    Need to update finishing mower

    Bought this mower new in 83 when we purchased our Ford 1300, which was also bought new, but from a different dealer. Mower was about 600.00. It has since had the deck reworked where the bearings go (you can see the metal plates that were used). The skid shoe needs repair and welding back on...

    BREAKING NEWS!!!!.......

    Or maybe it should read broken news. Went out to clean vines off of pto shaft on mower where they had wrapped around it (don't you hate it when it does that). Well, the bolt that holds pto coupler from mower to shaft was missing. Normally, you have a spring loaded pin thing you push in to...

    Electric pecan shellers, anybody build one?

    Looks like we have a bumper crop of pecans this year, probably due to all the rain back in the spring. Any body have one, and preferably one you have built, that you would be willing to share pics? I have envisioned a couple of rollers (like conveyor belt roller), and then a drive roller like...

    Fire Dept. access....

    I was reading Eddie's hijacked thread about fire dept. scooping up a scuba diver with helicopter to put out forest fire, and it got me to thinking. If someone's property is on fire (say a wooded area near Eddie, not his property), if there are no hydrants nearby, does the FD have the right to...

    Home made slope meter...

    for the slope, not the tractor. Take a piece of wood, maybe 2' long, 1x4, stick a piece of stiff wire into side, bend up to be vertical with board. Hang a protractor, (or a paper copy of one) from wire bent over so protractor has curved part hanging down. Support wire should show through...

    Lost a friend this week

    Lifelong friend passed away from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident about 4 years ago. He was buried today in a little cemetery in the town we grew up in. Pretty impressive rig he used to transport the body. He helps out with a lot of burials on returning Iraq vets. More about his...

    With the latest recall of toys from China dealing with lead paint, I wonder how many of us have a hazardous tractor (from the components it's made from, not from driver actions)? I think my 49-52 year model Farmall still has the original brakes on it (probably with asbestos), and if it had any...

    Changing engine oil to compensate..

    for lower sulfur fuel. I thought this was an interesting twist, on a 20+ year old tractor no less, that they suggest a different classification oil for the engine rather than suggest a fuel additive...
