Rough and Tumble Time of Harvest

Our visit to R&T started at the blacksmith shop.
The first thing I spotted was this great old press. The fly weights gave the device a great feel and you SURE would not want to have your fingers under the ram after giving them a good spin!
A fine old stove to keep the shop bearable in the winter.
A bellows to pump the fire.
R&T's Shay runs on maybe a mile of track pulling several passenger cars. A great ride on an old engine..
I have no idea why but the movie camera images that I use are refusing to show up. Click where the movie camera image SHOULD be and the link will work.

Under a tent there was a lively trade in apple cider and apple bread. This old press was demonstrated later in the day.
This note was sent by Bob B. and received on 2 February 2010. This sort of addition to our pages is always much appreciated!
I know nothing about tractors so I just took a lot of photos and hope that you tractor enthusiasts will find something to enjoy.
A lot of these photos are quite dark as the built in flash on my camera is just not up to the task in these conditions.
