    Charging system questions

    Ok so my MF1010 has not ever really charged since I have owned it, 6 years. I have just kept putting off repairs by keeping the battery on a trickle charger. Bad I know, but charging systems have always been my achilles heel. So I finally dove into it. The generator is ok, the voltage...

    Bush hog shaft frozen

    Lol, still stuck on my old problem, I guess. I got em freed up this morning. Some WD40 and a hammer. Nice and free now. Kinda tight for time right now but will flip on its side and pull blades when I get more time and sharpen/balance them. I was really impressed how well it cut my fields...

    Bush hog shaft frozen

    Well got back at it today with the same result. No budge! Here are some pics. . . This is to show how I was doing it. The chain around the tree, with 2x lumber to protect the tree. The end wrapped around the yokes and the other end is to my truck. I put the truck in 4wd and revved to...

    Bush hog shaft frozen

    So my neighbor approached me a week or so ago. Says he has this 4' bush hog that he has not used in years, and wonders if I want it, duh, of course. Everything is in great shape, except, the drive shaft slip section is frozen. He told me it was but said with heat and a hammer it has always...

    Mig welding question

    I have a small Campbell Hausfield 110v welder I have used about 20 years. It has done very well for me. I am pretty much self trained and can most of the time run good beads and get the penetration I need, for what I am doing. For settings, it only has hi-lo and 1-2 so hi-1 or hi-2 etc. I am...

    Framing nailer question

    I figure you guys would know this as well as anyone. Been considering a framing nailer for some time. Don't have a lot of uses for it, but occasionally one would be handy. I see there are 21* and 30* models but have no clue which I should get or which is better. I the steeper 30* just for...

    Warning for all

    Wasn't sure where to post this so I tried here. I hesitate to post this because it's not my stuff so I won't post particulars. My neighbor is not always at home, in fact seldom is. It's not a primary home. He lost the house in a brush fire nearly a year ago, but still had lots of equipment...

    Cutting rectangular holes?

    So, I installed my Air Rite dual airbag control in the overhead console of my truck, (2006 GMC 2500HD) where the cubby used to be. It looks OK, but I have the face plate from another overhead console that had the rear AC control in it and want to use to make it look professional. I popped the...

    Which blades?

    I go through blades pretty frequently but am wondering if anyone has found a set, style, brand that does a better job in cutting and ejecting tall grasses and weeds? Mower is GT52XLS

    Inverter subpanel question

    Well, as promised, batteries 3 and 4 are installed. Hoping to test it all out soon. I really want to get a meter to read battery percentage and charge state, but that is in next month's budget. And with all my previous gear stored above them. This is actually a picture of when only 2...

    Inverter subpanel question

    So I installed my inverter in my RV. Currently has 2 batteries, soon to have 4, running it. The inverter is currently set up so that I plug a cord into the outlet on the inverter, and through adapters to my 50amp inlet on the side of the RV. I eventually want to add a sub panel and separate...

    Battery box ideas

    Just an update. I did set the batteries in plastic battery boxes, with modifications, but the 4 battery cover is made of wood. However I lined it with coroplast (sp?). I got it at Home Depot and it comes in sheets of various sizes from about 1'x3' to about 4'x6' and is reasonably priced...

    Battery box ideas

    OK, so I am adding an inverter to my 5th wheel. Currently it has 2 batteries, that are on either side of the coach. I plan on eventually going with 4 batteries, and want the mounted in the canter, width wise, of the coach, side by side. There is a generator prep area in the front storage with...
