The Standard Garden Tool Company
The top two thirds of these pages features a reprint of the circa 1905 catalog from the Standard Garden Tool company. Here you will see walking cultivators, seeders and even a sweet potato harvester. The prices are, of course, of that earlier time. Lots of superb appropriate technology design employing balance and ease of operation. If you will pardon the following pun, the footprints of these tools are ‘right on.’
Across the bottom third of those pages we are running some of the illustrations of cultivator shovel setups from Lynn R. Miller’s Horsedrawn Tillage Tools.
This book, originally published in 2001, has been out of print for 19 years. We are pleased to announce that it is once again available. Click Here to see an excerpt.
