    Show Us Today's ODDBALL Purchase,,,

    Most days you buy bread, beer,,, grease, oil, ,,, fuel,,
    but, on occasion you buy something different,,

    We want to see your Oddball Purchase,,,

    Today,, I went and picked up 5 culvert headwalls,, I found them on Craigs List,,
    The best I could calculate, they weigh about 1,800 pounds each,, I am glad he did not have six of them,,,
    the weight might have overloaded the trailer,,,






    OK, your turn, where is the pic of your "different" acquisition,,,??
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    I am going to add a culvert at the dry creek crossing where the loggers used a bridge,,
    these and a 20 foot length of pipe should make it look good.
    I was going to only get two, but, they were so cheap, I had to get all of them.
    Now, I gotta dream up another use for the other ones,,,

    Yea, I used 3 chains and 3 binders.
    I do not really think I needed any tie downs, gravity did a pretty good job of making sure they did not move,,

    I'm sure they will come in handy for something.

    Got some wax on the plastic while doing the car. Supposedly it does well at removing it, the other thing I found that is supposed to work well is creamy peanut butter but with that I would just be thinking about a sandwich or I would get hungry and try to lick it off. Eraser seemed like the safer option.

    Barbless Barb Wire

    30 years ago, a neighbor gave me a 1/4 mile spool of barbless barb wire.

    I could never find it on line, because I did not know the name it was called,,
    It is called barbless cable,,,

    https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...e?cm_vc=-10005



    I use this for everything, it is amazingly strong,, and no barbs to eat you up,,,

    When the horse pushed down the wire fence, I threaded this cable through the fence and over the posts,,
    the horse could not push the fence down after that,,



    I also use this wire to make hooks to hang ropes, extension cords,, etc,,

    Those Culvert Clearance Close Out Sales are always very hard to pass by......

    No one want's last years model Culvert. Is it a 2017 culvert or a 2018 culvert, the first thought always on everyone's minds when they are buying culverts....

    Hey, Flyweight in Louisiana is in the driveway culvert construction project this week.

    I have use for 4 of those culverts right now...........

    If you don't mind, what do those typically sell for in your area? I have no idea what they should and do cost..........
