Old MachinesNovember 22nd, 2010 in member junk
I like old hand turned machines. The top machine has 2 triangle files that go up & down. I think it was used in an cotton gin as a sharpener. The second is some kind of mower that is held against your hip and takes 2 people to work. 3 & 4 was used to measure wire as it was rolled up on the left. #5--the funnel looking thing is used to weigh live chickens. Put them in head first.
