Was at the junk yard and stumbled across this. Sad sight, kind of pissed that I missed it when it got there. But look's like it was dead when it came to the junk yard. :mad:

That is a sad sight. Just think though, Big Joe may come back as a couple of mill-drills.

That was one of the first Taiwanese clones,oh well off to China to come back again.

Is that an IH Cub wheel weight in the background?Those are worth $75-100 each here.Also make good ballast weights for grinder stands.

Looks like 2 cub weights. One on each side of plow disk.

Looks like Big Joe might have gone through a fire. Warpage?

As mentioned, in a few years, Big Joe will rise again, Phoenix-like, from the ashes. I predict a few Chinese mill-drills or 3-in-1 machines with some voids in the castings from slight traces of burnt Big Joe.....:)

It looks like Joe was set up to do some grinding when he was pulled from service. :eek:
