    I could of stayed there an hour watching the man in the first one, split wood. I wanted to jump in there and try it. I asked him if I could and he kind of smiled and rolled his eyes at me. He said, "we are saving digits today". He had a good sense of humor. Him and his son (driver) were also part of a local blue grass band and man, they can play. I went to see them later in the fall at a festival.

    Not sure if the last one is a seeder but it's my best guess. I seem to recall my grandfather having one very similar to it. I was just a boy, everything is foggy from back then.

    That splitter looks like an engineering marvel. I would like to know how it works. Got any more photos of it?

    My splitter has only one moving part, not counting the driveshaft.

    On my monitor #1 and #3 would use a touch of contrast (some black). As a general rule, all B&W photographs need a black in them (as a baseline tone).

    I will look. I am friends with these guys now, maybe I can go over there and get some more. I noticed they were busy working the land the other day so not sure how accessible they are going to be this time of the year. They also added a crap load of cattle to their dairy operation, plus huge building to work them.

    Probably not going to help much but here they are. I just got off phone with the son and they are slammed with the farm, he said to call him next weekend.

    I purposely bumped the clarity to give you a little more detail in the hardware. Reason they look a little over processed.

    I believe that's actually a shingle mill vice a plain splitter. Most of the bits and bobs are the mechanism used to increment the bolt along so it can cut the same thickness slab each time.

    Edited to add: Yes, that is a two-row seeder.

    That helps a lot. I thought it was a splitter, as in splitting logs for the stove.
