Brian. The oldies can run forever if maintained and it you can obtain parts. Anything part wise for Fergie is readily available today. I also have a Ford Diesel made by Mitsubishi. It dates from the early 60's. When something breaks locating parts for the repair is tough.

john, we had some deutzes on the farm from the 60's that were still running last I knew.

"My buddy restored an antique "little grey Fergie" and uses it all the time. How about a pic of your workhorse antique Fergie?"

Brian. When I arrived there last Friday there was 9'inches on the ground. When departing yesterday there already patches of grass showing due to the warm weather. The creeks were already getting high with melting runoff.

did you get hit hard by the snow, john?

I have three tractors. My 1950 Ferguson TO 20, two wheel drive tractor, came to the rescue. Gumby was in the city recovering from his fall. This is all may doing. I backed off the road. Gee maybe I should have unfolded the roll bar, ya think!

LOL - did that before... How did you get it out? Hope you had some strong young men to help - or a lumberjack neighbor with s "Skidder" - don't tell me Gumby drove it off the trail ...

And look at the swill he drank. Not Molson, La Batts, or my suds of choice Foster Oil Cans!

Gumby - that's what you get for drinking on the job!

While dry fitting the empennage Gumby slipped off the ladder and twisted his right ankle. The plastic surgeon has prescribed bed rest until next Tuesday. Ho humm! Poop happens!

Making things fit and align.

rayl, The blue thingie was being used to dust shelves in what was once my darkroom. The former darkroom is now a storage depository. At my current juncture in life, my nerves do not respond to the tactile stimulation of a blue thingie type device. In fact my synaptic current is suffering from old fart syndrome. I do appreciate Mr. Blue Thingie's electrostatic ability to collect dust!😂

Does Gumby need a occsional treatment with the "Blue Thingy" to inspire him? (or it for your use?)

Looks like the feathers should fit quite nicely.

A bit of empennage construction. Note the metal ruler. The "feathers" are quite large.

Gumby installed the fuselage dome thingies this day. A bit more progress. He must pace himself. His goal is completion when the rabbit arrives!

Elmer's Wood Glue🐄
LASTWOODSMAN, Comment for image # 3797511 Feb 17 17:15
John - what type of glue do you use for the fuse uprights and crossmembers - gap filling thin CA after they are clamped into position? or fast setting white glue like "Sobo" before clamping? Or, how do you do it?
John M Oshust, Image # 3797511 Feb 17 13:19

I convinced Gumby to stay home and toil.

Gluing and squaring... progress!
