Thanks for posting these pictures.
That's not too far from me; I will have to plan a visit to the Penfield IL Museum. We have a Challenge Corn Planter; it will be interesting to compare the two.

And I love those corn-cutters; is this a Dain, from John Deere?
Does it have big cast-iron lettering that says "Safety Cutter" . . . I always laugh at the name "Safety Cutter" on the most dangerous looking thing ever used on a farm.

I was at the Penfield show a few years ago. I don't remember seeing this corn cutter. It is not a Dain I have a very nice early wooden Dain and I Have the later Dain improved Safety Corn Cutter and I have what a thought was a Dain in between the two that I have already have. I have a Foo's corn corn that I need to do some work on.

I just heard something interesting; there was this video from the college of the Ozarks: the speaker states he has a challenge corn planter and he thinks it is only one of two. This one, the one at PAMA and the one at the college of the Ozarks makes three. Do you know of any other Challenge planters?
