  1. NYS Pageant of Steam 2018

    Some nice machinery there, Mike. Thanks for posting.
  2. I did at Newby hall. He doesn't say much though. Couldn't get a word out of him.
  3. Rural past times

    Had a good show and also good to catch up with friends not seen since last year. I've taken a few photo's but they'll have to wait till next week when I'm home. I'm on Chris's lap top. Got a couple of nice surprises this afternoon, on my return from playing in the potato patch. The C-81 got 1st in class, (Again!) The Sears/Roper got 2nd. Alan's Mini D is really something to see and drew many admiring comments and looks. Just to give you a chuckle, I went to get my phone from out of the Disco, to tell SWMBO the good news about the tractors. Only I couldn't find it. Then I had a thought. I got Chris to phone me. Just as I thought, we heard my phone ringing from INSIDE MY PACKED AWAY popup tent.
  4. Rural Past Times, August 11/12

    Trailer loaded? Check! Disco loaded? Check. All ready to roll come morning.
  5. A Day Dosing

    I don't want it! I've got my own.
  6. This year was the 12th year this has been held. Not bad for what was intended as a one off. Each year it seems to grow a bit with craft stalls, horses, static displays and other attractions. . I've only been involved for the last 8-9 years helping with the organising and setting up. I have never plough there though, as for the last 5yrs it clashed with my annual foray darn sarf to RPT and Biddenden. This year I could attend so entered. Unfortunately only two people entered with horticultural tractors. Myself with the C-121 (Black Horse) and a friend with a Raider 12 and ex, expeatfarmer Ransomes drag plough. So we decided to just have a play. Blind leading blind. Unfortunately due to the prolonged dry weather, the ground was quite hard. Not the mention stoney. My plough would hardly break the surface. So we just played with the drag plough. That would, due to it's weight, cut in. After several adjustments, trials and errors we manage to get a decent furrow. As my friend is badly crippled, Lewis my number 3 grandson did the driving, to save Ian getting on and off. Not many photo's sorry to say, but I was busy being mechanic. Some of the field and the view across the Solway Firth to Scotland. Ian, Lewis and Billy the collie. Lewis ploughing for the first time. It was a good day and I think the best attendance by the general public so far. I did get a surprise and very unexpected. The C-81 got another rosette. That makes two 1st's and a second.
  7. HALF a HORSE.

    Very smart, Alan. And I can't say on here what those spindle caps remind me of.
  8. Wheel horse 512-D restoration

    Going to be a shame to use it, Scott.
  9. international historical festival panningen

    Some interesting machines there, Koen. Thanks!
  10. Piston rings

    Unleaded petrol, unlike leaded, doesn't keep for very long. I've used two year old leaded without problems in the past.
  11. HALF a HORSE.

    Yeah! Maybe you won't fall over again.
  12. All the Best, Ethan. Have a good day.
  13. HALF a HORSE.

    Getting there, Alan. Best get a move on though. Only two weeks to go RPT.
  14. GOLD!

    Wanlockhead is nearer to me than the Plooman. Just a good few miles over the border. Now where's me snorkel?
  15. Clean up

    I used to use Tractol a lot some years back. It's an agricultural enamel. Quick drying and tough. Painted my competition Land Rovers with it. Brush and roller. Not sure if you can still get it. An alternative is an agricultural enamel called Tor.
