the other day i was out tinkering in the shed- finished wiring it for electric- and i tried for an hour to look for a belt retainer plate for my 97 mastercut - just to get it out of the shed so i can start my mod projects- i KNOW i have like at least 3-4 of them- can i find one? No such luck. I think i found one off my RER murray- where the crank passes thru is offest too far to the one side - unbelieveable.

Ill haveta tear the parts shed apart to find one.

This happends to me alot. I'll be working on something, then think of a piece of steel that I know I have in my scrap pile. I know its there because ive been looking at it for years. But when I try to find it, i usally have to go through the whole pile before I find it....

....If I find it...



....Then it dosen't work anyway...



another hour of my life gone pale

I REALLY do need to clean up my parts storage shed and get it better organized- i cant remember whats even in there anymore. After i tore my original metal shed down to make way for my new one, i pretty much threw everything in there.

I know i have a complete set of deck brackets for a murray as well - i want to mount a MTD deck on my 17HP opposed murray hydro and start mowing with it ( after i rebuild the MTD deck).

Yeah i do that- wife says i have CRS sometimes - like use a hammer, sit it down and a minute later im like " where the #@*# did i set the thing? "

I think its because we're preoccupied with projects instead of minor details like where we just sat something.

lol YEH i did that today i was raking up leaves then putting them in a bucket then taking the bucket to a big heap of stuff and dump it and go back, i leaned the rake against the side of the sticks and came back after tea and was walking around there for ages "WTH i'm sure i left it here!" and i must have walked past it like ten times before i stopped, turned round and felt very....very....VERY stupid!

Had a pretty good score today - we went to a large local flea market earlier- i was looking around and found two golf kart rims/tires for $20 - which is practically the same as i paid for two of the four i originally bot years ago. I looked around for a couple more, but couldnt find any. ill just have to be patient and wait for two more to pop up, then can have 2 sets of wheels for my wheelhorse- one slicks and one turf.

Also scored a small diecast JD lawntractor and a few diecast car ornaments.

o god i am so disorganized, and then i clean up everything and have no idea where everything is, also i can set down a tool, pick up a wrench put half a turn on it and go to grab the other tool again and be like where the hell did it go i just put it there, and turns out i put it like 5 feet away in plain view. also ill do the same and know i have parts or pieces of steel and wont be able to find them for hours and realize its right next to me or something i hate it

i usually see somthing in my shed and think i better move that before i need the space on the work bench and i lose that part, so i put it somewhere i cant possibly lose it then...i can neever find it lol i did it a few weeks ago with a small drill adapter that lets me put a 1/4 inch socket on my drill for self tapping screws and i only have the one adapter, i was in and out of the shed and my house like 10 times before i realized i put it in a container on the shelf right infront of my face lol

I do that kind stuff all the time and I hate it. One thing I do alot is I'll drop something in a perfectly uncluttered clean work space an it takes me atleast ten minutes to find. Then when I do find it it is always right where I had looked like 5 times already. Lol
