  1. Is there any casinos that have table games with hotels near you.
  2. No signage ......

    Back in the early 80’s I was in DC Pete “49 b1b”. We were in Manawa, a small town drinking and when we left I just hung a U turn right on Main Street and suddenly the red and blue lights were behind me. I told my buddy who had a very big mouth to keep quiet and don’t get us in trouble. We were both pretty toasted and the cop walked up to my truck and said “you can’t make a U-turn on Main Street”. Before I could open my mouth, my drunken buddy tells the cop, “Officer, We were going to go up the road and turn around but the sign said, NO, U-TURN HERE, so we did.” The cop started laughing and told us to get back to Clintonville.
  3. New Year Resolutions

    You might want to check with your local insulating companies. Around here we do not put vapor barrier is in garage ceiling’s.
  4. Traction on ice and snow

    Our local county garage has a pile of sand that is mixed with salt so it doesn’t freeze up as Big Daddy said. It’s free to county residents. Lot of guys fill little feed sacks with the sand/ salt mix for weight and have it for sprinkling under the tires if needed.
  5. locking the hood on a b3b

    Move to a safer community would work.
  6. Merrry Christmas

    Merry Christmas to all. Just got my eighth grand child. Kayla had a boy yesterday. Happy new year also, Todd B
  7. I know geography makes a difference But I don’t believe you would get even $7,000 in Wisconsin. No corner windows is a huge negative in my opinion. Looks nice and solid though.
  8. low oil pressure

    Nice looking truck
  9. RAM changes

    I only get 10.5 to 11.5 on my 2011. That’s one reason I have so much respect for my dodge dealer in Shawano. Back in 2011 I went to 2 dodge dealerships and 2 Chevy dealerships (sorry). All told me I would get17 plus for mileage. The Shawano dealership said the sticker may say that but I am telling you that won’t happen. Since then I have bought 3 new trucks and my son is also waiting for number three to show up. I respect there honesty and that works both ways because the family hires my business to do most of there work on there homes. I never thought of asking what kind of mileage I should expect on the new one.
  10. RAM changes

    What will I expect for mileage on my 2018 3500 dually that’s coming any day. Usually the clean air makes me sacrifice something.
  11. Recycling?

    I had a friend who would dump it along his garage foundation. Claimed it would stop the frost from lifting his foundation in the winter.
  12. 1000 post

    When I made my last post on ID of the tool I realized that I am at 1000 post. Don't seem possible, big thanks to GTK and the support crew for this site. I have made several friends through this site and don't know what I would do without it at times. In fact I am sitting next to my mom in the ICU right now. We had to make the decision today to take her off life support. It is exactly what she wanted and I am at peace with my decision. She is in gods hands now.
  13. I have been thinking about this for years. I now have plenty of time to plan my work around it. Count me in if you’ll have me. I don’t see me hauling the semi. Way to much fuel involved.
  14. where is this heading

    A buddy of mine was going to buy a reconditioned chain saw from CPO tool store, on line. He questioned CPO about the warranty of a reconditioned tool and CPO said once you put gas in it the warranty is voided. Explain that one.
  15. anybody heard from JB Neal?

    Odds are better for snow at the BBQ than me joining the Facebook cult.
  16. Oil Leak Jack

    I know this topic has been discussed before but in my opinion harbor freight is the last tool store I would trust my to lift one of my treasures. We just had this discussion today at work, one of my crew members purchased a wire feed welder from Harbor freight. Lasted a month and is now junk. Sorry for my opinion, but I depend on my tools to last.

    You read the safety instructions?? Who does that??????
  19. Three horse power tractor

    I have worked with Amish work for 15 years. I agree with Merle how one “Community” will allow different modern things then others. The guys by me recently allowed battery operated tools that they can use at there homes or businesses. They also use cell phones that they call black boxes. The crews I hire will drive my forklift, tractor and even my golf carts. But they will not pull my truck ahead to get it out of the way. On the other hand there is a community in Iowa that still cuts there fire wood with an axe. They are not even allowed to work for someone and use there tools. The head Bishop in each community controls that.
  20. Is Craftsman comming back?

    It’s a primary tool for my business. I don’t like the price but I need a dependable work horse.
  21. Molly Time!

    You could put a sheet metal skin in front of it then build Some full extension pull out trays That you could put small containers of assorted screws nails etc.
  22. Is Craftsman comming back?

    I’m not so sure it’s greed of corporate America or the union scale that drives the cost of everything and send it overseas. My opinion union had its place years ago But GREED took over and now the end user pays for it. I just ordered a new dodge dually, $65,000. Ridiculously overpriced,
  23. I am in the market for a new work truck before the end of the year. I would like a 4x4 one ton dually crew cab with a dump box, plus a goose neck ball for towing my job trailers, of course a Dodge. I have been working with 2 local body building shops and they both are having a hard time with the dump box and a goose neck. Has anyone done this before? Thanks, Todd
  24. Photos of my B2B 4th try

    Wow 2% sales tax. I guess that’s when most people worked for a living and we didn’t need all the extra to support ones who didn’t.
