    Right place, right time.

    Just passing Coningsby the other day, so thought I’d pull in near the BBMF to eat my lunch, shame I didn’t get to hear them.

    Strange Harrow ! Any ideas ?

    A friend rescued these harrows from going in a skip, but we’ve never seen any like this before. Zig zag frames are common, but these are just straight. There are hinges in the middle to join them together, and two small rings for towing, on the front and rear, but they’re offset. The tines don’t...

    Help me identify these keys.

    Found a key ring with these three on it. Obviously the top one is easy, but no idea on what the middle on could be for. No number or identifying marks on it either. The bottom thing is some sort of gauge maybe ? It has an 8 on it, and the gap is 8mm wide. Any ideas please.

    Has Putin won regarding our heritage ?

    Some are saying the ‘snowflake’ brigade have gone mad. I can understand not glorifying war, but I see events like these as educational and a way to remember the fallen. These events surely went ahead when our troops were in Iraq and Afghanistan ! I had the privilege to know several people that...

    Seat belt repair.

    Got a couple of lap type seat belts in an old vehicle. The female buckle on one of them works just fine, but the trim on it has gone. Does anyone know of a seat belt repair specialist, who may replace the male and female parts ? I appreciate the actual belting will probably need replacing as well.

    Massey Ferguson 1200 Lime Spreader.

    A conversion done by a good friend of mine in the 80’s in Lincolnshire, for a local contractor. It was later sold and went somewhere in Yorkshire. According to DVLA, the tractors reg’ no’ NFU 422M is currently taxed, and due again in August this year. It has probably been converted back to a...

    Fast and farmer ( ish) programme !

    Coming to BBC3, twin beacon and CB aerials at the ready. I just hope it’s a show about the safer side of handling machinery by our younger farming community rather than the collar up phone in hand brigade.

    John Deere during 2021.

    Not surprised really, and I think many will follow suit. No doubt massive amounts of planning required, but how can we plan anything.

    YouTube on iPad, can anyone help please ?

    When I click on the YouTube app, the home screen usually shows a dozen or so recommended videos, but now it only wants to show one over the full screen. Pretty sure I’ve not changed any settings, as I usually leave that to the younger generation, being not very tech savvy with this stuff. Is...

    Tractors in Canada and America.

    A lot of interesting videos about of farmers working across the pond. One thing I’ve noticed though is that I never seem to see any farm tractors or combines with number plates on. I have a few old USA number plates hung in the shed, which are obviously from cars, and I appreciate that many...

    12 V air horn.

    Need to put a new horn on a vehicle, and need one with a tad more oomph than standard. The vehicle has no air supply, but I’ve seen some truck like air horns with their own compressor, and they don't seem too expensive either. Anybody got or fitted one ? Any good, or get what you pay for ?

    Midlands Machinery Show, Newark.

    Looks like to visit this year, it’s still free entry, but you need to register, and print off a ticket. If going both days, then two tickets required. I presume there’ll be registering on the gate, but I can see that creating congestion !!

    iPhone email auto reply.

    If I set the auto reply feature on an iPhone, or some call it out of office for emails, does the phone have to remain switched on for the feature to work and alert the sender that I’m unavailable ?

    iPhone email auto reply.

    if I set up the auto reply out of office feature to reply to emails on an iPhone, does the phone have to remain switched on until I return it to normal, or does it do the auto bit while switched off ??
