I’ve enclosed a photo of a set of eveners (or doubletrees) for a team of horses or mules. They were bought at an auction west of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. What implement would they have been used on? One man said it would have been from a plow. However, I do not understand that. The only guess I have is, it might be from a seed drill. This is the only implement that I’ve been unable to understand how it was hooked on.
The crescent-shaped piece at the top measures 9-1/2 inches wide; each long piece connecting to it measures 18 inches long. Each of the two horizontal pieces at the bottom measures 29 inches long.

Last summer, I saw this Minneapolis-Moline tractor along Rt. 28 about 20 miles south of Seneca Rocks, West Virginia. Can anyone identify this tractor? I had two 1950 8N Fords and two 9Ns: I bleed gray.

I have a Wright 4-ton chain hoist. It is not stuck, but will only move slightly. Would appreciate information from anyone with a parts book or knowledge of its internal workings.

We know this is a nose pump waterer (cattle waterer). There are no markings on it. It is 20 inches high and 29 inches wide, and the trough is 9 by 25 by 3 inches deep. Does anyone know who made it or where it was made?

I recently purchased a corn sheller supposedly dating to the 1870s. The sheller was patented by Ebenezer Morrison, Franklin, New Hampshire, in 1856 (patent no. 15,105 granted June 10, 1856). Does anyone have any information on the manufacturer or what the color scheme or graphics should be? I would like to restore this to like-new condition and am interested to learn of any markings that would have been on this sheller.

These photos show a cultivator I bought at a yard sale in Yreka, California. I do not know the make and model number of it. I would like to replace the two outer tines as they are worn down but so far I have not found any replacements.
The tangs are thin and are held down by a single bar making adjusting a bit difficult. I remember using a larger five-tine version with thumb-screws holding down the individual tines, so that when you needed only one of them to get between narrowly spaced plants, you could do so. The tangs were also larger. I would like to buy that one with some spare tines. I would appreciate any help.
This Emerson-Brantingham 1-row cultivator is marked “C-1515 - C1258.” I know Emerson-Brantingham was bought by J.I. Case in 1928. Can anyone tell me what years this cultivator was in production?
