Cyclone Spreader Restoration

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Interesting. Perhaps that manufacturer used a serial number more like a model number.

That's what I'm wondering now, I can't find any information about these.

I did just find this ad for them from April 1963, it calls it an "S-3".

With some products (maybe I should say some companies) a serial number isn't a unique number for each unit. It might be more correctly viewed as a batch number or date code. The same number may be applied to everything for a month or some such. They may change it with each production run, or maybe only when a design change is made. Hard to outguess what somebody's scheme was.

I found the article above and saw this spreader and recently found this one and bought it for $15. It must have lived in a basement most of it's life cause it's in really good shape.

I used to have one of those with a Sears label on it. Wore it out using it so much.

I just found this today, but it's worth the wait! I can't say anything better than anybody else already has, but excellent work! Thanks for sharing! Thank you also for your inspiration, both in your work, and helping me realize that; If it casts a shadow, it might can't be restored, but it can be replicated

I happened upon an old satellite dish on the side of the road the other day and sharpied it and plasma cut it and bent 4 tabs down then welded 2 holes up and primer went on it. Now it'll keep the birds nest out.

A man came by and liked the Cyclone I redid and the one the man gave me so they changed addresses :roll:

A good friend of mine bought this one in Portland several years ago so I messaged him about it and we did some trading. This one is NOS, never been used and looks great. Has all the hardware with it too. It’ll probably get a fast hitch prong soon.
