Went to Cedar Falls last weekend for the 48th show. Weather was dry and cool. In fact it was so cool that i had to run a heater in the trailer at night to stay warm. Since we had a drought this yr it was like sitting in a big pile of sand, with a few dead leaves here and there. I forgoit my camera, so my son took some pictures of my stuff, and not any other stuff for some reason, with his phone. I had a theme of hauling carts this yr, took along some seeders and my rope making equipment. Must have made a 1000', 10' at a time and gave them out to kids at the show. Had a pretty good time, got to watch tractor/truck pulls 3 days running, paraded my Suburban and cart, and talked wit ha lot of people who "had one of those".

You sure have a lot of neat stuff! I've never seen a rope maker.
I just learned of the DB tractors about 4 months ago , but they just just don't seem as plentiful here.Thanks for posting the pictures!

Nice looking machines.
We were the "Rope makers" at our community Bible school for several years.
We used twine string doubled and twisted. When twisted enough, you hold the center of the rope and let the ends go, and they will twist up on them selves making the rope 4 thicknesses of twine. I have made a few starting with 4 length and ending with a thicker rope of 8 strans. It is pretty easy for the young kids to do.
We had an electric rope maker in Boy Scouts....same principal...it used 6 lengths of twine to start with, and we made ropes 30-40 feet long!
