    Thanks nash. The other barn was quite literally a haven for junk. This shed will be very useful

    Said Junk has either been re-purposed or disposed of. My great-grand fathers slean, scythe and bicycle would want restoring at some stage. He passed away in 1949

    The junk got me thinking there now and i thought of this video that may be of interest to ye. These two gentleman would have probably made that scythe. They appear 55 seconds into the video. They were the local blacksmiths. The younger of the brothers, Dan, who is the one working the sledge in this video, ran the forge up until about 2008, until his health declined. He passed away in 2012. They had great timing not to run into one another.

    Great timing for sure. They must have been hard of hearing after years at that!

    There was 100 x 100 box iron out up to hang the track on inside the iron. I made brackets out of 40 x 40 box and a bit of angle welded on the end with a hold drilled in it to hold the rail on. Cut square holes in the iron and slid in the 40 x 40 hangers and welded them to the 100 x 100 box
