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.’
