Kverneland Plough Press


Recommended Posts

Well we have all spoke about it and you may have noticed I have orderd some press rings with the help of Texas in the Netherlands.

Well he did me proud and posted them to me.

20 of them went to CJ for his creation and I have 47 left for mine.

It is based on a 3.1 m plough width which works out as a 7 Furrow plough ploughing at 45cm (18") wide furrows.

The 7930 should be ok with that. This will be finnished and on show at ToyTrac

After an hour of tinkering this is what I have.

Firstly, the tools and glue if any one needs to know:

More pics soon..........

Next up the swing arms and hitch.

looks great Jez, is brass easy to work with??

on the tools front, the phone i take it for when you stick your left little finger in your right ear? :-\

oh and i think Britainsfan  should get a numpty ::) ::)

Yes mate, it is also for taking some sneaky pics to send to the sneaky hobbit to wind him up  :D :D

He should you are right.

As for brass, it is great yeah, i am gluing rathe than soldering as I don't want to mess it up as it is costly.

I am thinking kowever it will be too heavy to sit on the linkage but I am sure i can find a way to make it work.

I would of rather make the swing arms from plastic to be honest but i didn't think wt the time.

Well i have managed to get the arms pretty much sorted but I need to wait to spray the rings before I glue it all together.

I just need to decide on a hitching point and get the chains fitted between the rings and all will be done.....

I am thinking about priming it all before I spray it to avoid the real colour flaking off. If anyone can advise me on this that would be great.

And pulled in for transport:

Yes Jez,i think your right about priming it all because that is white metal and the paint could flaking of otherwise ;) ;)

fantastic job :) bet you could sell afew of those to fit behind the new plough! (i know its a one off for yourself)

i use halfords paint for kevernland red (not sure on name, will check for you, think its a Vauxhall red) and i use john deere green but it is really abit dark alongside the real kevernland green, nigel may have some tinlets the right shade that would match ;)

Thanks mike, i may consider making another to sell but will see how this one works out. I have enough brass.  ;) ;)

I think there is a tips Topic on painting Jez. It may not be stickied but it's in there somewhere. Might not hurt to warm the metal gently before painting.

True mate, i will have a hunt  ;) ;)
