Looks great. Always had a soft spot for the style of the crop master. Your carry all reminds me of one we have at home. I went to load the Allen Auto scythe on it to cut tree breaks and it fell thru the boards. Problem is a carry all takes up to much shed space for the average farmer and so it gets left outside in the rain.

Hello Cobba
David's looking as flash as a rat with a gold tooth. So shiny.
Now don't tell me you took David to the lookout to flog the BBQ pit. You didn't. Did you?
You better chuck a coat of jam on the carryall before you put some more boards on it. It looks a bit daggy

We stand ours on it's edge in the corner of the hay shed. We can't use it in a hurry as there's some old outboards hanging off the edge of the carryall floor now.

Cheers Scott

After machining up a new pair of mounting pins out of a high tensile steel, then making some new brackets to mount the pins on then finally welding the lot in place yesterday, today I went to attach it.
BUGGA
Put the pins on the wrong side and they are too far apart to fit David. So this afternoon was spent cutting off the stuff up and made it ready to weld them in the right place tomorrow.

Murphies Law strikes again.

What was left of the timber would not have held a bucket full of feathers. By the time I knocked what was left out I was left with a pile of splinters. Might offer them to the old pensioners next for kindling to satrt their fire box. Hope they are quick to use it incase of termites.

Hello Cobba
I've found getting those sorts of pins from the tractor shop is easier on the nerves. BareCo make a variety of sizes.

Cheers Scott

I emjoyed the exercise in making them Scotty but I did buy a Cat 2 pin today to use with the carry-all. I have an issue with the 3 point linkage set up which I will delve into after the rally but in short I had to use a different hole in the carry-all for the top link arm to fit and these is a larger hole than the cat 1. I found that David Brown must have known about my problem and put a ball in the bottom of the linkage arm that rotates and takes both cat 1 n 2 size pins. Guess what, I ahd to machine 2mm off the OD to get it to fit into the ball hole so back onto the lathe.
