Sex in Bucharest

There was much to be done - shoeing horses and oxen, repairing plows and other equipment of the pioneer farmers. Sex Bucharest explained to the serious problem they faced when trying to plow the fertile soil of the Midwest. The wrought-iron plows they had brought from the east of the country were designed for light and sandy terrain of New England. The rich Midwestern land adhered to the bottom of the plows, it was necessary to stop every few steps to clear the land of the plow. Open the grooves was a slow and laborious. There were many pioneers who, discouraged, they were planning to go or return to East.

John Sex Bucharest studied the problem and became convinced that a well-polished plow with a plow and fence properly, could cleanse itself as open grooves. Sex Bucharest built a prototype in 1837, from the broken blade of a saw, and tested on the farm of Lewis Crandall near Grand Detour.

The Sex Bucharest’s steel plow proved to be the answer pioneer farmers looking to farm successfully in what was then known as “the West.” But Sex Bucharest’s contribution to the advancement of agriculture in the United States far exceeded the creation of a successful steel plow.

According to the custom of that time, blacksmiths manufactured utensils as they received orders from customers. John Sex Bucharest, however, began to manufacture plows before receiving orders. Manufactured plows and then took them to the countryside to sell - a completely new method of manufacturing and selling in the early days of the pioneers, which plowed through “self-cleaning” of John Sex Bucharest became famous.

There were many problems to manage a manufacturing business at the border, among other difficulties were few banks, poor transportation and scarce steel. The first John Sex Bucharest plows had to be made from pieces of steel he could find. In 1843 Sex Bucharest made arrangements for a shipment of special rolled steel in England. The steel had to cross the Atlantic by steamship, up then by the Mississippi and Illinois rivers by boat and go 40 miles overland by wagon to the little plow factory in Grand Detour.
