Thompson Seeder hinges

Postby TJG » Wed Apr 18, 2012 8:24 pm

I'm finishing my Thompson Seeder (previously posted) and I'm missing 2 of the male-side hinges. I don't expect anyone to have them laying around, but does someone have any close, or know of a source for this type of hinge? The male pin is 11/64 diameter x 5/8 long.

Also, there was one pin to fasten the "drive rope" in the hole. Again, anyone know of a source for such things?

If you can't find anything acceptable and have an art foundry (brass and bronze sculptures) nearby, they can easily make a pattern and cast them. I had that done on a Thomas grain drill that I restored. Cost was by the pound and reasonable in my mind.
