Does anyone know what this is? I bought this at a local farmer's market in Michigan. It's all wood and has a small lever that expands the rounded ends. It almost looks like a big clamp of sorts.
How tall is it?
It looks like something to stretch leather--horse saddle, hats?
It looks like a leather stitching Pony Clamp that a harness maker would use. There are many examples on Pinterest.
I found one that sold on eBay for 55.00 plus shipping:
Blessings!! So excited to learn something new today!!
We would like to know what this piece of machinery is. Could you please help us? No one seems to know what it is. Your assistance would be really helpful.
This is an very old crop harvester used to harvest oats and wheat on the farm. This is a picture of a newer one that is also "old"
I'm trying to figure out what I have here. I am not so much worried about its value, but rather a possible mfg. or how in fact it was used and on what?
This looks like a piece of farm machinery that had a belt attached to it that ran down train and the wheels would turn and break it up before it was dropped into a bin. That is one of the times I saw this. The other time was on the back of a tractor in the field and it was used to harvest grain and when it turned the grain was put on a belt or in a shoot and it went to the back into a bin for harvest.
This looks like a reel mower of some sort, so it's either that, or some sort of thresher machine. Perhaps it was attached to a truck or some other sort of conveyance.
Normally items such as this were used like a nail to hold a fence together or for buildings to hold large beams in place. They were old wooden nails that they used for building.
Long ago wooden pegs were easier to come by , coming from natures trees and the art of carving them by hand . These craftsmen used these pegs to put together furniture, horse pulled wagons, and structures.
This looks like a stock cutter - used for corn, sugar cane.
What the heck is this heavy piece of old equipment? It looks somewhat similar to a horse-drawn fresno. Thanks for any help!
It looks almost like a piece of equipment that went on tractors to put the seeds in the ground during planting. I am thinking it is this or a bucket that is placed on a tractor that collects the grain during harvest.
Can someone tell me what was used for? I am thinking it may have been used when setting out plants and a specific amount of water was used per transplant!
What is this piece of equipment? I saw it a local fair. I apologize for the picture not being the greatest.
It might be some kind of a plow.
It looks like some type of vintage grain conveyor.
I agree, could it be part of a vintage thresher

It looks like an old corn sheller to me.
This piece is displayed outside a local business and I would like to know what it is called.
I live in rural southern Missouri and found these pieces of some type of equipment in the woods on my property. Can you tell me what that equipment might have been and approx. when it was commonly used?
This could have made trenches in the ground for planting.
Possibly an antique horse-drawn laying-off plow
