I came across a few "fingers" for a finger weeder, but they seem to be too big and too stout to fit the MKO-21 model. Did they make more than one style?

Dearborn also made one but I have no idea if they used the same style or different style fingers. Ferguson had 2 styles that I know of but I thought the only difference was one folded up at the ends and the other was just a shorter one and did not fold.

Here is a picture of one.

It is officially a MKO-21 Weeder, but is commonly called a finger weeder.

The tines were springy and flicked out small weeds while leaving the crop alone.

Thanks Jeff.

What part of the country were those used in? and what crops were they used for?
