I have an idea for the old section of sickle bar from the DB and for the life of me cant find it anywhere ! My garage isn't that big and the adtic area has limited storage too . The only thing good is i found stuff I forgot I had searching for it lol . Now after this little break I'll try again ,wish me luck Lol

I know that feeling. It happens to me all of the time considering my brother and I have stuff scattered throughout 4 sheds, 3 of which are full of gt stuff and also other stuff stored outside. I have a habit of a lot of stuff fit in a small space so I often find stuff I'm looking for buried under something or inside of something else. Also if something is being used regularly it normally will become a shelf like my tractor in the picture lol.

I was there about 12 years ago..  (car parts and tractor parts everywhere..)  Problem was..  Whenever I needed a part I KNEW I had, it took lots of my time to find the dang thing!! :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:   I guess my storage arrangements weren't very good as well as my memory!  I hauled it all out and rearranged things I knew I still would have a need for and donated the rest to another 'hoader' for him to go bonkers looking for the dang things in his shop!   :dancingbanana:   The time I spent looking for the $20 part was worth more than me spending an hour looking for it!  I still look around for some things now & then but not nary as much as I did back then!! :thumbs:   Now if I could only get the wife to organize her stuff...   :poke:  :anvil_drop:  :ah_shoot:

Al, I hope you found your part.  I took a good look at my own garage today and stuff has to go.  I have so much I never use and forgot I had.  Thanks for this reminder.

I  FOUND IT   :dancingbanana:    Yep , just where I put it so I wouldn't get cut on the edges . Above the garage laying across the collar beams . Worst part I looked up about a dozen times and didn't   SEE  it.
