  1. helped a contractor this morning who is demoing a fertilize plant to add to a feed mill. No OSHA for miles.
  2. Bad to the bone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Beware of this type running gear. Cross member made of fabricated rectangle with weld seam on the top and bottom. It will collapse.
  4. Gary those handles look like the ones we had for a warm morning coal stove to shake the grates and remove the ash pan.
  5. My sister and I bought our parents out years before they passed. Then we bought more land. I grew up farming but I am NOT a farmer. I worked on the road for months at a time. I sold my part to her for exactly what I had invested. Best decision I ever made.
  6. Thanks Bitty, have not run into that problem here yet.
  7. Interesting, when you can post a pic.
  8. Can you send me a pic of the guards???
  9. Started off replacing the bull pin in feed trailer. It was hot dipped galvanized, YUCK Next built pipe fence over a double waterer. Finished around lunch, now he wants more.
  10. Graduated in 73. Counselor told us if we didn't go to collage we would wind up digging ditches for minimum wage. Saw her at our 10th reunion, asked her if she wanted to compare pay stubs, then I asked about all the collage graduates in my class making 20-30,000. I wonder if the collages paid a bounty to the counselors to get kids to sign up.
  11. Mike, I lived on the edge for many years but age and wisdom caught up with me. Plus I don't heal as fast anymore.
  12. I almost got on a incline railcar once until I looked at the sprockets that pulled it up the mountain.
  13. Bitty, Good luck on your future ventures. If we lived closer together I would be worrying you to death to partner up on a large fab/repair shop.
  14. I use 3-4 times the thickness off the steel for the hole size. So 1/2" plate - 1-1/2"-2" hole.
  15. NOPE, NOPE and no way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  16. We have the same thing here, family's with the 3rd generation on welfare and more able to work than I am.
  17. Cat with ASV undercarriage.
  18. Local farmer did not grease the swivel pins that hold the undercarriage on his tracked skid steer. 60 tons on the front and 20 tons on the back to get the undercarriage off.
  19. In 1961 I think dad and I were coming back from the barn (been milking) and a ball of fire came south to north in the air. Heard on the radio next morning a large military plane broke up over our area and finally crashed about 30 miles away. We picked up small pieces of metal for many years.

    Shopping for a new motor, wife/momma will not let me mow the yard. I cannot tell weeds from flowers. I am only allowed to gas it up, check oil, grease and sharpen blades.
