Don't laugh, it got me done.

Things stop pretty sudden when the wobble box falls off.

Mac, I have to say that's a pretty impressive set up.
Also, the repair is brilliant 8)
Great pics.

Mac, you should patent that repair and sell it to John Deere. :D

Well done!

Who'd stick a gretol clanky lever right in the middle of the windscreen?

Oh yeah, Saint John of Deere. :thumleft:

I suppose when you've cracked the moon, getting to the next field ought to be a breeze.









Mind you, would you need a shield gas in space?? Would you have to worry about molten pool runs??

If you read the sideways label it suggests "coupling the brain's together before travelling on the road" -Mac's type of machine, Schizophrenia and all that :wink:

I concur: any repair that is done quickly, and makes the machine work safely for as long as needed is a good one.

And it looks "agricultural"

And the best part of the repair ?

I was able to use some old fine thread heads bolts I've had lying around for decades, not willing to throw them away.

If I had nuts they would have come in handy before this. Now I'll never get rid of the rest of the bucket.


That folks, is cheap.

This head is a 1970s model, lots of updates however. The replacement skid plate section had to come from Nebraska somewhere, ordered on a Friday, arrived on a Wednesday. The only one in a five state area. Do I have the balls to return it, now that my repair has garnered so much praise ?

No, no I don't.

As to the Mig welding in space. No shielding gas would be needed at all I would think. They have tried everything else in zero gravity, anyone hear if they have tried welding ? Might be hard to start a puddle.

Ever see science fiction shows where they show welding or cutting ? Seems plasma cutters and torches won't change for centuries.

Corn and beans both best we ever have had. By a long ways.

No more corn just cant sell it . Wheat very good yield (60 bus/acre) average but mildew and low protein.Oats (110/120 bus) and best price I've sold oats for in 10 years ($3.35)/bus), beans are as always good old predictable beans 40-45 bus/acre at over $10/bus . heavy rain in july/ august put everything flat on the ground then constant humidity, rain and heat made a lot of disease.

Those are some good oat yields.

You folks need some hogs to eat corn.

One of these things is not like the others :

That's how two hours left become two days.
