Wow on the load with the two Gravelys for the money!  You did great. Plus two bus hogs.

I probably got thousands of hours behind the 12hp walk behind Gravelys.
That's what we used to keep the weeds down on the Christmas tree farm.
I never thought that i would ever want another one. I think I can work on
them blind folded.

My Gravely time is with the older Gravely engined machines. They are tough old units. I have a 73 model super convertible my dad traded an old 49 model in for.

Today I picked up two cans of all-sorted new nuts and bolts.
Mixed in was 17 slip on lock nuts. I never seen anything like
this before. Some places are asking $20.24 each for them.

My latest project is putting a second floor in the barn. So I had to move a lot of
stuff that hasn't been moved for a while. Some of the stuff was part of my small
engine collection. I had over 3000 engines in my collection years ago. I'm now
down to a few hundred engines. All came from the junkyard. The ones I want to
show you is kinda rare. Years ago small engines was made so if you changed the
oil pan and rotated the carb. you could change a horizontal into a vertical one.
The first picture is of a very rare B/S engine only made a very short time because
the crank would not get the oil needed and they would blow up.

I have been finding stuff. Just to busy to post.
One of the best thing the other day was a Ridgid
driver case full of driver bits. It looked to be new
not used. It must have over 100 drivers inside.
People are just crazy with what they trash.
I also picked up two new old stock Wheelhores
mule drives. I'm thinking I will just take them
apart for the idler pullieys. Also go around 50
new lag bolts.

There is a Wheelhorse show this next weekend somewhere in PA.  You could go there and sell the drives.

My son was talking about going to get some parts.

Today I went to the junkyard hoping to find some alum. to cover the exposed
wood parts of my solar kiln that I'm building. So what did I find but two rolls
of alum flashing that looks new. Happy day... I also got another 40 lb bucket
of nails and two yankeys. all for $40.00. That was 66 lbs of alum.

I'm green with envy - all the cool stuff you find for virtually free.  I'm also a bit red with anger - at the waste.  You are just picking in one junk yard of probably 10 of thousands across the country.  What a wasteful society we have.

We used to have a little junk yard in the town I worked.  It was on Berry Street.  They organized the junk a bit and you could buy whatever (haggling allowed to some extent).  The running joke was people called it the "Berry Street Mall", playing off the big shopping center malls in the area.  You would say you went shopping at the Berry Street Mall instead of scrounging at the junk yard :D  It closed down probably 15 years ago :(

What surprises me is that more people doesn't go shopping at our junkyard.
I think the biggest reason is that it's one BIG mud hole. It's nothing to find
6 inches of mud to walk through. They haul in rock to cover the mud every so
often but it just disperses.
