Default Justrite Plow Share Sharpener

What light can anyone shed on a "Justrite Plow Share Sharpener" mfg in Minneapolis, MN? I have tried to Google Images of it but have not had any luck. Also, has anyone rebuilt a large bellows like the one I have in the pickup?

I have not rebuilt a bellows but thought about building one. I have a book "How to Make A Blacksmith's Bellows" by Robert M. Heath in Ridgeland Miss. Copyright 1985 that pretty well describes what is required. My project was slowed considerably when I priced the leather needed. There are other materials that an be used. Naugahyde and good close weave canvass will work.
I really like to operate a bellows forge. It takes some time to develop the proper rhythm to first inflate the upper chamber and then to keep it inflated.

seems that often furniture discards hold potential for leather. Then again, is it leather or "leather like."

So does the plow sharpener act like a small power hammer?

I would say it acts more with a drawing motion. The hammer end has a roller that would seem to pull the point of the plow lathe to a sharp point. The project is done. Please see the posted picture.
