Not sure pricey is the word for it.Those are the older Petersen ones before they sold out to Irwin.
Man those things got pricey.
yeah , for awhile now . now I buy a brand called sure grip , they are made in Spain but they supply snap-on with their locking pliers . very nice quality without the truck prices.These 24sps say the brand is Vise-grip which I thought Irwin owned but they are made in China. Did Irwin staart having them made ovwr there?
We had a great year! What we had for tomatoes was opposite for our carrots. Normally we have a bumper crop of carrots - we had five total across two plantings. Luckily some friends had a bumper crop of carrots, so we traded maters for carrots.mrbeef, 250 pounds from 8 plants??? Wow! Sounds like you had a heck of a year for gardening! And a diesel air compressor for $80, man, there sure are some good deals out there!
dave_r, if International Apple Muffin day becomes more regular, that sounds delicious. Hopefully not followed by International Dentist Visit Day
Steve, how is your wife doing this morning? I hope she is having a good recovery so far.
Those old tool boxes always have great stories to tell.@wachuko that box has some serious history , I would mask over the markings myself and just leave them for nostalgia . looks like a machinist box ?
@mrbeef I love listers , you stole that engine ... we have lots of amish around us and they use them for sawmills and irrigation . I'd like to get my hands on one but they are usually flat worn out . nice raised beds too . what variety of tomatoes do you grow ? beefsteak ? ( I'm guessing because of your username )
Sounds like everything is turning ok.Long night. Sundowning patient on the wing jumping up every 5 mins setting off the bed alarm. I wrapped my pillow around my head to drown out the noise at 0230 and slept till lab draw at 0500. Home now to check on the dog. She's fine and sitting in her bed on a heated corn bag.
The wife is fine. Doc will want lab results before discharge. Gonna shower and head back in.

Back is 2001-2002 when I was buying my first tools. I remember paying $34.95 for these Klein Linemans pliers. Almost 20 years later I am still using them, used them tonight to make a cat excluder device for someJust had the conversation with my wife and she only remotely understands that once you pack a pair of lineman pliers for 5 , 10 ,15 , 20 years that you can't get that wear or patina or spirit , smoothness and how upsetting it would be to lose i personally would rather break and let them have a viking funeral , this is another reason I value you fellows only to lay them down to rust in less than a week .
It's called a front plow hitch. When I was working on the bucket for my 3240 someone said something that made sense to me on definitions. "If it can "load" material into something then it's a loader. If it can only dump on the ground then it's a scoop."Yesterday I finalized the assembly of my tractor rear loader by bolting all pieces together and installing the hydraulic hoses.

Next task is to modify the original front accessory mount for snowplow. It is not actually a FEL, so how should I call it?

I have found out that there have been at least three slightly different variants of the basically same part with differences in longitudinal arm length and turning cylinder rear mount. I shortened the arm by 125 mm (5") to get it more nimble in confined areas. The plow still has good clearance to the front wheels at all positions. Cylinder rear mount needed to be repositioned anyways since I replaced the beyond-feasible-repair original odd length cylinder with a COTS 40 mm (about 1-9/16") diameter / 150 mm (6") stroke cylinder.
I was also considering to replace the lift cylinder to get more lifting height, but decided to keep it stock as long as the original cylinder is still OK.
Thank you! Then I do have a rear loader and a front hitch. This far I have used front hitch only for the snowplow, but if I find suitable small and affordable flail mower, which is or can be modified hydraulically driven, then it would be mounted on front hitch as well.It's called a front plow hitch.

Thats kind of hard to do in the Palomino Puma. Getting close to furnace weather though. Time to start planning and finding warmer weather.One of the most comfortable spots in my 1971 strato is to lay in bed and prop your feet up on the stove top now thats 70s shag task it . Its been another quality day in the great ky .
She wouldn't like that one. This one she would since it looks more like me.
