I know, but I originally paid a little more than that for them.  I guess if one tried making them he would see why the high cost.  That seller I listed has other straight ones for less money.  A fellow I know was making them and charging $65 + shipping for his.  On another note, they will last a long long time.  Back in the late 70s I bought a set for my B1-6 and they still look like the day I installed them.

This is from the 79-80 parts catalog.  I am sure at this time they were mass produced by a supplier.

Manufactured by Graham-Paige Motor Company who at the time was a subsidiary of Kaiser-Frazer.  They were built from 1946 until 1949.  Dallas Winslow purchased the company and moved it to  Auburn Indiana.  Around 60,000 units were built.

Tillers Hell, there monsters. I love them.

That was my main piece of garden equipment to work my 5000 sq ft garden in the 80s.  Worked the garden in the spring with the 26" wide tiller, then changed to the 20" tiller and cultivating tines for cultivation chores through the summer.  It was my worker for 12 years before we quite gardening.  It was only after that when I got interested as a collector.  For awhile I bought, lightly rehabbed, then sold several.  I was getting most of the ones that came my way.  I said I was done taking in Frazers when one came along I could not resist.  Told myself that I would get it running and sell one of the other ones as I was tight for storage room.  Well somehow I found room and none of the others left.  I have completely overhauled several of the engines - pretty simple.

Ya ,people think i'm nuts when I mix 50 weight aircraft engine break in oil for my gas.

I let a guy use mine years ago to do his back yard at a newly built house. There was a farmer plowing his field in back of him he stopped and came over asking where did you get that I haven't seen one of these in over 40 years. He got a kick out of it.

I bet it did a fine job making his yard and I am sure it found any rocks or roots that were there in the ground.
