Stone breaker, Rackwick, Westray, Orkney
This is a Baxter's Improved Stone Breaker with patent knapping motion, made by WH Baxter Ltd of Leeds. It lies adjacent to the road which runs behind the links at Rackwick.

The poetic instructions on it read,

'Lubricate this breaker well
tightened bolts prevent all rapping
and be sure all parts are clean
that's the way to keep it
"knapping".'
