Lister Based Generators / Re: Rocketboy and Cujet Hurricane Irma commentary

Boy this thread really went off the tracks.
Yeah, I was kind of hoping we'd get some commentary from folks living through the event.  Fortunately another thread had some more info, unfortunately that is where I also learned Rocketboy was no longer with us.  I found his website prior to finding this forum.

"they" really don't want us to work.

day job is senior network engineer, we have a lab where we evaluate new equipment.  There is both 110 and 220 PDUs located in equipment racks, been that way for 25 years.  A couple weeks ago someone, who was escorted by a regular into the lab, plugged 110 power strip into 220 PDU, tripped lab breaker.  First time this has ever occurred, 'cause regulars know the difference.

We had to have a meet with safety regarding the incident.  Safety engineer first suggested we move all the PDUs to their own racks, and run power in NEW overhead cable trays.  They grudgingly accepted labelling voltage on the different PDUs.  I gave up trying to explain everyone working in the lab should recognize different receptacles and we should hold the person who escorted the idiot responsible   The escorting individual ended up getting rewarded for writing a good lessons learned document.  We don't hold anyone responsible for bad decisions any more.

on the other side is the occasional low freight cost.

I purchased a Harbor Freight mini-mill Jan 1, weighs ~ 130lbs in crate.  FedEx Home Delivery charge was ~ US$25, from SoCal to New Mexico, it got here in 3 days.

Take a look at the LPW2 for a cute little piece of equipment! We have them by the truckload.
Just did a search on eBay for LPW2, price point looks good.
are yours in KS? and how is parts availability.

another data point.  your "grade 5" hardware may not really be grade 5.

I work at a facility where we regularly test fasteners, this because of the high number of counterfeit fasteners.  Rigorous testing is done because our manufactured product go into areas where systems can't be repaired or replaced.

And down they go! Time to break out the big checkbook!

Did they close because of the downturn in the Oil Patch?

Link is to one for sale on Smokstak. I live close enough to pick up and store for anyone who could use that help. I have done business with Tom previously. No connection to this engine, just getting it out.
nice looking complete unit, just a bit to far from New Mexico

yep, another thanks from me.  I know how much of a PITA running a system is.

Thar aint no Fiat round these parts.
There might be.  White, Hesston, Allis-Chalmers, Oliver and Minneapolis-Moline all sold tractors under their name that were made by FIAT.

I have a Long 550, which is basically a FIAT tractor.  I was referred to CMN to download FIAT manual, but you have to be a member..  I'm trying to get some info on the hydraulic system.

Anyone a member of Classic Machinery Network forum?

If so I need some help getting my account activated.

I registered last weekend, but when I log in I get account not activated.  I've checked my SPAM folder but haven't received anything from CMN.  Their FAQ says contact an administrator but I can't find an email address for a forum admin.

I'm trying to download some manuals for an old tractor I own.

I loaded the spray bottle with 50% IPA (I don't have any methanol)

Hmmm, that is an interesting use for Indian Pale Ale.  :D

Sorry, that is the first thing I thought when I saw IPA.
