I like those! If you decide to make some to sell, put me down for one. Definately would work better than my ol' maple stick I use now!!

Nice looking stick. I wonder if you will have a problem with Case with the IH emblem on them. I had a couple of those when Rick made them.

I remember making hay, We had breakfast, Fueled, Checked oil, greased and what ever else needed doing, feed the chickens water and feed the horses tied on in the barn. Then we checked the horses in the lot as well as the beef in the other lot, and fed them if necessary. Next it was empty a wagon or two that we had not put up in the mow the night before, salt the hay good and then fold the tarps we took off the loads. Now it was time to cut, rake or stack bales on the wagons. Eventually it got to be lunch so it was b ring in what ever wagons were full, shut down and turn off the fuel lines. After lunch it was fuel, check oil and water again. After supper it was fuel snd check again. The point I make is that we never had to worry about fuel levels because when we got fed the tractors did too.

very nice.. not wanting trade secretss, but how'd you print those? They look professionally done.
I've never met a tractor I didn't like....but I have found some that were greatly annoying....

Clint your gas dip sticks look really nice, I like the multi color print rather than just the plain old black on the ones I had years ago for a MF.
Very nice and very handy item to have and with your talent you could custom print them for any occasion.
I have frequented this site many times over the years, but this is my first time posting.

Very nice Clint!! It would be neat to have one for a Super A/140 as well......although they do have much bigger tanks and wouldn't be prone to running out as easy.
