Whur late neebour Malcolm Robertson had put a power drive converson like the ane seen here onto an Albion binder so he became an expert overnight and was in much demand to do these conversions!

A farmer in whur area speared him if he wid come doon tae convert his binder, Malcolm being a very helpful chap said oh yes and would do what he could to help.

When Malcolm arrived he asked Johnie can yea get me some tools, weel Johnie gead tae look and wiz gone for some time in search o these tools when at last he returned in hiz hand he held a poker and an axe!! "Na na," says Malcome "I doubt I will need more than a poker and an axe fur this job!!"
