Field Tools

These tools belonged to my father, Gilbert Cardinal, prior to 1920. Most of them were probably in 1917 when we moved onto a farm at Oneida, Wisconsin.

  • Double-bitted axe (handle replaced about 1965)
  • Scythe
  • Wooden hand hay rake (I turned replacement teeth in 1985)
  • Garden spade
  • Two three-tined pitch forks
  • Corn knife
  • Post hole digger
  • Buck saw
  • Lantern
  • Short-handled square shovel (this was discarded by C&NW Ry in 1920's)
