Fixed my disc's. Broke two off at the hunt club. But it was due to my ignorance. I didn't know that the end of the gang's needed an end washer/cap. I had just the axel end against the disc. Wasn't enough "meat" holding the disc on. When I first bought the disc I repaired the bearings but had zero knowledge about how the disc go back on the gang other than how they were on to start with.

I was near Agri Supply this week and picked up 4 end washers and 3 disc's. Ended up welding one that had allot of racks. Hope it holds up but I have my concerns.

Not in the shop, because it's not complete.
I installed the brakes on my new trailer before lunch.

Looks pretty straight forward. If I ever get myself a trailer and it's a single axle I will be doing the same - hopefully with your long distance help.

No problem. I'll be glad to help.(y)

I also ordered a set of black lug nuts and black center cap.
Bare lug nuts and no center caps makes a trailer look unfinished.

Did a few things last weekend...

Add this electrical outlet and breaker just above my tool box. The blank box will house a 30/50Amp 230/240v outlet after I decide which welder I want...and learn how to weld. LOL This outlet provides power to my charger station showed below along with my bluetooth stereo receiver and 8 port ethernet port which my cameras will be plugged into along with a wireless router to expand my wifi from the house. This will all need to be upgraded and thankfully there was just a thread about expanding that wifi stuff here on GTT.
Bluetooth stereo is hooked to a pair of Kicker KB6 outdoor speakers that I put up as well.

And I put a set of new Oregon blades on my Toro zero turn. Notice the size diff with the factory mulching blade. I think now though that I need to remove my mulching set as I seem to be getting missed or not completely cut areas.

@fjjd18 - Go with the 50amp outlet. Your 30 Amp welder won't complain and should you need the extra muscle after learning how to weld, you'll be glad you have it... I went from a 110v/20a welder to a 220v /50a in a few months. (And have a welding class this weekend to hopefully break the bad habits I've youtube taught my self....)

PS: if you can pull a car in there, if you sell the place the 50amp 220v circuit is a winner for electric car charging...

Tired of sweating when the misses wants her decorations out of the oven… I mean attic…,above garage. It is vented but is always sweltering hot up there. It’s not connected to the house so no heat or a/c. I had picked this fan up awhile back thinking I may use it in my workshop but never really needed it. Could tell a difference in just a few minutes. Just have to get a wire clamp for the box and it’s finished. It kicked on at 100 degrees!!

Upgraded all the lights on Johnny 3 and Johnny 4. Been meaning to do this for some time now. Also added exterior mirrors to my new to me Johnny 3.




Here are a few comparison pics I took as I was installing them.

CC, did you install the LED light assemblies on the upper cab lights or just switch out the stock bulbs? My 3 needs a lighting improvement as well and I'm looking for ideas.
These were all simple little bulb swaps.
One of my 5Ms does have the real LED cab and nose lights and the loader lights were bulb swaps.

I'm hoping to get a chance to install everything this weekend. (y)
There are three tractor shows scheduled before years end and I need the trailer ready to travel. ;) I'll post pics when I get-R-done. :)
