..good video's !!

...After the second world war, my Dad brought a small, run down farm...The elderly old bloke  who had previously owned it, used to come around on his horse   and cart, to help  Dad , on various ''clean up '' type jobs ..He did this for some years ...I well remember the scythe being used ...and the frequent warnings to a litle boy as to the danger of messing with it....

Someone more knowledgeable than me please jump in. ...... these people are all bent at the waist when cutting. I was always told to stand straight. If not, the scythe was not adjusted to you correctly. I do know the scythe must be adjusted to the user to cut correctly.
