1950 Farmall H and how it is used for metalworking (Moving the 1942 14x54 Hendey lathe bed into the basement through the window)
WOW! The things people put in their basements. AND, how they do it. :thumbsup:

I watched a show where a guy put a entire locomotive in his basement. Most of it went down in pieces but a few parts had to go in a hole he cut in the wall.

not all that much to show, I'm afraid... and not a one of them particularly practical

'37 Allis WC


homebrewed Oil Pull "pup"
P8310001.jpg

1917 Twentieth Century Mfg Co 25HP


The sad, shot-up remains of an 18HP rear mount, heavy haulage Buffalo-Pitts which will donate it's wheels to the 20th Century someday (soon, I hope)


Kimmee's '45 Farmall H


And this isn't quite a "tractor"

Michael, The H is purple because the owner wanted it that way (there are about 1/4 million red cookie cutter ones - this one folks stop and look at). It might just slow down the He-Man joyriders from 'borrowing' it, too. Plus, as a bonus, it really annoys the obnoxious purists. Kimmee tells them if they don't like it, then they can BUY it from her (at HER price) and paint it any bloody color they want! If you'd seen how rough it was when we got it ($250 tractor), you'd say it looks real nice now. The grille was built up from 2 trashed ones. Somebody had sawed the manifold in half then "fixed" it with exhaust putty... it took us months to find one we could afford. We still need one new(er) rear rim and a generator that works, but it runs and drives.

Chris, the pup was built as practice project in welding school. The engine is a '35 IHC LA *(that was actually factory green), the front end is a cut down IHC horse forecart I found in a junkpile at an Amish auction. The rear wheels are from an IHC horse drawn mowing machine. The transaxle is an "Eclpse" 4 speed from a Murray lawn tractor. The steering box is from an Allis B. All that weight and I still had to put a 60# block of lead in the "radiator" to keep the front end from floating.

It won "Best of Show" as a "recycling project" at the county fair back in '97

I kinda like purple tractors, not something you see every day!

I always go with what it was originally. Since this looks like a industrial model it was probably ford industrial yellow. Let us know what it goes for.

Just got out bid. It is 250 miles away and they said it ran when they pulled it out of service but I can't be sure. I want this old guy, just not sure if it is worth it. It is at $960.00 right now. I will probably take up to a grand at the last moment. A cleaned up one goes for about $3,500.00 around these parts. Decisions, Decisions. Oh well I will sleep on it.

Well seeing how I don't live on a farm or a ranch anymore this tractor is the only I get to play with as long as I take it from Grandson's and all 4 of them together are getting hard to handle. 41AWvURS7ML__SX385_.jpg

Watch bidding fees on auctions, Im registered for a insurance auto auction and the fees are ridiculous. Those are good tractors, I wouldn't be to worried about going more then that. It doesn't appear to be in bad shape and with a horizontal exhaust you don't have to worry about eater getting into the engine. If it sat outside id drain the hydraulic oil right away.

Ok, I know she's small but she was brand new in 2012. Complete with bagging system. I hope to get a snow blower attachment next year for these northeast ohio winters! GO CUB CADET!!!

Got it $1,440.00. Now I need to get it home and start in on it. I don't know whether to be happy, or sad.

Keep thinking you screwed up on it and it will work out in the end. If you think you got a steal you will put more into it then what its worth. Thats how it worked for me in the past.

If you ever find a tractor that needs a lot of parts you will find out real quick the $1400 is cheap for a whole tractor.

Looks like plenty of storage space for that cost. in the past few years the cost of a pole barn has went crazy.

Well, I got her home. She was living in Alamogordo New Mexico which is an Air Force Base Town. She had originally been an Air Force tractor but the school district ended up with her. It was used for city park maintenance until they got a landscape division 4 years ago. She has been parked since then. We aired up the tires, put a battery and a little gas and drove her up on the trailer. That made me happy. Alamogordo is right next to White Sands Missile Range, so they are are not afraid to light it up. While we where loading the tractor, two F-22 Raptors went screaming right over our head and broke the sound barrier. Way Cool! Anyway, 450 miles later she is home. My Case 440 L is named Casey, so we named the new Ford tractor Deborah after my wife.

Tractors and old equipment are my true passions. That is why I have machine tools, too fix the old guys.
