Re: FAN SECTION??

Could be a Dempster ten foot is my first thought. I'd need to go look at mine to be sure.

Re: Make?

I agree with Ivan. I don't think it is a 16 ft though. I have a what's called an 11 1/2 ft and mine looks bigger unless the picture is throwing me off. Is the helmet cast iron?

Re: Cold morning

Does she sale any parts Windy or just hoard them ? There was a man West of Tyler had about 3 or 4 acres of old cars, wouldn't sale anything. Shot you if he caught you looking around. The place was all covered in trees and brush so you didn't even know anything was in there . That was in the 70's. Pl...

Re: Cold morning

It seems in our area all the rural water supply companies get their water from Corsicana. I will say they seemed to have done a good job getting things back on line even with the boil order. I can say I'm pretty much back to normal. Went to town got my first Dallas Morning News in a week, bought som...

Re: Cold morning

I'm not surprised. and I'm pretty sure that if we have the same issue again the problem won't have been fixed, because the same people that lets us get in that position are the same people in charge today. By April it will have been forgotten and put on the back burner. Weather man says we can thank...

Re: FE Meyers Pump (Barn Find)

I've ordered Meyers books before but most of the info is about water pumps with pistons that run by motor. Not windmill pumps. So I can't be of much help. It seems since the piston pumps continues after the windmill pumps more info survived.

Re: Cold morning

Yes your probably right about what the old folks would have done. Someone posted this said they saw it on Facebook: 2020 was the year from hell, 2021 is the year hell froze over. Have water since yesterday afternoon. Under a boil order. I'd sure like to take a shower but kinda reluctant to get rid o...

Re: Cold morning

Will I joined the water less herd last night. Had water at nine went to take a shower at ten and didn't. I figure the water co lost power to the pumps, something went wrong.

Re: Cold morning

We are supposed to have snow and ice come in here tonight after midnight on top of what we already have on the ground. I may stay off the roads until Friday at least. We've been blessed in our area haven't been without power at all. Temps are supposed to start moving up tomorrow after we get the dump.
