This old 1919 Rumely was a two year project to do the full size one
I did the little one in about a month. now that I am too old to do the full size ones anymore.
I do enjoy the wooden ones. .

No I did not build the big one , but i did rebuild it to the shape that it is in now. Or was when I last saw it. They are great tractors to rebuild as they are oil cooled so no rust in the cooling system.
I sold that one a few years back and I sure wish I still had it.D

Great little model there Dee1.

I’m a sucker for wheels and love your wind emission holes in the seat… coming from an old fart.

The second I saw it a smile came to my face!!!
Super nice project.
As other’s have said the seat is cool as is the whole project but for me I love the spokes showing through the tire, just adds something I guess it’s not one big tire but broke up by the spoke heads.
I just love these old old tractors.

That is fabulous.
Great job on both the Restore and build.
Thank you for sharing.
