You have misplaced that one critical part, the specific tool to finish the project, that set of decals to give her that finished look! Tell us about that one thing you couldn't find or LOST! My misplaced tool was my glasses that I found right on top of my forehead . Chuck

Couldn"t find my sledge hammer. I loaned it to a guy doing some work at my place and felt sure he accidently took it home. No biggie, I just bought another one. A few months later, I found that sledge. I had used it to prop up the floating cutter bar on my grain head.

While working on a Kubota at work, I couldn't find the four wheel drive shaft that I set aside to put on next. I looked for it for an hour or more before I got someone to help me find it. turns out, I had put it up on the tripod light in front of me. I couldn't find it with the blinding light in my eyes.

While working at a CASE POWER + EQUIPMENT store I removed the cab top cover from a 1070 and knew I had left a 3/4 in wrench in the top when I installed the cover. When finished the customer was there and I left it go not saying anything. About 20 years later and over 100 mile away working for a dealer guess what I found while working in the top of a 1070. Yep, there it was, a little dusty, but it was my wrench, Rod.

Are you also the guy that left a 1/2", 9/16 box end wrench in the oil pan of my 970? I have it if you can identify it.

Darrel, I checked my tool box and they are not missing, but if you find a 24in Snap on channel lock in anything I will claim that, LOL.

Lost my 3/8 ratchet many years ago. When we moved my 33 Chrysler to our ranch about 5 years later it was on the deck of the trailer when we arrived. Last place I used it was inside the car. Steve

You still got the 33? Would love to see a picture. When I was a 18 year old kid, had a 37 Nash. 12 spark plugs and suicide doors.. wish I had kept it.

About 6 years go I put a spindle for the deck on my 442 lawn tractor where I would be able to find it the next spring...still lookin! Had to have the input shaft made on the gear box on the 400 pto combine last fall. Come to put it together the other day and couldn't find the drive belt. The one hanging on the machine was too long. Looked around a couple days and could not find one the right length. Happened to be in the old shop and noticed a brand new dusty Powrtorq belt hanging from the ceiling....yep, exact one! Don't even remember ordering one, crs disease!

On our 480C backhoe, I had taken the backhoe unit off to work on the valve stack. A few months later I was ready to re-attach the two, but I couldn’t find one hose with the quick-connect fitting. The one I had I had already installed on the valve stack, but was missing the other. I checked the tractor, then alternated turning the shed upside down, and the shop where I rebuilt and painted the valves. After a few days I finally removed the tape (from painting) from the fitting where the hose should go… only to find the quick-connect fitting I was looking for. There never was a second hose. Both the tractor and the backhoe have one hose with female q-c fitting, and a male fitting, and when you unhook the unit, you hook them back to themselves. I felt stupid, but at least I figured it out without buying a new fitting for it!

I have lost the serial number plate for my 55 VAI. I put it up so I would have it when I was done with the restoration. I have been looking for almost a year now.

I have an uncle that buys 10 hammers a year. Me on the other hand whenever I can't find, lose, drop or miss place something I always get my wife to help find it. I don't know how she does it, but she does it with me just telling her what it looks like.

Lost my grain moisture tester, found parts of it when we unloaded the wagon of corn. I had left it in the grain tank after answering a phone call. It went through the unload auger. Rod.

I dropped my cell phone in the top of the Harvestore once and it came out the bottom about 6 months later. Warranty doesn't cover stuff like that.LOL

The tin plate that the chin piece on my Massey 65. I painted it and put it on the back of a lawn chair with an old cushion. I tore the place apart looking for it. A buddy came over and sat in the chair somehow it got inside of the cushion. That and all kinds of other things get put away for safe keeping

One day I was changing the oil on the old WD45 and my daughter came and told me I had a phone call. I set down the plug and when I came back I could not find it. Weeks later after several trips out of town I uncovered the ATV and there it sat on the front of the ATV. I'm sure glad I'm the only one running these old tractors.

Always try and leave the house each morning with a pen or two in my pocket. About a third of the time get on the road and no pens.

In the years before 4 wheel drive pickups I put my tire chains away one spring in the perfect place. It puzzled me for years where I put them. Probably about 20 years later when cleaning out the garage in a box under some lawn mower parts, I had that "Oh yea" moment. The original box they came in labeled "TIRE CHAINS". I hate when that happens. Arvin

A 1" shaft coupler. Used them by the dozen when I had the welding shop. I had one left, it was in my "stuff" pail and had been for 15 years. When I was working on my combine this summer I needed it. Looked all over for it including a full dumping of the "stuff" bucket. Didn't find it so I went to town and bought a weldable gear hub and made one. When I went into the shed after, it layed right there on the floor.

Not necessarily related to tractor projects but the one thing I'm always looking for is a pencil, I can have 10 of the things when I start a project but 15 mins in I can never find any of them...

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
