Default Belt driven machinery

would anyone know of any antique belt driven machinery that might be available for purchase....I would like to find something to pull with a half scale case steam engine...such as

small threshing machine (barn thresher is fine...I could put it on wheels)
sawmill or maybe even a planer
corn sheller
shingle mill
siding mill
any other piece that could be pulled with approx 15 hp

ready to run is fine...but I am willing to tackle a project as well....thank you

A corn sheller would be your easiest/cheapest bet or perhaps even a corn mill like one of the small table-top hand cranked models modified for belt pulley use.

I am thinking of setting up generator and a power panel with volt and amp meters and a bunch of switches so that people turn loads on and off and see changes in the amperage and hear the load change on the steam engine. The loads would be lights, fans, water pumps, etc..

That planner in pics #4 and #5 would look real good in my shop.
