The title of this discussion isn't an ode to Johnny hates jazz, it is my thoughts after perusing the "makes and models" section of this very website.
The dream in question, well, an idea really was to try and collect every model manufactured by the Suffolk iron foundry up until the 70s.
Now I thought I was close with 7 models (without the variations in marks and cutting widths), there is actually around 24.
My wish list has now tripled, and reality has set in that I will probably never see let alone own all the suffolks. Especially the mower made for a cigarette company (Superb) and the shingler edger.
Mr Wristpin, i have my fingers crossed
I will endeavour to keep the dream alive but help from other club members will be greatly appreciated.
So between messing around trying to get my corporation sorted, i'll be scanning the classifieds, looking through auction catalogues and hoping the wish list gets smaller.
Regards to all my mower friends.
