    Braze is pretty strong. Vibration kill it? How much would it cost to braze again? It lasted quite a long time.

    I had a pinched nerve in my neck that I felt going down my shoulder. It kind of buzzed most of the time. Neck was sore, but not bad enough to make me think about having it worked on. I was working in and around my front end loader bucket, which I had up in the air out of the way. It slowly settles and wearing a brimmed hat I didn't notice and smashed into it at a good clip. Bent my neck back and knocked me to the ground. No more pinched nerve! When it happened I thought man, I could have done myself some serious hurt here. Once in a while you get good and lucky.

    https://www.radiatorgenie.com/radiator_genie_s/46.htm I made an attatchment for my blow gun to do this. Decided to try the store bought one. It works well. A little flimsy but so far so good. Have not even tried the water model yet, but I should. Something a person could make easily enough. My experience exactly Al. Many times over. Latest was local machine shop/welding shop owner is friend of mine. I mowed hay for him with my equipment when he was broken down. Payment never happened like it should have so he has been machining a few things and is smart enough to not charge me. So I break a part that needs welding and it is alloy steel that needs 7018 or similar. I think why don't I take it over and have him do some more restitution work. Pretty easy to match it up and see the angle it needs to be welded at. Kid that did it got the angle right, just 180* off. Are you kidding me? I cut off what was welded on the end and reversed that instead of cutting it at the break and rewelding it there. How many ways can they screw stuff up? Lots and lots.

    I remember reading about powdered milk. Seems like some rich top soil and some nitrogen fertilizer were ingredients as well.

    Happy Birthday Steve! Thanks for the wishes on mine as well. And yes, Jim, more cauli planting this year. Got the seed, soil, and flats. This is about time to get them going. Now I have to decide how many thousand to plant. Some close associates say 0 is a good number.

    Offroad, HHO, and onroad are all the same stuff around here. Used to be HHO was high sulfur. It is all low now. Just don't get caught running offroad in your truck. Not all that likely on a small truck.

    They look like they were in your area. Dutch Elm Disease took them out in the '60s. They might not have been as common as they were here. Massive amounts.

    If you can find it elsewhere it will cost about 1/2 as much. Worth looking, unless you need it right now.

    The hose is the prime suspect. Check the fittings too. Air can be sucked in without having oil leak when not running. Metal or rubber? Could be the pump or filter housing.

    I have a few nice ash trees I should harvest before they are crap. I checked the price and it is $5-600/1000 on New York state report. Thought about stockpiling some myself. I know it gets powder post in the firewood if you store it for a few years. Stig?

    Reminds me of my son using a carbide blade circular saw to cut in ridge vent on a old roof. He uses a crap blade until he gets down to one or two carbide teeth left. You wouldn't think it would cut at all. It does, surprisingly well.

    There has been a rodent problem with soy based plastic wire insulation on several brands of autos. They seem to like to chew wires anyway, the soy is tasty to boot.

    I used to reload shotgun shells a lot in the 60's and 70's. You could save a lot back then. It got so you could buy them loaded cheaper than buying the works. I did find it relaxing to get into the rythem though. Satisfying too.
