Another...

Ah. Yes, I think that would be a major selling point. I know it would for me.

Re: Thinking about new project

Segmented what? The nut? Not sure what the advantage to that would be.

Anything you can do to reduce friction would be good.

Re: Word of the week: taciturn

Just had a little nappy-poo after mowing yard and 3 of the 4 "fields". One little section was blocked off most of the Summer and between that and rain, I wasn't able to get onto it until a couple of weeks ago. Had to hit it the first time with the bush hog, the mower wouldn't have touched it. Really...

Re: Thinking about new project

Assuming the raise and lower is powered?

That'd be cool, especially if it was...segmented I guess you'd call it...like a hospital bed. Whole thing goes up and down, and half of it can be raised separately, like raising the head of a hospital bed so you're bent at the waist.

Re: Retirement ponderings...

As Red Dave said, it's all about medical. Fortunately, I have my military insurance (Tricare for Life) which is free, plus my Medicare so we're good there. Between military pension, my SS and Mawteen's SS, we're in good shape. I probably should have put the estate into a Trust years ago to protect i...

Re: 14-- thanks for the tip

Glad you found it useful.

The larger tires are actually easier to deal with. I have 4" pneumatic-tired casters on my finish mower and THEY were a cast iron BITCH to replace, even with the machine.

Board Pruning

I don't know that it's necessary in terms of cost or storage space, but my instinct is to prune older posts from the board as needed. We're primarily just BSing here anyway.

I'm thinking 30 or 45 days for any non-stickied posts would be about right, but I'd like input from the members.
