    Formula One starts this weekend, am I the only fan?

    I’m really hoping that the combination of Danny Ric and the return to Mercedes power means some podiums for McLaren next year.

    Tractor hydraulic question

    So the spool should be physically connected to the lever you use to lift the 3pt with on a tractor that old I think. I wouldn't think it would be electronically activated on that tractor. I could be way wrong about that though since I'm not really an old tractor guy. You can find that spool by...

    Tractor hydraulic question

    That’s also making the assumption there is only one pump on the tractor. Now if we’re talking about a sort of modern row crow or 4wd that goes out the window. If it was me based on the floppy cylinder I’d put my money on needing to rebuild that first.

    With this one it’s for structural reasons. Once I got it round I found a bunch of splits and the pith was pretty sketchy.

    I am filling in a rotten section with epoxy resin. I tried taping it up and it leaked so I wrapped it in a bag and hopefully that seals up. Probably going to take two or three pours to get it done.

    This is going to epic. Not sure yet if it’s an epic failure or epic success but it’s going to be epic.

    Tractor hydraulic question

    Since this is my day job I suppose I can give my 2 cents worth. If it has power steering and you can turn the wheels your pump is probably fine. My guess is you have a stuck spool on the control or your cylinder needs rebuilt.

    You know I was pretty content waiting for the season and things were good. Now I am freaking out because it's still 6 effing weeks away.

    I made a trip to the woodsmith store today with the wife. I almost had her talked into letting me buy a spalted maple slab to build a coffee table with.

    I want a track saw but I don't really break down that much plywood. I do really want a domino though.

    Woodworkers Thread

    For what it's work where I used to work had an accident with an older Powermatic saw. They had a bunch of them because at one time they were owned by the same parent company in the 70's and 80's. After that accident they sold all of them and replaced them with Sawstop saws because that one...

    I finished up another bowl yesterday. Spalted Cherry finished with Mylands High Build Friction Polish.

    Probably the worst kept secret in the paddock.
