Well, my knuckle/gearbox housing for the tedder is going to run me about $350. Not as bad as I thought, although I do have two more quotes, one for $407 and one for $550. Luckily it's broken on the right side. The left side is no longer available.

I'm going to wait a week or so before ordering anything. There are two auctions coming up where I may get lucky and find another tedder to rob parts off of, or use this one for parts.

Speaking of that option, the Agco dealer down the road has one, same model, field-ready (he claims) that he'll take $800 for (Had I known that before Saturday, I probably wouldn't have bought this one, but the last one I priced was $1800). That may be what I end up doing. Park this one in the weeds somewhere out of the way and rob parts off of it as I need them.
