    State of the Union

    MY guess is that marriage is not what she imagined it would be. It may be harsher punishment than deportation. cab

    Stieners is shutdown due to weather today

    I am about 40 miles west of you, I doubt that the school buses could make it down most back roads. We were plowed out 36 hours ago and have drifts in the road knee to waist deep. The county has enough problem keeping the main roads cleared, what with the wind and lake effect. In the good old days, the superintendent would leave his home onM91 and head our way. If he made it through, we had school. If he got stuck, he called the bus garage to cancel school and stayed for breakfast.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

    how about while we're at it we get rid of the 25% tariff on steel so we can get five miles of wall ,fence or whatever for the price of four. Won't need to protect the steel industry because of a huge (wasteful?) demand for materials. Better still, build it with piles of junk cars. the wall doesn't have to look pretty to be effective. cab

    can my muzzleloader be saved?

    Forgot to clean mine properly one year. I wound up wrapping my brass brush with 000 steel wool and chucking the cleaning rod in my cordless drill. takes the rust out pretty fast. The pits not so much. cab

    IH 205 combine

    What parts do you need? I have three parts 303's there may be some interchange. I don't have an unloading auger like it looks you need, I have some mangled augers that would have the casting for the hinge assuming they are the same diameter. cab

    Question for Harvesting in Muddy Conditions

    Empty, cuz when you do get stuck, it will be easier to pull you out. My 615 with a 833 head gets more use on the swamp I farm than the 715 with an 843. It is enough lighter that it will still be going where the 715 would be stuck. A three row head rolling harvests a lot more than a four row outfit mired, it pulls out easier too. cab

    Anyone know what this fits

    An anchor rope? The only two springs that I can recall that look anything like that are the down pressure spring on a trip lift grain drill and the support spring on a mower bar. cab

    tariff payments

    Don't spend it too fast. You'll need gas to go to the ASCS office ( at least twice) Receipts from your elevator to confirm yield, Then you will be liable for all the taxes on your windfall. 15% for social security and medicare, if you make any money at all, at least 15% to the IRS and then whatever your state collects for income tax. I don't know what you currently earn an hour, but the time to qualify for this might be better spent on overtime at work. cab

    IH 715 Combine choking at feeder mouth

    I used to have that problem. Now, I remove head from feeder, block up the drum with a board or ratchet strap., use a wire brush on my four inch grinder to remove and rust and dirt up as far as I can. Then I spray the area with graphite paint (slip plate from tsc). Do the same thing behind the drum on the header. This eliminates the time and misery of trying to scour things clean. cab
