MY FIRST EXPERIENCE


| May/June 1958



4560 Lockhourne Rd., Columbus, Ohio

My first experience in threshing was with steam but gasoline soon took over. The first commercial rig was a Cletrac. One of the first ones built.

This last spring I bought a 1914 50 hp. Case that stood in Urbana, Ohio for a number of years. The children had stripped it of most of the small things. I worked on a church building all summer and there has not been much done on the Case. Hope to get to it soon. My work is with the PRR as an engineer in the Columbus yards on steam and diesel. I am 57 years young.
