It has been an idea of mine for several years to restore this spreader. I can't really sell it because I sold it once on eBay and the buyer never picked it up. It has one side crunched down but other than that it's pretty straight and complete. I am going to go completely through it and then paint it up like new. It goes in the museum when it's done. Watch for updates but I don't imagine I'll start on it right away. I just wanted to get it in before it froze down. This is going to be my blacksmith shop by and by.

Looks like a fun project. What brand is it? I've got an old Case spreader about the same vintage that Grandpap bought new. It's all wood floor and sides. Dad replaced the wood a number of years before he died and even used it a couple of times. He didn't use treated wood and it's all rotten now. Maybe when I retire I'll put new wood again.

Howard, Just like the corn binder, looks overwelming at first. I just keep chipping away at it till it was complete. Kirk knows about my next project! I just pulled the engine out of an 1929 six speed special. Truck is rough but if I can get the engine running I will push on to finish the rest.
I know your are not afraid of a little WORK! oldiron29
