I think that's normal when buying through e-bay, maybe? I had the same situation with a choke cable I bought that was 4" too short. Nothing wrong with the cable I'll use on something else.

Didn't thay state the dimensions for that knife? I almost bought one a while ago.

Well, it's done. I ordered the tabs on the 9th and they showed up the 19th. I'm a little sore about that the place is 1.5 hour drive to the east. I could have easily driven out and picked them up. Twice I was told they shipped when they did not. When I called the buck was passed to a hired hand in charge of shipping...

So if you look at the tab welded to the tie rod you'll see the hole is NOT 1" as that pin IS. It is going to wear the hell out of the hole in the tab more than the pin. I put spacers on the jaw of the ram on both ends to keep any side play to a minimum.

I think I need to go with 3/8" lines. The 1/4" are limiting it. This is about as fast as it will steer.

I bought a Ka-Bar Remora thinking I was ordering a larger neck knife.  When it got here it looked like a prize from$1.00 bubble gum machine.  I contacted them and they said yes, I can return it but they charge a $2.50 restocking fee.  Hmmmm.  Next I went to print the return label and the said if I used it, they would charge an additional $7.50.  $10.00 to return a $20.00 knife.  UNITED OUTDOORS.  Be very careful dealing with these people.

As an engineer, I was taught if something looked fishy, challenge the data, if the data looks ok, challenge the math, if the math looks ok, challenge the interpretation, if the interpretation was wrong, do your own and let your peers have at it.  Yes, almost everything can be questioned but we often have no better information with which to challenge it.  But if we assume everything written in history books is correct, we will never make progress toward the real truth.

I used to drive for H.O. Wolding out of Amherst WI. I delivered to and shopped at Menards. Awesome place.

Our Real Deals is a everything is a dollar store and they too have buy outs. That's where I got all the camo ripstop. 40 yards of 68" wide untreated and 18 yards of silpoly. It was mixed in with a bunch of rolls by mistake I think.

A few weeks ago we picked up a queen size sir mattress with built in air pump for $39 at Aldi's. It's $99 at walmart. We plan on using it in our PMF camper. That'll be an interesting thread!!! ;D

Well that attitude about historical writings would invalidate all historical data passed down since the Republic was founded.  While the subject of this thread is trivial, the position that since we cannot interview them so disregard what they said, would apply to everything.  Should we not believe what historians who are dead wrote about events at the Alamo?  At Gettysburg?  At Sante Fe in 1847?  There are sharply differing accounts on many historical subjects.

One thing I have noticed at Aldi's....a lot of their non grocery items are ''specials"....and not in the store all the time.
Like the get a batch and when sold out....that it for a while.
That was  the deal with the genset.

Ragsdale cites his sources for his research, both in the text and in footnotes.....but you're right, this is foggy territory at best.  That's the trouble with things like this.....the most common, everyday and mundane items that were used the most often were hardly mentioned in diaries and journals because they didn't consider it important or believed that everyone knew what they were talking about anyway, so why repeat it? :shrug: :deadhorse:
