Looks good...

I did try to attach a picture and failed. Might have just been me. I couldn't find an "attach" button after picking the pic. I'll just keep working on the small learning curve.

The guy that posted the picture on Facebook said that there was a platform on the other side  where a half dozen workers stood to place the bricks obviously it moved very very slowly but is far less back-breaking than doing it on the ground.

I like some of the odd stuff. I note that this one has a Sherman in it. I can't tell by looking if it is an over drive, an under drive or a three range (O-Std-U)? Given its style I suspect over drive.  :)

OK, maybe I need to wax it again...
I have had this a while and done nothing with it yet. It was given to me by a neighbor. I believe it is a better tractor than it looks like. Other than the bent steering shaft everything that is there works. Even both turning brakes (at least one is almost always stuck). The steering itself is good and I have carefully turned it by hand checking all of the gears and everything feels quite good. A lot of these old WC's (this one was styled) have been trashed in the tranny from running  brush cutters so surely an engine should not be to hard to find pretty cheap. I might even do something more imaginative if I get a chance but there are too many delayed jobs in the pipe ahead of it for now.
Multi year health problems can really wreak havoc on scheduling of any kind. It gets really hard to catch up as the more laid up you get the faster stuff manages to quit on you.:(

Tossing this out for discussion. I had not seen any of these before except for cars.
I'm pretty sure that I need one.  :)
I believe I might want to make it a bit beefier since a number of my tractors are a little heavy like my Farmall Super M, the Super MTA, the 400-LP and the MF-165. I also believe that I would want heavier casters.
Since my shop floor slopes a little excessively (bad decision at the time of pouring) I would want very positive locking casters.
As you can see it is adjustable in length and you can also adjust the width of the rear axle supports. Just looks like a good idea. It also appears that it is easy to break-down for storage.
I'm on a lot of tractor sites and I am always amazed at how many tractors I see being worked on sitting on concrete blocks turned the wrong way (as if there is a right way :eek:).

:) :) :)
Took me a while to get sorted out but I made it. BTW, thanks for the info Gene.
The next step is posting pictures I guess. I'm a picture person. I may screw this up a few times...
