  1. I saw a yellow one on the road a few minutes ago, followed by an early Bronco and a 60's Falcon station wagon. Must be a car show somewhere.
  2. I know zero about racing but would one of these work? https://www.amazon.com/Oregon-42-095-Small-Engine-Leveling/dp/B00TM8WJM8/ref=asc_df_B00TM8WJM8/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198076851563&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11671198184568168152&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9008337&hvtargid=pla-377120289990&psc=1 We use them all the time to measure mower blade height.
  3. We have a Kubota L45 backhoe at work that is 6-7 years old. Last week the back wheel almost fell off, only had 2 lugs holding it. Wheel had never been off since new. No idea why it decided to loosen up when it did. Had to put a new wheel on as the holes were wallowed out. The operator did not notice it until someone flagged him down and said "you're wheel is about to fall off".
  4. When I was in college in the early 80's in Southwest virginia, I used to go rock climbing some in the nearby mountains. One day I was going up an easy face and had both hands on a ledge above my head. As I raised my face up even with the ledge, I saw a large timber rattler about 6" away looking right at me. Needless to say I went right back down the way I came. Years later when I was service manager at the Deere dealership I sent one of the road techs up to a house that was on a ridge top bordering the National park. He called me from the truck (on the radio, no cell phones yet) and said he
  5. They can also help in the snow for dogs that pick up "snowballs" between their toes. My Collies do and will not go far without sitting down and licking their paws in certain types of snow. My German Shepherds never did and loved breaking trail in deep snow. I'm really not sure what the difference is, the paws look about the same to me.
  6. I'm not sure if it was "talking" politics or not being allowed to that drove some folks away.
  7. I gave up on CB's a long time ago because of the foul language. Only thing it was good for was to hear every possible use of the "F" word.
  8. Maybe people are finally catching on to the fact that the only bidding that counts in an on line auction is the last 5 minutes or so.
  9. He is in South Dakota. Those of us a bit farther south are real believers in car and truck A/C
  10. Our Governor just passed a law banning the use of most Hydroflourocarbons in our state starting Jan 2022. But, I can't find a list of specifically which ones are included. I know the Feds said no more of it in new cars as of 2019, I think, but there doesn't seem to be much information on what is going to happen for repairs to all the 134A equipped cars going forward. Since that's probably 90% of all the vehicles on the road I can't see them banning it outright, but who knows in these crazy times. Any of you HVAC guys know what the real scoop is? I think our Gov is trying to get ahead of
  11. Haven't seen redneckhippie for a while either.

    Here are the rest of mine. First is my Dad's that he had when I was a child. Next is a "Luther" 3 inch. It's small but still weighs about 25 lbs. Then my "modern" use everyday, don't care if I grind on it accidentally, then the smaller C parker that is mounted to a receiver tube, then the mack daddy parker which has a split thread block so is non functional for the time being. Not sure how much it weighs but it's almost too heavy for me to pick up. Then the post vise my Sister gave me, and finally a Wilton I bought at a yard sale 40 years ago. It was frozen up and I pulled a big post out of t

    Using the old tools for the work they were intended for makes me feel more part of the line of tradition. Anvils and vices are 2 things that last long enough to give multiple owners a lifetime of use.
