The practical, intriguing American devices contained in this handbook come from an era long before milking machines, pesticide sprayers, and industrial hay bailers. Designed to speed and simplify everything from making your own butter to protecting drain outlets to organizing and storing tools, the easy-to-make mechanisms you'll find here can be just as useful for today's farmer as they were for frontier homesteaders. Discover how to transform odds and ends-scraps of lumber from old building projects, leftover sections of barbed wire, the box spring sitting in the attic-into handy household implements.
