totentotes

Alpine run today to stock up on stuff and pick up my IBC totes.  Just so happened that Julianne was in town with her truck too, so I loaded 2 into mine and 1 into hers for transport back to TFL.  The plan is to use these for an aquaponics experiment.  http://www.backyardaquaponic.com/ 

When she dropped off the third IBC, Julianne also brought along a replacement shaft key for Jam (JuliAnne's Mixer).  I extracted my quick fix screw and the real fix is in now.  48,59,24,0,B

Cool Totes!


Lots of those used down here on ranches in South Texas. Also those totes are used in the oil drilling and natural gas fracking up in the Eagle Ford Shale.

John, I hope those totes are new. I've seen lots of them that had fracking fluid and fluid to clean out H2S (hydrogen sulfide) from oil wells stored in them for sale on craigslist.

John where is the set screw to hold the shear pin in?Did the shear pin shear off or did your set screw come out?
