Default Hello from Somerset

Hello from a new member.

I'm quite often seen wondering around at some of the many agri shows in the South Somerset/Dorset area, during the season.
Just love to see all the old machinery out on show and running

So I have just acquired a Lister 26DH to get clean up and get running.
It's not been run for around 40 years so I am led to believe.

Welcome aboard, I started out by looking round the shows and bought my first engine this year, soon joined by another, it's addictive!.

Don't worry, your garage won't get full, that's why we have sheds

After I acquired my first engine I began collecting small plastic boxes, yoghurt cartons and the like to store small parts in. Latest purchase was a chain hoist to get the heavier stuff up onto the bench.

Yep.

Thankfully I have a fair few tools, odd pots/jars/boxes and an engine hoist already.
