Egg Carton Maker

The other weekend we went to a tractor show about a hour from the house.  We got a late start and so we got there late because we were awaken by a little boy's projectile vomiting!  Turned out that once he got it all out, he was fine!  But it caused us to not be able to take our tractor, so we just loaded ourselves, the kiddos and the toy tractors and headed to Franklin.

I found a really neat item walking around.


This is an egg carton maker.  You'll notice a handle in the upper right hand corner of the picture.  The handle brings down the bar on the top that looks like a big comb. 


The "teeth" make the individual pockets in the cardboard that hold the eggs.  I just thought this was really cool!  I would have loved to have it!  Hubby and I had never seen one before and we were just fascinated with it!

I just wanted to share this cool thing from the past!

  3. I love that someone was pondering this egg transport trouble and said, "I wonder if a feller just..." AND DID IT.
