Default Scale "model" Grain and Feed Elevator / Bagger

With fair and our club show days away, rather than get stuff ready (as I should have) I get a wild hair and spend the day building a new exhibit piece.... a grain and feed elevator/bagger! Thanks to Lauren's scrap grain thrashers, by robbing parts from three different machines, the minions and I made it happen, after talking about doing it for years!

I decided to keep it simple and just half size it from what I pulled off the trasher. So. start off, I cut the auger box and auger in half:

Default Re: Scale "model" grain and feed elevator/bagger

I then built a simple cart to support it and moved on to the elevator. Once again, I halved it. The tubes were 8', so I cut it down to 4' and omitted the top tube and used a idler sprocket to enable the public to view how it functions.






and to control flow, I added a canavas shoot that I cut from a painters drop cloth and sewed up. Eventually I'd like to add a dual shoot bagger with a selector gate (which I have) But that'll take more time as it is from a different machine than the rest of the parts and so it doesn't match up (most parts came from Case thrashers, its from a Rumley or Altman-Taylor).

and of course it needed a test... we found that packing peanuts worked perfectly for a test "grain"

Thanks Wayne.

Decided we should start getting things ready for the show, first up was checking the fit with the mill... I love it when a plan comes together!
