The stuff on craigslist near me is mostly expensive no-till stuff. There is an old wooden Ontario drill (I also see these a lot at auctions). Any idea if they are any good?

They are pretty simple machines really. Lots of moving parts though.
Nothing wrong with a wooden wheel one if it isn't worn out, rusted stuck or the wood rotted. Mine was a steel wheeled JD Van Brunt.
If you go to look at one bring a hi lift jack and raise one wheel up. Then open the top of the hopper and watch to see if all the little gears are turning on the shaft as you turn the wheel.
Then do the same thing on the other side as most of them are actually two machines built side by side.
The one I had was slightly stuck when I got it but I got it freed up by spraying PB Blaster everywhere inside for a few days and gently rocking the wheel. Worked good after that.
JMS MN from this board taught me a lot about drills.
There is a trip lever (or two trip levers) on the front that you pull with a rope to engage the ground drive that makes them work.
Neat machines.
