About two weeks ago Levi came to me and told me there was a grinding noise coming from one of the front wheels of his cub.
So I jacked it up and spun the whee to figure out which one it was.
This is what I heard.

So I ordered some bearings last week and they came in today. So out to the shop I head. Man what a job. I really need a cup bearing puller. I got it though. Three hours later.
I think I found the problem.
Now it’s all back together and ready for the local Memorial Day parades this weekend and next.
It’s been way to wet to plow or disk.

Does helping a buddy out in his shop count?
If so, we used my SDS-MAX Bosch rotary hammer to drill (20) 5/8" diameter and (10) 7/8" diameter holes in his garage floor for a short two post car lift, drill press, a vise pedestal, and a manual metal bender's pedestal. We got that done in under an hour, even with two breaks for my crappy back. Then we got the 5/8" lag-shields and 7/8" WEJ-IT anchors set. After that we got his new variable speed drill press put together. We had to recruit an extra body to get the business end of the drill press on the column.
My damn back is feeling it; but it was a good day that made me smile.
In the next day or two we plan to make sure his MIG welder is working since he hasn't used it in quite a while before he has a childhood friend come up from southern New Mexico to do some welding for him.

He told me today that it runs, which is a good sign. All he has to do is finish adding the various doo-dads (e.g. handles, etc) before he's ready to use it.
It looks nice, and I didn't ask him how much or where he got it.
Today I went back over to my buddy's place and we checked out whether the Danish made Migatronic welder he got back in the early 90's works or not. Migatronic - Welding Machines and Automated Solutions
We got it working, so when a friend of his that used to weld for a living comes up from New Mexico next month, they can spend their time hot-gluing metal together instead of screwing around with the machine.
Then we yanked out an old hard drive from his computer so he destroy it with his new Rikon drill press.
Then we finished up the day with a beer.
Added a few more tools to it.
