I was so pleased to see and read about 'Mothballed Moldboards' in the July 2003 Farm Collector. I have a walking plow yet to turn a furrow as well. It's an Oliver Model 404, manufactured by the Oliver Chilled Plow Works in South Bend, Ind. The plow is one of my very favorite old farm collectibles..

Green grinder mystery

I have a burr mill or grinder that I would like information about. It has a hint of light-green paint on it with a 3-inch circle on the hopper that was probably a logo. The large V-belt pulley was a later addition.

'Crossing' my fingers

I just purchased a horse-drawn mower in good condition. However, I can't identify the manufacturer. Several areas on the mower. I find a cross cast in the metal. Does anyone know what brand of machine I have purchased?
