Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

    With your environment when putting nuts and bolts back on equipment try some anti-seiz on them -- ya its kinda messy and gets everywhere but it works great when taking things back apart -- ESPECIALLY on stainless steel or when connecting two different metals like steel and aluminum -- just saying

    Don't worry. It has happened to me more times than I can count. Unlike you, I have a boss who likes to phone me right when my mood is at it's worst to ask me what is taking so long. I have come perelously close to telling him to take his job and shove it up an orifice in his anatomy that doesn't get to see much light and try doing it himself. Then I remember never to let my temper get the better of me. Stop, do something else and then come back to it later with a fresh mind :)

    If you use WD40 on a sealed bearing it will only attract more dirt. And also, if you want to hammer on the end of a bolt with an metal hammer, to prevent the threads from going bad, it is always wise to put the nut on with 75% of the threads

    I used to work at a fertilizer plant and this was a common problem...bearings would go out constantly and you could just about bet the inner race would never come off unless it had been bathed in Never Seez....the trick is, take that acetylene torch and heat the bearing race red hot and then hit the oxygen while holding the torch tip perpendicular to the collar...stay on the oxy until you trim the collar all the way across...the trick also is to heat it as quickly as you can so you don't get the shaft too hot...that way you don't nick the shaft or melt it with the torch...I got pretty good at it as I had a lot of practice...I could even melt the pillow block and the outer race out of the way without having to bust it off with a will encounter some burning grease doing that though...try it sometime with a scrap shaft with a bearing on it ...I think you'll be amazed!...Also, it's been mentioned to use a cut off wheel...that's essentially what you would be doing with the torch without the fire hazard...that method will also work if you have room to use it. Good luck!
