Powdercoater sent me these. He blasted it and primed it. Wondering what color the top coat is, he won’t tell me.

Missed a decimal point. Big difference in sending a tap .500” deep and 5.000” deep. Yes, that’s stainless. Oops.

They are good vises. The part didn’t come out, the servo finally kicked off on the machine when the pressure got to be to high.

When I was building the Bullard vertical turret lathes the last operation was to bore the center of the chuck hole to line up fixtures. A mistake on the hand held pendant between the .001” and .010” plus how many times you pushed the button one must be aware. I used a indicator too. Just Incase I made a mistake. I seen others make a mistake on this tight tolarences hole and they ended up installing a steel ring in the bore.

Each machine we built had different CNC controllers. Some had leading zeros, trailing zeros, decimal point, no decimal point. Some controllers were marked temporary with masking tape what they were. Some had no marking. I finally wrote the whole program with it all and it ran. Much faster than waiting for the programmer to tell me what it was.

I had one CNC machine take off by itself. I was doing the head alignment and had my back to the machine when I heard the servo motor running. I turned around and the head was moving by itself. I hit the e stop on the controller and it continued by itself. I ran to the main cabinet and pulled the power lever to off it stopped. Could of been worse there was no cams on the limit switches yet. That would of been a nice crash. You had to be alert all the time.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Not everything I make is pretty, lol. I made a pony tank for this Cub a man is supposed to be coming after out of an old weedeater tank. I could only find some 1/4” air line fittings. It worked. Tractor hasn’t been cranked since last July and I put a little gas in it after charging the 6V battery and it fired right up and had good oil pressure.

Been loaded up for 5 days waiting on the wind to die down. Today was the day. Sprayed 375 gallons with remedy ultra to kill briars and small trees. I could really tell what I missed last year. The trailer was glad the water is off. Had 275 gallons in the tank on front and 100 on the back.

I been looking for a deal on a good tillage tool. Either a 7 shank fast hitch for the 140 or a 9 shank 3 point hitch for the 4630. My dad bought a couple tractors from a friend recently and ask me was I still looking for a tillage tool. I said yeah, he sold me this one for about half of what it should have been. All this one needs is some paint and new points. Happy over here!

I know this one isn't hurt. The man who had it pulled it behind a 601 Ford with 600ish original hours on it and he's been dead for 16+ years.

I’m not sure if it is or not. I found a ford decal on it but it doesn’t look original. Can’t find a tag anywhere or any small holes where one would have been.

I went down to mom and dads barn and got dads tractor with the loader and loaded the tillage tool and when I got off I saw a stream divider on the shelf. He came out talking to me and I ask him if he wanted to get rid of it, he said yeah I’m not going to use it :D

This thing has very little wear other than the points. Here’s a picture of the spring holder as well. What kind is it?
