You have a potentially nice tractor. Here is a picture of a carry all on my '51. You can buy the frame at many implement dealers and make the
rest yourself.

Very similar to what I was thinking. Thank You. I like how you have designed it so the sides come off/on. That would make the flat platform I'm thinking the grooms could feed from.

Now that I know to look for the terms "Carry All" there's lot's of options.

I have an old Monarch lathe that is much older. I always figured it was about WWI vintage. Has about a 6 foot bed on it. Flat belt driven from overhead shaft. I have an electric motor overhead on it now. Always wanted a manual for it but have not found one I can afford.

Here's a manual on eBay.

This was the project for the weekend. To get to chassis off the wheels so I can focus on the wheels and call them done.








It's always better when it starts going back together instead of coming apart.

Wow, where did you get that rolling frame to put the chassis on? I would love to get one! I just got a 1941 Ford 9N last Friday and looking forward to my first project to dismantle everything and restore.

I made it myself, so unfortunately it's not something you can just buy.

I just built it to fit. I really don't have a dimensioned drawing or something. It just picks up the fender mounts and the front axle pin. That and a few casters and you're on your way.

I can not get it in my head why you chose to use the front axle pin...

Well I approached it like this.

What's the strongest attach point on the forward end? The factory attach point for the axle. I wanted a huge safety factor so I can roll it over all kinds of stuff without worrying about the attach point failing. I wanted to be able remove everything to allow me to paint. Which brings us to what I see as to the one downside of using the axle pin which is I cannot paint in the recess below it Sad This I'll have to touch up after I pull it off the dolly before I install the axle and the rest of the front end. I figured that was a good trade, a little touch up painting for a very robust mounting point.

Is there a particular reason why you think it's a bad attach point? Something I haven't thought of???
