Old Iron

I went to a Ford Model A gathering Sunday, hoping for inspiration to work on my 1929 pickup. Does anybody else have projects in storage ?

 I got so many projects in Storage, that the door is jammed and I can't get in  ::) ::) ::) ::)

I kind of got a Model A Ford project going. My grandfather made a home-made skidder (what we call a jitterbug here in Maine). The motor went quite awhile ago and I have been meaning to put another motor in it and get the small beast going again, but you know how that goes. Since I already have a tractor and winch, this jitterbug thing is not high-priority.

Other than that I still got myaircraft carrier to rebuild (18 inch jointer) and was just given a 8 inch Rockwell/ Delta tablesaw to restore. My woodworking shop is filled with mostly rebuilt old woodworking machines so I have plenty to do and seems as if I am getting a reputation of being the no kill shelter of woodworking machines.  ???

'68 ford F100 is first for fixin... '76 Bronco is second, then the 99 powerstroke needs an extra turbo.  I might get a 90's mustang to turbo if I live long enough....

A '53 Studebaker truck that needs a good body man.
I can't get my body work to look as good as I think it should, and it is hard to find anyone that will work on a restoration.

'38 Chevy 1.5 ton with a hydraulic flatbed.
'50 Dodge B2 series P/U with the pilot house cab.
'86 Chevy S10 long bed P/U, I'll be scrapping this one if I get the right tractor otherwise converting into a timber hauler.
'99 Dodge Dakota long bed, I want to convert to diesel
'00 VW Beetle TDI... needs a grease car kit or prewarming for the diesel.

 Two 32 Ford Model BB`s.  Trying to make one from the two.
 A 52 ford 8N that needs a bit of TLC
 71 4500 Ford that needs Tourque conveter seal.
 57 John Deere 320 thats nice, could use a power take-off and fresh paint.

 Just scraped a 60 Willeys Ulity Wagon,
