Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. I will probably go buy the thing now, and figure out the best way to fix it based on all your help.
I will post a pic if I do buy it, as it is a really neat item and I've never seen anything like it before.
On the philosophical side, I don't buy antiques that are just to set on a shelf and collect dust. We do buy a lot of "antiques" and old stuff, but probably for a different reason than most folks do (at least city folk).
In my book, if I can't use the item to do a job I need doing, then I don't buy it. But I've discovered that a lot of the old stuff works much better for the jobs they were intended to do than most new stuff.
So I use an old Horn seeder (cuz it works really well, and only cost me a buck), a horse-drawn potato plow (hooked to my 54 year old tractor), and use 50-70 year old kerosene space heaters (even though "the gov'mnt" thinks little kids might burn themselves on them without lots of guards and stuff).
