I've dabbled in and out of blow molding, injection molding, vacuum forming, rubber extrusion. I've finally found a career in fpvc, pvc, and dual extrusion of plastics. I'm responsible for tearing down a job, and setting up the next, achieve the profile, and make money for the business. It has been rewarding, and I have been at it for 5 years now. My travel to work is cut and dry- no driving all over the state, and home at night with my wife. I can see retiring from my company some day

Now, I can still work a young man's game. But that's only if I'm doing it for my house or family. In the past, I hauled asphalt driving a Ford 9000 single axle, operated a John Deere 2100C for 9 years during the off season. A short time water proofing basements nearly made an old man out of me before my time- to heck with that! I always had a muscle car or truck to tinker with. I've now settled on working on my IH Cub Cadets, since I've been doing that since I was 11 or so!

Retired Heavy Wrecker Towing/Recovery Operator. Master certified Auto Mechanic, and Master Certified Heavy Truck Mechanic. I also hold certifications in truck maintenance and modification.

Nowadays I just buy old farm tractors, repair and resell.....don't make much money at it, but keeps me out of trouble.

I posted early on in this thread, but thought I'd throw on a couple "action shots". Pulling a main link, (looks like a connecting rod) from a 1600 ton Danly press. And my pal, (retired now) prepping some replacement gears for a top drive Fagor 2500 ton press.

That's awesome. You ever work on a Schuler line up in Twinsburg? The company I work for bought the Tandem line 11 out of the Twinsburg plant. I believe it is a 2500 T lead hydraulic with 4 1500 T mechanicals. Anyway, good to see someone else on here that does some heavy stamping.

My grandfather had a beautiful 1957 Mack B-61 tandem axle with dual swing out booms. I think the winch was either a 40,000#, or an 80,000#. We were up to 3 large semi wreckers, a roll-back, and two Ford F350 wreckers, one being a 4x4. Owned and operated service station for 40+ years. Last of the mom and pop business, I started there at 14 and had to pump gas, wash windows, check oil and trans fluid on the full service island! Had been driving my IH Cub Cadet Original to the job during this point! I think gasoline was about .98 to 1.03 a gallon back then.

I sold a lot of Sunoco gas during my high school years, it varied anywhere from $.17 to $.22 a gal.
oil was .25 a qt for bulk in glass bottles, to $.55 in cans.
!0W 30 oil was just coming out.
My wage was $.95 an hour and Mc Donald's burgers were $.15
1961-1964 were the years, seems like yesterday

We sold Sohio gasoline. I started pumping fuel just as the all-steel 1-qt engine oil containers were going to the same size-cardboard containers. $10 would get you an honest 5 gallons of gas, a pack of smokes, and a 6-pack of light!

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
