| July/August 1970


Just finished threshing fifteen acres of wheat July 1968. Charlie Barker and Lawrence Porter standing on back of Russell engine, 20 hp. No. 16690 and Russell 33-54 Separator of year 1920.

A three inch scale model Case steam tractor I built as time and money permitted between the years 1960 to 1968.

I bought most of the castings from C. E. Jack Kauer of Wichita, Kansas. As Jack is an expert machinist, he did much of the important machining for me and was helpful in every way in building this model. I got some of the castings that Mr. Kauer did not have, from Phillip's Model Shop, presently Alexander Enterprises of Kansas City. I also bought some boiler fittings from Charles Cole of Ventura, California. These model firms all carry a good product and are fair in every way.

John Pino and Carl Campbell making shingles at the Old Stumpers Jumpers Show at Mansfield, Pennsylvania, at John Pino's farm in October 1969.

Making apple butter with steam. The women are: Mrs. Kenneth Butler of Riverton, Connecticut, Mrs. Costly of South Fork, Pa., Mrs. John Pino, Covington, Pa., and Mrs. Carl Campbell of Mansfield. The others are watching the process.

Pictured is a stump pulling machine, probably before the turn of the century. It was taken near Stanton, Michigan. They had to clear the land and make it fit to plant the wheat to harvest to thresh.
