all the plans, drawings, patents, renderings and dies and tooling that were used to make our various GTs of interest here on GTtalk.
I long wondered what has become of all of these things. I know you can search the US Patent office but I've not been able to find much on the Homelite brand other than there being a dispute about Textron and some one claiming to have already used the Homelite brand before them.
Just got to thinking that where did all those dies that made the parts and pieces go to. Are we now driving some of them? If you think really hard and take some time to day dream you could also dream that somewhere in America there is a secret warehouse that holds all of the dies, tooling and papers of each and every GT or walk behind ever made. Further dreaming brings up images of dust covered crates that hold one each of every model of our prized tractors. They had been set in this secret warehouse to be left for us to find all these years later. To be opened and found to be in new and untouched condition for all these 60 plus years. Somewhere in that warehouse is a massive filing system , also left for us to discover, that holds all of the drawings, specs, patents and plans on a design, production and manufacturing these beauties.
Now to reality, I realize that I have a case of cabin fever and I need to stop thinking about this and go out and rotate the battery chargers on all 14 of the batteries I have for all the GTs and other tractors and 4 wheelers. Still it was, is, fun to think about this subject.
Thanks for letting me ramble on this cold sunny winter Sunday morning. Hope you have a great rest of you Sunday and a better week coming up. Roger
