(One of) Today's project(s) involved making a certain modification to an otherwise nearly useless tool. For those of you who grew up on or now live on a dairy, you may know what this is:
For those of you who might be wondering what that thing is, it is a wrench-like tool for an old style DeLaval Cream Separator. As you can see in the second picture, there are only 2 studs on the original tool, which makes it very hard to turn the nut with... Soooooooo, I found a little scrap of steel in the steel bin, drilled a hole in it, cut it off to the right length, bolted it all together, and Presto! It works much better!
Now the wrench actually stays on the nut, and you don't skin your knuckles trying to loosen it...
Best get to bed,
