  1. Here in lower Alabama we're blessed with all of the above. Only a few scorpions but they're here. Now throw in the red wasp and guinea wasp and you'll start looking under and behind everything you touch.
  2. How many people here like to metal detect? I too like it and have buckets of metal I have saved. I don't get to do it much anymore due to my health but have a trip planned in the future. There is an old loging spur on our hunting lease and I'd like to get some more rail spikes. The track was there in the 30's.
  3. Kale? Nasty plant? I love kale. My favorite green.
  4. Hi Benjamin. I'm from Monroe County. I too am new to the trade. Been at it for a couple years now. Lost a lot of time due to health issues but am trying to modify my shop and get back to work. Where are you located?
  5. Try a tungsten electrode for tig welding. IMO works better than ceramic.
  6. My grandmother had guinea and made dumplings or cornbread dressing with them. All dark meat but very tasty.
  7. I too have used diclofenac. The castor oil works better on my hands. My knees however are too far gone. I'm candidate for replacement of both but after having my bladder removed last year, major surgery of any kind is out of the question for a long time.
  8. I have arthritis in my hands. Not as bad as what you're describing but bad enough. Thumbs are the worst. When it acts up I start rubbing hands with castor oil every morning. Rub it in good. Wrapping in hot towels helps even more. After about a week I'm good for a few months. I'm talking pain free for a few months. Try it. It really works.
  9. Yeap, scrap yard prices sound a lot better. Question, did all the tires have screws through them? See them with and without.
  10. These are the narrow buggy tires. I think I will pass and find some at the junkyard. I don't buy antiques.
  11. What's the going price for WI wagon wheels? I know a guy has some for $40 each. Looks to be around 36" or so. I know it depends on how bad you want them but I don't want to pay for decorations.
  12. I will be praying for May. I lost my mother-in-law to breast cancer. One of the best women I ever had the pleasure of knowing. Let us know when she rings that cancer free bell.
  13. I've never been bored enough to use a shovel. I hate that your longbow cracked. Longbows are fun to shoot. My hunting bow is 73#. I shot a 100# bow once. That's too much bow.
