    “Christmas Star”(Jupiter and Saturn)

    I managed to get a picture with my iPhone 11 of it. It is moving fast. It looks to the naked eye that they are separate. The phone makes it look way bigger and brighter than it it. It is just off the tip of the tree in the second one.

    Basler Läckerli

    Anyone ever had this? My grandma used to make it and send it out to all her kids during Christmas time along with awesome fruit cake. The lackerli was soft and chewy with an interesting flavor (Hazelnut I think). Would have been good with coffee. Mom tried to make it after grandmas health...

    Casio AMW330 revival

    I have seen on here before that we have some watch aficionados on here. I know it isn’t a high end watch but it is as good of quality I am comfortable wearing around most of the time. I don’t wear watches or rings at work since they beat ”degloving” into our heads in college. It also has...

    EB2200i break in.

    New work toy. Used John Deere turf guard 10w-30 since that was the first non synthetic 10w-30 I found in my shed. Put in oil and gas and started it up. Plugged in the heater and fan that should be around 1600 watts and let it run a few hours at full throttle. With the eco throttle on it...

    Ac Delco oil on rock auto

    Looking through rock auto today for some brake parts and noticed that they had 5 quarts jugs of full synthetic ac Deleon oil reasonably priced. 0w-20 was $20 a jug and 5w-30 was $18.64. I added a jug to my cart to see what the shipping was and it only raised it a couple of bucks. Not a bad...

    19/32 socket

    Found this in Grandpa's toolbox when I was cleaning the tools up. A quick search says that some old Ford engines used this along with several other suspected uses. The most common being 8 point sockets for square headed bolts along with being an SAE match to 15mm. This one is 12 point...

    Gasket dressing

    What is there to use as gasket dressing to use on old stuff with beat up mating surfaces? I don't want to use something hardening like schelac. I see permatex makes a gasket dressing that might fit the bill. Looking to use it on my Massey carb I am working so so it doesn't get slobbery like...

    Working on getting the fuel system fixed up on my Massey Ferguson 65. It is a Marvel-Schebler TSX 695 carb on a G176 Continental engine. The tractor has sat for less than five years and fired up correctly once I replaced the points and filled the gas tank. It has had E10 run in it for a while...

    Free Echo

    Curb picked an echo SRM-2100. Only thing keeping it from running was the primer bulb. New bulb and fired right up. Only a couple of issues with it but nothing major. Tank vent leaks. The head isn't quite right. Had to add a washer to space out the line advance mechanism so that it would...

    Long low profile jack

    I rotated the tires on the wife's van the other day with my regular floor jack and it was a pain. I can barley get it under the front to the jack point and then when I had it up on jack stands there was no way I could get to the rear jack point. I ended up using the lift points on either side...
