Ring was the earlist form of rotary power used on farms in the
UK. Until the beginning of the 19th Century the only forms of
power available on farms were horses and water. The invention
of the Jinney Ring allowed horse power to be converted to drive
farm, previously manual, equipment. The horse would walked
around a large wheel with cogs which turned shafts and then
belts and chains of the farm equipment such as corn grinders,
sugar beat shredders and mangles. In some parts of the country
the Jinney Ring was called "gin-gangs" from which came the word
"engine". The picture above shows a real Jinney ring at the
Jinney Ring Craft Centre.
