I have this garden seeder i'm restoring. Got two of them so i took the best parts from both to make one perfect unit. My only problem is i dont know who made it. Any one seen a seeder similar to this one. It has wood handles, but the new ones didnt show up until today so there not in the picture.
Too small of a pic for me to see

Send it to me and I will post it. PM sent.
Here it is. I could not make out the wording on the top.
the wording is only the patent date of aug 17 03, but theres no patent number, nor after seaching patent records i dont find any thing for a seeder. Patents are hard to find sometimes because it might only apply to some small piece of the machine.
Once upon a time you could find seeders like this almost in everycorner. Mostly they were the planet jr's of differnt numbers. Sometimes i'd get lucky and see an Iron age or an Iron King unit. Today there arent many around. Not sure why or where they went, but i find them at antique shops mostly. That where this one and the donor one came from. I took the best parts from the two and made what amounts to a brand new seeder. Just got the handles on last week. I sent out for them to a place in Mo, where they had the ussal plow handle, and just happened to be one of the few places that makes the smaller sized ones for garden plows and seeders. I now have all the old bolts replaced with new sq headed one from my bolt supplier. I will probally put it up on the shelf with the dozen or so garden tractors i've completely restored. I have at least a dozen of these garden seeders, all differnt, some of which i use to plant with and some that i take to shows. Cleaning them up, replacing or rebuilding the worn parts, and learning a little history of them is the best part. After that they just sit out so vistors can admire them, and be inspired to go out and start a collection of there own. This seeder so far has stumped all the people i've shown it to, as to the makers name. Im afraid that the name or decal was on the handles, which were badly weathered and broken.
