Sawing At A Junkyard
« on: December 14, 2005, 12:08:26 AM »
   Portable Millers-----DON'T EVER SAW AT A JUNKYARD!!!!!!!!!!! I started yestreday ,to saw some logs that a flim flam logger left. Can't git nuthin done. There is a crew from the local salvage yard there cleaning up,and you ought ta see some of the stuff they're gonna cut up for scrap.So far,I've rescued a good 2 ton GMC (to put the Big Stick ) loader that I got last year on,two trailers,several gearboxes,a hydraulic pump with two motors,and assorted plumbing(drive for a green chain),a Yates American shaper,and an old very heavy solid cast iron single surface planer with square head.Rigged wif pto drive,so I can run it wif one of my classic Allis Chalmers tractors.There's also part of I think a Frick sawmill there too. Have only seen the carriage,and the cable drum.A BIG metal lathe,must be 20 in swing,4 cable cranes in various ststes of disrepair. 
   The saw bill won't pay for all the good stuff that's there. Owner said late this afternoon that tomorrow,he would show me some really good stuff.Oh well. :( :( ;D

Man,
There ain't nothing like a good junk yard.  As a matter of fact our local junk man is crushing stuff now. He is getting old and is slowing down.  If I can get this Honda (sawmill engine) running I suspect I'll go see whats left.  Please post photos, so we can dule.

 :D :D :D :D Nothing like a junkyard to warm a scrounger's heart. I got a Warn 12000 lb winch off a heli-logging grapple that was headed for the scrap pile. They had converted it to 24 volts so there was a brand new 12 volt motor for it, never used. Too heavy for my pickup so I gave it to my BIL for Christmas that year. You should have seen the grin on his face. I also got a 99 channel radio. Don't know what I am going to do with it

Our favorite junk yard is called Grandpas Garage.

Last time we were there we gathered up our treasures and asked him what we owed for what was in the truck bed. He said "Nothing, just bring me some scrap sometime".

My kind of business transaction!!

Around here we don't call it the junkyard.....  We call it Seagull Mall...  Somedays I am easier to get a hold of there rather than at home.  My garage is full of all kinds of treasures from the mall.  I even got a Poulan chainsaw from there once and with a little tinkering with the carb settings and flushing out the fuel tank it was running and still is.  I use that saw on the snowmobile when we go out trail riding trails that have deadfalls across them.   :o :o

Where do you live?  I wanna visit!  Most of the places in South Dakota have old farm machinery....not the goodies like you're talking about!
