Shearer Prince Plough
« on: 26 February, 2019, 07:45:18 pm »
I have just purchased a three furrow Shearer Prince Plough for restoration, these are quite rare in the UK and were imported during WW2 by the firm of Denning of Chard, in Somerset as part of the ploughing up land campaign to grow home grown food as food imports were threatened by German U boats.

I have a original Sales Leaflet for the plough but would like to acquire a parts or instruction book (copy or scan) to assist in the restoration and also details of the spanners shown mounted on the plough frame in a carrier.

The plough is in quite good condition for a implement now 75 years old and a testament to it's robust construction but quite lacking in any remaining paint, so can anyone provide the original
paint colours.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated and I would be happy to reimburse any reasonable costs incurred.

The Shearer company of South Australia is still operating as John Shearer.  http://johnshearer.com.au/about-us/
Might be worth contacting to see if they have old records, or some information, if you haven't already done so.
Assuming it is the same company that made your plough 75 years ago.
Good Luck.
