VLR is please to present to you this 1906 publication - The Science of Successful Threshing Book.
The object of this book is to enable the owners and the operators of “Case” Threshing Machinery to become familiar with the construction and operation of their engines and machines. The aim has been to avoid theorizing and only such statements are made as have been demonstrated practical, by actual field experience. The fact is appreciated that it is impossible to lay down specific rules for operating threshing machinery, under the ever varying conditions of grain, straw and weather, but it is hoped that the suggestions herein embodied will enable a man of ordinary intelligence to operate his machine successfully, and even to become an expert himself.”
The perfect book for those of us lucky enough to own such vintage equipment, but better still, it is ideal for those arm chair steam engineers, to get a taste of what operating such machinery would be like. A very fun book to read.
