Fence-Making Machines

Missouri collector focuses on fence-making machines.

Unnamed version of a wire-twisting fence machine
This unnamed version of a wire-twisting fence machine features two frame rails and five twisting cogs, all powered via the poured chain from the hand crank at the top. In this demonstration, the Eddys are using only three twisting cogs to locate wooden slats in the formation of wire-bound picket fencing. This machine could also be used to make strands of twisted barbed wire or even snow fencing.
