I've seen several tables made out of old tractors. They don't use everything. Find out if he has any parts left over you wold like to have them back. Buyers remorse will heal just think about what you done for your daughter.

Any pictures,would like to see

Well, I think you'll be ok, but i can understand the shock. Give it 6 months and get to work on the other ones. If i were you, id Save a little from the profits to seed the parts fund and then the rest as you mentioned, is going to the best place.

I wouldn't sweat it at all if I were you. The funds are going to the right place and like you said, you can always restore the other ones if you want. You were very lucky to find one buyer instead of having to sell them one by one. It's understandable that you are feeling a bit of remorse, but that will pass. New projects will give you something to look forward too, so pick one and get to it! You might want to try looking for an old oddball brand tractor to restore. In my opinion, prices are extremely reasonable on many of the old machines from the 40's and 50's. Most were built like tanks and would cost a fortune to produce today. Whatever you choose to do, don't look back!

Its was sort of the same feeling as losing a pet,

 

For over 10 grand I would sell my pet, heck I would sell off some family members for that kind of $$$$.

  After you get on a first name basis with each nut bolt screw and washer they become like friends. It might help to consider that with that kind of money invested they will be well cared for.   Don
