Default Greetings from Iowa

Greetings group,

New member here, just wanted to say 'hello' and introduce myself. I'm a career fireman in Iowa. My main hobby is restoring an old fire truck that I have. I also recently acquired a Wisconsin Engine-powered Miller welder and have been tinkering on it. Since I found some useful information on here about the Wisconsin Engine, I decided to join up.

Looking forward to participating on your forums.

Damo

Hmmm... I can't seem to find the "EDIT" button... I got a little trigger happy and hit "SUBMIT" before I proofread my post. I've been having keyboard issues lately... seems as though my "n" is stuck... it's supposed to be signed "Damon." HA! Whoops.

Hi Beth,

How does one become a subscriber? Just curious... is there a particular reason that a person isn't allowed to edit their own posts? I think this is the first forum I've joined that is set up that way. No biggie, I just wondered.

Kevin,

The mighty Mississippi is still as majestic as ever. We have a big ice jam above our dam right now, but the rain we're getting right now should help take care of that.

Thanks for the greetings!

Damon

Damon,

The Subscribe link is at the top of each page. It provides instructions.

Being a subscriber is $20/yr and provides additional capabilities and space for photos...some of us don't know how to stop sharing....



That's my 24 hp Port Huron pulling my brother's 1/4 scale Case...

Greetings from a bit upriver! I like the looks of the firetruck project, worthy cause for sure. I recognized the salvage yard in the pics where your trucks were stored for a while and remember seeing one out there at the time. I really need to stop by there and pay the boys a visit, been too long!

Hi Beth, At first glance, I thot the small one was trying to pull your 24 HP backwards...because they should be looking in direction of travel...just kidding. Have a great day everyone.

JunkHunter,

The first parts truck is still at that same salvage yard. We haven't had enough of a stretch of decent weather to move it since I bought my place outside city limits. Hopefully we'll be able to get to it yet this winter.
