    Pulley drifting

    I replaced the engine on a Kemp chipper with a Horrible Freight horizontal shaft, and am having some difficulty getting the engine pulley to stay put. Any suggestions, or rules of wisdom for that problem? Just installed for the 2nd time with locktite on the setscrews and key, but wondering if...

    Snow pusher on gravel.

    All the way down, then 2 taps up seems to be the key for me. But I'm gonna put a pipe on the edge too. Or move south.

    Front snow blade, worried about tractor damage

    With a 3" cylinder you should be able to use it as a hoist in the summer. Next is to get some bracing behind the mount.

    Front snow blade, worried about tractor damage

    I'm working up one now. Bought an old Massey so I could leave the back hoe on the Kioti, and who doesn't need another tractor??

    Tractordata serial number lookup experts?

    I just picked up an industrial that I'm having trouble identifying. Serial #9AT96858 Help is greatly appreciated, I'm going cross-eyed looking for the model #. If the T is actually a 1, it would seem to be a Model 2135, but it sure looks like a T.

    3-Point Hitch  Slow 3 point - usual suspects? CK25HST

    My 3 point went from normal to snail's pace this winter. Not the control valve (unless it's obstructed). Heading out to change hyd & hst filters, wondering what else to look for? TIA.

    I pulled myself up the hill with a week or two's heat chained on the back. Not sure if it makes total sense, but it definitely is fun.. Have to weigh the advantage of not sawing in the sticker bushes, compared to dragging the tree thru the mud before cutting it up.

    I mounted up this Superwinch 8500 to help me drop some trees not on my shop. If I can get about 6 down, with no 'collateral damage', it won't owe me nuthin. :D

    don't know if this has been around, but I stumbled onto it, figured I'd share it. A Russian tractor driver refuses to give up after his vehicle gets stuck in a river. - YouTube

    Everlast Welders - Welders and Plasma Cutters by Everlast

    I have a QC-3 on the line. Seems to work good, it gets obvious pretty quick when it needs a cartridge. I was surprised how fast it cut the 3/4", figured it would be a lot slower process. Have to get positioned so you can watch the stream too, wish I had more time to get good with it.. This is a...

    Figured you guys would appreciate this one. Must be 100' in reverse, after forward for 15.. Ears plugged, radio on, didn't even feel it till the last couple. Was thinking 'something's funky with those trailer brakes'. :o

    Any issues with a clunking sound (more of a feel) while turning slow? I've been noticing it lately.. can't quite pinpoint it. Happens in 2WD and 4. At first, I thought it was in the front axle, but now I'm thinking it may be the hydro slipping and grabbing. Fluids are full, 500 hrs.

    Power Feed for Mill

    I put this on today, it's an arm-saver, but the main thing is it keeps me from having to get my butt out of the chair to crank it. Only made a few chips so far, but hours of fun figuring it out. I'm trying not to be a pain on the machinist's forum.. :laughing: Round column mills have the...

    new mill pics

    Picked up my new mill from the truck terminal friday night. Yesterday was spent getting it on it's stand and rolling it thru the maze to the spot in the back of my shop. Today will be de-greasing and powering it up. I've been loading up on tools for it, while it was back ordered, so I have...

    How do you set the snake oil knob?

    I keep wondering about the high end welders and their control features like high speed pulse, and wave form, and can't help thinking that it's snake-oil... If something is happening to the arc, at a rate that's faster than the weldor can react to it, how is it different than just turning down...

    Notch Master

    Tried this out yesterday, great tool.. first couple cuts here to make legs for a tripod to hold it. I set it on 50*, the max, and cut the other end 40* flat on the bandsaw for the feet.

    4x6 Bandsaw Cut Speed

    What's an approx. guesstimate for how long it should take to get thru 2" sched. 40? Mine must be over 2 min., 1 min. for 1" square tube.. Time for a blade change? I've had the thing so long I don't remember how fast it was when it was new.

    Dessicant Water Filters

    Can you dry them out, or is it strictly a toss'em? I put in a QC 3 when I got my plasma cutter, a couple weekends ago, and it's already indicating 'replace'. I put a water separator before it, at the end of 50' of hose, and I haven't seen a drop come out of that yet.

    5' brush hog blade came off

    I was hogging the fields at my folks place yesterday, chomping down on some bushes, and I guess it plucked the cotter pin out of the nut. The tapered spline got slightly chewed up, but not too bad. Filed a little and put it back on with a nail in place of the cotter pin. I guess I got lucky.
