The NY Times had a recent article toward worldwide shortages, ports closed and such-it's a very long list of factors.
 I found the letters to the editor very interesting as many of our population have become over-buyers gobbling up stuff we don't need like there's no tomorrow.
People that grabbed up covid items early on-some went to jail. Nobody I've heard of is in jail for buying up all the canning lids for re-sale at crazy prices? 
 This applies to sawmills & tractors as well as placemats for people who have closets full of them. Parts are much affected by steel and other metals plus labor that's not showing up for work or lacks the skill to hold down the jobs left waiting or simply lazy and living large off USA government bucks added to covid related unemployment checks. It's a zoo of a world we live in right now. 
One lady who was at my MIL's estate sale already owns 21 sewing machines. Many buying tractors are new land owners of baby farms if 4-5 acres qualifies? One guy I read a comment from was choosing a 65hp tractor w/cab to maintain what's basically an empty few acres of mowed area.
