Default How we cap a chimney around here...

Bits and pieces of Linn tractors found there way into most everything around this village (Morris), the frame rails ended up in bridge guardrails or street guard posts on corners or around fire hydrants, driveway culverts, concrete floors, etc. and the iron sheets off the floor in old dump boxes cover more than one septic tank in town(until liability made the village replace with floppy fiberglass), and this is how to cover up an unused chimney. Weight about 35 pounds. The track (or "lag") pin holes are pretty well worn in this one but the high ice creeper attachment is still good. I have seen these creeper grips used for barn door handles at an old logging camp I once visited. I had a great quanity of NOS radiator mounting springs so I used them to support the reinforcement wire when we poured a concrete floor. A guy up north took the strings of these tracks (about 26 lags per string, depending on model) off a Linn and used them for the footers for the wall of his garage. Anyone else re-use old tractor parts?
