Still more

Are you bored with this stuff? If so, I am about done with it for now. But I do want to go back when lighting is better.
I am not sure what any of these are for....
The one above looks like it is made the hold something. One would put something between those jaws and stand on the lever to hold it while working on it. It really reminds me of Roger's stitching pony.
Now the thing above--I hope some one knows what it is used for. None of us have a clue. It is made to open and fit around something. I would even welcome guesses. It would give me something to research.
**************
We got our break from the heat! Yesterday the hight here at our house was 97ºF! Roger and I both laughed about thinking that 97ºF was cool. And supposed to remain cool for the days to come. Even later on I think there are a couple days with the highs only being in the upper 80's.

All I want to do is sit outside and read...

You photographed some great stuff, Rose. Yes, the pickers would love all these items.

Good shots. I'm no help on the purpose of these items.

I've been enjoying all the photos you've posted. While I don't know what those tools are used for, I'm sure it would hurt mighty bad if a hand got pinched in one!
Temps. have cooled down here too; the humidity has gone but not for long. There's a hot blast coming from out west that ought to arrive by weeks end.

sorry i can't help with identification but i would guess all these things are used on a farm though. it's been cool here too. i'm lovin' it. you can actually step outside and breathe or read in your case, :) if you get the chance to read outside hope you enjoy yourself. have a great day~

Have no idea sorry, but I know my hubby would love looking at these.

Ellie said...

I've no idea -but I showed them to Danny he reckons they are for farming and maybe the the last one is for collecting wheat or something.

We have 99 here today. And humid too. Makes me melt. I don't know what any of those items are, so I'm not much help! LOL

Hi Rose, I have no idea what all of those 'things' are....

We waited all day long for some RAIN and cooler weather.... Didn't ever happen. We're still waiting... Dang it.
Hugs,
Betsy

Glad it's cooler but 97° sure sounds hot to me. :))

I asked Mike what he thought these all were. Not sure on the first...he things it might put an edge on metal or something like that in those rollers on the right. The middle one is a foot controlled vise as you thought. The last one he says is for lifting hay, like into the barn. The bottom opens up. Does any of that seem likely to you?
