    Westendorf Hitch and Go

    That's what I want to buy for my hay wagon. Since I only have one loader tractor getting bales out of the field requires a lot of hitching and un hitching the wagon.

    After it cools does the part go to a machine shop to turn OD and radius transition to the ball?

    JX95 Fuel Issue

    Check to make sure o ring isn't damaged on filter or doubled up. If there was a vent on filter head for bleeding make sure it is tight and sealing properly.

    Millermatic 250

    My work has a millermatic 250 that has been sitting in a corner and not being used. I ask why and was told it welded crappier than the crappy welder at the tech center. It has two rotary knobs and no digital display. From further conversation wire feed is a little erratic and they had trouble laying a good bead with it. Is it difficult to diagnose issues with the welder are there voltage checks I can do to diagnose problems. Are parts readily available and reasonable in price? Thinking about buying it and possibly repairing it to use it at my house for repairs and random projects.

    Saving Money

    When I lost my job back in August my biggest concern was health ins. Luckily I was able to land a new job within a month but I still had to pay the cobra ins till the end of 2018. $2k a month to keep the family insured. One thing I really like about how a lot of banks do the online wallets to help you track your expenses makes it easier to save money I almost treat it like a game.

    Saving Money

    I was watch PBS news hour last night and they interviewed a lady in NJ whos husband worked for the federal government and she was a teacher. She was crying about having to call financial institutions and lenders about not being able to make their monthly payment on time or at all for the month. Do people not save any money and run so much debt that they have no reserves to make any payments on debts? Shut down is going on two weeks so that is one or no missed paydays assuming they get paid biweekly or monthly.
