That's too funny i saw that ad on craigslist!  Looks like a classic vintage piece.

 

edit: on second look, i just noticed there is a tiller i saw that is similar but not identical to that one, i was wrong.

Those your backwards from what you would think.  If you want it to go deeper you push DOWN on the handle some.  To go shallower, you lift up a little.  To many people lift on the handles to force the tines down and that is when they start beating you up.  Tilled a lot of garden in years gone by with one of them.

My buddies decided that I needed absinthe in my sippy cup. They even bought a sippy cup for it to go in. Apparently they must think I cannot hold my likker!
