Cherry Pitter

This is an interesting machine I spotted at the 2005 Young Rally. A cherry pitter:

It was an amazing machine to see working and I wish I had taken a lot more photos of it operating.

Thanks for the pictures.
Yes, a lot of machinery amases me in seeing it work.
The barbed wire machine was another one that made me think....who thought that up?
There must have been a lot of trial and error when machinery, such as this, was first designed and built.
As for cherry pitter. Say that ten times while inebriated.

Cheers Scott

Another machine I saw once in operation but now retired and at the Power House Museum from memory was the machine that made mouse traps. It was huge and looked so complicated but obviously worked very well and made an imense amount of traps.
