    Stick Welder Hall of Fame ...

    If, somewhere on the planet, there is a Stick Welder Hall of Fame...... there should be a corresponding Stick Welder Hall of Shame ... I respectfully enter my name for the latter. Good wishes do not overcome no talent or no patience with stuff thinner than 1/8". Someday I am going to...

    Pimp my 1526 exhaust ....

    Got tired of the 1526 spitting black krap on startup all over my front blade .. Procured me a stainless 1-1/2" O.D. weld elbow, drilled thru/installed a 10-32 stainless bolt, and now have stainless exhaust tip deflectors on two of my Mahindri... LIFE IS GOOD...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Summer project, smaller bucket and manual thumb install E70B

    I have an old E70B. As a early summer project I am going to take the old 4' ditch bucket off and put on a 20" trench/stump digging bucket with a manual thumb. I have to rework the stick some, and plan on working on it if we get rainy days on and off. Moved stuff around in the back of the barn...

    Updating the cameras on my E70B

    In the process of replacing my old 720P wireless cameras with a new 1080p HD system. Just hay wired with prelim brackets to hold the cameras. Cameras are on the pricey side, but the new versions also seem to have zero interference/noise on the pictures. Really a noticeably clearer picture...

    Start to fix 5035 steering leak

    Finally started to fix the leaking HSU in my 5035 steering. It has been leaking a little for years after yanking my arse on/off the tractor many, many times. It has an Eaton HSU and the seal kit it $103 at the dealer, and I am going to have him procure me one Monday from Texas. Or at least...

    Add foot switch to 2555 PTO ....

    I sometimes have to turn my PTO on/off when blowing around my barn to keep the snow from just going onto the barn roof. The 2555 dash PTO button is a pain. I wanted to find something to add to my joystick, but was not happy with the options unless I wanted to spend big buckazoids for some type...

    Step/handrail mods for old Op...

    Just finished putting a top rail on my E70B. I have put new steps going up top and added a few hand holds to the side of the cab, too. Maybe allow me to work up there and still get up off my knees in the future.

    2555 Cab backup cam

    2555 cab has nice side mirrors, and I put a good panoramic mirror inside to help with the rear view. But somedays, during the blowing of snow, when the cab is not completely warmed up, etc... it is still hard to see backing up or if someone is coming down the drive/roadway. So put in a $60...

    2555 Cab, stainless exhaust tip...

    Every time I cold start my 2555 she spits out black sooty water specks for a few minutes while the exhaust is warming up... It bothers me 'cuz it is pointed right at the spot I keep my yellar diesel cans, and they look like krap after a while. [ don't want to move them, either ] Procured a 2"...

    Propane today $ 1.509/gal 11/26/2018

    Just had my yearly fill of my propane tank. Paid $ 1.509 per gallon, with my 9 cent old geezer discount and owning my tank. Johnson's Propane, Gaylord, Mi. Gets any cheaper, and I will start heating my barn with it. :)

    Making a new trail drag...

    For years I have been using an old trailer gate for a trail drag. But it was a little narrow, and decided to make a new one...keeping the old one for roughing in a new trail. The old one is mostly made with 2" 3/8" wall angle, with some thinner angle for the tread area. Brush/sticks/etc stuck...

    Cab mirror [ Engineer42's fault ]

    Due to Engineer42 posting about his rear view mirror, and him planting a seed into my pea sized brain... I just finished putting mine in. So, blame him, not me... if you can't sleep at night. I bought the mirror on Ebay [ you can get them on Amazon, too. search for CHUPACABRA mirror ] and then...

    Pro Z 100 series 59A30054150 Chute Restrictor kit...

    Anyone have this kit installed yet..? I took my rubber chute off today and blocked the discharge with some plywood, and did not like it. Would still like to try this kit to keep stuff off my drive. Blocking the discharge with the plywood was a nasty experience, so I do not want to do it...
