Amish Engineering. Jimmy Rigged. Duct Tape and Bailing Wire. Whatever you call it, most farms would not be able to function without it.
I just stumbled upon a great blog called “There, I Fixed it.” It’s dedicated to all of those amateur engineers out there who made it work, even if the probably shouldn’t have. Below are a couple of pictures but I highly recommend checking out the whole website. It’s really quite amazing. Hopefully nobody recognizes their own handiwork.
