    Tractor people are good people.

    While playing in this hobby I must say that just a mount everyone I deal with are great outstanding people ready to help.

    When I bought the fast hitch disk for my sons cub it had two broken 3/4 inch support rods.

    After checking with Case IH I found out they were no longer available.

    So to the cub forum I go asking if anyone has some.

    After a few days none have turned up so a gentleman contacted me and told me he’d make a set.

    I told him thanks and to let me k ow what I owe him.

    These showed up last week.



    He told me that he put the bill in with it but it would probably blow out during transit.

    After asking him again he just told me Merry Christmas.

    I think I’ll be sending him something though.

    What a great hobby we have with a great group of people.

    I agree whole heartedly with the sentiment.

    One of my other hobbies is amateur radio. After participating for many years in various forums and listservs I got tired - and I admit I am stereotyping here because there are many fine people in the hobby - of the number of participants who are arrogant, argumentative, trolls and cheapskates. I stay away from those outlets today and enjoy very much participating here. When I'm wrong, it gets politely pointed out and I come away educated instead of wanting to punch someone in the face.

    His craftsmanship is excellent, there doesn't seem to be even one tiny tear in the flanks of his threads. Beautiful job all around.

    I thinks he’s a bit of a perfectionist.



    They really are nice though.
