    That's a lovely tradition gone, fair play to you and the family for keeping that going :Thumbp2:

    What make is the binder do you know @gone? There is the remnants of an Albion binder in the uncles front garden and he took a notion recently of wanting to pull it out and get it working. I'd love to do it (it was 1 of 2 my grandfather had. Other one is even further gone) but the fact I've never seen them working up close and the fact that parts of the frame are so far gone, I'd nearly be inclined to leave it to see out the rest of its days where it is

    It is a McCormick IH binder.
    I would be very difficult getting the perishable parts for such a binder and you really need someone who has worked them to get them going.

    I posted in the wrong thread and moved the post, so sorry about the disappearance of the post.
    It is a very old trial plot combine, very basic not a lot of it left, but it does it job.

    A bit of a sad day here, the first time in over 60 years that corn will be sown by someone else.

    Yes it is from F Jenkinson, but I'm not sure if he traded anything, but not the JD anyway.

    No matter what acre I'm in, I tend to have a collie in close attendance.
    I don't miss the sheep, but would miss the dog.
