We had a coleman once with a Briggs on it. We put a big car muffler on it. It didn't help. It was still terrible. It was actually bolted on the rear deck of a motor home. It vibrated the entire vehicle. I bolted it down with valve springs out of a Kenworth as a cushion. It worked great...
I have almost got my shop done. I still have some more wiring to do. I am putting 4 400 watt metal halide lights. I only got on up tonight, but it is pretty bright by itself. I am wiring them up 240, so they only pull about 2 amps per light.
I still have the corner caps to put...
When I don't have anything to do and get bored. I am going to get started on the other side shed of my barn. You can build 20'x80' shed for about $2000 bucks. That's alot of room and pretty cheap for that much room. It's not that tall either so everything goes quicker.
I wanted at least a 28 footer. You can put two trucks on one. They don't fit good, but they do fit. This one is 31' total length, 27' flat with a 4' dovetail.
I didn't want a dual tandem at first, but that would be alot of weight on four tires. If you get a flat on the tandems...
Finally bought a trailer last week. I have been wanting one for a couple of years, and finally found a pretty good deal on one.
I am planning on putting either a pop up or a truck camper on the front. It just depends on what I find.
It's heavy, but it pulls great with the cruiser on...
I've already got plans for the cruiser once my shop is finished.
First thing is rebuilding my transmission.
My summer project is going to be four linking the rear and installing a new ox locker up front.
Thanks for the comments.
Finally made some progress on my shop. I got the two roll up doors up on the back wall hung and that wall has some metal hung on it. I bought three 12'x12' doors. The first door took forever, I bet I made 50 trips up and down the ladder, but the second door went alot faster.
Go get some 316L welding rods. They will weld the stainless to carbon steel no problem. 316L is the best welding rod ever. It welds super easy and makes a very pretty bead. Has a rainbow color to it when the flux chips off.
I can get you a couple of rods if the welding store...
Finally an update
I haven't posted in months. It's been the craziest time of my life. We have moved in our place. It's not finished, but we have water, power and heat.
I finally got my concrete poured for my shop. 40'x40'. It's plumbed for a toilet and shower, but just haven't got...
I finally just broke down and bought the Miller Performance series.
It was about $230.00 from my local store. I love it. It's got every possible adjustment you could ever need.
I got the American Flag with the eagle on it. It's a sweet hood.
It's nice not having to flip the...
I have bought something to go under my pipe to cushion it. I bought concrete expansion joints. They are recycled rubber and are 4" wide and 1/2" thick.
I am going to lay the pipe on top of the rubber and duct tape/zip tie every five feet or so. Then when I dump top soil into ditch with...
No water yet. I bought 1340 feet of 1" pvc pipe yesterday. The ditch is dug, but is 98% rocks. So I've got to have topsoil hauled in to cushion the pvc from the rocks. It's gonna suck. For the moment, we are hooking up the pvc and just laying it in the ditch, will fill later. It...
Thanks for all the replies. I really appreciate it.
I agree that adopted dogs make better pets. We still have four other rescued dogs. We would never dream of buying a puppy. We are definately the crazy dog people of the community.
Once again, thanks for all your concern.
We had to take our Macie Lou and have her put to sleep yesterday morning.
She was at least 15 years old. My wife picked her up as a stray 4 years ago. She was a great dog, very smart and very attached to my wife. My wife is not taking this well at all.
Macie has not been getting...
Still no luck with the new driller. He was not having a problem drilling, but he could not get the casing in the well because it kept collapsing.
He wants to try another spot, but I have to get a bulldozer to build a pad so he can get his rig backed in there. It shouldn't be a big...
My wife bought one of those a few years ago. I think it was called "The Furminator". Anyway, they work good, but the sharp edge at the bottom of the comb will dull quickly, and it loses its effectiveness.
Maybe it's just because we used it on all 3 Shepherds. I bet we had a truck load...
