Oh just thought of it, probably my best 'lost & found' is hard to even believe....
Old 3 point Case corn planter, I lost a gauge wheel when I was in my teens plnting with it. You'd think you couldn't lose that in a planted field, but I guess I'm special. Took one off the parts planter dad had.
Two years later, was planting corn in that field, and suddenly the tractor got pulled over to one side, the frame of the planter actually bent a little - the marker (a spike tooth, not a disk on that planter) had hooked the lost depth gauge wheel and was dragging it hard.
Had to straighten out the frame - just 2x2 metal tube - and back at it.
I still have no idea how a whole gauge wheel could stay lost for 2 years, it should be a lump on top of the field when planting. But that the planter of all things refound it's own part.....
Like you say, makes you wonder what all is out there.
