  1. Saw this at the local welding shop today, the owner told me it's a 68 model? 549 gas burner, ouch that's gotta hurt right now. The pictures aren't that good off my phone, it's kinda dusty but looks pretty sharp. He uses it to haul a '32 Ford coupe around, had it in to weld a pistol on the end of the shifter. The owner is kind of a goof ball but he's got a lot of time and money in a neat old truck.

  2. So sad. My prayers for all of the families. Local funding and politics have pulled the school resource officer out of the school where my wife teaches. Why can we as the US fund all these other countries with billions of dollars but leave our children in harm’s way while they are in school? “right will become wrong and wrong will become right” The real issues are being ignored while kids are being killed and that’s ok? All this while our so called leadership is blabbing run on sentences and promising billions to help people that hate us? Wake up AMERICA!

  3. Bad deal, these situations always bring widespread cries for more legislation, and push back against it, all that is is quibbling over the addressing the symptoms, not focusing on the disease. there is some serious mental illness going un treated, and either it was missed, Or turned a blind eye to. Perhaps it was in the name of supporting “individuality” or because someone was too scared to speak up. in either case, parents need to start being parents again, teachers need to be given authority again and kids need to be held accountable.

  4. Sad to hear this but it is happening. I might step on some toes saying this but it is my mine opinion. As parents /grandparents /adults it is our duty to teach our kids right from wrong includeing about firearms the right only use of them and to have them earn what they want instead of letting them sit in front of games and TV. Until this is done all over things like this will happen as some see it on TV and think its right. Heck I even make my handicap daughter do some work and my three year old grandson. All the kids around my house will tell me or wife if they see a gun but won't and will not touch one. If they even see a empty shell case they come and get us. Even teachers should have the right to to make the kids listen. Sorry if I steped on anyones toes but this is my opinion.

  5. I was on a small road trip today. I stopped in the Hardee’s in Trenton, Missouri at 6:30pm today. It took over 15 minutes of me standing at the counter to have my order taken and about another 15 minutes to get the food. Then they came and told me they were out of one thing that I ordered. I felt so terrible for what few employees they had there. They are clearly understaffed and what employees that show up are obviously stressed about the situation. My hat is off to them for doing the best they can. I know it is happening all over the place, but what a nightmare. I honestly wonder how long this will go on? How long before the 24hr restaurant will be open 24hrs again? How I miss having the ability to just “run in and grab something”.

  11. From what little I know about it at this point, the shooter used social (?) media to warn that he was going to do this. The pattern is almost always the same - clues were abundant that he was dangerous. The house I worked on this afternoon had the idiot box on in the next room with "experts" talking about this event. I heard the word "firepower" at least 30 times. It's so obvious that they have a script to fulfill an agenda - blame the guns, call for more gun control, ignore what drove him to do it and the fact that there were opportunities to stop him.

Well wes I don't know the toes of which you speak, what you wrote is common practice in my world, I don't know your age but my world started in '48, my old man showed me proper use of guns, I showed my kids the same, and a work ethic has always been at a forefront, your statements are bangon, the only toes stepped on are the ones who don't want to believe they have the responsibility of this topic.

  17. I havent read much about the shiitrat that did this, but 18 years old I swear it is media driven, and not being a yank I don't know your security system in schools and stores but general protection is concealed carry, if some piece of shiit is seen approaching a school with visible firepower how can it go on from there, I don't know about today but at the new york store the 18 year old was on radar, had done a cursury sweep the week before and was seen going to the store, is CC allowed in NY? I know CC and open carry is allowed in Texas, do teachers not have access to their firearms? Prayers arent needed for this crap, answers to mindsets created to this are needed, antis blaming guns isnt an answer, 15 people, 14 fuckiin kids are now dead, 14! People are accosted up here by walkby assailants, we need defending and we need to protect OURSELVES and our families no matter where we go and are, this isnt in just NA, this crap is worldwide and the politicians are doing sweet fuckalll to help put an end to it, lip service will not end this we need answers, where? I dont know, Im not that smart, but there has to be a cure. RIP to all involved.

  21. Looks like an old flintlock "blanket gun". Often used by fur traders, miners, and Indians as a "hideout" gun. The pump is an old Bannerman/Spencer model 1890. I think. If so it's a very rare gun. Mac

  28. Todd, the upper engine is a Port Huron engine. I'm a little hesitant to say it is a 32 hp engine, as I think it appears smaller, but it has the wide rear wheels of a 32 hp. The front tank is pretty synonymous with the big 32 hp also. It utilizes a "trunnion" plowing hitch to pull those belly dump wagons. They made it possible to put the drawbar pin just about anywhere you wanted to! The bottom engine threshing is an Advance, and a fairly early one too. Again, I'm reluctant to say. Maybe Roger KNOWS? I think this early type was what was referred to as a "Case-Willard" Advance type? (I don't believe that had anything to do with JI Case?) The early part also refers to the threshing machine. It was a "hand feed" with the man standing on a platform with a type of knife that looked similar to a hatchet to cut the binder twines and push the bundle (sheaf for Ralph and Urs) into the cylinder area. However it is new enough that it has a "blower stacker." They are neat old photos Todd. Thank you for sending them along. Gary😉

  29. iowaboy1965, You have sure stumped me with this Caterpillar. I went through hundreds of Caterpillar photos and the only one I could find that would have had a cylindrical fuel tank on the left fender AND a hood with side curtains, was a Caterpillar Thirty. I'm no judge of size since it doesn't matter anyway. Most of the Sixty Caterpillars had their fuel tank on the right side. A few of them had left hand tanks, as did one Best Sixty, but they didn't have hoods or side curtains. I'm sorry I'm no help. Hopefully another crawler specialist will ID it? However, I bumped into some other things in my computer files. My good friend Don Greytak of Havre, Montana had some of his pencil drawing art with Caterpillars. Notice he's caught the Cat track on the hitch and bent it. Don often tries to put some "kinks" into his drawings. Notice the big rock and the farmer gazing the wrong way. This one is just that the John Deere got stuck and the Case was digging in too, so they had to bring the D-4 The little boy wants to grow up and work with clanking tracks too. And to keep this as crawlers AND an IH Tractor(s) on a Montana Farm is this one with the 4100 IH and the TD-14. Gary 😁 And I bumped into these Caterpillars. The first twin is at the King Ranch in Texas. This twin D-8 may also be a King Ranch??

  30. Once rats find a place they like, they are very hard to get rid of. When you finally do and to keep them from showing up again. Have a firm talk with Fergie and J-lo about who they hang out with when they go to town on Saturday Night! 😉 😄

  31. These lost soul shooters are but a symptom of a much larger and more deadly disease ravaging this country. If we want to bring our beloved America back to health, We need to eliminate the pathogens causing this disease. My prayers for peace, comfort and understanding to the innocent families whose lives were torn apart by this senseless act

  37. After getting the beans in yesterday was talking to the uncle, he came up to help. Asked him about the sales this weekend. Totally spaced off the plow-day at Pine Island. Anyway, he thought we should go to a sale at Osceola. Ok. There was a nicely painted 1066 but not too much other farm stuff. Lots of tools and shop-equipment was the draw for me. Glad we went as I bought a drill press, have been needing/wanting one for a long time. This sob is heavy! About all three of us could do to get it in the truck. There were some split weights, 8 pieces. When they sold, I asked specifically, one money? They said yes. I went to $110 and thought I was out. The auctioneer looked at me and asked for my number, I got them. Little while later, one of their guys counted the weights. Guy that bought the bale spear off the pallet and I talked about this. When I went to pay, they rang up as 'times the money'. I told the clerk I bought them 'one money', she just changed it, bill went down $770! Also got a suitcase weight angle iron/locks and a 66 series step. Step came with the weights. The 10 brought $19,500, had 62xx hours. Here's some pics of the day.

  45. Hello All, I've been lurking here for years and absorbing the info I learn here. Now, just for fun I thought I'd share my progress on my 1206. First I'll give some back story. Around the age of 7 or 8 (1981-82) I was riding along with my dad in the cab of his 1026 plowing some hilly land we rented. The farm across the fence line was run by my god-father. He was out working his field with his 1206. Open station, duals, and that straight pipe stack puffing away as he climbed his hills. I knew at that young age I wanted one. Fast forward 10ish years. As a senior in High school, I needed a project for shop class. My god-fathers 1206 had been sitting in a field for about 3 years with the MCV and misc parts in 5 gal pails. It seems it had broke down and after inspection, it was found the gear for the hydraulics on the main shaft was shot. He wasn't interested in splitting the tractor in the field and had no shop to work in so it sat. I told him I'd take it to school and do the work if he could get me the parts as I needed them. Done! The 12 was put back to work until he sold it off at his farm auction. I was crushed when I heard it got sold. I didn't even know he was having an auction. I know who bought the tractor and still owns it now. He is a neighbor of mine that I get along with very well. So, I am on the long list of people waiting for him to sell it. I couldn't wait any more so I started watching c-list and auctions for my own 12. Turns out one popped up half way across the country that I was the first to call on. It had been sitting in a fence row for 20+ years but it ran and drove. I hooked the trailer and rolled out 5am the morning of Good Friday 2017. The wife and I arrived at the spot early Saturday morning. We met with the daughter of the previous owner who had passed away. She didn't know exactly what she had but the neighbors had told her it was very a desirable tractor. She was great and we loaded up, headed for home, and I unloaded it Easter morning. Here's the pictures that were in the ad when it was listed. Yup. I drove half way across the country to spend my money after seeing these. I had been bit bad all those years ago. I'll add more later on and share my progress. I hope you all enjoy. Thanks, Dennis
