Thanks for the howdy . Yeah hides been scraped off of mine also ,had 18 years as a large ag tractor mechanic for a Deere dealership in N. IL. Found out that lawnmowers were ALOT easier and more fun to work on. My repair shop is the Rusty Knuckles Garage but that's just because I'm 66 and my hands are starting to stiffen also i thought bloody knuckles might not set to well with any customers ...LOL LOLWelcome to the forum!!!
I've never had rusty knuckles, but I sure have scraped the hide off of a few knuckles.
