    If you got the belt driven mill and a hit or miss gas engine you would be stepping right back into the 1930s!

    I think my WD has a belt pulley on it, or the ability to add one. I will have to look into it

    that is sad Holms. What a special Grandma and this is one I won't forget. I hope I never have to use it but isn't it a truism?

    If the pulley is flat it is for a tractor if it is for several smaller belts it is for electric, but I think you could switch it to work either way.


    You might even be able to convert it to PTO.

    Is your WD a body part? Or is it mechanical? cluck - cluck - cluck

    Good Morning to you all! It feels balmy outside today. Maybe I will get a walk in with the dogs. They would love that.

    I will be around but in and out of reading.

    Cyrus - did you have the job interview yet and if so, how did it go?

    I need COFFEE

    Its gonna be a good day - especially for a dog to have surgery and be spoiled on the couch afterwards. Can she drink from a straw. Then she only needs to get up to relieve herself. Ouch!

    That would be my Allis Chalmers WD45 tractor. I'm the 4th generation owner of it :)

    Ralphie,

    Are your CX eggs light tan with lots of darker spots on them?
