Idle Electric Motor

To work on an electric motor without it toppling over,

I drilled a hole in my wooden workbench to slip the shaft through and hold the motor steady. I also use the hole to stabilize gear drives.

Storage Flip-Flop

After it had been sitting empty for many years, we decided to convert a grain bin on our farmstead into a storage building for feed. The old grain bin door was replaced with a wooden door big enough to drive our skid steer through. A silo winch slides the door up and down on a 3" I-beam. The neighbors say it looks like an oversized chicken feeder, but now we're able to buy feed by the semi load—and we don't have to shovel feed by hand or use wheelbarrows anymore.
