LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


| November 2001


I enclose a picture of a hay press (baler) I purchased at an auction. The only markings on the machine are on the cast iron parts, which have 'BP' followed by a number cast into them.

The baler is driven from an outside source to the center pully. On each side, another belt then drives the large pully. I would like any information the readers might have about this machine.- Paul W. Works, 12158 N. Hoover Rd., Sedgwick, KS 67135.

WANTED: LETZ CORN GRINDER BROCHURE

I recently became the owner of a Letz Corn Grinder, Model No. 220. I would like to have information as to what colors it should be painted when it is restored. Also, I am interested in purchasing a brochure on this grinder. Thank you.- Eugene Sanders, Box 244, Hobart, OK 73651.

SOURCE OF HORSE DRAWN EQUIPMENT BOOKS

In the September 2001 'Between the Bookends,' you reviewed Lynn Miller's books on horse drawn equipment. I have several pieces of horse equipment to restore, but I need to see pictures of the originals to insure accuracy. Where can I purchase Miller's books? Also, I would like to hear from other Maine restorers as we seem to be out of the geographic loop a bit.- Thomas King,1284 Meadow Pond Rd., Islesboro, ME 04848, (207) 734-9715.

Editor's note: Several people have pointed out we failed to give contact information for those wishing to purchase Lynn Miller's books. They can be purchased from Small Farmer's Journal, Inc., 1-800-876-2893, or on-line at www.smallfarmersjournal.com. I highly recommend a subscription to Lynn's quarterly Small Farmer's Journal for those of you truly interested in farming with horses.

SAVED FROM THE TRASH

This is a picture of something my neighbor was going to throw away. There is a string-on pedal board that goes through two pulleys and wraps around the spindle. The spindle has three flutes that rotate back and forth while the pedals go up and down. The hopper on top is about 1 gallon in size. The pedals are about 3 feet apart. I sure would like to know what it is. Any ideas would be appreciated.- Vernon Betz,28196 Golden Gate Rd., Golden, CO 80403-8107, (303) 277-0090.
