Collectibles Corner

March 2013 issue  

 

Eclipse Sheep Shearing Machine  

      This antique Eclipse sheep shearing machine was owned by the founders of Southwestern Wyoming Wool Warehouse, in Rock Springs , Wyoming , and remains at the store as an interesting tool from a former era. These hand cranked machines were common from the early 1900s into the 1940s. The photo above shows a Massachusetts college agriculture class using such machines in 1937. An old farm equipment catalog describes the machine and shearing head.

 

If you have antique or vintage saddles, tack, and items worn or used in the West that you would like to be featured in the Collectibles Corner, please contact Rocky Mountain Rider at 888-747-1000 or info@rockymountainrider.com.

Also, if you have unusual old piece of Western equipment or memorabilia that you don’t know what it is, or what it was used for, send us a photo and we will ask our readers to tell us what they know about it.
