Following is a link to an article that appeared in The Mother Earth News in 1982. I remember getting my issue and reading the article and thinking " I remember seeing my uncle with one of those when I was a little kid." I can see him (in my mind) to this day wraping the rope around the spool and firing it up. Anyway, back in '82, I went to see my uncle a few days later and asked him about it. He said "yeah' it's setting back there behind the barn." I went and found it in a thicket of weeds but still in pretty good shape. The hood had kept the motor relatively safe and he had a turning plow and cultivators for it. I was disappointed that he had sold the disc to someone years earlier. I asked if he would sell it and he said "sure" and priced it all for $35.00. I bought it and was excited to have a DB
of my own so soon after reading the article. I've been tinkering with them ever since.
I stumbled across this article a few weeks ago and it was like a blast from the past; bringing back fond memories of happy times. My uncle passed several years ago, but I still think of him often when piddling with my tractors. He was a cool and interesting character.http://www.motherear...id-Bradley.aspx
