Yeah, I was fortunate yesterday as well. I received a call from a customer, an elderly gentleman, who wanted me to come and look at his old tractors: A 9N, an NAA; a Ferguson TO-20; a FORD 3910 made in England, and a Wheel Horse tractor. Tucked away in his woods under a shelter was a Ferguson MKO-21 Cultivator and a Ferguson Weeder. Then, up by his barn, a TOWNER Subsoiler. The cultivator was originally 11-shanks but someone hacked off the two outer most front ones and angle iron frame. I asked he if wanted to get rid of them and he said I could have them. I gave him some cash anyway. They all have the original tags too, and the TOWNER Subsoiler tag shows made in Santa Ana California -see pic. He didn't know what it was so I explained that TOWNER was a Dearborn & FORD supplier of farm equipment catering mostly to the western and southwest regions. I said it was a good collectable piece but he said I still could have it. I can't get my weeder pictures to upload to the dreaded photobucket site; it says they uploaded but don't show up in my library. Here is the cultivator and the TOWNER Subsoiler. I had a Ferguson Weeder years ago, sold it at auction, but may just use it as a parts implement since both outside wings couldn't be located . He said they were around 'in the woods somewhere'. I can use the cultivator parts on my Dearborn and other Ferguson cultivator. BTW, someone farmerized the Subsoiler with a steel tube with a cast cup attached at the top and a welded assembly at the back. The guy told me it was used as some sort of seed planter. The old saying, "...what's one man's junk is another man's treasure...' applies.
