* Roy’s Toolbox

Posted on November 24th, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


From the 2011 Newark Tractor show Roy bought a toolbox for his TED-20. It should be mounted on the left side of the battery carrier frame just in front of the dashboard.

Rather than looking for an original toolbox Roy was happy to purchase a replica. He chose the offering from Patrick, wwww.Fergiland.com and got a great show deal. Tip: Not only will you save Postage & Packaging buy buying at a show (offsetting the entry price) getting your parts from a show also offers you the opportunity to look at and feel the items and check it’s quality and suitability. You can’t do that when buying over the internet. There is also the probability that the seller may have an atractive show offer available making it cheaper than buying normally.

All the reproduction toolboxes Roy and I saw at the show have the lid hinge running the full length of the box, unlike the original toolboxes. Another feature of the original box saw the catch was riveted on as opposed to welded with the modern box. Oh yet and the modern one is painted red.

“The bolt holes on the original where off to othe right side. This box has then centrally positioned. When fitting if it fouls the dashboead I’ll drill some more holes offsett.” Roy commented

So Roy also bought two copper rivets and has added them to his new toolbox to make it look a bit more authentic.

And he’s made a great job of painting it grey

Nice job Roy, I wait for the photo from Roy of the toolbox fitted to his tractor.
