Magnificent. I see a lot of such devices in my campaign, they are left abandoned when it would be a good idea to detonate them in a place that brings them together so that the younger generation can see what the tools of our youth looked like.

another fine piece of engineering nicely composed and treated. Quality machinery was built to last in those days, a concept we would do well to recapture

Magnifique outil de travail qui date certainement des années cinquante et même peut-être d'avant guerre.
Qui évoque en moi des souvenirs d'enfance durant les grandes vacances.

This, on the other hand, needed the collaboration of an animal, such as an ox or a horse.
But the seat does not seem to be very comfortable. It was necessary to wear padded underwear.
