Cultivator

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.

 Milking stool

I live on a very old cattle farm dating to the mid-1800s. I pulled this milking stool out of the barn a few days ago and I want to restore it. I am curious as to whether any Farm Collector readers might know the original manufacturer. I see traces of paint, which makes it appear to have originally had a red seat and gray legs. Thanks for your help!

Emerson-Brantingham cultivator

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?

who recognizes this sawmill?

I would like to get some input on this sawmill. It is now in pieces, but other than the wood and rails that it used to run on, it is pretty much complete. With some research we have found out that it was moved from Waynesville, North Carolina, to Arkansas at the turn of the last century. Just found out this week that my great-great-grandfather operated this mill in Amity, Arkansas, and had a contract to provide milled wood to F.T. Smith Rim & Bow Co., Ft. Smith, Arkansas.

From the research I have done in the last few days, it looks to be a Frick or American, but I have not had a chance to look for manufacturing marks on the main unit. There is a manufacturer’s name on the saw that cuts the timber into widths, but I cannot make it out.

New Holland SP166 Baler

I am trying to find the owner of this NH SP166 pictured in the December/January 1985 issue of Gas Engine Magazine. My friend Robert Bowersmith and I have a similar baler. We are building a list of current owners of these balers. We would appreciate any information on the owner of this one.

the McCormick Deering thresher

I recently purchased a model of a McCormick-Deering thresher at an estate auction. The original Arcade Co. toys were made of cast iron. The model I purchased is made of galvanized steel. It has many red plastic pulleys and knobs mounted to the exterior. At the discharge end, there is a chaining I-link conveyor with wooden treads.

I believe this might be a salesman’s sample, as a cast iron model would be extremely heavy. The galvanized metal makes it easy to carry. Also, the detail in the pulley system is extensive. Does anyone have any information on this piece or recognize it?

F1094 red wheel

Does anyone recognize this wheel? I found this in my dad’s barn and have not been able to find one like it. It is wood with a cast iron hub and measures 48 inches by 3 inches. The hub appears to have had some sort of a gear mechanism in it. Stamped on it is “F1094.” The hub measures 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches deep.
