This month’s engine is another return flue, but who made it
we can’t say. Judging by the small drivers and the overall size
of the machine, we’d guess this to be about a 12 HP unit. The
forward-mounted flywheel should be a good clue, and note the piping
from the steam dome. Those boys look ready to thresh, don’t
they?

John Spalding, 112 Carriage Place,
Hendersonville, TN 37035, supplied the photo, but no other
information. We do know that the thresher is a Case (the Case name
is just visible on the rear flank). As ever, the first person to
correctly guess its identity gets a free copy of Steam Engine Guide
by Prof. P.F. Rose.
