    • A guy who worked at Schneiders meat in the wiener room gave some wise advice "under no circumstances eat the all beef wieners, even we dont know what the filler is"...
      You need pig in wieners...

            ha! I worked in a turkey factory for a summer or two when I was a teenager and have not eaten anything made from turkey mince since. Might be fine from early in a shift, but at the end if they need to fill that hopper pretty much anything they can find from any part of the factory is going in there.

              Maybe that's where the "good source of protein" comes from. That wonderful blended flavor from mince products does beg to question, where do all of those great flavors come from!

              Researchers at Oxford University tested six commercially available types of insects(albeit not your usual grocery store fare) and found that across all six options, a 100 grams of bugs (roughly 200 crickets) is actually packed with more protein, energy, calcium and vitamins than a 100 gram serving of chicken, steak, ...

                While I dunno what this all has to do with the basic purpose of the forum, I will go along here and mention that back a few years, before everyone was a millionaire*, folks used to eat the whole hog..... trotters, chitlin's, head cheese, etc. I guess we've gotten too good to eat that anymore.

                *yes, we live like millionaires compared to out west even in the 1920s, only 90 some years ago.

                  Bridgeports are quite top heavy, I don't know how steep your ramps will be BUT extreme caution is advised, that sucker could tip forward going down the ramps. A come a long to a high point would be a real wise idea to prevent any bad surprises.

                  • This was not a job I would recommend done alone. I started late, about 1:PM, and it was nearly 9:PM when the mill was finally on the driveway. I'm not a kid anymore so I'm slow. Especially when getting up and down from the trailer several dozen times to adjust the come a longs a few inches at a time. Also had to stop forward progress a few times when the mill veered off course and had to be re aligned. The tilt of the trailer was controlled by a floor jack until the frame ( ramp rack) bottomed out on the driveway. Going slow and steady took a lot of time, but it went safely with no bumps or bruises. I really did not want to let it stay outside another night, but I was worn out, so covered it back up and called it a day. The final pic was taken this morning. Today it goes into the garage.

                        • Today I decided to replace the rotten door on an ancient root cellar behind my house. I replaced the frame with PT lumber probably 15-20 years ago, but the door was still original. The root cellar was there, and already old, when I bought the property in 1977. It was built by the man I bought it from, and he said he built it in the 1950s when he lived there. I think it already contained the wire fencing and wrought iron railing when I bought the place, but I think I put the 5 gallon buckets in there. I'm not sure what's in them - probably sand or concrete/mortar mix. I built the door from some old 1x6 and 1x8 boards that I salvaged from discarded crates, so it's only #3 grade. I cleaned up the hinges and door handle, and painterd them black. I was going to paint the door with some white paint I've had for a while, but it had been outside, and did not fare well after being frozen a few times.



                          By now it was getting near dark, so I decided to use the remaining daylight (and my energy) to clean up more of the hill next to the house.





                          It will look a lot better in full daylight

                            Thanks 754, I appreciate your concern. I used 1" pipes for rollers and laid the same 1/4" plates on the washed gravel surface of the driveway for the pipes to roll on. It is now parked inside the garage, and I'm not going to look at it again for at least a few days.

                              Not sure it's something I'd have wanted to do alone just in case anything happened. Glad it went safely. I only have experience of relatively light machines (15 stone lathe) but it's given me a taste of what's involved in something like that. Took three of us to lift the lathe by the way. Two could have managed the vertical lift but the swing onto the bench with any useful hold points at the head end covered in thin sheet boxing, made it more 'interesting'.

                              Well, I guess it's going to be a fairly non-productive day now. Got my beer delivery in (hey, they were offering 30% off and free delivery, it'd have been rude to decline!) and it's been on a van all night so it's nicely chilled too Wasn't going to open anything until tonight but as I was unloading them, the rim of one can managed to pull the ring on another*......so it was use it or lose it. So it's 11am and I'm sitting at my desk with a beer....only a light one at 9.5% mind....good job I work for myself!

                              *Yeah, I know this sounds unlikely but it's the honest truth.
