I found this site on July 21, 2010 and 'thought' I'd signed in and introduced myself at the time but must have done something wrong. I have searched this site thoughly now, or hope I have, and am reposting my introduction to MTF.

I'm a retired HVAC Design Eng from a major, (now defunct), manuracturer who went belly up one year after I retired in 2001.

I'm a 'old tractor' buff, a railroad modeler to some extent, an Amateur Radio Operator who has been licensed since 1962. This june will be my 50th year in ham radio.

I'm married to a wonderful women and we just passed our 50th Wedding Anniversary on Dec. 30, 2011.

I'm a Gravely garden tractor NUT and have several attachments, some which I have rebuilt. My current Gravely is a 1994 model G-18 Professional. My first Gravely, which I no longer have, was a 1960 some walk behind.

I just recently had my 1974 John Deere 302A 50 Hp industrial loader tractor completely rebuilt except for Yellow paint. I've had it since 1993 and LOVE it. I also have a 1973-94 Case 508B backhoe.

I may be talking Gravely garden tractors here soon, I'm always on the lookout for attachments to reuild or a new 4-wheeler tractor. I'm NOT a zero-turn mower fan.
