Jim's Junk

Recommended Posts

Met Mark (meadowfield) last night. Top guy, could have spent a couple more hours talking, but night was well upon us!

He asked if I would pop a few pics up of the bits and bobs that are kicking about here. Sadly it was quite dark so we didnt have time to play with anything.

First is a loader/backhoe based on a 312-8. I think it took me about a year to do both. I think I started the loader when I was 16.

And to prove I did make the bucket! (BTW, Westwood Gazelle chassis are a good source of 3mm plate!)

This is a picture of the hydro tractor.

And the office.....

There are plenty of other bits and bobs lying about in the weeds. Actually looking through my photos to find them uncovered some pictures I had forgotten about!

thanks for sharing the pictures - I'm sure the others will appreciate it too!

I'm also jealous of the office :thumbs2:

I'm surprised I wasnt banned for putting a picture of a Deere up!

(PS, is it just me or is this site impossibly slow most of the time, I havent been able to load it for a few days).

I think we all noticed...

the forum has been down for almost 3 days, and outside that it has been incredibly slow. Slower than dial up speed!!!

can't believe a Bolens with a loader gets more coo's and ahhh's than a horse with a loader and backhoe!!!

Just managed to get back on. You cant fix computers with a hammer, so I leave them alone!

I think we have our own private thread. Quick, lets say rude things about people and see how long it takes them to notice :dunno:

btw the 2nd C-105 has been running but the piston is absolutely stuffed, my brother is rebuilding as I type!!!!

It's going to look fantabulous... he's really going to town on this one :dunno:

The other C-105 is getting a few parts sandblasted, but still waiting for a garage to rebuild it in!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Neil,

the internet can be such a cruel place! :dunno:

yes, tractors are coming on - I would do better if I had a garage... I'm working on them outside like you and unfortunately they are all living outside.

glad I made you smile! :dunno:

Neil, hope you and your family managed to avoid the terrible accident that happened on the M5 last night. We have friends who were stuck in the tailbacks.

Can I interest anyone in a Landrover? I just got a new(ish) one and need to sell the older ones.

Actually, both are old enough to export, any of you US guys want a proper car?

I seem to have built up a collection, the red one must go, the green one should go but I'm a bit attached to it!

Seems like this is the English chatroom!!

I remember Miths loader/backhoe project from when he built it years ago! But then he disappeared for a long time, as did a lot of the pictures of the build.

I'm glad to see you back Mith!

Ditto, I remember reading about the FEL/backhoe/312 way back when here at RS, then you got into the articulated 4x4 build on another site.

Good to see your still with us Jim.

PS nice collection of Land Rovers
