If rust is your favorite color like mine is you gotta love these.First 2 pics are of an old Buffalo Forge. Commanly used on ranches to heat branding irons. Common fuel was cow chips and Mesquite wood when away from the barns. Used also by Blacksmiths with coal as fuel. Hard to find with the hood still intact. Found on old ranch forge has given way to rust, and remains frozen. Buffalo Forge was started in 1878 in Buffalo NY.Also had a Canadian unit.. Pic 4 is cast iron well pully for drawing water from dog wells and cisterns. Pic 4 is 2 of my 4 cotton beam scales with 1 pea. The pea (weight) are usually lost. Scales are 120 lbs. and 180 lbs.
