We had goggles/ helmets and other protections everywhere else. Had the drill press on slowest with the belt set just a little loose. Keeping things safe... Never thought about goggles when he was running it. Thanks for the reminder!

With the many times I've had to have stuff removed from my eye, I just have to urge safety with the eyes. I want kids (& everyone) to be smarter than me! lol
I use goggles pretty religiously these days. Even wearing goggles, I can still manage to get crap in my eyes!

Got the old clutch and drive shaft out of the Bolens 800. I'm going to replace it with one I rebuilt already with new clutch discs.

Have the NOS hydro & diff under the JB diesel. Just some lines to hook up, tighten down the axle tubes, fill with oil & test.

Got the mower deck on the YTS4500 Craftsman today. Greased and leveled it. Left the plow on the DYT4000 for the time being, just in case:mecry:.

I changed the oil in both my work tractors. I greased and oiled every possible place on both tractors. I got the blades sharpened and the mandrels greased on the suburbans mower deck. I should prolly get a new drive belt for the suburban also but its not of the highest priority. The suburban got 15w 40 and the custom got 30w. Both with new oil and the suburban with its deck together, I have an unstopable pair lol

I changed the oil in all 4 of my GT's today. I hope to get a hydro filter for the Craftsman GT6000 soon so I can drain/fill the transmission. I doubt it's ever been done.

I changed all the fluids and filters on the JD 265 today. It was running great, but I didnt know when it was done last. Oil looked nice and clean coming out. I feel the old owner took good care of her.

Welded some more on my fuel tank for the diesel JB. Will test for leaks tomorrow. Once sound, I'll cut hole & weld in a filler neck.
