The farm mower, which has been around for over a hundred years, was being sold for scrap. I thought it would be nice to save some of the older models, along with later ones, also, so I began looking for them. I ended up with 20 mowers.

Some of the older ones I have are Jones, Adriance-Platt, Thomas, Champion wobble gear, Walter A. Wood, Stoddard, Osborne and Dain. I would like to have some farm museum get them for display. I have sold a few.
