  • 2019 Calendar Update
  • Bad news gentlemen. There is not enough interest in another calendar to make it worth the time to make one. Until you've done it its hard to understand how much work goes into the initial layout and shipping and controlling all the finances behind it. Just not worth it for two dozen calendars.

    In 2009 when I did the first calendar I sold just shy of 1,000. This year I've only got orders for 21. Makes my heart sad to see interest fade away on these old machines.

  • Dan I posted over on facebook tractor site and there is some interest in buying calendars. I don't know if it will help.

  • Wow! I misunderstood your request. I only sent pictures not an order. I typically bought 12 to get 14. I have also in the past sent some back to Ed Gooding to sell with the proceeds for the website.
    Did you get enough pictures to put a calendar together? Am I the only one who did not understant that you were taking a count on possible sales?

  • I probably could have worded it better but in any case the interest just isn't there.

  • Have you done a projection of cost to pruduce vs sales price and predict how many would have to be sold to make a profit? If the number is 2000 and interest is only for 1000 I can see the problem. I just wonder if admin could put a 2019 Calendar tab above as in the past but to just collect potential sales data if more intereste might be generated.

  • I would have to sell 250 to break even. Have less than 40 requests right now.

  • Dan, thanks for trying. Unfortunately the interest in these good old tractors seems to be shrinking. I wonder how many are like me and have added a newer tractor as the worker. The old Fords are still very useful, but I think they are transitioning from workers to hobby.

  • Sorry to hear that Dan. If I had won the Mega Millions I would have ordered a 1000 instead of 2.

  • Well Dan you gave it a good shot but it is what it is I guess. Thanks for your efforts.
