I would like to add a little history of the steam engine and some other farm implements.

The first engine with piston and also safety valve was invented by Denis Pop in of France in 1690.

The first steam road wagon by Oliver Evans of the U. S. in 1787.

The first mechanical grain threshing machine (separator to us) was made by Andrew Meikle of England in 1788.

The tubular locomotive boiler was made by Sequin of France in 1828.
