    My Industrial Cabin Build

    Yeah i was thinking about mentioning that too, as it seems a lot of people don't realize it. Look at the teeth on the jaws, especially the fixed one on the end. You will see they are not straight but are angled back. You want to be pulling in that direction. In the video at one spot you had...

    ***6,000,000th Post Contest***

    Thanks for the stats. Very interesting. Do you think the drop in posting with the upgrade was real or some artifact of how things were tallied before and after the change? I think most people have seen the general decline in activity on forums over the past 10 yrs as you have noted. But they...

    PTO Top Link, is Kubota brand necessary?

    Gotcha. (y) I too have Fit Rite Top and Tilt and they have been great. Unfortunately when I finally got the kit from Brian, it exposed that the dealer had an incompetent moron assemble the 2 rear remotes and they had crossed up hoses and control handles and everything. I had to sort it out...

    You realize that one of those times you take it apart to grease it, you could just drill and tap and add zerks, right? Then you can just use the gun in the future...

    New shop under construction

    These days I would definitely use LEDs. I used T5-HO commercial fluorescents, which were recommended as the most efficient bang for the buck at the time (and because I have high enough 13' ceilings). But I was just a couple years or so ahead of the explosion in LEDs or I would have done that...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    I would look a bit more closely. These days that ground wire is often a braided feather-thin strand that can be wrapped around the power wires or sometimes even stuffed back inside the fixture. If you can't find anything, you can buy fixture ground wires that go under the typical lamp nipple...

    New problem with broom - lost hydraulics

    Back in business! Finally got the PTO subframe remounted yesterday and got the broom back on tonight and tried it out. It all lined up quite easily and I really didn't have to do any adjusting, which surprised me, but I'll take it. Seems to work fine again. After an hour of brooming off the...

    Nice! I see 2 full rows of blocking in the walls - why so much for 12' walls?

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    My preference too. The wires on light fixtures are so tiny and the space is often so small to work in that the smaller size and extra flexibility of 14 ga helps a lot. Plus nowadays with LEDs drawing so little power, a 15A circuit goes a loooong way on lights. Plus when you trip a breaker...

    Ok, NOW you are overthinking this.... It's plenty close enough for use. Go forth and torque precisely and fear not!

    Front Bumpers/Grill Guards- Lets See Em

    On my previous tractor. 3/4" 9ga expanded flattened. Before it was painted orange to match. I still haven't done one on my new one. Will probably regret that some day... In addition, I added brush guard protection to the back of my grapple which does 2 things: 1. Obviously helps stop...

    Insurance - Used Tractor

    Good point Mike. I was thinking homeowner CUTs not Ag stuff, and not sure where the line gets crossed from one to the other but I did talk to my agent about ours. But that advice still holds - talk to your agent and explain what you have...

    New problem with broom - lost hydraulics

    Fer sure. Once I get it all back together there is always a test run... Only had a little time tonight but I did pick up the correct key stock, so I was able to assemble it. Bolts are only snug right now and need to be tightened down once I am sure it is all aligned correctly, but I kind of...

    Insurance - Used Tractor

    Most tractors get automatically covered on your homeowners policy as personal property, but it makes a lot of sense to talk to them and ask if it needs some special rider or whatnot as insurance laws vary by state a lot. BUT... if it leaves your property and gets damaged, then they won't pay...

    New problem with broom - lost hydraulics

    Finally got it welded today but don't have it all back together. Having a hard time finding the full length Key stock. Need to try another Menards or two to find one that actually has it in stock... I preheated it to 200+ deg first since it has a lot of mass of cold steel. Just my basic...

    My first bike helmet, many years ago, came with a sticker for you to fill out with name, phone, emergency contact info, etc. It had a line for "Medical conditions" I thought about it for a second and wrote "I have been injured in a bicycle accident"...

    Ignore list?

    I have yet to put anyone on ignore on any of the forums I frequent. I did come REAL close on TBN with one member that was just truly abusive and obnoxious to anyone that dared to disagree with him, but it looked like he eventually got banned after his behavior - which was out of control - went...

    In a manner of speaking, you just described all of human history. And in fact you also described all of biology. The strong survive and thrive by taking from the weak. Whether it is lions, wolves, or humans, this is Darwin at it's most basic. That's life...

    12 to 18 month wait for new vehicle!!

    ^This. There is a difference, but it is irrelevant unless you are a race car driver. Nitrogen is just an easy way to get totally dry air, with no moisture in it, as the moisture causes much bigger swings in pressure over the temp range of tires on the track than totally dry air would. Other...

    Finally an update to show. I have a friend who is a machinist that was on vacation and he knows this stuff much better than me, so i waited until he got back and we took a look at it then. Plus just busy with other stuff. Well the conclusion was to cut off the old thing entirely, flip the...

    Digging 400' Trench for cable

    Interesting discussion. On the chance that you do conduit some advice is that home centers often only have 10' sticks but the contractor supply places can get 20' sticks, so half the number of joints. That helps a lot. Plus they can deliver if you don't have a long trailer. Also make sure...

    Very nice work! You sure know your way around a fab shop, even if it is the back yard! Looks like stick welding best I can tell. Is that all 6011? That's what it looks like to me on the weld close-ups I saw. I assume you've used it a while since it looked to be finished before winter, so how...

    Bare metal epoxy primer for truck frame

    Then if that is the case, they are mislabeling it as epoxy. It is a specific chemical family. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epoxy Again, no opinion on whether or not it is the right stuff, just keeping terms straight.

    Bare metal epoxy primer for truck frame

    Well, no, that is not true. While I know you have a background in autobody repair, this statement is not correct. Epoxy is a specific class of materials/chemicals that cures and crosslinks, typically by reacting with a diamine or dianhydride. There are other materials that crosslink including...
