Collection Showcases Handmade Implements and Farm Tools
Unique handmade farm tools, implements and equipment abound in one Marylander's collection
Vintage engines, tractors, saw blades and bells: Buck Gladhill's collection is all encompassing.
Buck Gladhill with a stone crusher used on the farm to crush rock for gravel driveways.
A handmade sausage grinder.
An oak jack used when wagon wheels needed to be greased.
The Model T was pressed into service on the farm. When this wooden belt pulley (left) was attached to the rear wheel of a Model T, belt power was available to grind grain. On the right is a handmade butter churn.
More handmade tools: a yoke for oxen, a mousetrap and a collar used to wean calves.
Improving on the original: This factory-made potato cutter was mounted on a handmade stand, allowing cut pieces to roll into a container on the floor.
