    ox shoe, horse shoe, stem and bowl from a clay pipe, looped metal screw to hold a wooden scythe handle on, old cast door latch broken, and when cleaning out my dug well at the bottom - a perfect clay pipe from Glasgow, Scotland

    I don't have a tiller but I do use a disc that has turned up thousands of medium to large rocks. Last month when disking up my new garden spot on the first pass I turned up a shovel pointed plow share about 8" across the top. Picked it up and place it next to my fence line, made a couple more passes then got the cultivators out and rowed it up. Turned up another identical plow share.
    When using the box blade to level a spot for my shop, I drug out 4 big hunks of concrete about 18" in diameter x 2 feet long with a hole in the center that had evidently been used to cement in some fence post. Evidently many years ago there was a fence line about 15 feet from the property where the property line is now. I have also been lucky to find old broken T post with something other than a tire and used the FEL with chain to pull them up.
    Old house places always tend to turn up some old cast iron parts from wood stoves also. I found an old mule cultivator multi-wrench also. I brushed it up, ground off the rust and widened one wrench gap so it fits my torch regulators. Now it resides in my oxy-acetylene buggy cart so I always have a wrench to remove the regulators from the bottles. WASTE NOT, WANT NOT I always say.

    You got it addressed correctly? How much did it cost in postage to send it to him?

    I took out my phone line with a kick sod cutter about 15 years ago. The phone company said I'd have to pay to have it fixed until I showed the repairman that it came out directly below the sod and NOT the required foot deep.

    Once I was out plowing and it came up a rain shower but the sun was still out and just as I was plowing under what looked to be the end of the Rainbow....I heard a thump...I stopped the tractor and saw a sparkle ...I went over an looked an it was like a semi circle sticking out...so I grabbed a little hand shovel I carry on the tractor and shoveled around it and there it was...Wow.! Sparkling in all its Glory just like my Sainted Mother had read to me when I was little ~ It was a big pot, sure was....a Pot of Gold coins , jewels and other fine gold things ...I was so excited I went to pick it up and this little fella all dressed in green with red hair said..." No ya don't laddie ...and he grabbed the pot of gold and ran up the rainbow...I have never seen anything like it.....True story....so help me !

    A stone arrowhead in one spot, and my hunting knife that had been lost for about five years. I think the neighbor's dog stole it off the tailgate of my truck because it was covered with blood and fat when I left it there overnight. It was gone in the morning.

    I found it last spring while tilling. It held up to five years in the ground and being tilled pretty well. The knife is a Beretta Loveless Hunter.



    As found:




    After a little TLC: You can see the zytel handle is a little worse for wear.

    Rocks at the top of the list. Best one jammed between tines, making everything shake.... Took some effort to pound rock out from tines.

    Found an old almost buried deep enough red brick chimney on an old house site while prepping the yard for the new house on old site.... slip clutch is awesome.

    Whisle tilling a field for a pardner tree farm, I found a land slide he lost of his plow a year or two before..... Heck of a racket and out spits his lost but now found land slide from the rear of the tiller.

    Found the concrete remnant of a clothesline post, ended up digging it out with the FEL so I could finish tilling the neighbors garden.
