THE Kingaroy & District Vintage Machinery Club hopes to corner the market on second hand tractor parts.

To achieve this it is hosting its first swap meet at Butwell Park in Geoff Raph Dr on Saturday, November 18.

Club member Noel Barsby said the swap meets a common in the vintage machinery scene it rare that you finds stall dedicated to tractors parts.

"There's plenty for cars but the tractor section isn't very well represented anywhere,” Mr Barsby said.

"But that's what most of our club is.”

The club reckons if they push the spare tractor parts they'll draw in visitors from far and wide who are keen for a bargain.

Any money raised through the swap meet will go back into the club.

It's long-term aim is to build a museum dedicated to old-time machinery that will serve as a draw card for tourists.

There is still plenty of time to claim a stall if you have gear to sell.

Don't fret if you do not have tractor parts as Mr Barsby said all were welcome.

"We'll be selling tractor parts, car parts, household parts,” he said.

"Whatever people want to sell they can bring there.”

Stall holders are asked to set up on Friday, November 17 while the gates open to the general public at 6am on November 18.

Food and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
