  1. Am I the only one?

    Well they were fun while they lasted. My wife has warned me to stay away from the real lights with my 10/22.
  2. Am I the only one?

    I know there must be others who are getting a kick out of busting those Christmas bulbs running across the top of the screen. My wife thinks I've lost my mind because I keep refreshing the page so I can bust em again lol. I'm easily entertained I guess. Merry Christmas to all.
  3. I like to make things, one of a kind things. I made this little collection of black powder miniatures. The rifle is about 7" long to give an idea of size. The canons all will fire. I also carve a little (birds) and build a little furniture and so on. Way to many interests.
  4. I actually turned my dishwasher into a snow thrower. I just bought her a shovel.
  5. Mine is just because I really like the Ruger Oldarmy cap and ball revolver. Simple as that, great gun btw. Always dug black powder guns.
  6. Stained glass wheelhorse sign

    Very nice indeed. Being a sometimes actual stained glass artist myself I appreciate the craftsmanship. I recently purchased a vinyl plotter/cutter and may have to make something like this. A vinyl cutter allows one to cut out very intricate shapes from adhesive backed vinyl sheets in a multitude of colors. The lead adhesive backed strips used in the type of work shown gives the appearance of the "lead Came" used in traditional stained glass window construction and has a very authentic appearance I must say. Well done !
  7. Gave my wife a new rake and a new tarp. She gave me a concussion.
  8. Proper B80 coil bracket?

    You're welcome and thanks. I love this old girl but can take no credit for it's condition. I bought it this way, back in March. The guy was very good at what he did. He restored things for a hobby and then for a living. We are almost neighbors lol I live in NH. Good luck.

    Oldarmy's 1977 B80 8 speed
  11. 1977 B-80 8 speed

    This is my new to me in March 2017 1977 B80 8sp.. Work on the restoration was done by PO. It sports a 36" side discharge deck and has had an engine rebuild of the original 8hp Kohler. This Horse is still a working horse even though she looks purdy.
  12. Decals

    Vinyl, I bought a couple and they are nice quality, just take your time applying them.
  13. Old pics from Kens tractor

    Very cool, those old pamphlets are nice to see and have a value all their own. Thanks for sharing.
  14. New old guy here

    I thought I would revive this old thread of mine. I have to say after using my 1977 B80 tractor this spring and summer I am in love with this old girl. She cuts beautifully pulls like a horse should and purrs like a kitten. I have a pretty steep path that leads down to a lower level of my property where I have my shooting range. This girl climbs up that hill like the Cog Railroad and it just keeps impressing me with it's power. It blows me away that a 40 year old 8hp engine can do what it does. Did I say I love this thing lol. Hope you are all having a great summer.
