydrogen cracking, the cause no or not enough pre heating . any one that has worked with steel has noticed when you heat steel water will come to the surface, the thicker the stee

  10. I have told some of you my " don't be a dick" story, but long and short of it I learned all I need to know about life from a flunky who worked at McDonalds, who made one request of me, "please, just don't be a dick" there has been much grousing about rules and regs on this forum, I TRY not to get into political discussions, though I certainly have, because it really doesn't matter what I think, or what someone else thinks and each of us feels the other is right, fact remains that it is a forum that belongs to Dennis and Sally, they are very gracious to allow us all to get together here a

  14. You know the more I think about this, the more is ****** me off. We have had warnings for months. Poofs and deletes. Bj asked nicely. But that wasn't enough. Had to push push push. Then Dennis had to intervene as if he has nothing else to do. He offers this forum for all to use for free with simple rules. I know as well as you how difficult these past months have been. Deal with it. Put your big boy pants on. Just don't do it here. Definition of politics...christ. Petty bs. And I dont mean Tom or Richard.

  15. My flags usually endure 6 months of weather before becoming tattered/torn/faded. I keep fresh new ones on hand to replace with. I noticed today mine is looking poorly again. I chose to leave it alone. It reflects my mood as it is. Maybe replace it another day. God bless our flags.

  17. Let`s all just take a breath here. We got a good thing going here with a LOT of great people. Maybe things don`t suit some but suit most. No different than any group of people including a church/Lions club/beer joint/cat house or club of any sort. Things are very touchy in the country right now and we have to pause/relax and think ahead. It might be weeks/months/years but we will get through all this $hit. We can`t quit. Don`t you leave us stranded big boy! Go take a hot shower and feed the cows. Besides, you`ll miss ME!

  18. I found this on youtube. Any time someone thinks this great country owes them something they should listen to this. I'm a history buff and did not know all of this. Some of it I did, but Paul Harvey goes into much more detail as only Paul Harvey could. This should have been one of his classic "Rest of the Story". Moderator, this is a history lesson not a political statement.

  23. I was having a real crummy day. Everything was taking twice as long as it should have. Near dark when I decided to put the SM at the stackyard and she just came through in spades and turned my day around. Driving it over there just brought back a flood of memories of all the years she was my high private loader tractor. This is one of my favorite pics. my youngest (he is 26 now, perty young in the photo😄) helping me move equipment between hay meadows in the fall when we were hauling hay home with pickup and flatbed.

  25. I have been behind BJ for a long time. I do think his timing was wrong since the next week could become an exciting or dark time for our country. I do agree this gets a bit out of hand at times but so does life. This is exactly the same as kids on the school bus arguing John Deere vs. International Harvester. Post on this forum as if you are nose to nose with the people you are talking with. Think before saying and think before posting. But, after all was said, this is pure censorship and violates the 1st Amendment. May our country heal and get back to normal

  26. 1/15/21 Baler therapy Friday this week ! had a little set back today , we set auger drive then installed Auger itself . all went well till trying to complete auger coupler . After hours of following the problem , I believe ,being whole side of baler was remade With new sheet metal and paint thickness our auger coupler is 3/16 off . Hopefully we can drill new hole on opposite side of existing hole . Did not realize that coupler is responsible to driving auger but also aligning auger and drive . I am fighting paint thickness on most parts , the feeder fork is no exception , hav

  27. Went on a road trip today with a friend to pick up a snow blower that he bought on big Iron and the guy has this tractor sitting in the yard with the snow blower already hanging from the loader ready to go. Its a 1966 model that he said his Dad bought new, has 5,000 hours, he said the only thing ever done to it was a new clutch. I have never seen an original 806 that's this clean, not a drop of oil anywhere or even a damp spot, pictures don't do it justice but my phone camera isn't very good. Its even got an IH fast hitch hydraulic blade on it, never seen one of those before.

  29. The problem with legalization is they’re ignorant of the problems that arise from drug use, because they’re greedy about the potential windfalls of the taxes generated by legalized sales. If this was truly about legalizing the sale of pot then the tax would be the same as other things subject to taxation. Corruption at its best.

  31. You keep the old SM around because she doesn’t owe you dime. Guessing she was instrumental in keeping you floating during some hard times. You keep her around because you “owe” it to her. She’s family!

  32. That tractor was not overpriced at all. You will drive the wheels off tying to find an original wet bolster 966 with the (1456) front axle like that. Even without the wet bolster it should have brought that. A nice open station 66 is worth a lot. Sold a 766 south of me a ways for 16,000 a month ago and last spring a 1066 for 18,500. They are a lot better tractor than a new one for a lot less money. It isn't just collectors buying them either. I talked to the gentleman that bought the 1066, he said the 806 was being moved from tillage to planter duty and the 1066 was replacing it. Not all farms

  37. Might be that they never stop begging for money? When I joined, every other day there was something in the mail asking for money, after 6 months I canceled my membership and it still took 3 years for them to stop all the mailers. I believe in them but can’t stand the constant harassment and waste.

  39. Gary posted some great old truck photos above. The one of a Autowagon backed up to the Post Office is a 1911 Model A with a FACTORY special USPS body that they started selling that year. Because Autowagons were such a dependable/versatile truck, many were used by the USPS and IHC started to offer a body design that met their needs. That truck with the small Baldwin locomotive is a Saurer truck built about 1912. I was lucky enough to help with the restoration of the only American built Saurer truck in existence. Lloyd Van Horn purchased the truck at an auction up in Alaska where it ha

It's most likely political as New York has grown very liberal and anti gun. I have no illusions that the nra leadership are angels through. I'm ok with it for now. Thx-Ace
