What's really different is that the planter has six pegs on the wheels to vibrate the seed box. There is also a lever with 14 different settings to change the vibration levels from very soft to very hard. Can someone please help me find out more information about this unknown planter?

Hats off to 'Rusty Iron'

I always look forward to my next issue of Farm Collector. But what I really look forward to is Sam Moore's column, 'Rusty Iron.' They've always terrific, but the August 2003 column, 'Deering's Journey,' was superb. I learned more from that article than from much of what I read on a daily basis. Hats off to him. You have a wonderful writer there.

I do have a suggestion. The magazine should include the writer's and editor's e-mail addresses, much like on the 'First Things' column, so that the readers can directly correspond with the writer. Of course, they may not want to be encumbered with thousands of e-mails from readers. Nevertheless, many other publications do this as a normal practice.
