    I hope that I'm allowed to do this, if not, then please delete the thread Bryan. :)

    The contest is to identify various objects that I've found in the barn, and elsewhere on the farm. The first person to answer the question correctly wins 10 of my InstaFree dollars (that's if Bryan is prepared to transfer them - if not you will have to accept congrats as your reward).

    So here is the first mystery object. You have to tell us its purpose.

    Clue: it's not for general farming use.

    This is the second image, and it should be a bit easier.
    Clue: It was pulled by a pony

    Post edited due to double posting.

    If you aren't sure what the items are, then just have a guess, you can try as many times as you like.

    The first one looks like some sort of waste shovel.

    Thanks for your post. It's actually used before the product becomes waste.

    Here is a third item
    Clue: It was manufactured in the 1940s

    I found number 4 interesting. The question is - why are the gear teeth made out of wood?
    Clue: It's nothing to do with water.

    Number 3: Wagon used to move barrels or bags?
    Number 4: Some device used for pressing soil maybe.

    Sorry to mislead you with that, it's been outside on the edge of an open fronted shed for over 20 years, so that's probably why it's turned green.
    So here we go with item number 5. It's the white buggy under the table that you need to identify. 5 IF$s for the name of the manufacturer, and another 5 for the model number.
    Clue: It's an English in concept and manufacture.

    Clue: Heavy lifting

    I guess the first object is quite difficult, and it was probably used primarily in England. It is a tool used by brewers in the manufacture of ale, and was used to turn the barley whilst it was sprouting.. The grain was spread across a floor to a depth of 4 or 5 inches, and it was watered lightly. This would cause the grain to start to sprout. It needed to be turned every couple of days to alow it to sprout evenly. The tool was pulled through the grain, and the sharp lower edge would lift the grain, and the triangular shape caused the grain to turn as it flowed over the top.

    Today's answer is that the second one is a seed drill, Dump the seeds in the hopper, and then the pony drags it across the field dispensing seeds through the pointed nozzle underneath.

    Number 3 was used by the airborn troops in the second world war. It is light, and can be dismantled easily. It served a dual function. It can be used as a type of stretcher to move wounded soldiers without having to stand erect - the two ropes cn be used to pull the cart over rough ground. It can also be used to move amunition and other supplies to reinforce a defensive position.

    OK - here are the answers.
    #4 - I may have misled you slightly with this one. The shaft is part of the drive mechanism for a well pump. The teeth are not wooden because of the water, but because of the gases that may be released through the well. The wooden teeth will not create a spark to ignite the gases.
    #5 is a Sinclair C5 electric car.
    #6 Is a guage to indicate the angle of the jib on a crane. Increasing the angle reduces the safe lifting weight. It would have had a pointer to show the current angle.
