What's It Costing?

Recommended Posts

Please do NOT misinterpret this. This is NOT a case of "poor-mouthing" or asking for contributions, simply an open, honest answer for everyone to see -- I'm not keeping secrets, so now it's public knowledge....

I keep getting asked "What's all this costing?" and "How can I help?" I was asked again in Sunday night's Chat session. I appreciate your concern. So, here's the honest, open answer of what this has cost so far:

Domain Name Registration for the Simple trACtors name and URL: $70.00, good for two years, and $35.00 per year after that

Monthly Server Rental: $19.95 per month, with a 3-month minimum ($59.85 total) in order to "avoid" a one-time setup fee

Cost of the shareware discussion forum, ZpayBBS, that we're using here: $25.00, one-time

Cost of the Tripod site that we quickly outgrew: $6.00 for 6 months, $36.00 total. It will not be renewed, so the "forwarding address" will stop in June.

That's the answer. BUT, please don't try to make contributions to me -- talk with Tim. He volunteered to take on this headache (and I'm certainly grateful)! Thanks to all of you for your concern.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
