The boat oars are not part of the seed cleaner below. We spotted it at the Litchfield Picker's market today. I am not sure it is functional. Seed was shaken across screens and past a fan to remove weeds and chaff so that seed would plant evenly. We spent many after school evenings cleaning wheat, clover seed, and soybeans for planting the next year. With patented genetics, we don't see much of this any more.
