Safety is an important and often overlooked topic. Make safety a part of your everyday life and let others know how much you care by making their lives safer too. Let the next generation of tractor enthusiasts benefit from your experience, and maybe save a life or appendages.

My lovely bride of some 44 years loves to flea market.
On one of her foreys, she found this sign for the Tractor Shed:
The message says it all.
This is an old antique sign. I think Humble was a subsidiary of Standard of Ohio (now EXXON/Mobile.)
Take it to heart and heed the warning.
Keep on working on those Cubs.

3 barns full of Cubs of various condition
Great find Gary! Tell Johnnie to keep on shopping! (I know - that's not necessary.)
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!
Looks like you have a keeper! (Sign and Wife that is!!) I like it!!

Humble is an old Texas company but it was eventually owned by Standard Oil of New Jersey. I think the rebranding to Exxon happened in the early 70's, so the sign is at least that old. I remember seeing Humble branded gasoline in 1970 when I took a trip out to the Southwest.
Tell Johnnie, nice find. I like to flea market and have for over 30 years now. I just don't get the kind of deals that I really would like. They seem few and far between, so when they do come, it makes em sweeter
Nice thing about flea markets.. one person's junk is another one's treasure
yup.. a msg I should heed.. been using gasoline to clean stuff for yrs... guess I've been lucky, but I am careful. i'm getting better though... now I use ETHER!:)
I've never met a tractor I didn't like....but I have found some that were greatly annoying....
Nice sign, Gary! Johnnie really knows how to decorate your tractor shed.

Nice find Gary. This thread is interesting, because as a kid I heard about all of these company names while listening to my grandfather. He worked for Esso Standard Oil (and probably various other entities) from 1919 to 1955, and even into his 80's could recite a great deal of detail about the various purchases and mergers that created what is now Exxon. He worked for John D. Rockefeller Jr, as what would be called a corporate secretary today.
Here's a neat link from Wikipedia on Humble Oil:
I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!
cool find, lucky
Just call me coconut... Blonde on the inside!
I'd suggest you just stop talking and walk away lest I forget I was raised to be a lady.
Gary, that looks really good on your shop door. Great find.

Sounds like good safety advice to me!
I was asking various people what they used in their parts washer and where to get the fluid and one guy who owns a truck repair business said he didn't know where to get the parts cleaning solution, they just used diesel and gasoline mixed.
Needless to say, his advice went straight to the dump. Accident waiting to happen.
