The old buildings were in a park in Leksand. Some of them included period tools like this old hand operated grindstone.
Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.
Still looks serviceable to me !

I like these machines which lived and keep an undeniable charm

So, did one have to turn the handle while holding the knife to the stone? Or was this a two person operation?

@beach: Well, the tool is a couple of hundred years old, and the instruction manual didn't survive. Besides, if it had survived it would have been in Swedish, so it wouldn't help me.
Composed well to show off the details

A fine looking machine, but required lots of work to be succesful.
