  1. I really tried to get into ice fishing, had all the gear. Still have some pretty good rods and reels but sold the shack and auger. Guess my personality type doesn't jibe with the sitting thing. By the time deer hunting is over on the tenth of January it's time to relax before spring field-work season.

    New shed

    I didn't get a pic but they got the doors shut Thursday. Was at the farm today moving snow, was nice to see. Really wish Mom could have seen this thing in the finished state.
  3. Wow, that is a rough one!

    Mom

    It's with a heavy heart that post this. Got word from the hospital that she passed just before 8:00 P.M. Knew it was inevitable just from watching her today. Doesn't make it any easier. Not sure what else to say. Just really appreciate all all the well wishes. You guys are the greatest!
  5. I experienced -33 three separate times the winter I was in Minnesota, cold enough for me! Actually complained about that to a buddy that lived in Baudette, he said it was -50 there! No doubt in my mind that it was.
  6. Good grief! Didn't think it got that cold in NY! Thought Lake Ontario would insulate you better.
  7. Simple answer is it's not getting enough fuel. Have you checked the sediment bowl? Does it have an inline filter that could be plugged?

    Mom

    It really means a lot to me. The support from the great people on this forum is unbelievable. It would be nice to meat all of you in person some day. Going to have to move the round-up higher on my list. Ace, sad to say but making her comfortable is the point we're at.

    I could use some thoughts today guys. Mom's in the hospital, prognosis is not good. Waiting for a bed to open up in the ICU.

    There will be electricity at some point. Just a few lights and enough plugins to run a battery charger.

    Should be high enough for anything I'll ever park in there!
  12. Have a spare tranny for the 1460, hope I never have to change it!!! It was not any fun getting it out of the donor that was sitting on blocks in a pasture but was paid for and I wasn't leaving it there!

    I really would like to have put the goose-neck trailer in yesterday but wasn't sure if it would clear the door stops in the middle. Was running short on time so just let it set. Guess I grabbed the low-hanging fruit yesterday.

    The doors are on, not sure what's going on? Builders were not there while I was. At any rate, time to start filling this thing up! Go to get the prime-mover (WD-45 narrow front with p/s) out, battery dead. Charge battery, pick up nails in mean time. Get it going, hook onto corn planter, flat tire! Can't seem to win. Blow up tire, at least it took air. Finally got it in the shed. Grain head was next, would have been nice to have some help but such is life. Then the 7' Allis disc and sickle mower, then drove the ten in. Bet there could be some jealousy of all this high-dollar equipment! Feels good to have some stuff back indoors, well kind of.
  15. Manpower is the key. Field size probably second. Good weather and ground conditions here this year, was able to harvest the whole crop by myself. Much to the chagrin of my uncle who helps. Some people who like to give me advice have told me for years that I NEED a cart. Well, one of those guys is the former partner. WE really needed one! Three harvest seasons after the 'divorce', HE still doesn't have one!? On a small operation like mine, I don't need one. Now, if someone were to give me one and store it........ Don't take this wrong a cart would be helpful at times, especially when it's wet.

    50C refurb

    Progress is slow but is happening. I started to do a little painting and noticed a couple more things that needed brazed. Did that, warped the spindle surface again but didn't take too much to get back to straight. So I used up all the white paint I had, kind of wish I would have prepped it better last fall..... If I ever find a 'good' 50C skin this one is going to become a parts deck. When the paint is dry I'll start the reassembly in earnest.
  17. Welcome back! We've all missed you.
  18. Yep, that's even rougher than my P.O.S.!

    Things are coming along nicely, they may be done today. West doors were done when I got there and they were working on the East ones. Was pretty breezy but decreasing, foreman thought they would be able to hang them this afternoon. They are all steel, I like that. Had to take a quick run over to the 'yard' to visit Aaron and crew. That belt that jumped off yesterday I got back on the drive pulley but couldn't figure out the tension-er. Looked at one machine, a true 'Duh' moment! Pulley goes on top not bottom. Got the machine going, belt stayed on and moved it over in the N.E. corner. Hoping to move some more things in tomorrow.
  20. The outside dual hits the ground more than one would think. I have a set of 16.9X28" duals I set up for my WD 45's, Think there are going to get sold. These two tractors have plenty of traction as it is. If I could get one on the trailer with a land-side dual attached I'd take it to a plow day just to see the looks I got!
  21. I've been involved in the two forklift thing at work also. Usually has to do with a 5 or more ton hoist going up or coming down. Not my favorite thing but we have actually had good luck doing it. Rant; How any facility as small as the one I work in can have as many hoists as it does completely blows my mind! The other thing is the amount of time we spend moving the stupid things around. If you've ever hung a mag-drill on the side of a hoist rail so you can drill 25/32" holes for stops....... Rant over.
  22. Have done this with some very rusty parts, (tire fluid leaked on rusty) great results! My only concern when heating things to get them apart is if the 'thing' has some sort of heat-treat process that the heat will compromise.
