@Nosmo. I like it! Using scrap material goes with the culture of being a scrounger. The only thing is.... my beam does not have any pre-drilled hoes and I sure don't have a drill capable of drilling through that beam. I'll have to do a 'buddy check' and see which one want to help me out for a case of his favorite flavor. @Avalancher. Yes, I'm happy that this came up and that, after a lot of frustration, the good lady came through for me. As for the pawn shop Cub Cadet 27, if she had taken my offer of $800 it would have been in the stable instead of the Huskee 35. $800 might have been worth the risk re: the cylinder. But for $200 more... I win!
