  1. Why not cancel all flights (for the public) during this lockdown quarantine period? Seems ridiculous to have cities shut down yet still have jet setters spreading this around. The whole point of lock down is to slow this spread down so our health facilities don’t get overwhelmed.

  8. This thread brings back memories. My dad passed fall of my junior year in College (Gettysburg, PA). I had a buddy a few years older than me that I knew from the Gettysburg FD. He was a "townie" as college kids called them. The townies called the kids "college pukes". I was a tweener. Anyhoo, my buddy owned a house just off campus and was gone often on his full time FD job in Maryland and he offered me one of the spare bedrooms that was substantially cheaper than living in my frat house. We both hunted and fished. Enter spring of senior year. While we had dressed and butchered dozens o

  9. Finally the time has come to put the cab the floor side down. I.e. in its normal position. The rest of old green paint was sanded off the rear wall (where I didn't blast it because of the cab was laying on its back at the blasting time) than covered with primer. The next step was a sign of light in the end of the tunnel when the roof got painted.

  12. Liebherr Press Release / March 18, 2020 In fact, it is the most powerful 4-axle crane on the market. The boom is the longest in this crane class and has extremely high lifting capacities when fully raised. This increases flexibility and saves transport costs, as this crane can tackle jobs which would normally require a 5-axle crane together with all the logistics work that involves. For example, the crane is ideal for erecting radio masts or tower cranes and also features time-tested technology in the form of VarioBase® and VarioBallast®. .

  13. Son and Snowflake daughter inlaw came over to show me their $200 Nano anti plague masks, Princess snowflake saw what I was doing and nearly puked in her new mask. 1st good event. Village Mayor and new town constable came over and the constable threw up on the mayor shoes. 2nd good event. All I was doing was prepping a dozen pigs for their diner dates. Need OD to smoke some up for me. Ended up with a bit over 400 pounds of meat so far. Here is my bacon and sausage pics. Won't show the pigs hanging around in the cold room being quiet.

  14. Found this old R setting in a field last summer/fall and the owner just now got around to calling me about it. Think it’s a R600, it has a V8 motor and the 2 stick tranny maybe late 60s early 70s. It has been 15-20 years since it ran last and it has a Lime spreader for a bed on it. I really don’t need it but would like to have it (lol) so the owner wants me to make an offer. What is it and what y’all think?

Thirty years ago me and my friend bob plumbed his store so when i go in he will take care of me. I raise chickens and i trade eggs for stuff. I have some angora goats and my girlfriend spins the cape wool into clothing she does that instead of giving Christmas presents.

  20. I’ve had good luck with the pittsburgh jacks from hb & I abuse them & that’s why I buy them, $$$$ and 3miles from me. I’d get the hb 1 & wrap a chain around it good & tight (I use all thread to get tight) & watch & be careful. Especially if you don’t use 1 much. Sure if I found a deal on a good otc I would get it. I’d rather have the cheap hyd. than the manual 1, if not using it much.

Seriously that beach looks deserted compared to spring break on a normal year I find it funny that the ones that look like they have never missed a meal are riding and not walking. There parents are probably in one of the bars Both of my children are home with me now. My daughter, the cinema major, is filming my wife’s grade school lessons, so they are both still in school

  23. In 2012 I bought a OTC 2 1/2 ton floor jack. The first use was to support the rear half of a back hoe with the hoe removed. It would not keep the unit up. Most of the weight was on the rear tires so it would roll to split the tractor. Since I only had the jack for five days they got me a new one. The new one lasted about a year and the same thing. I used it last week to support the right side of a F 100 core support to replace a bushing it would not keep the support up over a few hours to install the bushing. I have never lifted over 1500 lbs with this jack. Looking back I should got a cheap

  26. Agree. I've had my OTC since 2000 after purchasing another one repossessed from the Mac tools dealer which I didn't care for. I have the plate shown for Fuller, and Mack adapters for the TR72, T20, TR107 series and it's very stable to use. Been worth the money for me and it's done a couple dozen jobs over the years. Rolls very easily too. I had good service from that Walker jack that was given to me as a teenager. It was not worn out when I traded it to the Mac man for the replacment that I kept for a couple years before trading it in on the OTC. If the $$$ can be justified, it, (OTC

  27. I used a otc jack like the one for sale was very stable with the triplex mounted on it plus i have a finished garage floor. Were i did work i bought a copy of the otc china made it worked good changed some 8 speed trans with it. Got it off cook brothers. I have used 5 or 6 different jacks through out the years and i like the otc style the best.

  28. SVT NYHETR / March 23, 2020 Truck manufacturer Scania has sent production and logistics personnel to medical equipment company Getinge to help it rapidly increase its production of ventilators. "We need to help us," says Scania's CEO Henrik Henriksson. Scania on Monday halted production in Latin America. And on Wednesday, the truckmaker will suspend production of trucks and bises in Europe. "It's a completely new game plan," says CEO Henrik Henriksson. "We are well placed to handle this. But we have to help," he adds. "It's about Getinge needing to increas

  29. They can if you don't have a good floor. I changed a lot of Mack and Fuller transmissions with mine and never had problems but I built good adapters to bolt to the crossframe on top. Pull a tranny straight back, and drop it low before rolling it out from under the truck. Here is an OTC as I have now for sale in FL: https://cfl.craigslist.org/bfs/d/venus-heavy-duty-transmission-jack/7075289586.html Another type in Rochester, NY: https://rochester.craigslist.org/tls/d/fairport-mac-tools-transmission-jack/7071714511.html

I'd still buy it,but I'd offer 1200 or so,maybe less, I don't know where you are but scrap is in the toilet here. My scrap buyer is paying 50/ton,but is advising everyone to hold off .

  34. If they got a battery to it and got it to crank over a few times, even if it didn’t start I think that’d raise the price a bit... usually if it turns over you haven’t broken anything too bad... scrap price sounds really good for the moment, but I’d star negotiations a little lower, maybe $2000-$2500

  36. I doubt you can still order brand new R-model cabs (RD for square hood is different). Also if you would I'd expect its worth of 10 grand or more. And actually if you want to make it really nice (show quality) i.e. paint it well and to a color you like, make good rust protection and other preferrable modifications you would need to apply about a half of the above jobs to it. In fact the work didn't cost as much as you would pay for it in the US.because labour is much cheaper here. Maybe even not labout itself but you don't add taxes, business insurance and other sufficient costs which your

  39. Falling oil prices are a double-edged sword. While we all enjoy inexpensive gasoline and diesel fuel, financially sound energy companies are an essential part of a national's overall economy, and national security. As we speak, many in the U.S. are heading towards bankruptcy due to these low prices. Yes, they did need to overhaul their business models, shifting from purely "drill, drill, drill!" to generating adequate free cash flow.......and most have now accomplished that. But at these price levels, it's impossible for far too many to escape bankruptcy.

  40. Looks like a micro scale version of one of my clients operations. We just built a new building that uses carbon dioxide pits to do the deed In high school I used to have fun with the preppy, stuck up, girls by asking them out to a party and not telling them it was in the woods only accessible with 4WD Today if I was dating I would probably be screwing with the snowflakes just for fun What is going to happen when the constable see’s his first dead body.

  42. What irritated me deeply during yesterday's noon White House press briefing were several reporters who were basically being troublemakers (pricks if you like), which distracted from a good discussion on the latest developments. We have a serious situation before us, and Trump is handling it in a serious matter. These reporters were rude to the President, and likewise disrespectful to the American people. If these time-wasting reporters would rather be distractions so as to get 2 minutes of spotlight, rather than be part of the solution, they should be banned from the White House.
