Im in the process of putting the finishing touches on my 1957 super ride a matic resto when I suddenly notice a part missing. After searching my garage hi and low and not having any luck I went back to the sand blaster and asked if he had my part , his reply was how many parts did you bring, I had no answer because I failed to count them,don't  make the same mistake I did .Lucky for me a friend has a parts tractor and is willing to help me out THANKS HANKG.

Sucks to lose a part like that. I usually lose my parts in other sections if my shop. You could try buying yourself a sandblaster to save headaches of transportation and others' schedules.

A decent portable sandblaster is under 200 dollars and you could build your own cabinet if wanted. It would be the set up for sure.

Thats why every time we get stuff sand blasted we count everything and so do they in front of us.

Or you get it all back together and there is still a bolt in the container. And not a clue where it should go.

I've done that as well. I lost a bunch of parts for the HM80 in my MF8. The entire throttle linkage went missing but eventually I found it  months later in a place I never would have thought to look.

Yep, ya did just like I do way more times than I care to admit..... you put it in a VERY safe place.  So safe, it's even safe from YOU!   I always stumble on such lost items once I find replacements!  :wallbanging:

All the extra bolts from doing the Homelite attachments ended up fitting on the Bolens tractor. Not sure how that worked.
