An old swing
[Return to Topics]

A friend is moving out of his place and he had this old swing .I asked him what he was going to do with the swing . He said nothing you can have it . So I figured I had done alot for him like let him use all my haying equipment Kept his horses at different times plus other things So I went right over and got the swing [ what a job that was ] but when I got it home I seen how the swings were connected at the top . This bracket fits around a 3 inch pipe and the chains hang on a little ball . So this swing will last a long time with just a little grease .
I have never paid any never mind to swings
before but I'm thinking they don't make them like this any more .
There are so many things they have made in the past that are really neat . They thought it out and made it to last .
Like my windmill as it turns it pumps oil to the top and then grooves channel it to all the moving parts so if you keep oil in it. It would last for ever . All that pump is , Is a pipe in side of a pipe with a ball bearing at the bottom of each acting as a check and as it turn the mill
pushes down on the inter pipe forceing the oil up that pipe and it run out the top .

Yes,,I just discovered why lawn tractors are streamlined.painted fancy colors and has racing stripes. They go well on the trailer when you haul them back to the dealer for repairs. You can drive faster.

If you need a 671 Jimmy blower for that thing I got one here in the bosses junk. Could you use about fifty more horses? You might get the mowing done early.
