That is very thoughtful of you Matt. Maybe not necessary though, at least in that form.
It was suggested more than once that we corral all the vital lessons learned in this thread and put them into one organized place for both ourselves, and for future fellow X900 users also facing the special challenges of (successfully) owning/running/maintaining these machines. The idea makes a lot of sense, there are far too many pages in this thread to effectively find what you need. So I created MYX900.com. It's a slow build but already I've been contacted by people who have benefited greatly from it - like in excess of thousands of dollars benefited from it. While this is inspiring to me, inspiration alone won't keep MYX900.com running or building or helping people.
Like I mentioned many pages ago, I am indeed a dreamer. I do it all the time. The current dream here is that this effort supports itself, through donations. I haven't had a safe/easy system in place to accept donations until today, but it's up and running now. It's under the "FERTILIZER" tab. The page is called "MANURE REQUESTED
". I am hopeful that people who benefit from the effort will contribute to the effort. I've paid for all this up until now with my framing hammer. If we do this different from now on, together, MYX900.com will pay for itself.
This has been a great experience. I thank all of you, even those who stay quiet in the background, sincerely for your help.
