Anyone have some from the 50 years old or older crowd that they like to use? Or even replicas of them?
You are right about the pulley method to help farmers get things up in the top loft. I do know if that whetstone is like my husbands it is some kind of heavy.A lot of the old barns had a pulley arrangement at the end of the barn for using hay forks to bring the hay up to the loft. That would have made it quite easy to get it up there.
