    IRS and what do they really do with all their power

    My 2019 return wasn't processed until after some people received their 2020 refund. IRS owes me over $3500 based on my 2019 & 2020 returns. They've had time to send me 3 letters acknowledging they owe me the money, but haven't found time to write a check. Yet when they mistakenly thought I...

    Skidding Tongs for pulling lumber - What else do I need?

    What size trees are you harvesting? Those 32" tongs are going to be a PITA to use on anything under ~24" diameter. The removable points on those timber stuff tongs make it impractical to set them into the log by smacking with a hammer. The tongs will lose their purchase on the log with any...

    Off road diesel - How do you find locations?

    Motor fuels are a regulated & taxed commodity at State level. Gas stations often need to be licensed or permitted to sell fuel and that license / permit is posted at each station. It will have the name of the department to which you can send a FOIA asking for ORD sellers.

    Building a barn to live in- interesting article

    If you believe in insurance make sure it is updated regularly. A barndominium nearby burned. Structure was 66~75% destroyed. It was insured as a barn. The owner is slowly picking through the ruins trying to salvage whatever can be salvaged to recover losses. I presume the $$ lost was greater...

    Estimate of the Cost of Welding

    The local shop here would charge $30~40 if you removed it from the mower and brought it to him. I'd do it for free. Sometimes I can't find enough things to weld! ;)

    Do you have any Oil/Fluid changing time saving efficiency tips?

    On big filters & especially diesel, drilling ~1/4" hole at the low point in the filter housing and letting it drain into a pan gets rid of the weight and the mess

    Ford Jubilee - can anyone assist me with getting this to run reliably?

    Golden jubilee

    Exact same issue with my Jubilee. Run a few minutes & shut down, wait 30~60 minutes and it would start again. Ended up tracing it back to the key switch assembly. You didn't ask, but the 2nd smartest thing you can do is put electronic ignition on it.
