Fordson Major rebuild, finishing off the steering swivels/king pins, and the track rod and drag link, and Richard turns up with my kitchen unit so I spend a couple of days fitting kitchens and plumbing! YUK. but I plough on and get it more or less finished. It will really make a difference to be able to wash the cups and fill the kettle in the same room where I make tea!
It's still warm and sunny in East Yorkshire!

Do you do all your spray painting in your shop and if you do, how do you manage to keep the over spray off everything ?

I am using an oil based paint, which is heavy and falls straight to the floor, and a HVLP (high volume low pressure) gun, the paint does settle, but as dust as opposed to cellulose, which is a much lighter paint, which gets everywhere. I also open the large roller shutter door and the windows at the other end of the building, which open into a narrow street which gives me an airflow which carries the paint dust (what bit there is) out of the door , afterwards I sweep up and blow the shelves down and it is all gone! It doesnt stick like cellulose does. When I used to spray a lot of cellulose I had a big extractor and air inlet filters.

Fordson E1A major Rebuild. So we get more paint on, in order to fit the seat, and the radiator, and then find that despite all my efforts, new Dynamo refuses to output a single volt, even though I have polarised it and it is brand new!, then I go to change the fuel filter, and find that there isnt an element in it! Things can only get better....I hope. Still it did start and run perfectly, so cleaning the bowl out and putting a filter in it can only make it better!
