... due to the need to eat tea



got a load of gussets to fit yet ...



and then a good fettle to lose any sharps I've created in the 'nailing together' process.

so shocked to have shirt sleeves temp.s today, I forgot to fit some sleeves to the arms, stitching it all up .... ..... not suffering, but the arms have had enough UV radiation for today ..... and tomorrow

Must remember to put a jacket on next time

Don't mind the warm weather but I hate getting my machinery full of dust

BTW for those in the soggy UK, dust is dirt which has been baked for months until completely dry. It is then dug up or disturbed by machinery so as to become airborne over your work area. It apparently has no calories

no need to rub our noses in it Dave

Ahh ok I've seen the skid-steer and tractor mounted ones before but I never knew anybody made a walk behind version. Must be kinda dangerous to be around when its in action.

Rotates forwards Bert and pushes everything forward and to one side. Does quite a decent job ...... just needs an improved rear wheel system ... the jockey wheels are real a 'Heath' cobble TBH ... spoils a good machine
