I safety wired some bolts on my cross member that we’re notorious for coming loose. Been great ever since! Sometime it’s old school tech that works just fine.


Yeah, I did it with the bolts that hang the transfer case in my truck off the crossmember, they came loose before.

I could drive right through the cut logs, but they would be right next to the loader. Did not leave me any wiggle room, I pushed them either side. And took some way down to the end and dumpd them.

1:14 to 1:25, I pushed the tree that’s parallel on the right. It was centered in the available space. And right before the end you can barely see the remnants of the stump I pushed through, basically it’s wood debris color instead of dirt.

I think the sun would have cooperated better going clockwise. Oh well. I was losing daylight and needed to wrap things up.

Thanks, it has been a long time coming. Not all done, but at least I got some use out of it. I don’t know that I will do anything else before spring, we’ll see what winter brings.

I chased the threads with a bottom tap, and tightened the bolts to make sure the length is good. Now I’ll paint the plate for next time, and drill the other plate just in case.

Found a blacksmith to straighten the battery cover enough to close all the way.

I counted 140+ hammers in their shop, various sizes, shapes, and handle lengths.

They used this little furnace to heat the metal.
