I,m Mick, and have working as a boilermaker/welder for 18years. Working production, site and maintance areas in that time. For some reason I have a renewed interest in this game, I would think because I,ve just lost my crap day job of nine years, working in industrial maintance of a large chemical plant. Regualuly making a silk purse out of a sows ear and lots of clever tricks to save the engineers a#$. I,m shore you know what I,m saying. And working above my pay rate, multi skilling blar, blar. Anyway the world is now my oyster and have had some ok job offers. I think in can make some decent money if im smart, I,m thinking about doing some contract work, and later fix up my old shed and do some work out of home, would be good. I enjoy reading the posts, see you all around.

Hi Ya Horseshoe182 and Welcome to the Welding Web Family. Wow!! We have plenty of Sidney folks here. Good luck on your shop! I have one on my farm that does ALOT of farm and heavy equipment repairs and fabrications.

Shore I can, not much to tell, but the story is, I was driving home at the end of a weeks work and these two fellas were driving down my road, its a long road. So I passed them and raced home to get my camera. I got out the front just in time to take some shots. I find these old traction engines very interesting.
photobucket won,t co-operate, an I give up, I have a couple of images, maybe tomorrow.

Those are just too cool Mick! Thanks for posting them.:drinkup:
Can you imagine seeing something like that (monster self-propelled piece of equipment) for the first time in its day?

Wow great working old tractor. Always nice to see the oldies still out there performing their jobs rather than sitting in some museum.

Thanks for all the welcomes, I,m feel at home already.
Thanks duaneb55, got the problem sorted.
Specter, these are exibit machines, as we have steam "fesitivals" from time to time, and these guys are on there way to one, but we have colour tv too,ha,ha. If you are interested, some short you tube engine clips.
