Well.. I'm nearing the end of my restoration of the auto certes so it's just about ready for sale. I picked this up without a grass box, however, there was a grass box from a 17" machine with the ransomes cheeks and mounts for the auto certes.. the main metal was damaged and corroded beyond repair so have removed the excess metal leaving the main cheeks intact.
As I've a background in sheet metal work, I could form a new box, form the main body and use the original pressings or find a replacement box to match the machine.
this is the quandary...
With the way that sheet metal is being priced, it's a bit of an issue buying per m2 of 1.0mm sheet metal. finding a local and TRUSTWORTHY supplier is also another matter.
so... just as a possible ask. does anyone have an old auto certes 18" grass box in need of a good home, even if it needs a little repair work.
Any help would be appreciated.
