A few photos from the 2016 Goschenhoppen Folk Festival

Horse powered (treadmill) grain thresher


Fence hole post drill


Foot powered lathe


Pit saw set-up


Wooden geared rope maker
Standing end


Travelling end - demonstrator stands on plank and turns handle- whole apparatus travels forward as twist in rope develops


Cobblestone maker



Knife and other blade sharpener - note water dripping on stone


Several years ago at the festival a fellow craftsman asked me to make a small fish trap to catch sunfish and other small fish in his farm pond.  He never picked up the trap so I kept the trap for display.

Brilliant, what an assortment of ingenious machinery.  
I like the rope maker especially.
