And so it begins. I found one job for the 444 already. I usually haul a weeks supply of coal to the house in the snow bucket on my 530. But since I now have a smaller tractor to do the job I thought I would give it a try. The weather has warmed quite a bit in the last few days, and now the yard is turning into a goopy mess. The 444 hardly leaves a track in the soft dirt. My father built the trailer quite a few years ago to pull behind his Honda ATV to haul his hunting gear into the woods, and turkeys or deer on the way back out. He's in a nursing home now, so I brought the ATV and trailer out to my place. It works perfectly behind the 444.

 

I will also be going back down into Illinois to pick up a Brinly 10" plow. For $150.0-0 I can justify the two hour trip to get it.  Now I need to find a cultivator so I can weed my sweetcorn patch that I'm planning on planting this summer.

I've been kind of lazy around here. I could go out and fool with the 444, or go into my watch repair shop and finish a couple of projects there. Since the watches I'm repairing belong to me I'm in no hurry to get them done. Below are a couple of pictures of two of my watchmakers benches. One in my main assembly bench, and the other is my lather bench.

Watches----- hobby or business? Fascinating history involved with watches, part art, part mechanics, always meticulous workmanship, etc. etc.

A little of both. I do repairs for pocket watch collectors, or refurbish anything I might take a fancy to.

I had to make the little brass collet so I could put all the pieces together for this escape wheel for a pocket watch.

Do you take work thru the mail?
My kid picked up a couple a few years back and they are just sitting there.
I'd rather get them fixed someday

I can get pics and symptoms if that would help you tell me if its worth it.

I burn coal in my garage. I get it from a fella here in pei. He brought in a tractor trailer load a few years ago from Pennsylvania. They are in 50 lb bags. I buy about a dozen bags a year. Great stuff, but you have to have the right stove to burn it thou.
Nice tractor you have. Allways wanted a case.

Most of my work comes through the mail. Do the watches have a brand name on the dial? That would give me an idea whether they are worth fixing.

The coal I burn is anthracite coal, and comes from east Pennsylvania. It too comes in 50# bags. Does the bags you get have a picture of Santa Claus on them? The stove I have is a Harman, and was built to burn coal.

No Santa Claus on them, but is the same coal, around here they call it , blacksmith coal. It lasts longer and hot. I'll get a picture of one of the bags tomorrow.

I bought that brand of coal from a Amish man some years back. He bought a ton of it to heat his laying barn, but changed his mind about it. I don't remember whether he changed his mind about the egg business, or heating the barn with coal.
