Bob Grootegoode was making them. Said he wasn't going to make any more after the last batch he made. Don't know if he sold them all or not. Might find him on the ATIS list.

RE: Tractor Stands

Bob's e-mail address was at the time I got mine:

Just a note: Being overly careful, I guess but I made a slight
modification. I set mine at the proper height on a concrete floor and then I drilled a 1/4 in. hole through the the outer and inner parts and inserted
a 1/4 in. pin. Sure hope Bob doesn't mind. :idea: :idea:

If Bob is not going to build anymore, it sure would be nice if he would donate a copy of the drawings for the Implements and Parts Sketches section. I hope somebody might mention that to him in passing.......

Hi Jim,

Just got an e-mail from Bob today and he indicated that he was not going
to make any more, however, he still has some few left.

I was well pleased with the ones I got from him. They would make a good Easter present for your wife.

I'd be careful of that! I am still walking with a cane after getting my wife a new parts washer and a snow shovel for Christmas in 2002.

You never told us John, How does that parts washer work on dishes?

I'm having trouble getting the cleaning solvent rinsed off good enough. It makes the food taste funny.
