If he can get a hold of someone who has a cnc machine or works somewhere that has a cnc machine he can probably get the part replaced. My brother works at a cotton mill (makes ropes and mops and such) and they have a cnc machine there that he can use pretty much whenever he wants for free. So we abuse that from time to time, actually had a washer that they dont make anymore break on a lawnmower so we just cnc'ed a new one.

F big companies. if they dont want to provide service then do it your self and dont buy from them again... its what i do.

Wife wants to plant; but, we did it mid-April last year and got burned by late frost around late April/mid May. We are going to give it another week and watch the weather.

No sense in planting anything here. Mushrooms, and that's about it!!

If you are worried about a late frost in your region, do what I am doing. Go to your local WalMart (or I found them cheaper at a Big Lots this year) and get the seedling kits. They sell little dehydrated peat discs in trays. You add water, the discs expand. You can then plant your seeds in the peat and set the trays near a window for a couple weeks until it is safe to plant them outside.

I got a ton of tomatoes coming and banana peppers are growing fast. I have jalapeno plants, but I have yet to get one to produce. My watermelon was epic last year, so I'm hoping for more of the same. I also got some red onions that got HUGE.

My early estimate is that I'll eat about 325 BLTs this summer.
