Shearing Website

Post by Hunter » Sat May 08, 2010 4:03 pm

If you are into Wolseleys and into shearing I have been advised of a new shearing website www.theringersreview.com

PLEASE be careful how you type that in, the ringer is the best shearer in a gang and would take the number one peg.

A general site about shearing books, engines, handpieces etc.

Its funny how the engines are supposed to be sheep shearing engines , but i have never seen any attached to any shearing equipment .

I will have to keep my eyes wide open when im out and about , see if i can find one and get some pics of it .

If you go to our website wealdpower.co.uk and look in the 2007 gallery at the christmas crankup, there is a pic of a wolseley sheep shearing set-up, i think the shearing gear is made by wolseley as it dont look like lister, but i could be wrong.

Wow that is very interestesting the brackets look the same minus the word Lister on them, however the clutch assembly is different and not a lister type I have seen, the area where the belt goes is different but the most stiking difference is the angle joint at the to of the flexi shaft.

Many thanks for showing me this, this hase been a revolutionary weekend in shearing terms, I have used my JAP 34cc to shear some more sheep and I have been kindly sent some pictures of an Allen Scythe with a shearing attachment and now this!

Many thanks

Hello Hunter

That 34cc JAP engine you have is tiny, how well does it cope with shearing? Did anyone go to the Beaver Castle show a few weeks ago? i didn't and i wonder what i missed, the weather was great both days as well, dammit!!
