Another little T &J model I was not happy with the front wheels as in picture six
so I spoke with Dutchy and he recommended I make my own and I have to agree much better!
Thanks Dutchy!!
What a great resource this Lumberjocks is

A few comments.

A GREAT TRACTOR! Pretty much a John Deere A or 70.

Excellent wood choices.

Yes the wheels that you made are much better looking and even a more accurate portrayal of the real ones.

I spent many hours on the real ones.

I like the wheels Dee. No I’m joking, I like the hole tractor. You did a great job.

Now you need to build Dutchy’s tractors so he doesn’t get lonely. LOL

I wrote that and then went and again checked out you other builds, there ain’t no worry’s about him getting lonely with all your other great tractors to plow

That is a real nice build! Yes self made wheels are the best, no doubt.

Brilliantly done Dee1. I was faced with the same decision as you did (picture #6), however, I was not clever enough to make my own front wheel. Consequently I found it hard to justify a walnut back wheel, which personally resulted in a fairly plain model of mine.

Good mentoring from THE Dutchman!

Super nice job on the tractor. I want to do one of the Massey Harris 44 that I am restoring. The rear wheels it appears to me that you glued the bars onto each half. Is that hard to do, would like some info on the wheels as I do not use plans.

Great Job, I too love the wood combinations.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
