    Ford 1700 w/ loader + post augur pricing?

    If you were addressing me thank you, just did it. Must have slipped my mind when registering. If not......needed doing anyway.

    Ford 1700 w/ loader + post augur pricing?

    Bought my 1900 about 3 years ago for $8000. 4 Wheel drive, loader, and backhoe. It runs but am going through all the things that have been neglected over the years. Wanted a motor with more HP but the price would have been out of my range in this part of the country.

    Titan Subsoiler height: can my 3PH keep it above ground?

    -That's about all I was trying to say is the fitment may or may not be correct. Titan was bought by some investment firm out of Nashville and they're the ones driving the long overdue documentation with dimensions that may or may not be correct. There was nothing for reference before this...

    Titan Subsoiler height: can my 3PH keep it above ground?

    -I really dislike the kiss-n-tell type posts but with about any implement from Titan all dimensions should be considered a big "Maybe", that's why many dimensions aren't published. I worked at Titan as a contractor and my sole job was to create electronic files. This means CAD models...

    FIRE ANTS

    I was going through basic training in 1973 at Lackland AFB (near San Antonio) and walking across the base I thought the ground appeared to be moving due to heat mirage. It was a colony of fire ants battling a colony of black ants that seemed to be losing the conflict, there even appeared to be...

    Quality drill bits for metal.

    Agree with your guidelines for bit life. Also agree with your examples of curl vs. chips but it can be a little more complicated than that. It's also dependent upon material being cut and the cutting edge geometry. Non-fluted carbide drills (many types) will often only produce chips due to the...

    3-d printing parts for older tractors

    Well if the thread is that large then a printed part may well hold up to the torque needed. I just don't have a lot of faith in plastic when it's under stress of any sort, I've machined a LOT of it for various components. I could be wrong here about it and welcome the opportunity to be proven...

    3-d printing parts for older tractors

    Haven't seen your post and will not deny your results but I've seen results and failures that I cannot deny either. It's all about the application and I don't know what the OP situation is but thought the thread size would be under 5/16 and torqued as a pinch clamp on the steering. I just wanted...

    Quality drill bits for metal.

    Speed calculation is critical for the life of ANY cutter but it doesn't do much good if you can't tell the spindle speed of a hand drill or drill press. A simple "guestimation" for drill low carbon steel is to go up to the speed where the drill flutes just start to disappear. Faster than that...

    What are these old tools?

    I would hope you never need to cut new threads that large by hand but what about chasing/restoring some bunged up pipe threads? Pipe taps get large very quickly and need a lot more torque to run in because NPT are tapered. I wouldn't get rid of them if I were you but I'd be willing to buy if...

    3-d printing parts for older tractors

    A locking nut sounds like there will be some torque/stress on the plastic component. Try it if you wish but 3D printed parts from consumer printers seldom produce parts that will stand up to much stress, especially if it's threads that will be subject to stress loading/unloading cycles. Perhaps...

    Any way to weld the thin metal on tractors and attachments?

    Not a welder but had to interact with the welders when designing welding fixtures. All welding (except robotic) on all the towing/recovery vehicles for Miller Industries is done with Mig and is good enough for commercial and military vehicles. Wish I could weld like some of those guys.

    FIRE ANTS

    Might not stay long but I've always used a good strong soapy solution of Dawn liquid and water. Works on those big European/Asian hornets we sometimes get around here. If the solution doesn't start killing them inside of 10 seconds you need more Dawn liquid. Non-toxic, cheap, available...
