I stopped by and looked at it today, to see if I could figure out where it goes together and also to compare it to some of the others.
There is a casting that looks EXACTLY like the axle-end on a Deere & Mansur we have.

I don't know about the wrench meet - where is that?
I just googled wrenches; marshalltown Iowa next weekend?
I wasn't planning to . . . but you never know. . . I might.
I just looked at a bunch of pictures for the auction next weekend - it's interesting for several reasons.

here is
1 - picture of axle end on Deere & Mansur
2 - picture of axle end on Farmers Friend
3 - picture of new mystery seeder - might be D & Mansur
4 - new mystery planter - trying to figure out how it goes together.

On the front wooden beam of this planter there is a 4-digit number - it looks like 2543 - could that be a serial number ?

Is the # stamped in the wood. Have not noticed that on mine. Still don't know about the boxes. Any more pics of them..

Yeah, it's stamped real deep in the wood.
It will be a few days before I can take more pictures.
I stopped by the museum for a few minutes this evening, to work on something I've been meaning to get to for a couple months.
There's this liquid - I want to call it "Lubrisol" but I don't think that's the right name. . . people say you put it on wood and metal and it just makes it look a bit cooler; like a lacquer coat or something.

I tested it on a couple random artifacts. Some stuff looks really cool.
The reason I mention it is, I am thinking of using it on the mystery planter. . . there might be some other markings on it.

Of course, I guess if I just used a spray bottle with a little water in it I could get the same effect but only for a few minutes until the water soaks in or evaporates.

I just threw in a couple pix here to show our place and what I was doing on the way home this evening.

first pic is a ball oiler - I just painted one half - it looks pretty cool on that side.
2nd and 3rd pix are meant to be before-and-after; clearly the flash worked on the after, so you can't really see the effect of the miracle liquid. The last picture is the first thing I thought about painting with this stuff; it's an empty can that actually showed up in a little youtube video but I found it on the ground and rescued it.

on our website there is a clip from "THE PICKERS" . . . it was not aired, I don't believe, but it is nicely edited and shows Warren in his natural surroundings. Right at the end of the video one of the TV guys has this can right here in his hand.
So if that magic liquid stuff works I'll paint some on this can to stop it from rusting.

We had our last scheduled open house Saturday, but we have something going on next Saturday - if you are going to be around let me know. I might need to be in Edgerton WI in the evening but will probably be at PAMA earlier. We have a few small projects going on and will probably be there at least one Saturday each month anyway. Let us know when you want to stop by. I had never heard of the wrench collector's club til I saw your earlier message - sounds like an interesting group. We have a great meeting room too - maybe yoiu could schedule a meeting here one day. We have a few wrenches too, but nothing interesting that I'm aware of. I'm partial to the Emerson wrenches.

Default Newest addition to PAMA collection; The Missing Link

Over the past few months; we have mentioned the "Missing link" planter; let me explain:
At PAMA, we have several key collections, including:
1) the primitive planters - many two seat, pre-check-row, AND
2) one of the best collections of Emerson brantingham implements ANYwhere.

But we didn't really have a nice-looking modern checkrow planter - only a REALLY complete one that was made by John Deere, but which is in it's original condition; a generous coat of iron oxide obscures it's elegant beauty.
While this JD model 990 or similar may be unusually complete, it's not what you would call UNUSUAL by any stretch.

Wouldn't it be cool if we had a nice Emerson brantingham 2-row horse-drawn planter? You know, just to sort of fill in the gap between all these wooden implements and the later all-steel versions?

Well, it seems we had one all along. It was in an alternate storage area and there were a couple people that knew about it.
Kent McMakin, friend of PAMA, has spent a few months working on it, and returned it complete today.
It's nice to have a shiny new artifact, particularly one with that "E-B" Logo.
It really fills a gap in the collection.

We know this is a model 23 or 24 - pretty similar to a 26B - I have some ad prints for that one - all you planter pros and E B enthusiasts out there, please let us know as much as you can, to help us fill in the blanks regarding The Missing Link.

Thanks in advance for your generous assistance.
And thanks to Kent McMakin for making this artifact a reality.
