South Dakotan stays close to roots with collection
Dave Thompson uses this 10 hp Sandwich throttle-governed engine to power his 6-hole corn sheller. Since Sandwich, Ill., is Dave’s hometown, collecting Sandwich Mfg. Co. engines and farm equipment is a natural for him.
Chaff fills the air as the sheller goes to work.
Dave with his Sandwich corn sheller in original condition, which draws a lot of interest at area shows, particularly when he demonstrates the piece using his Sandwich 10 hp engine.
Dave’s 6-hole Sandwich sheller was made to be pulled by a team of horses.
