  1. That has been my thoughts on auctions as well. I've wasted many a day standing around for that one piece to sell only to go home with nothing to show for it.
  2. The same happens around here with tractors with loaders on them. Con artist...errrr...I mean "auctioneer" says "we're going to sell the loader then the tractor w/o loader then we're going to sell it together"
  3. I have a 311 pull type brush mower that could use some new parts. I could use a couple clutch facings (474599R3) and the front hanger bearing on the driveline (ST669). I looked these up and was a little shocked by the prices. The friction discs for the clutch are listed at $110 each and the bearing is listed at $237. Is there any way to find these parts aftermarket? If I replaced these parts and put a new set of blades ($500) I'm going to have almost $1000 in just a couple parts on a machine that's barely worth that much.
  4. I have a 2020 F350, 7.3 gas, 10 speed. SRW. Crew cab. 6'8" box. Have about 15k miles on it. I specifically haven't reset one of the fuel economy monitors to get an overall view of the mileage under all conditions. I'm sitting at 14.4mpg since new. As far as shifting goes, I really don't notice it.
  5. That's quite the dirty trick. One that might find you buried under the water line if you mess with the wrong company.
  6. I was doing some construction staking a couple days ago and was talking to the utility guys putting watermain in. He said it's so bad getting pipe that people are starting to steal it from other job sites so they can finish their own jobs.
  7. I believe there's an old saying about looking a gift horse in the mouth that directly applies here.
  8. In Revelations there is warnings of the "wolves" disguising themselves as leaders within the church. Really makes a guy think at this point.
  9. This has been my struggle and I've talked to others in the church who feel the same and are having the same struggle. In times of trial and tribulation a persons true colors show through. Unfortunately those true colors of the church fly directly in the face of their teachings.
  10. As a life long Catholic the actions of our priest, our diocese (Superior, WI), and the Vatican regarding the virus in the last year and half have really caused me to question how much they truly trust in God. All of my life I've been instructed by the church to have faith in God above all others in all situations and he will provide for you. The virus hits and now we're shutting the doors, putting restrictions on what it takes to get into the church when it opened again, and restricting how many people can attend mass. All this is based on what the CDC is advising. So now the church is letting a group of people who can't decide if eggs are good or bad dictate when and how the church can be open instead of trusting in God?? On a side note, in April 2020 I was the president of the parish council and during a council meeting it got very intense when the discussion of how to handle the virus situation came up. We had all 6 members of the council in favor of staying open with no restrictions (masks optional) because in times of hardship the church should be a place of refuge. Our priest was adamantly opposed and used his veto power to overrule the council. He even stated "if Jesus were here with us he would wear a mask". I have not been back to the church since then and am having a real internal struggle deciding if I will ever return. Sorry for the long rant but this is just the tip of the iceberg of what's in my head on this topic.
  11. same here. I've got one attached to about 3/4 of the implements that need them at this point. I also like to use the 3pt arms to hold draw pins.
  12. I've been running a 50/50 mix of Trit and peas as a cover crop over new alfalfa seeding the last couple years. I like it because it doesn't go down and smother out the expensive alfalfa like oats is known to do and I get a nice forage crop when I take it off as baleage. Ideally I'd like to take it just before it heads out and the peas start to fill the pods. Last year I missed by about a week due to weather but I've been feeding the baleage to the beef cows and they haven't complained yet.
  13. This is maybe a longshot but I've got this old Old Milwaukee beer clock that was in the milk house forever. As you can see I'm missing an hour hand. I've taken everything apart to clean it and there are no significant markings to indicate a model or make. Can anyone help on where to get parts for this?
  14. Did King Timmy approve this message?? I saw yesterday that if the people west of the river are really good he MIGHT slightly roll back some of his restaurant capacity restrictions by July. So you've got that going for you.
