Backing it into a tree caused the threaded link to break/ fall out?
I think I was out on the the last 3 or 4 threads and just dint realize it. It stripped a few of the threads out of the inside of the adjuster. I was still able to get it back together.

Happens to the best of us. Good thing you got it back together

Well the photos loaded backwards but anyhoo.

New dust removal system for the sandblaster and chop saw. I do love the metal walls for the ease to remove and reinstall.

Had to move one set of plugs because they will now be behind the chop saw. It’s not really an issue but these two are the GFCI’s for this wall so I need to be able to get to them easily. Dad had a thing for leaving extra wire to change outlets in the future. I will have to thank him for making it easy to move the plug down the wall.

I previously installed a round spot-mirror to the left front up-right canopy post, but really didn't like the coverage of the view of what was behind me. I removed it and installed a semi-convex mirror to the upper-center canopy support instead.

I used a small section of 1" angle-iron for a perpendicular mount.

I took a ride yesterday(beer in hand) to check it out. I'm very satisfies. (y)

Yesterday I installed a new water pump in my son’s vehicle that is used for deliveries in his business. The significance of the project is only in the fact that to acces the pump it required I lay on the floor - right where I was discovered unconscious by my son and a neighbor three months ago. It was a bit of an odd feeling lying there again. Ha. With a bit of a chuckle I wondered what would take place if my neighbor or my son happened by to see me lying in that spot.

Swapped some attachments around and reminds me that I wanted to thank Ken and Tim for recommending these hydraulic Line pressure relief tools . If you have hydraulic attachments these things are awesome tools to have around.

Installed the painted ducts onto the chop saw and sandblaster. Made the connecting hose and painted it. Was going to go outside and start digging for where the exit pipe will be but 95° and what seems like 90% humidity made me change my mind. Made the end cover instead.

Changed out the axle hardware and equalizer on my enclosed trailer. Noticed the bolts didn't look center of where they should be on the leaf springs. Means the bolts were wearing through the hangers . Even the bolts were starting to wear. I guess after 80k miles it's time.

Wow - that first pic tells a lot!

Proof that a good looking over (inspection) is well worth your time.

It's always easier fixing it at my shop than the side of the highway or Rd in the middle of nowhere with minimal tools. A 10 min inspection could save major time/money, and injury to others.

Not today, recently had to disassemble my brand new $1200 natural gas dryer and instal the LP gas jets ect. I thought it was crazy that it had to be taken apart so far. It was a $150 job from a service tech and over a week until they found time for me. There was already a long wait for the dryer and LP mod kit at a reasonable cost, so just decided to do it myself. The instructions were terrible, must have been translated to English after many other languages. All this could have been avoided with a small door on the side of the dryer to access the jet and a regulator. Anyway, the neither the house nor the clothes have caught fire after running the smoke test.....

Good for you. (y)

I feel certain that was most likely in the engineer's drawings, but the bean-counter advised against it.
How would the dealers and service techs make their money?

You have the knowledge to do the change-over yourself. Most owner don't have the ability and have to pay the price.

What the... ??? :oops:
The dust collector filter bag (all the fines that get past the cyclone) came off the bottom of the filter... Remove all restriction and blow a metric poo ton of fine exotic wood dust in the air... Enough that it set off the smoke alarm, when there was zero smoke. Made for an entertaining afternoon. Did you see the panic or rush in my step? Nope, me either. I did think as I was approaching the cloud... to hold my breath. 😶

It looked like dust but that smoke alarm threw me. That, and your nonchalant behavior... ;)
