That's a great story Classic !! I was on the phone with my uncle today to tell him his sediment bowl arrived . I mentioned to him that I found out the 'Make and model'
of that . He laughed . He then told me a great story of how he was about 10 years old (65 years ago) and was playing with this cutting cattails to make a fishing path to the river , could barely swing it around , then my GGF came up and handed him a hand sickle . he was able to do that a bit better. He says he still has that tool somewhere and will try to find it as well. I started collecting old farm tools just as a novelty to hang on my garage. I had a vender at the South Haven Mich . Flywheeler show , ( the guy I got the DB cultivator and BTplow from) give me an old rusty meat-hook , it came with a story that he plowed it up out of the cornfield one day . I was telling him how I just like oddball things like this and he reached over and plucked it out of a pile and gave it to me. It hangs here now .
I turned an old ugly garage into my work shop , With a 'rustic' theme.
