    Usta was from the pails I collected long years ago (I still have 10, thanks be to a Merciful God!) I'd net about 80%. A recent gift of 'new' is yielding ~60% if I'm lucky. A friend new to casting says he's throwing away more than he gets, netting...

    They work. I had one that I used for my goose gun beat around gun in the marsh. It had some sharp edges that needed to be filed down so they would not cut you but it worked 100% except for the Black Cloud 3.5". They were the first year the shells....

    I buy most of my MTD parts from SEPW. Reasonable prices and freight, great catalogs. I have found that a genuine Cub Cadet deck drive belt will outlast an "equivalent" MTD belt 2 to 1 or better. I bought my Cub Cadet when my MTD mower locked up just...

    If you haven't already request a tracking number and go to the FedEx site for details. You may be able to get helpful details from the delivery notes. Be persistent, sometimes it pays off.

    Quite good but easy to overcook. A bigger snake makes better eating because smaller portions will be overcooked before the crust browns. I don't much care for rat snakes but have a little one (less than 3') under the back porch. I had a big...
