"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

What Is That?

Okay, all you city slickers, it's time to play: What Is That?

This piece of farm machinery has probably not been used on most farms for several decades.  I would guess that only a handful of self-sustaining type farmers would still be using something like this.

 I spent part of the morning yesterday ripping out the old, rotten, wooden floor of this thing.  I spent part of the afternoon coating the new pine boards with linseed oil in preparation to be bolted in tomorrow.

One clue is that I'll bet that Gene Logsdon not only knows what this thing is, but I'll bet he loves what it does.


  1. I'm not sure what it is really meant for, but it is where my wife will soon be making me sleep if I can't figure out what's wrong with the garbage disposal. :)

  2. Another hint: I'll bet Obama has one of these!
