This engine here - I use it for light and for bruising.

Interviewer: Uh-huh. [Engine starts up and runs] It also gives you your electricity?

Oh yes, oh yes. It lights up the place for me.

Interviewer: Now is this a part of the original equipment, John?

No, no, no. I installed this engine myself here.

Interviewer: Is it quite an old engine itself?

Yes. This engine - Was during the war I got this engine and it was used for lighting and I just have it for its lighting ability and - Now, then.

Interviewer: I'll get away from the sound of it a little bit. And then you've got your -

Yes.

Interviewer: Is that for the bruising machine here?

This is the bruising - This is the bruising machine here which I drive off that - off that engine. Maybe I should put the belt on it and it -

Interviewer: Oh, it might help. You've got your wide belt that you're putting around the wheel and -

Yes, yes.

Interviewer: - going to connect this to your, to your engine. [Engine stops and starts up again]

Now this machine we use for bruising corn and -

Interviewer: Now you've got the hopper at the top there?

The hopper at the top here. See the bruised corn?

Interviewer: Ah, yes.

Which is used for feeding animals. [Engine dies down]

Interviewer: That's wonderful seeing it operate.

Now then. That's the corn after it's been bruised an we use it for feeding cows an sheep an that.

Interviewer: Now, is this a machine that you'll see much around now in use?

Oh yes, there are many farms have these machines still. They use - they bruise their corn an their barley for feeding their cattle with. Bruised barley is very good feeding an so is - so - bruised oats is very good feeding too.

Interviewer: How old will that machine be?

That machine is, let me see, about ninety years old.

Interviewer: It's great, isn't it?

Yes, yes.

Interviewer: I think the - Gives you just a feeling not, not quite of the past, I wouldn't like just to say the past but the - the way of life not too long ago -

Oh not too long ago. That's right.

Interviewer: - which perhaps is away for good.

Maybe, and maybe not. If hard times were coming, and if we had - if we experienced famine as people in other countries are doing - one never knows what might happen again
