  1. It uses science, not black magic and/or alchemy.
  2. Might have been an intent to search, idk
  3. They seem to make good stuff. Had a visit with them at RPRU in Bloomsburg and trust their quality.
  4. I've been trying to buy some small parts storage FOREVER.
  5. Bite your tongue! I haven't seen one yet. Crazy houseflies though. That is weird.
  6. I have a Kyocera duraforce pro 2 (I think that's what it's called) and I'm happy with it. It comes solid in a good housing, so no additional case necessary. It does everything I ask of it. I've stopped it several times and no issues except one. About 13 months in, the speaker got flaky. It buzzes and rattles. The regular ear piece works fine, but speaker phone or watching videos had lost sound quality now unless using headphones. I'm sure it's from one of the ten million times I've dropped it. Overall, it is what's advertised.
  7. I believe it's a spanner for a water pump, if I remember correctly. That wrench and a few others, along with the spark plug socket and the chisels, were in the toolbox of a tractor I bought at the Ed Adolph auction in Michigan. I never saw that tractor until months after, and all those years, and all that transport later, there they were.
  8. That's really cool. Circumstances being what they were, I inherited tools relatively young, before I bought any of my own. So, I have a bunch that were given to my dad as a graduation present in '76 and even some with my great grandfathers' names on them. I understand your appreciation of them. Just make sure your heirs know the provanence (sp?) of them while you're still around to tell it. Yes, please share!
  9. on the regular C, this is correct
  10. I found that one at an estate sale, in a cubby of a homemade cubby cabinet, so caked in old gunk, you couldn't read it. I held it up and said "a dollar" and no one outbid me. I really like the adventure of finding them.
  11. I think he means that it was off topic for him, on the day it came up in conversation between him and his buddy. At least, that's how I understood it.
  12. I have a modest collection of old IH tools, that I've picked up here and there over the years. I thought I'd post, since I put them all in one place today. I don't think any of them are particularly valuable or anything; I just like having them.
  13. Insurance should still cover it, as long as they were insured at the time. Actually collecting will require a talented attorney or three.
  14. I gotta say, I don't love socialist Europe, but these are two things the Germans have figured out. Reasonably fast (and variable for larger vehicle, wet weather) speed limits, and very toothy penalties for speeding and for not observing keep-right-except-to-pass. They also allow consumption of alcohol in public, but have a super low DWI threshold. Basically, if you've had so much as one, get a ride. The reason (in my opinion) that no one respects the speed limits here is that vehicle and road tech has improved in the last sixty years and speed limits have not reflected it. I personally would like to see speed limits that are reasonable, and more severe penalties. 'Course that would cut out a couple cronies, so we'll never see that.

    The Dog Thread

    My wife got pictures of the raccoon, but not the pup. This raccoon and our heeler were playing a little game. The coon would come and start raiding the feeder, dog would bark, coon would retreat to the tree to wait her out. When the coast was clear, coon would return for more easy meal. It was cute.
  16. When I got in an accident on I-90, the state charged my insurance company about nine quadrillion dollars to replace one section, so I'm not terribly optimistic for ya. 'course, knowing the state, they probably just chuck it out. Go around the dumpster.

    The Dog Thread

    He's been a good dog. I'd say he's earned it
  18. That might be a Chattanooga Glass logo. The ones I find around my area are all Owens Corning logos.
  19. Same here. I got busted playing with matches or a lighter once (can't remember which). In addition to getting my ace whooped, I got tossed in the car and driven to the site of a recent house fire and explained to me exactly how it happened -children playing with fire. That message lasted.
  20. That's really interesting. Is there a photo catalog of the auction? It's love to see that. I love learning about rare tractors
  21. I used to work at a large national chain pet store while I was in school. We were VERY humanitarian (he said with a tinge of sarcasm), so we fed the snakes flash frozen mice that are thawed in water just prior to feeding. If the snakes were young enough, they would eat them. The older ones, who'd lived their life at the snake farm on real live mice, wouldn't ea them. they'd get so emaciated we'd have to pack them all up and take them to the vet for evaluation and treatment. the evaluation was "they're not eating enough", and the treatment was that the vet would feed them live mice. Now, many of the policies, I really liked. Such as not selling dogs and cats, but facilitating a local shelter with adopting out cats. I like that a lot. Puppies need space to live in a grow. A pet store is not the place for that. We fed the best product to all species, and we were encouraged to take pets out and socialize them with humans, which I suppose is also good for pleasing the customer in the end, but it's good for the animals too. We didn't feed with customers present. I think it was for PETA type-related purposes, but it kept the crazies at bay. You know the ones who just enjoy the kill. But that no-live-mice policy was just a bit to brilliant for me to understand. it's been many years. I have no idea if they still do things this way.
  22. That's a decent approximation. Its not linear though. It's sinusoidal.
