    Sorry for your loss
  2. How to deal with elderly parents

    This is a very difficult subject. We all had a hand in taking care of my mother for the 9 years after dad died. Even when we all pitched in to help the majority of the work fell on my sister and I. One brother did handle her finances while that was direct care it was a big help in the when she had to go in a nursing home. I was the last hold out and wanted mom to stay in her home. To this day I still have mixxed fealings if she should have gone in the nursing home or not. Mom did get better minute to minute care, but we still had to have many conversations with the staff to get that care. Almost the same amount of work, just different. We were able to keep her home for almost 9 months before it had to sold. I was fortunate that my daughter bought it, so that eased moms mind some. Puenomia took mom from us only 3 months later. Follow your heart, but dont let it cloud your common sense. This was one of the hardest times in my life watching what age did to the people that were my parents / friends.

    Same problem. Also could access from iphone. Had to delete link and reestablish a new one
  5. Loadstar reliability/ reputation

    Now that is just plain funny
  6. CAD software?

    I have used Uni graphics, Solid-works, and currently using Co Create. What ever you choose, you will have to invest TIME to learn. None of the tools can be a causal use tool when trying to learn, you will become frustrated very quickly. Uni graphics was first, many years ago, I found it to be difficult to learn as a casual user. The newer version of Uni graphics has the best attributes of both Solid-works and Co Create. Company went to Solid works about the time I got heavy into design work (having the engineers do their own design - prior was to have dedicated designers). I found it intuitive to use (I can visualize the part before putting it on paper) and parametric modeling made sense to me. Most of the designers who switched from Uni graphics had a real hard time making the switch. Our company's integration of Solid works made it very prone to having crashes, that was a real issue. I moved into a different role about 6 years ago, and they were using Co create and had to switch. Non parametric modeling, Had a **** of a time making the switch, but now don't want to go back. I still use Solid works a little bit. Sometimes being able to demonstrate the motion of any assembly is useful, and the mating features in Solid works is very easy to use. (Mates in Solid works have to be used correctly or it can create havoc when making changes. I have picked up designs from other people and spent way to much time fixing stuff just to make a few small changes.) I also like the FEA package in Solid works better than Co Create. That is mostly to do with the version of Co Create I am using (older). Many of the projects I work on are huge, and I have never had a problem with Co Create pulling in the entire design, Solid works had a real issue with very large assemblies. I have never had any issues with getting designs from any other source (a lot of the companies I get design file from use Solid works and other cad systems) Co create is one of the easiest CAD system I have used to integrate files from multiple CAD systems. For the work I am currently doing, it would take me roughly 2x the time for the same designs as it did with Solid works ( I actually did a test after learning Co create - and had a hard time believing it but it was true) As always this is just my 2 cents for what it is worth. I think CAD system is almost like the question which is better John Deere or IH, a lot depends on who you are talking to.
  7. Try it again

    Congrats. Have fun with it!
  8. Need a good line drawing of a Farmall

    No problem with you using one. Pm me with your e mail and i can send.
  9. Need a good line drawing of a Farmall

    I had these drawings done by an intern (at the time) for an industrial design company I was working with. These were done from an original photograph. This was part of a door decal that went on our IH 4700 lpx. The decal shown wasn't the final version, I had the same intern do the drawing of the HOLT Crawler, as the gray image didn't blend well in the decal. I think I paid $100 to get the OS6 and the Holt picture done in line drawings. I did the KW from a picture myself. Here is a walk around video as well of the Truck when we completed it.
  10. Asking for prayers, held out as long as I could

    Lisa just completed first chemo treatment. She in for the long haul. 18 weeks of chemo, followed by 7 weeks of radiaton followed by one year of maintence chemo. She has been a trouper, not looking forward to side effects but we will manage. Daughter and unborn baby are still ok. Bady’s tumor has grown, but prognosis’s is still positive. Right now they plan on keeping them here in Rochester. The baby’s surgical team is being headed up by the chief surgen and head of the pediatrics department at strong. Baby’s condition is rare so the hve the best team set aside. Thaking it one day at a time
  11. She is home!

    👍 That is fantastic
  12. Forbidden

    Yup same thing

    That is too good for them
  14. Distillate & Kerosene to Gasoline Conversions (?)

    Nice Pic, I always knew that there was a shield over the manifold, but have never seen one. All of them were gone on the tractors I have.
