    My wife and I were talking about the little triangle windows the other day, they were for smokers weren't they?

    My sons 1965 J.D. mower has a cigarette lighter on it, as does my dads 1970 J.D. tractor he bought new.

    I think that is illegal in 51 states now :rolleyes:

    That's what I wanted to do, but my wife would be disappointed. I am the guy who loves much different and unique. My wife is the girl who likes it just a bit unique, so bow ties would be a hard no from her. Biscuits and glue with a small skirt underneath.

    They were not designed specifically for smokers, they we designed to provide air flow to driver and passenger back before there was air conditioners in vehicles.

    My wife said she wanted to plant some apple trees, I had a honeycrisp apple for breakfast. Hopefully 8 trees will be enough for her :anonymous:

    Good morning guys and Mollie :hattip: Hope it’s a great Thursday for you.

    I got the truck back from the dealership yesterday, complete new master cylinder and hydro solenoid installed. I’m glad to have this over.

    Immediate observations getting in the truck, brake pedal seems about 1/2” higher from the floor per my foot memory as I move over to it from the gas pedal. The modulation feels way different than it did before I noticed the leak, much firmer feel to the pedal. I don’t know if that’s for real or just my mind playing tricks on me. I now wonder how long the problem was actually going on before I saw signs.

    That’s been in the back of my mind. I’ve avoided driving it and used my old Chevy for running around.

    Glad it is fixed. Sorry that it happened at all. Disappointed that neither the dealer or Toyota stepped up to the plate to do a better job of covering all or more of the repair.

    It was out of warranty by time so I’m not surprised I had to pay something. I agree it could have been better. At least this dealer worked with me to help get it partially covered instead of blowing me off like my original dealer did.

    I understand but considering how low the overall mileage was, how close your truck was to when the warranty expired and the nature of the failure I think they should have covered the entire repair or a greater percentage of it. This is simply a part that should not have failed at that amount of mileage. To me it was clearly a defective part in some way and should have been covered but some help is better than none at all.

    I’ve got a similar project, but sinker red cypress and it’s a mantle… so, narrower but a bit longer (116”x28”). Not really started yet as the wood is still in the moisture reduction phase.

    My pecan was Kiln dried seven years ago. I had the shop check the slabs in multiple locations before plunking down the cash. 9% on their much better than mine meter! We are in SC so, I am glad to have that number. My table base lumber is being built out of recycled old boards and a 5X5 post lol. I think that when I finish and marry the base and top together, the top will eventually match the base in moisture content. I am putting rubber grommets at the eight mounting screw locations, which will allow it to contract a bit to match the base, which is just a tad lower than the top at the moment. The table top will weigh around 190 lbs when completed, so I don't think it will move on it's own. Total table weight is going to be north of 250 lbs, so when we place it, it will not be moved.

    My wife asked me "How does it feel to make something that you know will still be used a hundred years from now?" I didn't have an answer. I just make stuff as best as I can. I let others worry about that stuff.

    Well, there is a project actually finished.
    The coal man came this morning & we traded 3 tons for (sit down) $1362. :bananadead:
    Plus about $400 to build the new bin, heating season is starting with a bang...

    That silver paint is oil base, 3 gallons worth. I put 2" drain holes with screen along the front edge.

    KIMG3417.jpg

    In the good ol' days it was less than $200/ton.

    The coal truck is a little rough on the yard, it is both a grade and slope to the side. Just a bit of work for the old Ford.

    It's not to early to be thinking about building the lazy Susan for the center of your future masterpiece :thumbsup:

    No doubt, it hurt. :mad:

    To purchase an equal amount of BTU using fuel oil would be about $2300 so hard as it is to accept it is still a less expensive way to heat.
    The old stove doesn't require electricity to operate either, always a plus living out here.
