  1. A FEW More Newby Hall.

    I wonder what the winch is used for on the Ferrari?
  2. Ride-on Tractor lift

    Did you get the bench grinder as well? It looks as if it was a seat lifting mechanism from something like a combine harvester should be a useful bit of kit.

  4. Help with Ransomes parts

    Try contacting Ransomes Textron they are in Ipswich and may be able to tell you which of their dealers still carries parts for these machines. I have ordered parts through Rickerby ltd. in Carlisle. Failing that order from USA shipping small parts is not that expensive.

  6. Tillotson MD-17A Alternative

    Neil Jarrett ( Ransomes 256 ) has been working on 3d printed plastic floats it may be worth contacting him.
  7. Kohler Recoil help please

    Once you have soaked the spring in plus gas or similar see if you can sneak a couple of fine tie wraps or twist wire around the spring in situ this will enable you to prise it out without it going boing all over your workshop.
  8. Happy Birthday Expeatfarmer

    Thank you one and all. Kept it quiet because I only had a small cake! Excellent show, shame about the caterer but that was out of Mark's hands they are supplied by the venue and thought they knew best. I don't know where it will end because every show I go to the standard of finish on the restored tractors becomes more extreme although I did notice that there are now "rat tractors" on display lacquered over the patina. Well worth a trip in future years and holiday inn is right on the site.

    Dishwashers are a very useful workshop tool, that and the ovens of Aga's. I also use a food mixer for stirring paint!
