I enjoyed Sam Moore's article in Farm Collector, May 2007, page 10, on the Avery Machinery Co. I own a 19-inch 1917 Yellow-Kid. It's in bad condition although all the iron is OK. I drew detailed drawings of all the wooden parts, but have not started fabrication. I wonder if there might be detailed drawings available. I've tried the Smithsonian Institute and the Indiana State Library, but with no luck.

I would appreciate any information.

Editor's note: The U.S. Patent Office is a good source for drawings. Also available (from Farm Collector Books): Avery Line by Bill Neal, which includes photos and descriptions of the 1923 line of Avery motor farming, threshing, hauling and road building machinery.
