I finally got a few minutes today to assemble the cultivators I have been working on.

I know they are supposed to be stark white, but I like it a little off color better. They won't see much or any use as the teeth are getting very thin, but I got to it in time to save it. At least I can show it and use it if I need to.

BEFORE:

And After:

I also got a chance to clean up the tag the other day, can't quite make it out in the picture, but the serial number is "5".

I want to say a special "THANK YOU" to Alc. He hooked me up with the missing piece to hold the one depth wheel on. Without it, I would've spent hours creating something or trying to find one somewhere else. Lunch is on me next time we get to shake hands Al.

Nice looking cultivator, great low serial #. I'm happy you could save it. That's good that Alc could help with the missing part. It shows what great members we have here.

you got a real nice job. Never found a serial number that low on a DB tag. After 65 the numbers changed to the 25xxx series. I think the correct tag to go with your tractor should use a number like 917.2240 or 2250. The vators are all the same parts wise, so im not sure why the differnt numbers. Ive run thousand of number though the Sears site and some times you actually find the correct attachment. The older series ran one after the other and was easier to look up, than the newer stuff.

That looks awesome Alan! Many thanks to Alc for all he does to help folks out with this hobby! I'm generally one to split hairs when it comes to the correct colors etc..., but it looks perfect from where I'm sitting!! Great work as always!

This unit had been sitting in composting pig manure for many a year. When i removed the scale, the teeth were pretty thin. I don't think I could bend them by hand, but I think after a few rocks, I'd be straightening them.

Nice to see it all together and painted up. I think those sweeps are just stamped steel so they are pretty thin even when new . Al

That's what I was thinking about Alan. I think round stock would be easier to make the clamps for. I would have to go to the shop I used to work at to cut the rectangle holes on the water jet table and make sure I could work it in and not get in their way. I could drill the 3/4 in holes like Kenny shows here. If I can find some of the rectangle clamps for the right price I might just buy them and go that way though, I'll see. OK, now to get some honeydos out of the way and then see what I can do. I'll be sure to take pics. and post the build.
