    I was finally able to purchase a 43 Blade Manual Angling Kit. Not only is it New Old Stock, but it's even the correct vintage for the blade that it will get used for. I currently have a 1968 43 Blade with the adapter on the front of my 1967 110, and now with this all green angling kit, the set up will be complete. Just need fellow member Littledeere to come up with a copy of the mounting instructions, and I'm ready to mount it. IMG_20171231_145102544.jpg IMG_20171231_145111321.jpg

    Was getting a little nervous there for awhile, as I thought the pricing was going to take off and I wouldn't stand a chance.

    Probably not any time soon for Facebook. My wife is on it all the time
    I just am not interested in it. I enjoy being on here.

    Don is right, I bought it from a Facebook auction page. Although, if you find it, that means I'll probably end up bidding against you, kind of like the auction this past year at Root's!

    He and I were talking about it after we both placed our first bid, and he was respectful enough to give me first chance at it. To him I am grateful. Won't find many guys who would do that, but I wish we had more guys like him.

    Yes, especially a lot of NOS parts and pieces. Some sell for a reasonable price, while most sell for stupid money. More money than I can compete with.

    Don’t like bidding against friends, this summer it was hard we only bid it to what we wanted to pay and then didn’t want to run it up for you.

    So far, I have bought this angling kit, quite a few manuals, a hydraulic pump vented bolt, a NOS rear curtain for the 60 cab, and a couple more of smaller things. It all depends on what it is and who is bidding. Just last week a NOS round fender umbrella (no mounting) sold for over $500.00. Would have been nice to have, but not for that price!
