Smile McCormick Daisy No.3 mower late 1800s

Gooday from Down Under,
We have a wreck of a Daisy No.3 mower by McCormick. Have not been able to find GOOD photographs of the complete unit.
This is a horse-drawn machine made up to the early 1900s at least.
Does anyone know of a working machine? Or even an instruction book or parts book? There are one or two of this type in Aust. but nothing exactly like the one we have here at our local museum Clayton Farm Heritage Museum. Anything? Anyone?

This is not a mower- it's a Reaper. You can get copies of operator's manuals, parts mauals, etc. from the Wisconsin Historical Society. They also have photographs, posters, etc.

Thanks Jeff,
Will look forward to that. I may have to get some further photos later if that would be OK.
RAIN !! Whats that. Many parts of Aust are in the grip of a drought at present. We locally have had only a bit over 1" of rain this year. And we are in a good area!! In the south east of South Australia, next to the border with Victoria.
