I have had a cultivator attachment for a push type/single wheel garden tool for years. When I went up to Jpcubs, I found a small wheel plow and brought it home with me. Since I have the 'rust remover' going, thought I would clean this up and see about getting it in working order. Put some of the parts in the tank yesterday, will turn them over this morning and pull this evening. Here's a few pics of it.

The last pic show the part I have carried around for years trying to figure out how I could adapt it to something. Now I have the tool to use it on. I just clamped the boards on to get some idea of what I needed for handles. This morning, I did a search for handles and found these.

I will probably get the first set as they are a little thicker and would last longer.
The wheel is about 15" diameter. Needs some new bolts here and there. Anyway, I am going to fix it up and play with it (once the weather cools down).

Neat old find Kenny. Glad you are going to wait until the temps back off a little. The cultivators work, but they do require input from the operator. :D

This is good weather to 'piddle' with things. I just hope the shipping on the handles won't be too much. I'm in no hurry to get it going, just want to see it back in working condition. The wheel hole is about .490", thinking to drill it on out to 1/2" and put a bushing back to 3/8" for the bolt through it. Wobbles quite a bit right now. Might put a grease zerk in it so it will turn easily.
The plow is rather neat, hope it works okay.

Kenny, is there an Amish Area anywhere near you? If so, you may want to stop and ask one of the farmers about handles. Some of these guys still make their own, or know someone who does. Just a thought.

I forgot about them. There are some east of Tulsa, may have to make a trip out that way, just not sure where to start looking. I know they have a store with baked goods. Might be the place to start. Might end up selling it to them. LOL

Thats the same place i get my handels, they make real nice ones and the shipping to me was pretty reasonable. I restore a lot of seeders and walk behind tools, and i would go with the smaller sized ones, as they have a better look. The others are nice and big but the diamentions are too big and look wrong after you get done. The larger handels are meant for horse cultivators and the other ones are for gardening tools.

The main frame is 'cooking' away the rust. The wheel and rear handle supports are ready for paint. Thinking about painting the wheel black. The frame will be Sunrise Red. Should brighten it up a bit.
