Nice! Another 55 with no oiling holes. Cubs must have been popular in NC possibly for tobacco farming.

$123 generally means the seller has not set a price. This usually happens when the seller has several items for sale and will price them individually. It looks like this selling is parting it out as opposed to selling it whole. I doubt you will buy it all for the price posted.


Ah, I see. You can tell I don't buy much on CL! :D

Gonna have to buy one of these soon Dale...
https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/produ ... _vc=-10005
Each one can house 4 Cubs or A’s.
The first I set up made it through Hurricane Sandy and I’ve had for 10 years now.
Tractor Supply runs sales on them through the year usually knocking $100 off the price.
I’ve got two setup and a third still in the box sitting in my barn. ;)

We'll bring that box right on down, Mike!! :lol:
Oh, and sorry, Mike... I just got back from a 30min each way drive to buy that bolster and I have bad news...there was a freeze crack along the front...phooey!!

But wait! My sisters and I have a "thing" called FINCHENOMICS. It goes something like this... I did NOT buy that bolster for $75, so now I have $75 I can spend on anything I want...FREE money!! It's amazing what you can do under FINCHENOMICS!!

That's like someone trying to lose weight at the gym saying. Hey l burn 400 calories on the treadmill now l can have a browny. :lol:

Very nice buy, but you must be a glutton for punishment. You haven't even finished the last one yet.
Don't mind me, l'm just jealous. My wife would disown me if l even looked at another one right now.
Congrats on the find

Very nice, Dale. I didn't know that the '55's don't have oiling holes until i re- read your thread. Why was that?
