  1. Looks like the grader is setup with some kind of 90 degree conveyor?
  2. Looking to trade up?
  3. My buddies brother said when I walked out the door to go to work and the goat was standing on the hood chewing on my windshield wipers that's when I stepped back into the house grabbed my rifle and solved that problem
  4. I thought his Dodges faired well because of lack of road salt but it was the sheep all along
  5. Don't be too hard on Emma I'm sure she meant well
  6. Is E series electric? Does the mowing deck flip up?
  7. Anson, I'm thinking he didn't make detective, looking for tire tracks and boot marks in the dust πŸ€”
  8. Now to load up head south and give db1486 a hand😁 Bins all full? Any on the ground? Looks like pup is working out great!
  9. Looks like disc/drums yes that's a bit excessive Nice main compressor 😍 those Devilbiss pumps 446? lived in a ton of body shops and put out lots of air and lived for decades That's one common problem with hawgs πŸ₯Ί
  10. That thing looks πŸ’ β™₯️
  11. Depends if the previous owner tried to externally power the coil
  12. I would test the coil, it's probably fried
  13. Staple of bikers diet since 1903😎
  14. Burn wood in the shoulder seasons in stove and delay turning the floor on with the coal boiler, if Mike says coal is selling for $1000 a ton shoulder season might be Oct-April, in the 70's and 80's this week, still riding the motorcycle to work dodging deer in the morning which is weird but really welcome, the temps not the deer
  15. My Dad talks of a sow they had on the homestead that would wander off into the bush each time for birth and return later, not interested in a pen or straw, hoping it's the same for you
  16. Why would big oil want to invest in new construction give the climate, if I was them I would just do enough to take it to the end and bleed out as much profit as possible in the meantime
  17. Same thing happened with a guy shot a Grizzly in self defense, he felt the crushing weight of the law trying to defend himself, it was probably easier dealing with the bear
  18. I'd like to see a video of this thing running @augercreek
  19. I have heard DD used by many, wanting to hear from the machinist types, there is a learning curve for doing by hand but once you have it you are set for life with nothing more required, I would say sharpening your bit centered and back grinding the flute and maintaining your angle are the 3 biggest challenges
  20. That has to be awful concerning for a cattleman, as if you don't have enough other challenges. We have a member here that farms and is tucked up against the eastern slopes of the Rocky mountains that started losing a few head a few years back and would find Coyotes, I suggested it could be a cat causing your problems and the Coyotes are just cleaning up the scraps. Recall an old Outdoor Life condensed story of a couple of cats in the US that developed a taste for select organs, the number of cattle they killed before they were exterminated was staggering
  21. One of the biggest things about leaving my main career employer was the treasure trove of items gathered from dumpster diving πŸ˜ͺ I had taken a few trips down to Spokane area to help a member here work on his dozer and during these trips the hospitality displayed and cuisine was remarkable, the feature each time was a fantastic prime rib roast prepared on a Showtime rotisserie cooker in afternoons while we were still working or enjoying a cold one. I seriously was considering buying one of these when i went to the dump and one was sitting new in box with paperwork, might have been used once tough to say. My daughter was with me that trip and i think she was surprised by how excited i got 😁 its produced some fine meals itself and is still working perfectly.
  22. If they really were interested in saving the planet they would stop exporting coal to China, they burn more in a day than we burn all year
  23. I checked and it had an old Weaver K3 on it, I switched it to a Tasco Pronghorn way better scope and budget minded, Bushnell Scopechief would be that vintage to expand your search and was offered in variable power I would say the K3 is 50's era, it would have been on the rifle, my Dad had a gunsmith rechamber to the Norma Mag probably between 60-63, the 300 Win Mag came out in 63 and put a serious halt to the expense and modification required and drove a coffin nail in that round and others, I think the last box of Norma Mag was over $120 over 20 yrs ago and almost impossible to find, really need dies for reloading on that one, it was a good round but in hindsight wish it would have stayed in its original caliber now 06 is available anywhere for reasonable $$$ and is no slouch itself
  24. Pretty sure I have an old Weaver on that era 30-06 that was re chambered to 308 Norma Mag, actually might be 50's era, modern scopes are much better
