Farm thingie, part…finished


Well, the bosses left the office for lunch yesterday – FINALLY, so I got my camera out and took a few shots of the whole contraption that is this farm tool.  There is a piece of wood missing from that top section – you can kind of see the groove where it would fit.  My guess is that you would load that top section with the corn, crank the wheel, which moves the bottom two pieces, causing it to sort the corn through the grates somehow.  I really need to see this thing in action with some actual corn, but that is not going to happen.

    beautiful – particularly in b&w.

    I’m sure they wouldn’t notice if you walked in someday with a gigantic armful of corn. Really. 😉
