    I didn't know where to post this so here goes

    I came across an interesting new type and concept of travel trailer and I thought I would post a link to the company's website. Please note that I am not advocating for this particular trailer or the overall concept, but I did find it quite thought provoking. It seems to me that this trailer...

    Why diamond shaped repair plates?

    I have seen it mentioned here that diamond shaped plates should be used to repair cracked plates on tractors and I have seen diamond shaped plates welded onto structures. In fact, my backhoe was repaired with diamond shaped plates that were welded to the larger arm on my Case 580CK backhoe...

    Grizzly comes through! In a big way! A recall.

    I'm pretty sure a lot of DIY folks here know about Grizzly tools. Their wood and metal lathes especially. Anyway, A few months ago Grizzly issued a recall on a few of their wood lathes. Apparently the tool rest or faceplate could come apart during use with the result being human body parts drawn...

    More hearing aid stuff

    It's been less than 2 months since I got my first pair of hearing aids. I have been really surprised at how much I am hearing that I have not heard for years.

    Water in fuel questions

    I have a YM2310 tractor and have owned it for about a year and a half. I have replaced the fuel filter once and there was no evidence of water. But after reading about water damage to a newer tractor I want to make sure this doesn't happen to me. I live about 40 miles north of Seattle, as...

    Talk about quality control!

    My furnace quit working. Looking online I found a site that advertises experts who can help. Offhand I don't remember the site but I did get good advice and I think it cost me 33 bucks.

    Water heater recs please

    Well, I figure even rural folks, like me, need to heat water now and then, so posting this here is appropriate. Anyway, my 17 year old propane water heater is probably getting close to the end of its life and my wife and I figured we should replace it. Consumer Reports was no help. I was...

    When to use, or not use, the diff lock?

    I have a YM2310. Being a two wheel drive machine it is easier to lose traction. So when I need to, when I get stuck, I step on the differential lock so that both wheels are spinning. I will also use the diff lock when I am going through an area where it looks like I might get stuck. I never use...

    Just got another excellent older Lincoln welder, and a recommendation.

    I have an embarrassment of welding machines. Yesterday an old friend gave me a welder he hasn't used for over 5 years and he knew I would use it. The machine in question is a Lincoln SP-100. I already had the SP-125 Plus machine. As near as I can tell the machines are identical. I took the...

    Yanmar TM2310 oil leak and the fix

    My YM2310 is over 40 years old so of course it develops an oil leak.

    Adding power steering to my YM2310

    It's getting close folks. The machining of various parts to put the power steering cylinder retrofit cylinder is virtually all done. All that's left is drilling some holes and tapping two of them. The spool on the power steering cylinder needed beefing up. It comes stock with a slot about 5/16"...

    Hydraulic hose and fitting questions

    Spool valve help please.

When I took it apart the o-ring on the spool was damaged and there was rubber debris in the valve...
