Project, Car Wash

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Project, Car Wash

Postby Eugene » Fri Oct 11, 2019 5:17 pm

I could stand fewer projects. But then I wouldn't have anything to do.

Leaking hydraulic control valve. Skid steer up on stand to remove the bottom skid plate and floor plates exposing the valves.

Headed to car wash Sunday when the temperature gets a bit above freezing. Need to remove about 20 years of dirt and grime to work on the hydraulic control valves.

$8- or $9- in quarters, engine cleaner wash, did a pretty decent job of cleaning up the entire skid steer. That was the good news.

Bad news. Two toe nails removed on left foot about 6 weeks ago. Yesterday, dropped one of the loading ramps, about 70 lbs., on my left foot toes. Black, blue, swollen, painful to walk. Today at the pain management doctor for an injection in right knee. During the nurse interview, I didn't know which hurt worse, right knee or left foot toes.

Still have to get the skid steer off the trailer, into shop, up on the ramps, to determine exact location of hydraulic fluid leak.

Yup. Todays injuries; two wasp bites and the wood vise parts on my Black and Decker workmate came off and the entire device fell on my injured toes.

Good news. The skid steer started this afternoon. Didn't start after the car wash. Tarped the engine and left on the trailer to dry.

Read this thread to my wife. She winced, then said, “Eugene, three words: steel toed boots.”

Couldn’t agree more.

Steel toes shoes. No, I've had them before and they are not comfortable.

Yesterday during the nurse interview before the knee injection, I was telling her about my toes. She ask if I was suppose to be doing that type of work.

Maybe I should just quit working and go into politics. I think I could do it, promise anything, talk good, produce nothing.

Or maybe it's time to pick up a good book and read--give your toes time to heal. :wink:

In all seriousness, I hope you heal up quick and experience a lot less pain in the future.

Stanton:

Morning, managed to bang my injured toes this morning with a step ladder. Said a few things and been hobbling around all day.

Around noon Son stopped by before we went to the acreage. Wife picked up one of my new tennis shoes and had son order a pair of steel toed tennis shoes for me.

Edit. Spelling
