Started assembling some of the attachments. Boy what a difference sandblasting makes. Everything just goes right together.

 

I need to sandblast the cultivator shovels and some other things I missed.

 

Re-fabricated the adjuster cranks and they work great.

 

Need to do some more painting but I have got the bulk of the hard work done. I clear coated all the pulleys.

 

Reel mower was green when I got it so I went with green on that. I still need to make the hardwood rollers.

 

I got the tractor together mostly too. I have to fabricate the lower idler arm. I'll post more pics on that later

LOL, well I can tell you a bit about how they come apart and go back together that's for sure but there are many here that have forgotten more than I'll ever know it seems. 

 

I have yet to power an implement and yes, the spring will be interesting. Lots of adjustments and testing. I need to find my good proving ground!
