Having no job at the moment gives a person time to do useless things, but bet you never saw Massey Ferguson rakes before, and my Massey Ferguson weed control system. Did up the rakes today, did the flame thrower a few years ago. Some people say, I have to much time on my hands,   Noel

Taking care of your tools is just smart. Professonals used to take the last part of the day to clean, sharpen and oil their tools. Good Luck, Rick

I think that's cool.

At the end of the season I spray all of mine down and shoot a coat of cheap paint on them. I don't think my shovel is going to last longer as a result. I do it mostly because I like my stuff neat and to try and teach my boys to take care of things.

It's a silly thing but I dug a shovel with a broken handle out of the metal hopper at work. My boys and I cleaned and painted it and put a new handle in it. I showed them how to cut down 16 penny nails to pin it in place and then had them sign and date the handle. I know it cost me more for a handle then a new shovel, but I want them to learn that everything doesn't have to be thrown away. The signature is to impress upon them to do the job right if their name is going to be on it. Anything we build gets a name and date on it. That was 11 years ago. I know because I used it last weekend and every time I see their names on it, I smile a little. And that's hard to do with a shovel in your hands.

Great story. Always will be in your mind and theirs. I fixed a snow shovel that my dad and I used since I was young. He is long gone, twenty years, but it broke this year with the winter we had. Any way, all fixed up again, hopefully my son will use it after I am gone. Noel

I always say red and silver look good side by side anywhere.
