  1. 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.
  2. It's Shepherd, not Shepard. I won't be going in anybody's yard unannounced, so don't shoot at me!
  3. I got nailed by a neighbor's lab. Only time I've ever been bitten by a dog. We were just standing in his driveway and she snuck behind me. He was animal control for about six towns at the time.
  4. I'll have to get a shot of my '68 1800. Just over 6,000, and I put almost a third of those on it.
  5. I think oil wants to coke around 400 F. I always try to cool an engine for a few minutes if they've been running hard. A pyro helps keep an eye on that. What kind of hp are you running to get 44 psi out of a 5.9? Mine was over 500 flywheel hp, and it only ran 34 psi.
  6. Is that a CAT sticker on the side if tge seat? Doesn't look anywhere near big enough for a 9.
  7. What's your soil like? We have a 5x16 trailer plow, and the 1256 will pull it in H2 like it's not there.
  8. Is MW Milwaukee? Because they offer about the fullest line of tools, with the best warranties, and the best batteries out there.
  9. I find it interesting that nobody comments on people with Ford/GM mirrors extended and no trailer.
  10. I left mine out. Do you seriously think I'm going to readjust them every time I hook or unhook the trailer? The only people that were really worried about it were the guys behind me that couldn't see past me, but that didn't matter, they weren't getting around me anyway.
  11. That's a slick contraption. This is how it's done around here:
  12. I think picking up 300 pound anvils is the reason I can't pick up 300 pound anvils anymore.
  13. When I was little we had a hired man that had jumped off a hay wagon. Left his ring, and finger, on a nail.
  14. Aspergers is pretty much an obsolete term these days. There are two main categories of ASD, high functioning and low functioning. However, autism affects people in so many ways you cant really classify each person with a label. While being high functioning doesn't have many of the challenges you have listed for low functioning autusm, saying Asperger's is very, very mild, is both erroneous, and very, very insulting.
