Sorry for not being able to post for a while!!---got too many things going on this year and now got goat-roped into clearing a fence line around 4 acres for Sis, so we can put up a woven wire fence to keep coyotes out.---been cutting some fair sized trees and have acquired a economy model bandsaw and an Alaskan M K III chainsaw mill.--I am making some lumber from the bigger stuff and lots of firewood from the rest.
Still working a little on the creepers too!
How are you guys these days? thanks; sonny

Health problems slow me down a lot, but I can't quit! Once you give up,--you won't last longer!
I do hope this weather holds up for a while yet!
I also did just get a Viking twin garden tractor, (not running, but not stuck) Always wanted a steel wheel walk behind garden tractor.---If you can find anything about the Viking tractor, let me know! thanks; sonny

adapt & overcome until the sight gets fixed. it still works just doesn't seem to update the recent post box.
My Lincoln threw a magnet on the flywheel and ate the stator. I think I can get a stator easy enough but the flywheel is proving to be challenge. that old Briggs engine runs like a champ but without the alternator working i have nothing to excite the field on the welder/generator. Any one know if I can use the flywheel off a newer engine?

I get an error on the link, but that's a flickr issue, it says photo not found (maybe it's not set public?).

Remember MBN likes pic links in BBCode. Flickr has that as an option, so for another pic in your album, this should work:


When you have just one photo displayed (rather than an album) the share button is the bent arrow in the bottom right.

That's using the small 240x160 thumbnail option, which automatically makes clickable links. I usually strip off all the stuff after the first slash-url, after I paste the link in MBN, which is all the flickr captions and link text stuff.

(This is posting a link instead of uploading to MBN)

cool I'll try that. I usually resize the picture to MBN requirements and it posts ok. I didn't verify the size of that one.
