Just curious what the other members are planning on working on or building this winter. I have a tiller that I picked up earlier this year that I would like to have field ready for the spring. I also have a canoe that I started a few years ago that I got side tracked on that I would like to finish. What do the rest of you have in the works?

i have some tin work to do on my tractors. Since I have a mountain of spare time I will start with the hood. The "bug catcher" is removed, gaping hole remains

There is also a piece missing from engine pulley on my SS16 that keeps belt from jumping off when blower disengaged. I would like to make now that i've seen one.

Repair a husqvarna xp288 chain saw that blew up this fall. Put new blades on my fathers Rockwell beaver jointer, that I being going to do for a few years now. But as we know, if the winter is bad, I will be working on the tractors to keep running for the next snow storm. Noel

Now that I have a shed to house all the tractors, I have a lot of house updates to do. If I get them done, I will sneak in a tractor and start cleaning it up. need to get one ready for plow day in the spring. I only have one tractor ready for snow removal so I hope to get another one or two ready first.

It's been so warm here that most of my winter projects are already finished. Cabin fever should be setting in in the next few weeks :loosing_it:

Great,, small project popped up. #1 son head gasket went. I will only be Executive Supervisor and sandwich maker but it will be busy. Parts are in Friday. Lifting head was awkward. I told them. "Listen to the guy in back brace ,,use cherry picker"

Front loader needs a lot of maintenance stuff, new hoses, etc...Then I have living room wall that apparently needs an "accent" color painted on it. I was unaware of the need, but it was pointed out to me. Then I have 3 ramps that need to be be better suited to their jobs. I'll find enough to do.

Don't have much planned, except to repaint the hood on my JD 40.

 

I know a guy that has an LGT pedal tractor on his carport that would make me a good winter project, but haven't convinced him to sell it to me  ------------- yet!!! :wallbanging:    :D   :D    :D

Maybe you can bribe Santa to grab it for you while he's up there!
