As someone that has only been pulling cranks for a couple years I'm wondering where and when the multiple pole crank pulling got its start?

Thanks

Not sure on the exact timeline but I know guys down here in MS have been doing it for a good while. I think they pushed cranks alot too even before that.

My Great Uncle and Dad pulled wooden dive bombers back in the 40s. And they weren't the first.

Yup, my granddad pulled big-o's and other cranks in the late 40's, before that they spoonplugged.

No worries Mooney, it's cooler in the shade of the rock anyhow and them rollie pollies are more fun to play with than most folks think.
