    I’d guess the “couple of devices you don’t even want to know about” are bloodless castraters. Ewww.

    In Hadley, MA there is (or used to be, haven’t been back in a while) a free farm museum that has loads of these creepy devices. I once played with an apple peeler just like the one in the picture.

    The item in the picture is for skinning fruit. We’ve stopped in the last couple years, but my parents would take us apple picking at an orchard. We’d get home and use exactly the same device to skin apples for making pie. Stick an apple on the 3 pronged horizontal holder and turn the crank. The apple spins around while the blade moves side to side. As long as you have a sharp blade, it does a pretty good job and leaves tasty apple skins to nibble on while cooking.

    *An actual gadget referenced in “Raising Sheep the Modern Way.” Ouch.
