Farm Collector

Letters to the Editor

I have been a subscriber for a number of years now, and I
eagerly look in each issue for a photo or mention of a piece of
equipment we had on the farm when I was a boy in the 1930s and
1940s. I’m looking for a corn binder that tied the bundle with the
stalks lying down. The brand was either McCormick or Deering, but
not McCormick-Deering.

My dad cut the tongue off and pulled it with the tractor. I rode
on it many miles. He had two of them and used one for parts.

I’ve been to old equipment shows and have seen many old corn
binders but they all tied the bundle with the stalks in an upright
position. Knowing there is still one out there would bring joy to
my old memories.
