Mr. VanNatta says, 'I purchased it in 1951 and have had it reflued throughout by a L.V.R.R. boilermaker and inspector, who says it is safe for more steam than I ever carry. I used the steamer eighteen days this year threshing and filling silo. I carry 125 lbs. of steam but it will run the 16 inch Climax blower easily on 85 lbs.

Mr. Dunham tells this story: 'I slept under this machine on a pile of straw with a sleeping bag. Next morning before I crawled out an old fellow came over to see the separator and spied me under it (about sunrise) and remarked, 'Just like old times.' Then we had quite a chat.'
