VIDEO: The business of transforming hay trolleys
NOTES: Bryan Eads of Charleston, W.Va., came across a cool, industrial-looking device in an antique shop a few years ago. “What’s that?” he asked. It was a hay trolley, a cast-iron device that was a key piece of farm machinery in the late 19th century through to the mid-20th century. It was used for hoisting hay bales into haylofts. Eads had the bright idea — literally — to turn one into a chandelier. Now, he spends much of his free time making hay trolley chandeliers and lamps in the workshop beside his home. For more on his trolley pieces, visit, the website of the Lewisburg, W.Va., gallery where he sells his pieces.
