I'm new here just wanted to break the ice I have a couple pics to share to get the ball rolling

Jd 140 I bought for $300 it only has 536 hrs been siting in a barn for 15 years I've not had it long so I'm putting a little money here and there and gradually going restore it a little at a time

And albeit not a good pic a 110 I bought this past sat. It was raining hard and I was getting drowned it so I didn't spend long getting a good pic I got it for $100 going pick it up Tuesday I didn't have time to on sat it going to be restored as well. It in running condition was a trade in for newer tractor

Some tire chains I made for the 140 pics on the tractor will follow in a couple days when I get a chance to take them

And not a Deere but my father in laws cub 126 I'm helping restore

More pics of the 110 to follow when I get it

Nice tractors. Maybe you could post some larger pics of your chains. I'd be interested in hearing how you made them.

I will do that I'll have some pics tomorrow of them on the tractor I just finished them up yesterday I will however say they originally was a project to save money because they wanted $80 at a local place that carries them and I could have got them online for I think $45 $15 shipping I have about $75 into mine but they heavier chain I'm thinking than anything I would have bought

They easy to make measuring kinda a pain though

I had a JD 140 H1 for about 20 years, and loved it. I also made chains for it, and kept them when I sold the 140. I'm hoping to adapt them to fit my 318. I made the chains from a couple of sets of old car chains I picked up at an auction.

Yeah I made mine from 3/16 chain they wasn't bad to make really I was thinking about posting how I made them but I'm sure that has been covered already here
I got varying prices on them from different places and they had to be ordered and I just don't like buying with out seeing if I can so decided to just make them myself. It was a fun little project pain in the rear a couple times but cures cabin fever
