Do you have any interesting implements to use with your Fergie?

Yes it will be left as it is. It’s needs a new off side tyre and the chain made up to stop it dropping to far in transport or working position. I need a bigger shed as it won’t fit through the doors of mine. Didn’t think about that did i!! :lol:

Can you flat pack it and send it to Cornwall uk?

I knew the shed wasn't going to be big enough when it was built! Time for an extension!!! :dance:
or just a tidy up!

Yes sorry I forgot to put a laughing face after the flat pack comment! Might be a bit expensive on air freight anyway!! :lol:

Hi all, managed to finish the spinner on Thursday evening. i'm quite pleased with how it turned out even though it wasn't in that much of a poor condition. I made a spring to help balance the feed collar as the one that was on it broke on removal. the steel I used is only sheet steel with a very low carbon content unlike spring steel so I may have to remake this part.

We also had a family wedding to attend in Cambridge this weekend, being designated driver has its perks as i managed to shoehorn a small detour to Newport into out 780 mile round trip to pick up a Ferguson transport box, it need a little bit of repair but on collection the chap very kindly threw in the original rear door for the box!

Made a start on the transport box this evening, not as bad as I expected. Will weld some replacement sheet in. hopefully it won't be too noticeable once finished.

Hi all been busy working so not been around much on here. However with rain forecast for this weekend it was an excuse last Thursday to finish work early (perks of being my own boss) and have a play with the fertiliser spinner down the yard. I was as happy as a pig in .....!

Happy bank holiday UK members!!
