Had a friend with mailbox problems. He made one of 8 inch schedule 80 pipe after he got tired of replacing the ones destroyed with M80's. After that the kids used to hit it with a car. Needless to say burried 3 feet in concrete the car suffered. Bob Murowski won that round.

Looks like the mailbox idea might be delayed a bit, on account that we now have 4" or more of snow and expecting more from the hurricanes :cry: it's a bit too early, we need to get the wood cut/split ETC. I will post pics when it's done 8)

with that bean drum on there, the whole unit comes close to 125-150lbs, i can barely mover it. (especially if the back is out). my family has used it going on 25 years now i would guess, only knocked over once, we had to call a tow truck for teh guy, left his vehicle helpless :lol:

Cool, that is pretty neat, and it looks really good. I would like to look at it longer but i keep getting pop-ups and it starts to slow down the computer :?: but that's really neat, i will keep that in mind, Jostev

Enable your popup blocker in IE and you should be set to go. I get no pop ups at all... It is available in the MSN toolbar and the Google Toolbar.

Run Microsoft Anti-Sypyware Beta, Spy-Bot Search and Destroy, AdAwareSE on a regular basis and a lot of that stuff disappears. Some of the ads are based on the data-miners that usually come when visiting certain pages...

I like Spython as well which is part of Iolo's System Mechanic Professional 5.5b

Thanks Rudi, i haven't run the Ad Aware and stuff in a while, and that was a good reminder, I will try the link in a min after I'm done typing this. Thanks again, Jostev

Ok, I have finally got my parents to buy the mailbox and I have started to paint it. Now I need the decals for it, I was wondering if anybody had a decal of the "FARMALL" that they could scan for me :?: I was thinking of doing what videodoc did. If not, i will try to find some and see if I can't Make them bigger and stuff, I just think that if I do it that way it won't come out that good, but a real full sized scan might come out better :?: Thanks for any help, if you do have one if you could e-mail it to me? thanks again, Jostev

jostev go to the wiconsin historical society, search farmall. it will bring up a bunch of stuff, just browse through there, and see what it is you want, copy and paste.

cool, thanks, I have been there a couple of times but I wasn't looking for decals, so I probably will find something. Thanks for the idea, Jostev
