Not needed if your shop is a 1/4 mile from the neighbors and a row of trees between.

Wow folks! Once again the wonderful folks at FarmallCub.com do not disappoint!

I have a great deal of these items, but some of the larger things like a welder and a press are things I still lack, as well as some smaller things.

As for hosting a cubfest, I need to attend one first! (yes throw a tomato at me for not making it to one yet :oops: ) But, we may host one one of these days. I had always wanted to attend Boss's but never could get my work schedule to allow for it. Speaking of that, has anyone heard anything about him lately?

Thank you again everyone for all these suggestions! I do want to be able to rebuild final drives and such, so a press is high on my list. The bearing separator is pretty high on the list too.
Me like tractors. :tractor:

That welder, we call them a tombstone welder, is what I learned to weld on at 10 years old in 1985. Dad still has it and uses it, he's 70. I bought one 15 years ago for my shop at home for $100. Used it some but use my portable stick welder more so I recently listed it for sale. Sold it for $160 :D

we used the wire feed welders at LSU . when they worked , they worked great ( especially on thinnish metal ) . we always seemed to be fiddling with them more than welding with them . But we did have 4-5 people using the same welder with "mixed" experience :lol: coppersmythe

Val I agree on the anvil. I got mine from a friend and use it regularly. Damned thing weighs a ton, I’ll bet the BMW was dragging its tailpipe with that in the trunk.

If you have the ceiling that can support it I wouldn't be without my 1 ton chain hoist. I use it to remove the hood, to install and remove rear wheel weights, to lift a rear tire to change width setting, to holding one side of the rear end up while removing the final drive, etc. You can do a much better job of minute adjustments with a chain hoist than with a jack. Just my $.02. :wink:
