The southern members might not know this, the northern cline folks most likely will.
Looks like you have a hay bale saw mill and a team of oxen to haul it back to the loft.
Hay knife, have one.
People assume they are Ice saws that typically have an extended T handle on the end.
Dat deer is an ice saw bud, shure ting.
And if not I don't see why it couldn't be!
Hay saw, yup...my dad bought an antique one to use while building our straw-bale house, we used it for custom-shaping the bales.
Naw, I'd want rip-saw teeth for an ice saw. This thing is like a serrated knife...
Hay saw. Quite easy to find one in central Nebraska
Hay knife and part of a wooden yoke.
I would have bet your last dollar it was an ice saw. Never seen a hay saw before. joe
Yep, hay knife. I have one in the shop myself.
we got 'em here, too. lots of cattle raised here, and lots of hay ...
I would have cut the bale standing on its end.
I have a hay knife dad brought from Wisconsin where he grew up using it.
Ice was cut with a one handled two man saw . Usually a group effort .Men brought any thing that could haul heavy loads onto the lake even model T trucks . Grampa used a team of horses and wagon . Grand dad's horses were used to draw the ice blocks from the water onto the wagons and trucks.
They harvested ice during the winter, and stored in in a barn using hay to insulate between blocks of ice and sold the ice during the summer to folks that rented their cabins for their ice boxes. That was the only refrigeration people had in those days.
Yup, hay saw. They can be found down here in Texas, too.
your irritating thats what ............. damn yankees.........................................lol
Yes it is a hey saw! I added the southern folks comment to try to throw people off the trail, but the people here are too wise for that to work
Good job folks you know your working tools for sure!
Hey hay saw, ox yoke...
Now pass around the switchel!
That there's a rare thing: electrical conduit in a pole barn! Nicely done.
Oh, and we call the tool a bale saw, but we smoke a lot of dope around these parts.
Conduit...probably used to house electrical wires.
