Not much help in the present time, but there used to be Balerman selling plans in 3" and 6" scale for a Case type baler. Maybe someone has a set gathering dust in the attic.
Try asking also on the Smokstak forum

You have the wrong name. A trashing machine is my old headmaster and my maths master- who trashed the sh1t out of me. ;);)
I ended up richer and better qualified than either of them.

or gin gangWhat you should be looking for is 'Threshing'. Laughingly, I live in a ''gin gam'

Hi

If you look for a baler the person who originally designed the 1/3 and 1/6 is located here:

Case Hay Press. 5440 Reynolds Rd., Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235, Ph: 920-743-7142.
Website: Mini Haypress 1/3 & 1/6 scale case hay press plans or completed model.


The above is from the modelers list at : Scale Model Engine Suppliers List

George Britnell who is on the site has a nice set of 1" scale plans for a Case Baler, which are real detailed. You could PM him.

I do not know of any Separator Plans. There used to be some at site out in California that were originally from Canada and I hae no idea where they are now. You might want to ask the separator question on the Smokstak site:

Guess I did not ask, how big is the traction engine? Most model separators are made by going out and measuring the full size on and scaling it down. If you have a local group that has a Separator on site yo might make arrangements to make plans of it.

Bob

PS go over to the smokstack model site and search on thresher, only on that site you will get some information.

PPS Go to this site New West Live Steam and contact him asking about the plans, he used to have them but does not advertise them for sale. I think he bought the Canadian company.

I build this haypress to the Balerman plans 10 years ago and have shown it every year since at regional shows. It is a pleasure to show and explain to visitors about the old days. Here is a video I posted on YouTube 10 years ago to give you an idea of the scale,
. Enjoy, it was a great project and has given me many hours of enjoyment.

I want to make sure I understand the size, do you mean 3/4" to the foot or 3/4 full size?

If it is 3/4" to the foot, then Georges baler (about 16" long) would look nice, here is a photo of it, and a photo of the water wagon he guilt, these are 1" to the foot.

Well, this has gotten off the subject a little, but interesting. I got the plans from George for his hay press a few years ago and scaled them up to 3" from 1". I didn't have any trouble with that and the model came out just fine. I cut all the gears from blanks from Gary Martin. I've had the model up at Golden Gate Live Steamers a couple times and the first time we ran it from a belt driven by Charlie Reiter's 3" Case TE until the scarf joint on the belt let loose.....

As far as Threshing machines are concerned, I wanted to build one as well. I had plans for the Ransome's in 2" scale but lost them in a computer failure. Now all I have are plans from Model Engineer for the Garrett Thresher in 3" scale. I'm too old to start on this project now as it is very complicated. I wonder how one of the English Threshers would look with a Case TE? Would look OK with my Burrell, though.

Hi All. I stumbled across a FREE set of Case Traction Engine! It's at replicaplans.com. Scroll past all the gun stuff to the bottom of the page. There listed is "Live Steam Traction Engine Plans." You need a current Adobe PDF reader. It then leads you to john-tom.com for the download. I guess you could go right to john-tom. I am just telling you how I got there. You may find something else you may like on the trip! I would like the more advanced members to comment on the quality of the plans before I give this a try. TKS Ken
