Something Different

I sense a feeling among our readers that they would like some stories other than stories about threshers, tractors, steam engines, and gas engines.

How many readers know that the same company that built Sandwich gas engines also built grain elevators to use on farms?

About 1942, 1 needed a grain elevator because of my back problems. No new elevators were available due to restrictions, but a friend told me of one in a farm windbreak of trees that could be bought. It turned out to be an all wood Sandwich elevator, 40 feet long, with steel wheels and steel axles.

I looked it over and the owner offered to take $25.00 for the whole mess. Take it all, or nothing.

I dismantled it the best I could, keeping everything for patterns. The horse power was not known and the wagon hoist was missing.
