    Eye, Ear, Nose and ....

    I just came in from mowing, my friend proceeded to get quite a laugh out of my protective apparel. He of the cab tractor brethren, and non-compact at that. Anyway, he commented that I seem to be extreme in my contraptions. I don't consider it extreme at all, wearing full googles, with a nose and...

    Both gauges on my 2003 RTV, temp and fuel appear to not be working. Is there a shared electrical part between them that would cause this issue? Or am I looking at two separate issues here?

    Milk House renovation

    I am planning to turn my milk house into more usable space. The first step was gutting the pipes and equipment out of it. The inside walls are a concrete type plaster on top of some kind of wire mesh. The floors are poured concrete. Circa 1920. For the floors, I was thinking about a vapor...

    Truncation issue reading and quoting

    I have seen this behavior twice now, and I managed to get a sample of it. I thought I had been reading everyone's postings, completely. But somehow in the reading pane I have lost the last few lines of posts. An example is post number 55148 under the Good Morning thread. You will see what...

    Air Compressor - Paint Pot

    I am looking for recommendations on a paint pot. I need at least 2 gallons. I had thought that these things would be readily available, but it seems that they are specialty tools with only a few manufacturers. The on-line reviews on a few have been, scary. It would operate under 60PSI, so it is...

    We all have them, they work well, sometimes.... So it is that time of year for me again. My gutters are really nothing more than leaf catchers this time of year. I really do not like ladders and getting up two stories is getting to be no fun. I do have a good drainage system around the entire...

    Honda Mower Excessive vibration

    Hit a metal pipe with my push mower. It was enough to stop the engine, the pipe was NOT wedged under the deck. Upon inspection, the blades looked OK. They are mulching blades, lots of curves and whatnot. I started the engine backup, but I have got as serious vibration in the mower now. How...

    Some people are bold...

    Supply your own work in place of bold. On top of everything else over the past few months, we had a early night visitor. Someone pulls up the driveway, which is very long, stops by the house, gets out and starts shining a flash light around. I see him, and start making my way to the back...

    Poulan sprocket not engaging spring?

    My rope broke. I had to open it up to clean it up. But for some odd reason, when I put the pull rope assembly back on the sprocket it turns a few times, but the spring gives way. I have examined the assemply and it looks ok. The spring is still tight. I am turning it clock-wise. It's like it is...

    Man, Some people just don't get it. So I am doing a lot of concrete work. My driveway has a culvert pipe about 1/2 down. The grass is 4 feet tall in the pasture. I have mowed a path and lots of other trucks have made a path to the worksites. I come home last night and see mud coming up the...

    Skunks and scopes!

    Here you go. I have destroyed some out buildings on my property. They were chicken coops. Well, I took what was left of the chicken laying stations and placed them out in the field, so as not to get run over when the building came down. As luck would have it, I had my brand new Savage .17HMR...

    B7800 fan belt replacement - Difficult?

    Is this something I can do in an hour? I would probably have to loosen the alternator to get it off? I managed to see a fray point, the unit has over 600 hours, so I do think it is time anyway. I had to stop in the field and clean up the air intakes, so I noticed it. Did not see it on...

    Incredible as it may seem, we seem to be in a serious dry spell. In my neck of the woods in Northern VA. I was dressing up my back pasture with the bush hog last night. I actually made a round trip through some areas of low ground that are normally mud bogs in the spring. I use to cut them in...

    Well, These past few months I have made a lot of progress on the inside of our old dairy barn. Unfortunate over the years, we have had a lot of Barn Swallows make it their hatchery. While I do agree and like that they keep the insect population under control, I just cannot afford the time of...

    What was this?

    Pond from hot tub

    So my hot tub, kind of sprung some leaks in a lot of the return tubing. It is around 15 years old. I was thinking about sitting it in the ground and making a deep pool out of it. I'd re-route re-do the major intake and return, feed it to where a water fall would feed the "pond". I'd line it...
