Here is something you won't see every day: A one-horse drill, built at the turn of the last century. It was used to plant grain between corn rows. My father was lucky enough to hold onto it since it was used on Grandpa Joe's farm. With information we were able to get through your publication and Dad's memory, we were able to restore it to almost original condition.
