Did some walking around the flea market at the Ashtabula Oh show.
Don't have pics of everything, but I think the biggies are here. If I forget something, I will add a post.
Couple of ammo cans for tool boxes and Ryan bought a DC motor

A 2 qt pour can
image.jpg
A partial HH120 (points) block with good compression.
image.jpg
A good gas can.
image.jpg
A broken electric tiller. Only bought it because it says David Bradley.
image.jpg
A very rough Brinly 8" plow. I know it's bad, but not a lot of these locally and I think I can save it.

I also bought a small wheel and frame and a partial sleeve hitch for a craftsman. Ryan also got a very nice plumb bob, a Fedora (I called it a Fedorka),




Oh, and one more thing... :D :dancingbanana:
A New Old Stock Cultivator.

Wow!

 

First off, that cultivator needs to be sent to me... do you see the brochure featuring a Bolens? I dont think this will fit your sears :D :poke:

 

 

Second: More pictures of that tiller!

The Bolens one I have is identical minus the decal and paint! Looks like these were made by a larger manufacture and were re branded

The cultivator is an outsourcing conundrum.
The box and the paper say Ohio Steel. The packing list says Brinly.
Wish I could read the $ :D

One thing I noticed was how thin the paint is on this. Even areas you can see thru it. No wonder the ones in the field are rusty when you find them.

That cultivator was a great score.  I wonder how that never was used?  Dealer overstock?

Looks like you had a good day treasure hunting.

Are you going to keep the cultivator in the box?

I don't know yet. Still considering.

  Dealer overstock?
 
Ben W.

Yeah, the guy bought out the overstock from the dealership he used to work at. I think it was to be behind a Cub Cadet as they were an IHC dealer.

I was at the flea market at Saegertown last weekend and found some smalls... Mainly files and clevis and such, but the things I was most excited about were the yellow nozzles in this picture. Bought the vents for pennies and all three nozzles for a dollar.
Gee, now they work right... Wonder why?image.jpg
I found a metal gas can tooimage.jpg
And the last biggie was this orphaned weight. Only the one was there and he had no idea what it was from.

Now I can have an orphaned weight on my inside wheel weight and save my cub weights for something else.

Believe I've seen similar wheel weights for Simplicity tractors.  Maybe walk-behinds.
