Unhappy Re: Horse power sweeps

Can't say For Sure yet, but rumor has it the Stephenson County Antique Engine Club MIGHT Be selling the 12 Horse Sweep Powered CASE Threshing Machine.

See the two videos of it in Post # 2


We don't have the horses to run it anymore and even if we did get horses we don't have enough WORKING Club Members anymore that want to run it which is a Major Shame as it has been a Key Feature of our show for 40 Years.

I'll post updates once the board decides for sure what they're doing, but it sounds like a couple people have already asked about buying it but i don't know how serious they are or if they are making any $erious offer$ or if they're thinking we're gonna give it to them (which ain't gonna happen)

Here's a single horse running a hay press at recent Cumberland(Maine) Fair. That's Vern with the pitch fork & Jim providing the power. Don't know the guy in orange shirt.

I have a Dain Double Geared Burr Mill which Dad used. I set it up and ran it at both Stephenson Co and at Hedtke's show here in Northern Illinois. Setup was a lot of work with stakes and then we had to find a horse or a team of small mules to run it and to find corn to grind. So it just sits now.

I'll eventually put a film camera picture of it on.

We have a One-Horse-Sweep powered baler at Freeport too, but like the 12 Horse Thresher we no longer have the horses (or people) to run it.

The Thresher Had Been powered by a large Gas Engine early on in its life and then a tractor later on before Robert Lamm bought it and we put it back to Horse Power so we Could go that route again but still need PEOPLE. . . So.... at this time it's still up in the air as to what will happen with it.

For the time being it is all in storage until next year while the Club decides what to do.
