Hunting, Fishing and Trapping / Re: WILD HOGS......(NOT THE MOVIE)
« Last post by Orbean on Yesterday at 04:14:32 AM »
That's correct, Unk.....there is no trychinosis in any of the government inspected hogs produced in the U.S.A. today.  Cooking pork roasts or chops to a slightly 'pink' degree of doneness is perfectly safe these days......juicier and better tasting, too. :drool:

Don't care what they say, I will only eat it well done.

I don't think so. The bottom cutting edge flips backwards when it hits something. Not sure what plow it is. My old fisher the whole blade would tilt forward and jump over.

My driveway and front lawn is very flat and mostly sand so there isn't much to worry about.

I just got my hands all sticky.  Can't believe I fell for that.

Great build !
You gonna put in a pressure relief/bypass in the hydraulics in case the plow hits something solid ?

Comon' it's not April 1st. It's a joke. You can see the sparks fly out just before it lights up and the two small puddles of burning fluid on the ground. I've never seen fatwood light that quick. Birch maybe. check those other links, the Altoids one is awesome.

I know I'm gullible but... :shrug:

My dad liked coffee with chicory in it------Blecchhh!   :puke:   That is some nasty schitt!

Worked with a guy from southern Louisiana aboard an aircraft carrier (CVA59) back in the early '70s. He'd get a care package of chicory coffee from home and then commandeer the coffee pot for a day. Much to the dismay of everyone else. I tried a cup once to see what the fuss was about. Your right. That is some nasty schitt.  :) I think you have to be born and raised on it to appreciate the taste.

Nice! XJ, I think you're the King of DIY'ers.  ;D

When it comes to metal anyway. I learned that cutting oil makes a huge difference in keeping drills sharp and Cobalt is the way to go!!

Now that is pretty slick.....great thinking.
Congrats
Let us know how it works.

Will do. I'm a little concerned about the mounts on the back of the bucket fatiguing the welds. I'll need to rely on the plow shoes when pushing snow to keep the stress off them. I was hoping to control height by arm cylinders but I'm not going to risk it.There is no stress on those brackets when the plow is resting on the ground, only while lifted.

Looks like you did a good job figuring that one out. 



Thank you.
