  1. I carried a Zippo folder from about ten until my first jury duty. I wasn't more than five feet from that knife for over nine years.
  2. Ensilage fork is better, way more tines on it.
  3. My great-grandfather ran buses in the fifties and sixties. He carried grain shovels so the big kids could shovel the snow drifts.
  4. Land Rovers are aluminium, and have been for a long time.
  5. .25 Marauder with an X Sight 4K Pro.
  6. I've got the first M18 Fuel blower. It's better than any hand held gas blower I've used. I blow bark and sawdust out from under the sawmill with it. I even used it to blow an opossum out from under the welder in my garage last night.
  7. It will put 10 CCI MiniMag HPs through less than 1/2" at 50 yards.
  8. I bought my 77/22R new in about '91. I think it was $300 then. If I was loaded, I'd buy every 77/22 variant I could find.
  9. I think I may have identified your problem. That's not a beet. It is some sort of alien incubation pod. Aliens are well known to taste like earth and smell like two year old leaf litter.
  10. I bought an M18, also. I already had a ton of batteries. I don't use it often, but there is no other tool that can do what it can do. It uses some juice. I think a Fuel model would be nice if I were running it a lot, but I don't think they exist, yet.
  11. What I want to know is how much do people charge when they are looking at the customer's tractor shed after the work is done.
  12. In 2008 in I had to have CAT warranty the exhaust manifold on my sawmill. I don't remember the hourly rate, but $135 sounds right. $2.45/mile. It was six hours port to port, plus about $300 in parts, the bill would have been over $1,600. The independent guys are so busy, if you aren't one of the preferred customers, you'll never see them.
  13. We have to rent a crane for a barn raising next month. $240 per hour, four hour minimum, billed port to port. If you are moving, someone needs to be paying.
