    I Phone photos: How to Fix Upside Down iPhone Photos

    I think the way you are moving makes good sense. You do not have to depend on someone showing up when they said they would, and you can keep making parts all along.

    Good luck and good weather for your move. Keep the thread going as you can.

    The funny thing about the pics is that they are correct in my laptop and only seem to be tilted or bottom up here, however if I take them with the phone rotater so the trigger button is on the right with the phone horizontal the pics are right here on pm so I will try to remember to take them that way.

    The building in Idaho is a pole barn built to house a RV, we have been putting two 3.5" thick sheets of polyiso insulation on the ceiling so we will be able to heat it in the winter. I have been loading up the machine in the corner, pressing the green button and then hopping on the scissor lift and trying to put up a sheet before the parts get done, reload, deburr and up we go again, it is only 16 feet but it seems like a long way up.

    We dragged the two Haas machines up on the trailer this morning and will work on some support stuff tomorrow.

    This my first pickup with a winch that actually brings the things closer to the truck rather than the pickup to the thing.

    Wow - that's a LOT of beaver to lift!

    The steel runners in your decking are not the actual I (H?) beams are they?
    These were added per your request?

    I generally see these in roll-back trailers for forktrucks to run on.


    It looks like your place in Cali aint too bad of a neighborhood either.

    Yep, the runners are the top of the H-beam frame rails, it is a good trailer, the beaver will lift 12k. Iron Bull trailer, I am very happy with it, it was well thought out.

    28 acres, house, shop, Creek running through the middle, spring and well for water, Steel shop w/400a 3- phase, 30k solar array, 5 miles from a 500 population town and about the same to a 3000 population town, need a new place to happen?

    Looks like a pierced frame trailer, where the cross members piece the main I beams.

    It has about a 6" piece of pipe running the length of it right down the middle too, oil filled axles and the dovetail has an over center lock to stay up so there are no pins or locke to keep it up and the same "nuckle" pushes against the ground when the dovetail is down to keep the truck and trailer from running away when you are loading something heavy on it. I think these guys know what they are doing, check out their link

    I was wondering how they got a sturdy cross with those beams showing.
    Never looked under a Landoll before.
    Prolly the same?
    They don't show much about it on the site, but you can see a pic of it on the beaver deck pic.
    Looks nice now - but a cast iron bitch to ever try to replace if they rust out!
    (Some of mine have been replaced)


    How heavy is this trailer? Must be 8000#?


    Nah, sorry Kustom. I'm not going anywhere.
    I grew up in Nowhere, and stayed right here.
    Somewhere is good to visit, but I'll always come back to Nowhere.

    Actually the post office is still there along side of the next 3, they saved them all, put them in a row by the old fire house, some time back I made a bress plaque for the post office collection.

    I'm guessing that this one is smaller.
    This is in a personal residence.

    Tuholer "to holler".... HS bud of my Dad took an interest in things electronic, late 1920's when few folk had ever HEARD a "PA system".

    Installed big ole "carbon" microphone by his cash til in his Dad's gas station.

    One speaker under the deck of the tuholer.

    Lady would go in, he'd wait just about long enough for her to get to bizness, key the microphone:

    "HEY LADY!!!" Would you mind moving over and using the other hole!!

    "We are trying to clean up, down here!!!"


    Prolly wasn't until the space age 'til rockets came off the rails any faster than red-faced wimmin' - some with skirts awry and drawers still at half-mast - shot out the door of that humble Weston, West Virginia privy!

    IDK what is available now - but I guess it's online now, so ...

    Turns out you are correct, "used to have" turned out to be the case. While I was in Idaho last they kidnapped the post office, moved it 10 miles and set it up at the red barn museum in San Andreas, so the first pic you can see the concrete pad where it used to be. To the left is what was the next post office, after that it was moved into a modern block building.

    That is most of what I know about the worlds smallest post office.
