got my wood shed filled up for the winter this past weekend.  Just got to drop the front door and tie it down so its not blowing in the wind.  The zippers for it are shot but it does help keep the snow out of blowing into the shed some what.

i dont think i do anymore.  ive been sitting here a minute trying to remember how that all went.  i expected to move all my equipment down south and get a building up then start a manufacturing company.  so id build something and share it and it didnt bother me when someone else would make themselves one, but it really burned me when some turd would clone it and start selling as their own so i kinda just quit over there. let them figure their own junk out if im not gonna get anything out of it. 

i dont even know what thread youre looking at.  got a link?

my side access door to the shed as well.  Light points toward the boiler which is a big help at night.  The strips at the bottom have small wood blocks to give them some weight to keep for blowing around all the time and I'm kinda suprised that they made it over a year without ripping off.

since i cant produce iron in house and the supply chain trainwreck is overpriced and under reliable im not gonna go into any kind of manufacturing anymore other than my own one off stuff til i die.  im happy to share the stuff i just dont think i have vids anymore.  i played around with a monetizing attempt on youtube earlier this year and see it as a waste of my time so just let that trail off.  certifiedhoarder is my stage name.. its just a bunch of random junk to feel out what might take off. 

a redneck toyota yaris heater fix is my most views. bah.  i have better things to do than pander to idiots with broken heaters. i much prefer you fine folks here with broken skitters and splitters! ;D

finally getting some of MY wood put up!  This will be for late next winter, or maybe the winter after, depends on how this one goes


 
The pile to the left has been pre split with the skid steer mounted splitter. We then do the final split and heap it till I got time to do the dreaded stacking



probably 1/4 of the pieces didn't need to be resplit. It helps that I burn 22in pieces and like some "all nighters"

I've been cutting wood the last few days. Most in the woods and some on the edge of a corn field.  Here are a few pictures just for the fun of it.

My overflow wood pile is under the porch. And for some reason the wind keeps the snow away from the north end of the house. It blows out across the drain field and out the lower drive way. Most of the snow in the drive way is on the shoulders. And the snow does not pile up in front of the garage door that much either, it faces north. I've seen the day here, that the wind would block you in and not work with you. Because of the way everything sits on the lot now, that has all changed in my favor. What little snow I get under the porch entry I sweep off with a broom. The front doorsteps area and ground usually blows down to bare gravel from wind or just 2-4" snow at most. 8)  She's all bare down to grass again here.

Back in the woods. This afternoon I went after a pretty good sized black birch that would not make good lumber but will make good firewood.


 

 

 
These rounds were so heavy that I decided to only fill the box about 3/4 full. Black birch is as dense as red oak. I forgot to take a picture of my load in the woods but remembered half way home driving through a corn field.


 
The stack of rounds is getting bigger. It's about time to get the splitter going to split this wood and stack it in the barn for next winter.


 
There is still a lot of wood on the ground in the woods but tomorrow is supposed to be rainy and windy and warm so I'll have to wait to get it. Inside work tomorrow.

   Happy cutting.....Cutter

Sublime68charger- That's a neat looking little JD, but the 78/79 Ford in the background caught my eye.  I have a fondness for that era of F series.  The only new vehicle I have ever bought was a 79 f-150.  I ran it til it rusted away in 1988.  Poor quality steel in those days and New England salt was a bad combination.  I have a 79 F-350 dump I bought 20 years ago to haul firewood that I only run in months where the roads are free of salt.  Not the same as the old f-150 but makes a good reminder of my "good old days".  I painted the midline stripe on my pickup back then.  Gave it the unique look.  Thanks for the memories and for posting the pic's.  GF

Im convinced those old hydrostatic deeres from 140 thru 400ish model i think with the sunstrand 15/70U are not capable of breaking themselves from overloading with the stock engines.  You could bolt the axles to an alignment rack, chain it down and max it out. The relief valves would protect the axle shafts and gears.  As you know they make max wheel torque at minimum swash plate angle like any hydrostatic transmission.


The more weight you pile on front and more weight you can raise up to load the drives, the more that thing will keep pulling until a relief valve opens or tire spins or it wheelies.  Its a dana truck rear with a gusseted housing so that wont bend either.  An incredible machine.


consumers are idiots to be throwing those out for the fisher price throwaway rubbish they sell today. Nothing today compares to 1970s garden tractors in terms of robustness and repairability. 


Ps- never forget to push in the tow valves if you have to tug it out.  I broke my rearend tugging it with a half cord of wood in the trailer with the dozer and forgetting the valves.  I lifted the back of the trailer and all the weight was on the tongue so the deeres drive tires couldnt skid and it snapped the bull gear teeth off.

back ground on the old 78 Ford.  72,000 orginal miles rusty but trusty.  I'm the 3rd owner bought from my Grandpa who got the truck in 1983 with 23,000 miles on it.  351M motor with auto transmission.  Every time I drive the truck I get to think of all the great trips that I got to take with my grandparents in the truck.  I have grand visions of some day getting a rust free box to put on it and a new coat of paint.  The topper is ugly on it but keeps stuff in the box nice and dry so for now the topper stay's on.

Mike Belben,  yep those 140 are tough little tractors.

and I know about the freewheeling releif on these.  I have 3 1/2 140's at the moment.
the 69 with the rear 3 point.  I have a 74 140 H1 with a tiller on the back.

in my work shop is a 69 140 H1 that is not running at the moment hoping Points/Coil/Condensor
maybe a new carb and get it running.

also up on blocks is a 74 140 H3 frame and H3 stuff,  missing motor and the hydro unit has a whole in the side of it.  long term project  I and thinking from Jim's tractor repair get a replacment engine and would like to put in a rear end from a John Deere 420 so I could have a 2 speed and locking Diff.    Or take all the H3 stuff off and put in on my other 74 140.

the darn 140 are addictive I started with just the 2 of them that came from a unlce of mine who had a collection of about 40 different gardent tractors that got auctioned off.  He only had the 2 140's on the auction and I was able to get both of them the 69 ran and had a mower deck and homemade sleeve hitch on the back for $450 and the 74 140 non running for $250 pic of my 140s with a 214 that I had been using but sold since I got the 140's

you can make an H4 by adding your H3 valve downstream of the H1 valve.  you just cant pull a handle on each valve simultaneously.  mine is an H6..  a pair of 3 stacks in series with a total system relief and a separate high pressure pump.  

if you wanna sell the broken hydro output shaft and the bull gear it meshes with let me know
