    Is it normal for the well pressure tank to lose its air pocket?

    My previous house the tank had an air charger on it. They fail and then the tank gets waterlogged. Looked like this.

    I dropped them a long time ago. They still send me letters like "don't let your coverage expire" like I'm still with them. :ROFLMAO:Insurance companies are offering roadside assistance when I had it with Shelter and now USAA.

    Andrew Camarata

    At the power plant the heavy equipment mechanics had a battery box they often hauled around in a Mule. I want to say it had 2-4 batteries in and heavy jumpers. It was for jump starting any equipment. It's something he should rig up with all the vehicles he's constantly jumping. In the evening...

    A timber frame cabin memoir

    After that cold blast around Christmas he managed to get my footings poured just over a week ago with some mild weather. Two days later they got the walls formed up enough so I can still fill floor with rock. I did a good chunk of that yesterday with the tractor and hope to go back to finish...

    The day the music died.

    Beck was a monster on guitar. I'm glad I got to see him a few years ago opening for ZZ Top. Should have been the other way around.

    55 gallon plastic barrel cleaning for fuel

    I thought about a plastic barrel as the previous owner had left a couple on my place years ago but ended up getting a local metal barrel that had oil in it. One of those local guys that gets barrels from local industries and sells then on MP. I bought a new GPI EZ-8 pump plus installed a filter...

    Question about selling a tractor

    The problem with the pens is they go bad without warning. It happened to me personally at a convenience store when I gave her a $100. It showed conterfeit. I said huh? I just got that from a bank (which really means nothing) so she did another 100 I had and it also showed counterfiet. I said...

    Pull behind brush cutter

    I had a Swisher 44 rough cut bought used. I sold it a couple years later. It tended to knock the brush over and would bog down. I also had a Yamaha 700 Grizzly and it was hard to keep towing at a steady pace with a thumb throttle. You can't make tight turns with them. One thing it excelled at...

    Left my inch lb torque wrench on setting for two months. Is it ruined now?

    At work we had a PM that involved checking torque on about 200 battery connections maybe more. I always said what's the point if we never send our torque wrenches out for calibration? I got blank stares until not long before I retired they actaully started to take maintenance seriously and...

    Worst Christmas gifts

    Not Christmas but birthday...around 1999?? I was dating a woman who got me a door mat and a cordless telephone with an answering machine. She didn't like my current answering machine and the door mat made me scratch my head. 🤷‍♂️ There was something else that was also without any thought. She...

    Another backhoe question

    I had a new Kioti LB1914 and got it with a Rhino backhoe. Fun but often it wasn't up to the task. The little hoe was strong for its size but would throw the tractor around. I traded that off a few years later for a used Dk40 and not long after found a '92 580K with less than 3k hours on it. My...

    Post puller….

    That's what I was doing. I had one of those Brush Brubber units that work well on small stuff and as you said not having to wade into the tick farm to attach the grubber. The on and off tractor was getting real old.

    Used backhoes

    I would say jiggle the hoe and if the bucket flops around like a cow bell it has loose joints possibly from lack of greasing. Look for seized pins. On the older Case 580's (say before 1988) I noticed more than one had welding around the loader pivots. I recall one was a 580C and not sure if this...

    E85 Fuel

    Well that's why I made the comment about not many places carry it or I might switch to E85 in the mountains. I tend to get out into really remote areas. Now last year I was in AZ and it seemed everywhere I stopped had 87 octane.

    E85 Fuel

    Seems hardly anyone carries it. One downside to my Flex Fuel F250 is it states in the owners manual to not run below 87 octane. This becomes a problem in western states at higher altitudes that have their lowest grade 85. Often the next step is mid-grade 88 which is way higher in cost. From the...

    A timber frame cabin memoir

    I may have not mentioned I worked for my dad in my early to late teens pouring basements. We called it tar and rock but it was a non fibrous tar like coating that dad eventually found an industiral sprayer that would put it on. I did learn about Form-A-Drain a few years ago watching a video...

    A timber frame cabin memoir

    It's a walkout basement on a 15* slope or more so I'm only concerned about the back but will take precautions. I'll put tar on the buried bits and there will be drain tile to open air. The cheaper route is frame in with ripped lumber for a 10" thickness. I was leaning PT if I go that route but...

    Jobs Market isChanging

    Late to the party. I was saying this a year or two ago somewhere and it was poo-pooed by another commenter. It might have been in YT comments to a video. I think I had also said with zoom meetings you might as well outsource some of those executive jobs too.
