      That looks really good. My brother in-law would love that, he collects tractors.

            Robert, nice job on the pattern and the cutting. I used to drive one of those when I was a kid. Ford Fergeson?

                Excellent Robert, just excellent.

                Great use of different colors in the background as well.

                    Looks great, I like the red, but would prefer green. I'm more of a John Deere fan myself.

                          Kevin, that issue is what prompted me to start from scratch with a pic I took myself
                          Consequently, folks , because of this I don't know what kind of tractor except old and absolutely beautifully restored

                          Thanx for the kind words everyone ......i think I will even be able to sell this one out here in the

                            Good job Robert. I have fond memories of the Ford and just bought a pattern to cut one. I like yours better.

                              Great job on the pattern and cutting. I bounced around many a field on an old Ford like that one raking hay.

                                I have no idea what the measurements of the 18" table are, I can give measurements of the poly max and the 14"....

                                Just Wondering...

                                Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                                With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                                I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                                Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                                I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.
