I made a horrible mistake.
Stupid people should never be allowed to drink alcohol, it impairs judgement and slows reaction time when used in excess, the hangovers the next morning is no different, with stupid people the problem is exemplified to such an extent that really bad things happen, this is why i don't drink, it's a wast of my money, time and body.
The resounding effects from the sheer stupidity can end up with loss of life or in my case a broken seeder.
Why stupid people feel it absolutely necessary as if it's a absolutely requirement to touch wet paint, pick up fragile things or in my case to ''inspect'' the durability of a 70 year old tool when im not looking.

It took 110 % and then some to keep from smashing the stupid hungover person into the ground and then ''inspect'' the durability of his car ! my heart has been stomped onto the ground and the only thing i got was Sorry, i have to go to work now ! I promised myself and my family i would never go to jail again, so far im controling myself and had to keel and pray to my father for strength.

If he had something of a brain left (30 years of heavy drinking, i doubt it) he would stay away from me for the rest of his life.

It is with deep regret and pain im to show you guys the damage that has been done, word of advice to people new to this hobby, keep untrustworthy, notably clumsy, ignorant or just plain stupid people as far away from your stuff, they do not understand or appreciate it like we do.
Now im going to go cry in a corner somweres for a while.

Sorry Jesse! That is great that you did not resort to violence! And I agree with you 100% on what everything you said. Let me know what the seeder is so I can try to find a replacement for you.

When something like that happens, there are two paths you can take, glad to hear you took the high road & didn't loose it.

Sorry to hear about the seeder, make sure you note date, time, etc that it happened just in case you decide to involve his car insurance company to cover parts location & purchase costs.

Jesse. You did the right thing by not resorting to violence. That never achieves anything in the long run.
Really sorry to hear of the damage this person caused.
Possibly Braze or use Ni Rod should repair.

Thanks guys, i had to walk away, i whent to work and channeled all the anger into helping as many people as i could, the more customers i made smile the better i felt, a cap for the night was to bring a co-worker to his home.
Regrettably this is the only drill seeder i have found yet, no information on it whatsoever, it was rare seeing as the Mfg that made it whent out of business in 1933.
Here's the thread i started for it.

http://gardentractor...an-2412-seeder/

After the initial shock when i saw the broken chunk on the gound i took 3 steps and then stopped, my brain started thinking clearly and i walked away, he's not worth it, the seeder is not worth it, im not young anymore, stand to lose too much, i can't stand to hurt my family and friends like that again.
It can be fixed, i no longer have a Torch, may have to bring it to a shop and have it brazed but i don't plan on ever using it again so i may use J-B Weld instead.

Very sorry to hear about the broken seeder Jesse. The high road is always the best choice. My Grandmother always told me that it takes a better man to walk away than it does to fight! I generally trust her 96 years of wisdom! Thanks for being the better man!

I am glad you chose the more difficult of the 2. I don't like ever hearing of breakage of the good stuff. It is even worse to hear of someone getting violent over broken or damaged items. You did a great thing in making the choice you did, thank you!

Jesse, glad you walked away on that. Yeah, it's tough to take, but not worth the problems the other option would have caused. I hope you can get it 'fixed' somehow, brazing would be best. Good luck!

Take it to a welding shop. They can tell you what would be best for it and know how to fix it. May cost a few $, but would be right.

Jesse, you did it right, congratulations. He's not worth it andthe seeder can be fixed. I've seen others take the low road. Never a good outcome.

Hope the repairs are quick.
