Sold my White 2055 today and later saw it for sale at guy's site for MORE than I had on it! Sheesh!  Had a few nibbles on big MM R and bought an old Yamaha golf cart that runs/drives, but needs some body panels. Gonna need the upper front end and the rear pan/fender combo, which is said to be laying on I-70 somewhere, blew off while transporting?? That front panel has lights put in it, but cut poorly. Bought a small metal band saw. Sold some tires and few little items. Pretty good day really. Here's pix of our site. Golf cart SHOULD look like this one, but this is not mine. I'll get pix when home. Is there CArt junkyards??

I've had that happen before, buy from me and even left the sign on it. Just rolled it down to his spot and upped the price.
I wouldn't have been upset, except he beat me up on the price and more or less told me to get lost when i mentioned that.
I get to quite a few shows and talk to more than few people at them. In hindsight, that move may not have been economically advantageous for him...

Nato: Not sure size at moment, but weighs a LOT!  Had too big of center hole for most people. It is sold, just not picked up yet. We don't actually know what it is off of, I guess.

I'm wondering if it wasn't from a line shaft in a factory or a mill. We'll probally never know.

 

I found a (what I think it is) expansion wheel for a old steam engine. I've tried to figure out what is from but with no luck. The thing is over 5' tall and 18" wide and weighs around 800#. It will be the center piece of the yard at home one day soon.

yep! Bill and wife came to our spot often to sit down and rest awhile. Stan was couple spots down from us with narrow front PK that is pretty cool!  Lots of the Economy's there didn't sell I guess, many leaving on same trailer they came in on today. Was still kinda misty wet till noonish , then warmed up and sunny. Never saw Muddy messed roadways go to hard pack dry dirt so fast! You wouldn't even know it had rained there by supper time. I 'm still going back in Sat AM to pick up my last Moline and 990. Was close to selling both the big MM's today, just not quite! Not many lookers at the 990, or some lookers but no one making offers. Most of our stuff is gone home today, but will go in am as noted, maybe a sale?? Here's some pix and more Panzer's. One is nice for $500 and other Penn version not so nice, but still $500. A nice Economy set-up for $1500 didn't look too bad.  An old Sears and another Sears with Mods and disc and culti attachments, wheel weights/chains, only $300. Looked like newer engine, OHV type put on that, too high for hood?

Other than the Colts being on it that thing would be pretty cool to use to scoot around on at the tractor shows. Hope everyone at the show is having a great time.

Finished up today, many leaving after 2:00. I had to leave and get Mama back for work. Sold my Farm King right away today, ran the R MM for a few times, no real close interests. Loaded and left by 2"00 also. Was lot more people there than I thought would be, was real nice sunny, yet not hot day. Lots of trucks and wagons leaving with New purchases. Prices come down last day, less to load, OR, room for what THEY bought to go home. This is a SWAP-Meet.   Sell your stuff, buy their stuff!  My buddy sold all his left over stuff yesterday and didn't come back for Sat. Was pretty busy show all week, hadn't been this good in awhile. Was glad to be there. I am about "tractored" out for awhile tho. I kinda stay out of shop for awhile and get back into it later.
