        Another fine video. 3 am in Ohio 42F. I wonder how many people live up there with all that rock have ever drilled about a half a dozen holes in all that rock and then just dynamited it. You would think you'd have enough stone to cover a mile long road.

                working in the cold takes some grit. I'd be sitting in a nice warm house, or I'd have a heater going!

                      Is that a regular container, or a high cube that thing fits in. Very nice place to put it.

                        Andrew, don't you heat in your garage? you look like your freezing your ass off. With all that free wood you have hanging around, you could easily build a great wood stove to keep warm, it would also make a great video.

                          Maybe, it seems like I would spend too much time dealing with the wood.

                          @Andrew Camarata Yes $1,000 dollars is way too much for two limit switches and a used motor.

                          I have not done that. They wanted $1000 for a motor when I bought that door.

                                I realy do like the video you make and all the effort you put into them to make them as good as possible at the same time as you are working. One thing i do not like is the constant lack of using hearing protection. I have problem with tinitus due to a lot of loud noice even wearing hearing protection most of the time. I'm afraid that you will have big hearing issue within a few years. Working in the workshop with the angel grinder and the plasma cutter with no hering protection is almost asking for problem later.

                                  Idk if it’s just me, but I would have cussed so many times out of all your videos. Things happen and you kinda brush it off and fix it. No telling how many F 💣 I would have dropped. Keep up the good work 👍🏻

Even when he broke the sledge hammer clean off the shaft, he just shows it to the camera, takes a breath & carries on as if nothing happened........I'd be cussing like crazy, calling the thing a 'bitch' & all sorts!!!!

                                                        Probably should've hooked it up the tacked it one , made any adjustments and then welded it up but for not having it done in a factory with computer driven robot's to weld it which is howsnits done, not bad

Nothing wrong with being the first when he said your the first to put this system on a yanmar. I'm sure he got some you wanna do what reactions when making contacts to get the right pins and shims. This system is a no brainer since the hammer and bucket need to be able to work together in harmony

I know you have to cut the shaft I've had many bush hogs different types and sizes and never had this happen. I watched a video about a farmer that this has happened to but the shaft worked fine for his, but his friend borrowed it and the shaft went threw his tractors gearbox. The shaft was made by Taurus I've called them stayed on the phone for half the day, i took it back to Tractor Supply and swapped it out but the same problem.They said that they had the problem years ago and it was taken care of, bull. I've had many types of tractors and bush hogs, never had this problem. It's difficult to decide how much to cut off and lack the tooling and physical ability anymore.( I really like your YouTube videos. I was a a machinist in my day.)

I also want you to know that I have watched a lot of your videos about a lot of different things, and I love them all. But today YT gave me a recommendation to watch a couple other guy's channels, who also do excavating. I could only watch a few minutes of them and then I had to turn them off, as they were boring me to tears. Also they were not half the machine operator that you are. One of them's excavator was bigger than yours, but I bet you could work circles around him with any of your small excavators. I have never seen anyone like you in my life of 61 years. Not only are you a master machine operator, but you can repair anything, and you can build anything, and do it all in the best possible way. You are humble too, and work hard for everything you have. I think very highly of you, Andrew, and always wish the best for you in your life. Take care.
