The Fairbank Morse " salt block ' looks to be a early one judging by the mag cap, I had two great runners were in production a while . This one was a 1952 if the tag is there they are easy to date , early one had pot metal mixer and governor which just fell apart.

Finally got some time to get the truck and trailer empty. Been to busy farming working long hours.

Picked up another 12BB which makes 5 complete ones now. So hopefully in the next couple months I can get a good jump on my project.

The next one is a 12A or at least what's left of one. Had this one delivered to the swap. The wheels are what I was really after. Hadn't seen those before on a walk behind. Seen that style on tillers but not with that bolt pattern. But Sunday afternoon as I was packing up a guy pulled up with his trailer to load up a couple this he bought from me and on the back of his trailer he had a Frazier rototiller with the same wheels! Not sure if he is correct but he seemed very knowledgeable on the Fraziers. He said they came out on some of the early ones and they made around a 1000 sets or so. But what are the chances of 2 sets being in the same place like that.

Your planter looks like it was for a Frazer Rototiller.  I was fortunate to find a double row for my Frazer Rototiller.

That's what I was thinking it was. It has a totally different frame for mounting than my other seeders.

Yes the drinks were part of negotiations.

Not yet I haven't. We'll see what I have for time this weekend.
