This publication developed by the MAAS Conservation Team is for anyone who cares for historic farm
machinery — whether you work in a museum, community group, are a private collector, have an interest in
history or just own a piece of old farm equipment. This book offers practical advice that may help to prolong
the life of your historic farm machinery.
Everything is prone to wear and tear, but the simple measures discussed in this book could help slow the rate
of deterioration of historic farm machinery. This will extend its life so that current and future generations can
enjoy and learn about past farming practices in Australia.
