    These are what the UPS counter guys put on my boxes of ammo along with a shipping label after weighing and declaring the charge. They have replaced the orange "ORM-D" stickerss of the past. ("other regulated matl's - domestic") Sorry for pic size, just how it happened.

    Big Barn’s Retirement Farm Shop

    1,000 k capacity (~1 ton), ~ $100. Mine works great, has nice feature set. Limited use only for things that can be slung or hung. :sneaky: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077Q7HVZ7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 696087

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    UPS man told me otherwise just weeks ago over the counter and gave me a strip of b & w stickers to put on boxes myself next time I ship ammo and/or primers. (I'd lamented on my 2nd visit in weeks and the fella said ~9 of 10 shipments lately were ammo etc like mine, too) USPS won't ship ammo...

    4520R exhaust adequate for pest erradication?

    Dry ice has been used by City of New York for rat reduction. Like exhaust or gas cartridges it works better in dense less porous soils. Place bits in several holes and monitor others with a shotgun in hand.

    If Baldwin was properly educated in safe gun handling he would/should have checked/cleared/verified what was in it. Being told it was 'cold' should have meant nothing to him and IMO he should have looked it over with full knowledge and due respect. As an anti-gunner would he not regard it as a...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    Made my Axis trigger work better than the $100 Timneys in my .223 & .243 Sav 10s with MCarbo's deluxe trigger kit. It's $20 US and reduces pull to ~3-4 lbs. A friend liked it so well he had me do his Axis .350 Legend too. btw, I bought one Sav 10 with camo poly stock and put a camo Hogue on the...

    Pocket Gopher Control

    Gas cartridges & vehicle exhaust don't do well in dry porous soils because of rapid dissipation. If soil is more dense, putting dry ice in entrances works for most all burrowing rodents. For nocturnally active pests place it during mornings and get 'em while they're sleeping. If pets won't nose...

    Identify 1 cyl garden tractor with sickle bar & reel mowers, chain drive

    I find the ACN engine to be 14.9 cu inches. (~250 cc). The distributor thingy is mounted where the magneto would be. It has a sister model the BKN with 7/8" vs 5/8" stroke at 17.8 cu in. Wisconsin hp ratings are 6 and 7 respectively at 3600 rpm per OEM instruction book and parts list. WISCONSIN...

    Identify 1 cyl garden tractor with sickle bar & reel mowers, chain drive

    Found this Bready (561?) while searching. I suspect it's a lower hp model with Clinton power. Ours has separate starter and alternator while this one has an apparent combo. (like my EZ-GO w/Robin) Our gen is in same position but the Wisconsin has a geared starter to the flywheel sitting above...

    Identify 1 cyl garden tractor with sickle bar & reel mowers, chain drive

    Just talked to owner. Sickle bar label says Bready and hood/grill shape/contour matches their line vs Speedex. Haven't seen either brand (+ Strongland) with the double sheave on the drive side of the engine. Chain guards are a quick identifier, and close on several sites but no cigar. The...

    Opinion on previous owner's rationale for welding 3PH lever

    Could a guy just remove and reassemble the stop onto the other side of the stick? Add star-type lock-washers above and below the quadrant and reef 'er down. btw, if the hoe is never off and the lever wont be moved by new owner, after a few rains or washes the stop might rust in place. [BTDT]...

    Is backing into a tree covered under warranty? IIRC OP said initial breaking didn't happen during normal use, but while maneuvering. I back into stiff often enough to bend draft arms and tho' they can be just be straightened tines are less work to R & R.

    The color of tractors

    I learned that everyone's color preference isn't necessarily rooted in their earliest experience(s). Without an early attachment to one in particular we seem to be easily influenced by other factors as we age. btw, I went against early influence and married a blond. And while our son married a...

    Front brake hanging up on rav 4?

    As kenmac said. ^^ Rubber lines have inner and outer layers. An inner can leak and pressure between the outer can pinch off return flow. The higher pressure of applying is enough more than what it takes for the caliper to drag just enough. This can burn pads in weeks w/o noticing a pull or...

    Front end loader pin replacement

    Likely no replaceable bushings in any part of a FEL. A piloted reamer is all but a necessity to assure alignment (square) if done on the machine vs say plopped onto a milling table of adequate size. Consider what's called 'stress proof' for pins as seen here at McMaster, but check your local...

    Engine in this guy is a Wisconsin single. I'm guessing it's 8 or 10 HP despite attachments. Belt drive to the transmission is on the left, & chain drive to the rears on the right under guards. Included are front blade and 'long-arm' mount, reel mower, and side-mount sickle bar. All look to be...

    Landscape rake tine quality

    They're springs above all else, alloy and heat treat that welding on may cause to become uneven and lose uniform flexing properties. I suggest that any +/- quality expected might take a back seat to fit first, then cost. You'd only need to try a few of each to see if you liked one or another...

    The color of tractors

    I agree that early imprinting can influence color preference when selecting vehicles. My favorite pedal and motor bikes (Raleigh, Schwinn, H-D) and a few others were bot new and I chose the colors. I don't know where it all began with me. :sneaky: 639808

    Elevation = rough start up..?

    I agree that diesels are easy to flood above sea level and suggest an under-recognized cause is a sticky butterfly in the intake tract. Throttle position sensor or someone haveing tinkered with idle mixture screws can also impair a proper stoichiometric air/fuel ratio & glow plugs might not fire...

    I've told the story before. Early '60s and a neighbor had a black '49 Buick work beater with an odd rumble that one dog would follow down our block barking and nipping at it as he drive home.
