  1. McMaster Carr sells magnetic door seal by the foot.
  2. S&W 642 loaded with a combination of Magsafe and Winchester Silvertips +P's. Small enough that I don't violate the first rule of a gun fight. Sig Sauer P228 9mm under the seat of the truck.

  4. RCB, your point of view is a breath of fresh air! Thank you for sharing. Sometimes we can be a little intimidating on here, but we appreciate your point of view and thank you for helping us to understand the other side of the story. Rawleigh
  5. I use cornhead grease in the rollers on my old Cat since it doesn't leak out the seals. i also have it in the gearbox on my posthole digger that started leaking.
  6. Can you check the pressure between the pump and the valve?
  7. It is Smollett all over again!
  8. I had a hole in a coolant hose on my old F725 John Deere front mount mower. I went to the "local" John Deere dealership that had bought up all of the smaller dealerships in this half of the state. The parts guy ordered a hose he claimed was right. Three days later the hose was in. I asked for new clamps at the same time. They gave me a box with the clamps in it. The hose was @1 1/8 inch. The clamp box was bigger but I didn't think anything of it since I had them use boxes to hold miscellaneous parts before instead of bags. Fortunately when I got to the truck I opened the box. The clamps were at least for a 3" hose. I took it back inside and the boy at the counter said those were the correct clamps that the computer crossed them to. I said you are wrong. Next thing I know he had a screw driver out and was trying to tighten it down enough for the tiny hose. I told him to hold on because I wasn't going to accept that! I told him to just get the right size off the hose clamp rack and I would be on my way. He informed me that they did not have a hose clamp rack and if it wasn't spec'ed in the computer they didn't have it!!! I have never heard of a large dealership parts department not having a generic hose clamp rack! How useless! And after getting home the hose was wrong! I made one out of generic fuel line and got back to work! Parts departments have gotten totally worthless!

    Thank You

    Runner, have you been tested for Lyme's disease? My wife has had it for 5 years and a lot of the symptoms sound similar to yours. The tests are notoriously unreliable, so often it is a diagnosis of exclusion. Once it becomes chronic it has lots of manifestations that mimic other diseases, especially MS and RA. You spend a lot of time outdoors, so it is definitely a possibility. you may want to consult a lyme disaase specialist and see if they think your symptoms sound like lymes. Anyway, it is good to have you back. Rawleigh
  10. You've got that right! Good post.
  11. Boeshield T9 is the stuff AKwelder is talking about.
  12. I wish Randy was still with us to add a little personal info on this one!
  13. My wife loves Blue Bunny Peanut Butter Party and has eaten it for years. I find it hard as a rock. Much harder than Breyers which I usually eat. I don'rt know what happened to yours Art.
