Finished up some cardinal skull lockets.  Cast in bronze from life-size skulls, used JB Weld to secure the magnets.  Turns out Health Canada has banned sales of small rare earth magnets since I designed these things, so sourcing magnets now from the US...
I miss bronze casting.  These are great.

Did not build it this week, but I did get it going this week! After cleaning the carbi (petrol engine) and the magneto points, plus 75ltr of oil, 50ltr in the diff alone! ;D

A bit of a video with it working.

Bit dry on the farm at the moment! :(

A bit dry.  Fark, and summer hasn't arrived yet.  That doesn't look good mate.  Hope the dams are full or rain is coming.

Love the old grader though.  That's cool.

Yeh not good, but luckily we have set up a water supply from a permanent river 4km away, so we always have water. Just got to feed the stock and put up with a couple of thousand kangaroos eating what feed remains!

Old grader goes well, but she will never do the ton!
Cheers

Well not with that kind of thinking, she won't!

I sure it could move a ton or two.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

That old grader is a nice piece!  Great to see someone take an old relic like that and keep it productive.

That's the way to do it when you have that much to maintain. I noticed that the driving element looks like a common farm tractor adapted to use. In India, they mount John Deere teactors on their rice harvesters to make an integrated unit.

Spot on, it used a Fordson E27N tractor. This one is petrol / gasoline and the later ones had the Fordson Major with the Perkins diesel engine.

Hope to get into working on the IT200 soon.
