Re: What odd jobs did you do today? JIM 01/29/2023 04:33 PM
Put the foam in the pipe yesterday. Looks like it's doing the job. looks dry in the shop. Supposed to rain all week, so guess it'll get a real test.

Filled in around where the stuff comes up at the house too. Put some super thick commercial refrigerant pipe insulation on the water line first. I need to box it in to protect it all now.

Re: FOOD! Stan Bennett 01/22/2023 12:35 PM
Sonny, that and chilli is what I make about every other week. It's about the onlything I can make other that ham and beans, cornbread, and fried eggs. I make cookies once in a while but not from scratch, as I use a cake mix, raisins, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, and a dash of cinnamon and vanilla.

I'll be over with a box of crackers a spoon and napkin.

I'll keep using Flickr. I use too many different devices for the direct method any way. this way all my pics are in the same place.

Re: test JIM 01/18/2023 01:21 AM
I'm Not worried about MY pictures to be Honest. I prefer to just use Flickr because I have a pro account. My phone automatically sends the pics to Flickr and I find it much easier to cut & paste the link without doing all the resizing stuff. I'm trying to get the email notification issues fixed. Am I the only one that doesn't get notifications? The board isn't generating them for anything from what I can see. I turned email verification back on for now.

cant get bamboo to grow here! Too cold out here on the tundra I guess! --- I need to harvest another horseradish root myself!--gittin kinda low! last jar, so as soon as the ground thaws enough that I can dig,-- gotts make more. I usually do it 2 times a year, fall and spring,---keeps my supply fresh that way.
I think we are going to have to cut down a bit on some of our tomato planting area. --fewer sweet potatoes, and maybe fewer regular potatoes. ---could go more sweetcorn since its roundup ready and it grows like weeds here so plant and harvest!
The food bank will take all we can grow and take to them. We dont need much for ourselves, but have to over plant everything in order to have something!

Re: Dump trailer hoist sonny 01/13/2023 09:22 PM
Since I got the lights to work,--next project is to get the hydraulic system started. Will start with B & S 8 hp motor belt driving an old combine pump and common 2-way valve. Small res. off a combine since the one on it now only holds a gallon and it has 2-way cylinders on the hoist so oil moving both directions and once full and all air out oil level should stay the same.
I guess since they have transmission fluid in it , I will run that in the combine pump,---should work.
I will need to make a box of some sort to cover the motor to keep the weather off it. The current box is too small to hold the gas motor.

Have one of those Nut pickers. It actually works OK BUT I have so damn many Gumballs that it's quicker to rake them. My separated shoulder & blown bicep don't like raking.

Re: HammerStone Articulated Loader JIM 01/02/2023 04:16 PM
I have an 11 GPM two-stage pump for a wood splitter on my mini hoe. works great for moving things without load quick and slows down with the torque you need for heavier stuff. Definitely don't have a problem with flow second stages only two GPM but it gives me all the breaking power I need once I get a good load on it. Kind of the best of both worlds the drive on the mini hose it's own self-contained hydrostatic system so it doesn't affect mobility either
