    IMO based on what you've said about what you need it to do, I don't think you need a 30 HP tractor. I certainly wouldn't think you'd need anything bigger than the JD you mentioned. You'd pro'bly do fine with something from there down to mebe even...

    And you prob'ly believe that a 21 year old tractor only has a thousand hours on it. Right? Mebe so but I'd look hard at it. Not knowing how hard you plan to work it and what you plan to do, it's hard to know what to recommend and I won't. I...

    mold maker replied to a thread Is it okay in Reloading Equipment

    Yeah, I'm frugal. I helped my Dad build the kitchen cabinets and install Formica tops. I don't remember exactly what the date was, but I was around 30. I'm still using those Formica tops and the aluminum edging is the only thing needing attention....

    When I run my security program it removes any suspicious, known, and suspect items stored in my memory (cookies I think). The first time I try to log in, I encounter the same error. After the first time, it works normally.

    The sad thing is you may try time after time and suddenly the problem disappears without you knowing why. A little lino (to harden and fill out) added will likely help. Once you get the melt level down in the pot, a good scraping of the pot...
