TAKE TIME TO REPAIR FARM MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 October 1914

TAKE TIME TO REPAIR FARM MACHINERY. The rainy day affords a good oppor tunity for inuking repairs of farm ma chinery. If a man lias no blacksmith toxk of his own, ho can gqfc everything ready that lieods to go to tlio shop. In a half day tho blacksmith will luivo everything in good shape for him at a nominal cost. There aro many far mers who do not put tlioir machinery away in tho autumn until they havu seen that all neccssary repairs are made to put them in good running shape for the next year. This is no doubt a good plan. Thero will be no need for tho farmer to cliaugo his mind with any responsibility along this lino when ho is rushed in the spring or tho yoar. X am convinced that it does not pay to work witji machinery that is not in good reiJtur. A stitch in lime savos nino msu' bo an old adage, but it is a good out. The follow who worries along with tv broken iarm im plement may be surprised somo day when the wholo thing goes to pieces like "the wondorful one HOBS shay." D. No...

LUBRICATING AXLES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 October 1914

LUBRICATING AXLES. Oil to axles is best governed by the hug of "little and often" (writes a Canadian contemporary.) If too luuch is use<l it exudes at the onds, gathers dust, and thus the lessening of the friction is not so great, while oil is being wasted. In nearly every caso where the lubricant is wasted* it is fctulF not fit to he used, fur a goo^i lubricant costs enough to keep the average man from allowing it to waste. Oil that "gums" much is unfit to bo used. Castor oil is a splendid lubri ..i for axles, but used alone may gum too much. This is corrected by the addition of kerosene or lard. Somo waggons aro yet made unprovided with metal shields or '1 tliiniblea,1 being banded with steel; for these some tal low may bo used, as it is one of the best lubricants when iron and wood are brought in contact. Pinc-tar is n good addition to the lubricant for wag gon axles aud is a part of most of the "axlo greases" sold. Plumbago is another good addition; its fine par ticle...

SOME POINTS ON PLOUGH SHARPENING. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 October 1914

SOME POINTS ON PLOUGH SHARPENING. The man 011 the farm who has a small blacsksmith's shop of his own must know a few of the fundamentals of shop work before lie can malie any use of hia shop. There is nothing more useful to the man who has a small shop than knowing how to shar pon plough lays, for good work can not be done with a tlull or badly shar pened plough. Tho principal point to remember in plough work is getting the lay shaped and tempered right. Good work oan not be done with a lay poorly shaped. A little mistake along this liue will increaso the draft and thus increase the power necessary to pull the plough. In sharpening the lay always draw the edge of tho snare with the face to the anvil making the bevel underneath. Tho iay should fit the mould-board as snugly as possible. To tell whether tho lay is properly shaped, place it on the floor or bench just as it would rest in the furrow. If the entire cutting edge touches the floor it is set right. Tho point of the lay should...
