  • Mr. Richard Rornig
    Mr. Richard Rornig, Rothsay, Minnesota, and his Case. We have no further information and we are not sure we have his name spelled right, however, it is a nice clear picture and we like that. Elmer.

  • Threshing Rig
    My grandfather's Huber Threshing Rig moving on Rye Beach Road west of Huron, Ohio, in 1904. Rig was owned by John F. Rhinemiller who was accidentally killed January 10, 1912, at a railroad crossing near his home. The outfit was operated by two sons, Arthu
  • Threshing machine
    This is Jiggs with his recently acquired Baker, 21-75. He's very proud of it as he tells us he has been a steam enthusiast all his life -- he'll be 50 this year. His father operated a saw-mill, shingle mill and threshing machine.
  • Aultman Taylor engine
    Aultman Taylor engine belonging to Harry Woodmansy of Dowling, Michigan. This was taken at the Huntertown, Indiana, meet 1957. I was in the height of my glory piloting this engine. Harry's pipe made more smoke than the engine if you did not put more than
  • Table lamps
    Let your light shine . . . and Tom Me Bath could throw forth quite a bit of light with all these fine table lamps made from whistles, pop-valves and lubricators. He tells us bronze bells make novel shades but are hard to find, We think the lamps are very

Engine was a 16 hp and Separator was 28 x 54 Huber with the first mechanical Feeder Granddad had. The company came to our place and installed the feeder for him in the fall and after New Years they went west of Huron and threshed a job to try out the new feeder, going some 5 or 6 miles.

Note feeder table folded up over the top. Old Ben (off horse on water wagon) would kick it out of shape every time he was hooked to the Separator. After Old Ben passed on it was folded under again as it was quite a strain to put it over the top. Granddad and three sons, Art (my father), Fred and George operated threshing machinery for 55 years until 1915 when Dad sold the Rig and bought a 1916 Olds which he drove 11 years. When gas went up to 11 cents a gallon, Dad laid the car up as it cost too much to run.

I have a written testimonial from Granddad (John F. Rhinemiller) to Huber Mfg. Co., Marion, Ohio, as to the merits of their machines. This was cut out of a Huber Catalogue but do not know the year. If anyone has a Huber Catalogue with this in it, I would appreciate hearing from them so I could buy a catalogue or a copy of one.
