We once bought a rotary muck spreader- with a bent shaft. It stared out fine but ended up with the flails beaing holes in the drum.

My mother was with me, and she worried, "Do you think these men mind having their photos taken?"

No-one objected.

I'd be intrigued to know who any of these folk were.
