I got off of the phone today with McMaster-Carr. I had ordered a few parts to slap on my "Crud Cadet" and the UPS tracking indicated that they had been delivered. My wife knew nothing about it arriving and there has been no gift package near my door like the UPS site says online. Wrong house? Stolen? I don't know and I didn't know what to do so I gave McMaster Carr a call. I got a call back about an hour later stating that they didn't know what happened either and I should have one on my doorstep on Monday. That's a good amount of trust right there! I am very thankful. Now let's see if the UPS driver finds the right house or our little snitch stays away. Don't know what anyone would do with an odd sized belt, an acorn nut, and a hydraulic hose end (a different project). I don't think I have any evil twins lurking in the vicinity.

Good people. I ordered through McMaster-Carr at work for years and never ever had a problem. Their shipping was incredibly fast and the order fill was always accurate. Excellent people to work with. No matter how small or large the order they were always happy to help.
Hope your package gets to you this time.

Good stuff. A tad pricey, but always as promised. My brother's first job out of college was there.

Oh, Kelly, you should see this one. If he hadn't won last years Ugly Tractor, I wouldn't have stood a chance with my Massey.

I won't take credit for the nickname but I feel it fit the old Original well at the time.

I have had very good luck with these folks. Will get more things, as I need, from them.

Maybe the next contest should be re-name this tractor..."Phoenix" comes to my mind, you know the mythical bird that came back to life...looking at this tractor and having it start up would certainly seem like coming back from the ashes...Wow !
