Nice work there. Nice machines.

So far I have not seen any shop equipment that I don't have experience operating.

hmmm, Medford Oregon.

If only I were still a young man...

Might be a real nice place to be an apprentice? Especially if you could bring your ('74 442) Tucker along??? (And maybe a large sack of cash.) Is Tucker taking apps?

Does the factory (or supplier) still have the stamping dies for the pontoons?

Great Thread!
How about the age old question regarding track roller bearings, where do you source replacements or rebuild existing. The rollers pictured on the track segments on the work table look OK, I'm sure you'll need to address a few.

Couple of years ago New Holland (Ford) did a retro version of the Ford 9N tractor. Perhaps Tucker should do a retro of one of the old style bodies with today's drive technology.
