    Refurbishing a Delta 930 Lathe

    Peter, Thank you. Worked like a charm. The one thing I needed to do was individually tie nut each line at the motor. What is obvious to me now is… the way they are tied together in the picture below is if I did not have the drum switch. You made it as simple as possible and I can’t thank...

    Refurbishing a Delta 930 Lathe

    Thanks Peter. Really appreciate the help. Got the switch wired up like you wrote. Now need to move on to connecting the power. No place to connect that makes sense to me.

    Refurbishing a Delta 930 Lathe

    I’m having a heck of a time figuring out this drum switch. Just when I think I have it, nope, nada. Has anyone connected one of these? It has to be so simple that I am really overthinking it. I have watch numerous YouTube videos and looked hundreds of wiring diagrams on Google’s image library...

    Refurbishing a Delta 930 Lathe

    I purchased this antique lathe, then found an original set of cast iron legs for it. I built the connector planks and feet out of Red Oak cut and sawn from the location where my woodshop stands now. I purchased a new motor to be trouble free.

    Storing Tractor Implements

    Make sure you clean every nook and cranny of your equipment that has been outside. Mice will love the new pole barn home after you move them indoors.

    Tractors and wood! Show your pics

    Since this thread is Tractors and Wood, I will show the tractor unloading the logs and since there are so many sawmill conversations, also showing the mill lifting it into place. Love this mill.

    Here are some picks of using the snatch block to pull up the logs. Because I had the 4x4s on the trailer, I was able to pull from underneath of the other logs. Love this setup.

    Tractors and wood! Show your pics

    I hire a portable mill to come on site or I bring wood to the mill. I bought a new trailer to haul logs to the mill and haul lumber and materials home. Here is loading logs near my house preparing to go to the mill. The log with my hand on it weighed in at 2,986lbs. That wood storage...

    Around me, along the Mid West Lower Peninsula Lake Michigan shoreline we are infested with the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid. We have personally treated the 127 Hemlock trees on our 1 acre property but there are so many others around us that will never get treated and will die within 10 years. All of...

    Noise cancelling headphones.

    I went with these. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RRDJ79H?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share The noise cancelling is active (it just works) and I can have a normal short conversation with my wife without taking them off. The Bluetooth connects to my phone to do everything thing earbuds do and more...

    LED Lights on ROPS

    I purchase a ready made kit with 20" lighter for forward and (2) 4" for rear. Came with switch, relay, wire and mounting brackets. Used the existing holes for mounting in the ROPS. Mounted the switch in the dash. I have since put a cab on the tractor and changed to alternate mode...

    LED Lights on ROPS

    Consider ones that switch to amber. The bright white light can be too much when working or working with others around the tractor.

    Dual Axle 14' Equipment Trailer

    Thanks, went from 14’ to 18’ so did not want/need the extra 2 ft for dovetail. Love the high deck for loading from the side. Will be mainly hauling logs, lumber and materials for building new house. Yes, it sold the day before I was scheduled to pick up my new trailer.

    Dual Axle 14' Equipment Trailer

    I loved that it was 14'. Nice and compact to get in and out. Could easily park taking two thru spaces at Menards. Easy in and out in Traffic and hauled everything I asked it to. Will miss this trailer, it has been good to me.

    Should I say something

    You already did the right thing. Since you don’t know for sure, casting doubt for this guy will only provide anxiety and worry every time he bids a job or uses the tractor that this time the tractor will fail him. If it was fixed his sense of security is in tact. If it was not fixed and the...

    Turf tires vs r4’s

    This is not true. The tractors ship with options for turf and are classed to support the FEL. Be sure to purchase appropriate size and class per manufacturer spec and you will be fine. As was said earlier, you could try the VersaTurf from Carlisle. I have them on my tractor and they provide...

    Crowning Gravel Roads with BB

    I can spend easily 8-10 hours in the seat grading after a heavy rain. All volunteer. My association pays for the fuel. The roads do not have a lot of crown but I just started crowning vs. just straight grading. The tractor does all right. I keep it in low gear and 4wd. The wet asphalt millings...

    Crowning Gravel Roads with BB

    Thanks! I purposely use a Box Blade because of the hills. I need to pull the fines from the base to the top of the hill. Land Plane just may not do that, not having owned or used one I can only speculate based on the design and looking at both when purchasing the BB at the Deere dealer.

    Crowning Gravel Roads with BB

    Have been maintaining about 4 miles of roads in our association for about 10 years now. I do this with a 2005 John Deere 2210 and started with a York Rake. Loud and raked a lot of rocks. I needed the local contractor to come in two or three times a year to crown but washouts from storms would...

    Help Identify JD Tiller and Front Blade

    Help Identify JD Tiller and Front Blade

    500 series are a popular model so you should not have any trouble selling them. Keep in mind that the parts from Deere are cost prohibitive. When looking for my rototiller for the 345 I explored that path and the parts to adapt were more than the tillers I was looking to buy. In order to get...

    Whole house generator

    We installed a 400AMP panel and an Automatic Transfer switch when we built in 2016. Not sure how much as it was part of the overall electrical package. The Automatic Transfer switch becomes your main breaker in this scenario. We then purchased the Generac 22kw unit from Northern Tool in 2019...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    Check your codes, I think at least ERV is required. You may be too tight and will have a sick house. Would be good to check into it. Your blower test will tell the inspector and what you need to do. It is a lot of work to put in the ducts for it after.

I have used 10 amp fuses for any of the LED lights. I use 20 amp fuses on the wipers and original cab lights. The lights I have are SMD3030 chips...
