    Me either. Who has time to watch TV? Or, more accurately, who would spend their time watching that drivel. (all of it, not just the GOT thing)

    Actually, when I was in RB211's line of work, there wasn't much else to do on most layovers, but when its my time, no way.
    GOT is the only show I watch. I don't have cable TV. I pay for the HBO streaming service. Once GOT is finished, I have no reason to pay for it.

      Design I find that very ignorant that after that many years that the R&D would have not taken notes from the feed back from Dealers and Farmers.

      A few years back Combine Harvester Engineers from the same company were at my Farm and I suggested a couple feature that needed improvement .The head guy with a red face said the company are very reluctant to do improvements ,even thou they know it would be better.
      Accountants running the company? Costs money to redesign, plus it might cut into the parts sales. Never mind the fact that it's the kind of nonsense that ends up loosing entire customers bases over time.

      • Finally finished the root cellar project. This is a picture of it in 1977 when I bought the house:



        More recent images and work on door replacement:


        Painting and hardware:


        I had to use a rasp on the right side of the door so it would fit. So it will need a little more paint to seal that edge. But it looks good:

              Tom the wearable parts I have no problem with,there is a cost to getting the Job done.What ticks me off is there were way simpler ways of removing & installing the wear Items that they never clued in after 30 yrs of making it ass backwards.

              Example: It would like having to remove your exhaust manifold on your pick up truck to change the spark plugs.

                I just need one more tool,just one!

                  • I was glad to get that job done, but I don't think I'll really use it very much. I don't like to go into the root cellar. It probably is guarded by some big nasty spiders, and it is reminiscent of a crypt out of an old horror movie. I've thought it might be a good tornado shelter, but I'd be afraid that I could get trapped in there if the door got blocked by a big tree limb. There is a tornado watch for central MD until 3 AM - quiet before the storm right now.

                    This week I might take advantage of the bridge repairs and road closure to work on the rock wall on the shoulder and the bushes:



                    There are some ancient stone steps hidden behind the Forsythias:


                    And these brick steps also need to be cleaned up. However, there is not much reason to use them, at least when the road is open. They were probably needed 150 years ago when horse-drawn carriages would use the road. And I used the brick steps when I first bought the house and I had to park across the road.


                    This is what the house looked like when I bought it in 1977.

                      I've been doing some plumbing projects too today, but holy cow nothing like that.

                      Looks like a big project that's going into, what's it for?
                      You sure do get dog's breakfast of projects coming through the door, must help to keep the interest level up.

                      • Trying to get the chuck off my Makita DHP458, won't come off! Screw was easy, but the chuck itself refuses to move, tried all the tricks you see online but no success. I was going to take it apart to get the shaft out.









                        Got this far but got stumped by a lock ring that I don't have pliers for, I put it all back together after cleaning all the parts, just so I don't loose any parts. I will try again when I got some pliers. And relube it with new grease.

                          If the chuck is busted heat it up until the plastic parts melt off. Chuck 10mm impact hex key and use impact on the chuck. Using impact sounds nasty for the gearbox but it works..
                          Makita is using nowdays threadlock and +400% torque to mount the chucks.

                          • I tried the impact trick too, sans heat anyway.

                            • MattiJ since I got your attention and you're finnish, have you used Teknos Teknoplast HS 150 epoxy paint any? For painting machines then.
