    I knew that new forge had balls!!! LOL! i could not resist! nice job as usual!
  2. When it's clean it's also a good time to add a drain bong if it doesn't have one.
  3. This is just what I was told by the old-timers at the farm museum. They put one up there before I joined. They used 55 gallon drums buried in the ground to fill with concrete. Weld bolts to a rebar cage that will be buried in the concrete as attachment points for the tower. They told me you use a couple Links of chain as a hinge with one end attached to the bolts in the concrete and the other attached to two legs of the windmill. Use two long ropes and tractors to slowly right the windmill. One tractor pulls it up right while the other one provides braking to set it down slowly. Good luck wi
  4. Steam cleaner or pressure washer.
  5. If the rim is riveted it's not tubeless.
  6. I heard they were poisonous and would make you go crazy and die a slow and painful death if you ate one!!!
  7. Like Mike said, a footer of crushed stone would work well and be easier and cheaper than concrete. Some contractor might donate the bottom of one of his piles of crushed rock. Otherwise bury even with the ground so they can be mowed over.
  8. The radiator gaskets can be made from black builders felt (aka tar paper).

    Here is my Reed Prentis 4C. It weighs about 120 lbs. I paid $25 for it a few years ago. The rotating base was broken, so I brazed it and mounted on a piece of 3/8 plate for support. It is so tall I bolted some angle iron to the front of my bench to lower it down, and put a 2" x 1/4" steel leg under it that is bolted to the concrete floor. I haven't been able to break that mount loose yet! The second picture shows a 2.5 gallon oil jug in front of it for scale! You can see the hole for the grub screw I was talking about on the side of the vise next to the handle. If you back that out you
  12. @pede is our resident expert. I am sure he will be along soon.
  13. I guess I'm in the DC time zone! LOL
  14. I just got a stockholder notice from a company that was mailed on December 15th. It's now May 25th. The company that mailed it is about 15 mi from me as a crow flies. They could have taped it to a turtle's shell and it would have been here by now!
  15. There's no accountability for what you do anymore unless you're a police officer who kills a black person.
  16. Yikes! I hope the doctors can put him back together pretty well.
  17. I imagine the Grumman delivery Vans are governed by its frontal surface area!

    I love my Reed Prentiss. @120 lbs. If you don't already know it, there is a grub screw on the right side that holds the split nut adjuster in the front.
  19. Wix 51162 or NAPA 1162 on the transmission according to Wix.
  20. Thanks Runner!!

    You might try Depco Pumps. http://www.depcopump.com/catalogs.php
  22. I have had good luck using the WIX filter lookup site. Sometimes you have to look under the engine rather than the machine. The NAPA number is the Wix number with the first digit dropped. 4 digits rather than 5. I don't know about your engine, but it could be the the engine was replaced with a later one at some point. The block does not seem to be yellow.
  23. What is the puddle on the ground under it??
  24. I always wanted one of those! What is the availability of the tracks? I know the Israeli army used a lot of them.. I know White built some. Does the front axle drive the track?
