    Cursing

    I’ve worked in the heavy construction world as an engineer for the last 25 years so I’ve worked with all kinds of great people with “colorful” word choices. On mining superintendent shared the story of his wife asking him why he cussed so much. He replied that if he didn’t the crew wouldn’t know when he was upset. She suggested that he try not cussing for a week. Not surprisingly everyone knew when he was upset even without the cussing and he cleaned up his language going forward. That was more than 20 years ago and I’ve done my best to follow his example ever since. Dave
  2. How about a capstan type winch? I’ve never used one myself but seems as if it could work pretty well in this type of application. Could possibly be as simple as a horizontal shaft engine and a wide pulley. Dave
  3. My wife and I have been doubly blessed in that we have stayed healthy and neither of us have missed a day of work so it became the money for a few small purchases that we had been considering for a while. Ours showed up as a debit card that we almost threw away as junk mail! Got me wondering how much was sent out in this fashion that was never spent and if the debit card company keeps it... Dave
  4. Thanks Danny and Red211 for the replies. They look so different I didn’t even notice the old one there. Dave
  5. What do the standard rollers look like? Guessing it’s something less than 3 flanges. Are the tracks different too to work with the 3 flange rollers?
  6. Did you write it into the sales agreement that Matt has to join the site and post regular updates for all of your followers Chris? Glad to hear that it is going to a good home. You will just have to find another piece restore and post about... Dave
  7. Merry Christmas Chris (and everyone else)! While I don’t post often, I appreciate reading everyone’s posts and seeing the friendly support that everyone provides to each other. The world needs more of that! Stay safe and best wishes for 2021! Dave
  8. Have there been any cases at the end of the world Joey? I know it’s a long way to a hospital, but seems if they controlled who’s coming in the rest of you would be okay going about your daily lives. Enjoying your daily posts as always. Dave
  9. How about a new thread with photos of the Power Wagon? Dave
  10. Welcome Pirate! You are off to a great start with photos in your first post. This thread is in the “General IH” board. The Construction board is down a bit further on the home page. If you click on the “Red Power Magazine” logo above and scroll down you can’t miss it Dave
  11. Nice save Pirate! You might try posting over on the IH Construction Equipment page on here. Lots of experience with gas start diesels over there. I’m sure the folks that hang out over there would enjoy some more photos. 🙂 Dave
  12. Might be out of Danella’s rental fleet. The railroads are one of their biggest customers. In addition to used sales they have an auction a couple of times a year. https://www.danella.com/product-category/used-equipment/plymouth-meeting-pa/?doing_wp_cron=1606409414.7431368827819824218750 Dave
  13. Looks like a prime candidate for a new Tonyinca project! @Tonyinca 🙂
  14. I left a corporate job at the end of March and went to work for a friend’s construction company as an estimator. Best move ever! It’s like I get to play in my buddies sandbox every day. Our son graduated from HS in the spring and youngest daughter started HS this fall. Older daughter graduates HS in the spring and has been accepted to multiple colleges for fall of 2021. Everyone is healthy in my immediate circle and the grownups haven’t missed any work. Overall felling very blessed and can’t complain.
  15. Pretty cool. Went to a truck drag race in Maryland many, many years ago. Guy ran in a Ryder truck. Announcer called it “the rent-a-racer”. Got points for originality in my book.
