Workshop Upgrade

The museum workshop are has recently been iproved by the concreting of the remainder of the floor.  This ha smean a reorganisation of the area and allows for an extra four bays for restoration works etc.

 New equipment is being utilised to assist members in their work, including a new sandblasting outfit which will be supplied with air from an 18 cubic foot compressor.

 The four-post hoist which has posed a problem in the past, will now be set up in an area of the workshop that has a raised roof.  This area formerly housed the Connor Shea header.

 A new washbasin with hot water is under way and will be an added benefit for members.

Bushcraft At Its Best

 

A fantastic item of bushcraft was unearthed at Ron Denny’s clearing sale on Friday 5th Sept. This took the form of a forked tree branch.

The legs of the fork were pinned to the shaft brackets and the tongue was fitted with a bar bolted on and included a drawbar pin hole. A very effective means of pulling the wagon around with possibly one of the remnants of tractors that were included in the sale.

I felt it would be criminal to let this pass without due comment - such examples are getting very rare.

Stock Crawler Tractor

Early last year a Museum member decided that he would move to live overseas. He had a large collection of photographs, books etc plus numerous tools and sundry items that he did not wish to take with him when he moved. These items were donated to the Museum along with a partly restored German Stock Crawler Tractor  - including $1,000 to assist with the cost of the restoration.
