I have been looking at this for a bit and finally got the go ahead to 'have at it'! See what you all think before I go further! It is definitely horse drawn!

I got it all apart without destroying anything. One bolt had to have the nut cut off, but the rest came free with no issues.

Just kidding :good_job: that looks like it will make a great tool holder, if you find a large middle buster would be great for the garden or diggin' ditches.

I did no damage as I took it apart except to the one bolt! I can put it back together real quick if need be! That's why I posted it as I did!

Kenny, if my little brain can remember... I will try to look in the horse drawn equip book and see if it jumps out at me. We're you able to grab any color from under the hardware?

Also look at the numbers on the back of the shovel and post it here, they might be Planet Jr.

Alan, I haven't done anything to the hardware as yet, but it looks to be a Red color under it all! I know it would make a great tool for the GT's, but if it is a hard to find item, it will go back together!

it is good you checked, it means you really care and love this hobby, i have high respect for people like you for doing that.

 

Looking at the beam i would ascertain it being of what we now call black iron, very high carbon steel, the new alloy steel will not weld very good to the beam and the welding wires would not work very well. There are Arch welding rods (forget the type #) for black steel, think gas pipe for under the road.

 

i would think of bolting the beam to a tool bar such as you made for the box grader and a range of shovels could be attached such as middle buster, sweeps, chisel tooth, and so on.

Cole Mfg co, they bought out the Planet Jr. seeder drill line in the 70's.

 

That is a single row corn/bean planter. The make is late 1800's to 1900's but

What i find interesting is the sticker on the hopper, did not start using that until during and after the war in the 40's so Cole may have begain reproducing the line during the war from metal shortages.

 

Monkey Wards sold Cole planters, you might look through the catolages.

There is absolutely no need to modify it at all. Just hook it up to the hitch on the tractor and grab the handles...Of course you'll need someone to drive, heh heh.
