Auction finds.

Recommended Posts


Over the past week and a half I have been to 2 auctions. At the first one I bought an A frame and 2 heavy chain falls; plus a bar fridge and a heater for my trailer build. Fridge was $35, heater for $2 and two sets of chain falls on the A frame for $50.I have been looking for awhile for an A frame or metal to build one. Bought this one on one bid. Here are the A frame and c f's pics. I already had a heavy set and they are hanging on frame. Two sets on floor will be sold. 






At the second auction I bought 2 Vauxhall engines for $5 each and a bolt bin and all the contents for $85. Pic of bin still in the truck tonight is a bit dark but I think you can get an idea of what I got. This bin is actually six 12 compartment bins attached together so I may break it up and hang on the wall in several spots.

Greg; no, just runs on the floor. It moves easy with no load but i want casters in case I want to move a heavy load sideways. I am also going to make the cross pieces between the legs a bit longer for more stability. I can afford to spend a bit of time and money on it as I got it dead cheap. LOL.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
