After owning a pair of them for over a yr, and spending 100's of hour searching and looking, i was able to find the orginal patents for this seeder. 832907 is its number. 025.jpg It was built by a company called ohio implement , in Bowling green ohio in 1906. This place was a small foundry and machinary maker, who only sold thier products through ad's in garden magizines. The gentleman who recieved the patent got 4 of them on the same day, covering cultivators, seeders, and other garden items. So far i only know of 4 people who have one of them. I really like the search for unknown stuff.

Nice old seeder. Glad you found where it came from. Sounds like it's pretty rare.
