    Barn pictures

    Some pics of the two barns left in the neighborhood---the rest were either torn down or burnt down [had a volunteer fireman that liked to watch barns burn--he went to jail]. As far as we can tell the were built around 1860. The timbers in the first barn amaze me. The barn is 60 feet long---the sill and the plate --and the beam at the hip in the roof go the full 60 feet. The sill and the plate beams are 18 in's square the one at the hip is 12 in's square. They have been saw'n in a mill. How in h---l did the get these timbers up there? The section to the right is a tobacco barn that was moved and attached to the main barn around 1900. The second pic is of another barn with a field stone silo that my dad helped build in 1915. It is 50 ft high---inside dia is 16 ft.---the walls are 18 in's thick. The rest of the barn is in pretty sad shape.

    Re-completed My Inherited Wrench Set

    During my working career I was employed by a wholesale hardware distributor. They were a stocking distributor for S-K tools. They sold mostly to mom and pop hardware stores in the northeastern part of the US. They sold a lot of S-K tools, it was one of there better lines. During the 30+ years that I worked there I doubt that the amount of defective S-K tools that came back would fill a 12 qt pail. They are good tools.
