Cartwright’s Tools
| 5 IMAGES | No Comments

The open-air museum on the Kiekeberg has a large number of outposts around it. Besides the museum farm Wennerstorf and the mill museum Moisburg also an old cartwright from the 30’s in Langenrehm belongs to the »inventory«. The cartwrights were responsible for the production of wooden wagon wheels and of course they also produced many other wooden tools.

The museum cartwright in Langenrehm has been under reconstruction since 2018 and opens its doors every Sunday between May and October. The museum had received this cartwright in the original condition from the 30s. The only modern thing from this time was the electric lighting and the electric motor to drive the belt-driven machines. As I have heard, tools and machine parts can still be found and assigned to the tools with trained wheelwrights.
