    I know this isn't technically the place to list stuff but I know itll get more attention on here.

    I'm helping a landlord clean up around his place and I found some parts for a Ford planter, I know some guys on here have them so I thought I'd see if someone can use them over them going to scrap. Not sure exactly what model they fit. There may be more parts I find as well.

    Theres 4 wheels, 12 of the blue corn plates and 4 of the white ones. $2/ each for the plates plus shipping, the wheels can be had for shipping costs.

    The white plate is for soybeans (beans) at a "heavy rate"
    The blue plate is a corn plate for "Medium rate large, flat, thick grade seed" - back in the "old days" corn seed was graded for size and shape....it's not done that way any more. So you have to run a trial with your seed to see what plates works best.

    The plastic plates are also prone to breaking if you do not have a reversing clutch on your planter...so having some spares is always nice.

    They should work fine on a 309 ford plate planter.

    Dan, if your looking for something in particular I might be able to help. I don't openly sell mine because I still use my planter, but if you need something I'll help another habitat nut out.

    Sorry Dan, I worked out a deal with BBT awhile ago. He just hasn't had the time to ship them to me. Maybe J-Bird can help you out.

    j-bird your Grace surpasses understanding! I'm humbled and honored. I don't really have any perceived, pressing need, but those plates are valuable beyond any price. I just wanted to be sure they found a home-- and they did find a good home!
    Again, humbled and honored by your consideration! Thank you and blessing be on you....

    Just doing the right thing in my book is all... It's not often I can help....so when I can...I try to. I have gotten a lot of help from my fellow "habitat junkies" over the years and I try to re-pay that when I can....and opportunity comes in many forms. I'm happy you appreciated my offer to assist.
