    Your right it is, but spending another 10K for a bond, to scam the government out of money on their own scam sounds like a good way to get stuffed in jail, plus you have to deal with all the extras that come with "selling" grain such as....


    "All license holders are required to have one examination each year. Examiners provide an onsite review including an audit of records and a physical measurement of grain bins and facilities to identify total capacities, shortages in storage, obligations, open storage accounts, contracts, insurance policies, and safety issues. Federally licenses grain warehouses are exempt from this requirement if they have had an exam conducted by the USDA during the license period."

    Don't forget fees to pay the gov "costs".

    Tell her you changed your mind.

    Instead of making the dollar store a night club, tell her you are turning it into a strip club!


    Topless donut shops are popular.

  3. I suspect that a lot of the "weldable" cast iron is cast steel. Do a spark test or drill a small hole and observe the chips to tell which is which. I heard that Vermont Castings stoves were made from remelted engine blocks. Cast pieces that are subject to heat are difficult to repair. Cast that has had the carbon burnt out of it by overheating is basically scrap.

  4. I added a hyd operated lifter to my splitter for large wood. Kind of L shaped. It's really handy. I think Timber Wolf? makes one. I saw one at farm machinery place and just made my own with stuff I had.

    I thought that the 973 loader used the same rails as a D7, but I don’t know that for sure. That is my recollection of the talks that I had with Cat. 

    Sounds right as 983 is the same as D8.

  6. Once you cycle it a few times you may need to add hyd oil to tractor. A friend bought a used splitter and hooked it up to his tractor hyd. It worked but the splitter was full of nasty oil that contaminated the tractor system. As previously mentioned operating pressure of the tractor versus the splitter system will be an issue if it is lower.
