Sorry to offend folks- upon re-reading my post I can see how you might think I was offering something for sale. And I realize that ads are verbotten here.

I was simply trying to determine if the giant fans are worth hauling home. Like maybe somebody has repurposed one of these in the past, like to ventilate a chicken coop, or make a woodshop dust cleaner. You know- good old American ingenuity?

It really pains me to see things wasted. I can't go to the dump without returning with something. Just yesterday I scavenged a huge pile of old fence boards from a neighbor with the intention of drying and milling them into flooring for my house addition.

I don't know much about these big silos and grain dryers, but when I was given permission to scrounge, I discovered a great deal of useful things - motors, magnetic starters, starter switches, pulleys, etc. I know these dryers are insanely expensive, and it just seems a shame to let it rust away to nothing.

I can say that anybody out there that has access to one of these should at least rescue any single phase motors. This one had Dayton and Baldor motors- absolutely top notch stuff. Well worth the effort to rebuild and use in the shop or sell.

Hi Lynn,
I don't post often any more and usually stay out of other people's business. However, I'm with Burr on this one. I didn't find your post offensive. Old Burr knows a few things. Ask him what a Flying Jenny is. Mighty few others here know.

They was a bunch of fun if they was enough of you flying that day to sling it from one to the next instead of running with one end.

I never did get a hand under it but my older brother lost a pinky nail that never did grow back and that finger was shaped kinda like a curly fry.

I would stand close to the post, get it going and sit down on the ground. The board would clear my head and I could give a little push when the board can around.I was shorter and a lot more agile then. Later.

Lynn I looked and re-read your fan motor post 3 times and still did'nt see where you was trying to do any selling.

When you look up packrat in the dictionary that's my pix beside the word so I understood what you meant right off.

Many many times I wonder if something is worth packing back that somebody else is throwing away. It's hard to dumpster dive around here we don't have any dumpsters except at the meat locker in town and I don't want in on it. Yuck.

You can feel free to hang around and enjoy yourself on the forum as you see fit.

We do ever thing from raise kids to treat hemroids on here and are one big extended family.

I've emailed some Midol pills to ever body that got upset over your fan question. 8^)

Once again I offer my most sincere apology for the misunderstanding and invite you to hang around long enough to get to know these folks. It's a small world and life is way to short to be upset over salvaging a fan motor.

I should've read your post first. I started at the bottom of the page and already replied to Lynn on the other post. It's funny how I said pretty much the same thing, just different words.

I don't think Hank is coming back!

Hey Burr,

I don't know what it is,but some of these new people are kind of sensitive. They should have been here in the old days when ol'IHank was here. I used to really get a kick out of you guys when you would lower the boom on some Yuppies,and get to discussing politics. That is until Kim came along with the skillet.

I sho do miss my ole podnuh Bro Hank and the good ole days.

Them yuppies that whined about Ole Bro Hank's eye test posting have'nt ever said a discouraging word about the boob shots and filthy language some fellers on the hangout page have posted.

I aint never tried to post a nasty and I know Kim has a potty filter on the sites but some of them fellers still talk a little rank.

I aint got nuthin personal against yuppies myself. I just don't like um.

I know what you mean about the yupsters. I work at a state university and I'm knee deep in them.

What do you think it would take for O'l Hank to come back here? Next time you e-mail him tell him I said hi.

Burrhead    Posted 09-06-2002 at 17:21:27       [Reply]  [No Email]
I've asked him to come on back a time or 2. I have'nt talked to him lately tho I better do that fore bedtime.

Lynn Kasdorf    Posted 09-06-2002 at 15:18:22       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Thanks for that, Burr.

I've posted here a few times in the past and got some good advice on treatment of a sick hen a while back. This is very useful board.
