That is one beautiful restoration. It looked like a type of spring loaded tine was used in those Tillers and it was incorporated in the logo with Patent Pending written there as well. I am wondering how that spring loaded business worked out in long term operation? I'm not an expert on tillers so I guess it's no surprise that I've never seen that type of tyne before.

The springs do come in contact with the ground and therefor do wear thin and break. The SIMAR tillers use those springs as well. When I had my garden and tilled with the Frazer, I replaced the tines every 3 - 4 years.
