  1. The Maine Antique tractor club has some sort of rig for pulling garden tractors. Maybe you could use an old fashioned wooden stone boat? I used to use a pick up or car hood for a stone boat. Was hard on hoods. The pointed ones worked good.

    This week

    They grow peaches in upstate NY and we grow them here in Maine. Seems like NJ also used to but that may be all houses by now.
  3. There is no connection from the electrical system to the magneto. A ground wire or connection only. Reverse polarity on battery might cause a problem.
  4. I use a Lisle for 3/8 and up. Accurate sharpening is essential for an accurate hole which requires finishing with a reamer. I have some other ones including drill doctor which haven't been all that good but they are used and probably need attention.
  5. My father bought a 47 Chevy new and sold it with 150,000 miles on it when he bought a new 54 Chevy which was also sold with 150, 000 miles neither one had any major work done, just oil changes, tune ups. These were 6 cyl one standard, one automatic.
  6. I've heard these referred to as a wallet flush.
  7. It's a good year for hummingbirds here also. My wife saw some of them surfing on a stream from a garden hose that was aimed up in the air for watering so it made an arc. We don't have a feeder just lots of plants, flowers etc. which have attracted a few of them.
  8. your plan sounds good to me as well as Farmall 1066's advice. Local ag extension may do free soil tests.
  9. We call vehicles with the floorboards gone "Flintstones" around here.
  10. Another source is Garage Journal. They have large section on vises with many people who collect/restore etc. Practical Machinist also has a lot of vises.
  11. 80-90 gear oil is what we used for rear end and trans. Electric 2 spd shifter unit takes its own oil, usually on cover of unit, light weight oil. maybe 10 w in winter?
  12. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals House of the Rising Sun The Egg Albany NY. I haven't got the link thing figured out yet. interesting version by a Vermonter. It's on you tube
  13. Saw one this weekend at truck show that was a German military ambulance converted to motor home or camper. Pretty cool but tall. Didn't have anything to take pictures with unfortunately.
  14. The rotor usually is on a tapered end of crankshaft retained by a bolt or a nut.
  15. Hitler's revenge
  16. Speaking of surplus military generators, an old guy near here used to power and heat his shop with a fairly large WW 2 era generator-gas I think. It lived in a back corner of the shop and the exhaust went out the chimney. So no lost heat. may have been some large resistance heaters as well. I never saw it in operation only at the estate sale.
  17. Thats good but he probably won't be pulling the full 20kw continuously so the 3 GPH is a max? like $18/hr??
  18. Look look on bottom of vise for country of origin
  19. Reminds me of the old 30-30 warranty. 30 feet or 30 seconds whichever comes first.
