I have one of these. This one isn't mine, but looks like it. It's a Coates Tireman pneumatic tire changer. I inherited it. I had never seen it used, let alone used it myself, until a few years ago. I did a couple of front tires just for grins. Well, they may have saved some labor, but they're still real physical work. I put it back after that and haven't used it since.

goldenrod fence stretcher, fencing pliers,

Still living in the stone age here mader😄

Have fence pliers, stretchers, roll of tie wire and small bucket of staples in every rig that goes out to the pastures. 

Saddles have pliers holder and staple pocket (if no saddle bags)

Our Morris rod weeded is probably a prime example of that. Everyone had one at one time here but now they get sold for scrap price or less. Lots have been cut up and salvaged for the steel in them and hyd components.  Don’t have any pics of ours but it’s still here. Last time I used it was probably 20 years ago.  I was never a believer in it but some swore by them.

Would have done that with this silo if it was watertight. The crinkles in the side "sealed" it's fate!

They don’t work real well for grain. The seams are the wrong direction. They allow water to get in. Anyway that’s my experience with them. Had Milo in it and it molded BAD!

Got a few empty silos around here too

Ok I have to ask, what is it?

In the day before they made quart oil cans with a neck you got a can of oil literally. You needed a way to pour it out and punch the can. You shoved it in the can. It opened it then you could pour the oil out.

Probably one of the few guys under 40 that knew what that was

Beer can funnel if clean. Stab in can and pour it down your mouth
