It's not really a very good one as it is the bar/powerheads mounted to
a frame work for a chainsaw mill. Anyhow, I'm on dial up and ti will
take me some considerable time witht he processing. Probably this

And, I think, the same heads used on a shorter bar on an Alaskan mill.
Of interest is that every one of the few I found are all 'homebuilt.
I had thought that there were commercially produced ones. Guess I was

Because (yes I helped operate all parts of the system 'back when'...I
think we were the last farmers to use one in our area, would have been
The original 'mechanized' method of harvest was:
1. Cut the grain with a "binder" (horsedrawn implement that cut the
grain and tied it into sheives that were stacked to dry)
2. Haul it to a staionary "thresher" aka "separater" for threshing.
Then they put both machines together in what became "the combined
thresher' which almost instantly was shorting to "combine'.
Mine nit pick. They are called "combines' not "combiners'.
Further pedantry. Modern haying equipment began as usualy with horse
drawn mowers followed by rakes of various sorts to gather the hay into
windrows. That was 'combined' into a "swather' that cut, conditioned,
and layed a swath of hay ready for the 'baler' to compress it into
bales, either round or oblong after the hay dried a couple days. Then
somehow the term "swather" disappeared, at least in some araes and
"haybine" took over.
Yes, it is Saturday morning, I am retired and I am bored :)
LOL! Yes I know they are combines, I was just goofing with this and the
I just thought about something. In todays world, well actually in the
past 40+ years, when harvesting corn, was the same combine used to
harvest wheat and soy beans? Did they just change the front end of the
machine to match the job? Or was it two completely separate machines.
I can picture the front end giant fork like thing for corn, and the...
water wheel looking front end for soybeans and probably wheat.
Now there is a good question. Part one: Changing the head is a simple
few minute job. Just drive up, pull a few pins and hydraulic
connecters and back away to drop one head, reverse the procedure to
pick up the next "header". Never having been involved with corn, I
don't know if any internal changes are needed. I would expect that
the shoes and concave(s) would at least have to adjusted to allow for
the larger kernels.
I did the same but I was successful quite often. Fixed moms washing
machine at around age 12. The guy that sold her the part that I told
him was bad didn't want to believe I was 12. He told mom that they use
a special tool to compress a spring to get it together again, and if I
need it they will let me use it. She went back to tell them I laid it
down on its face, the top against a wall, and my back against the
opposite wall, and used my feet to compress the spring enough to get a
few bolts in it. It wasn't easy but I did it.
Hmm...i didn't find a picture on the links either but on dial-up one
doesnt' do a lot of digging.
One quick hit on "two engine chainsaw" - I'm on dial up and that is
enough of doing your work for you.
"It's a long Gwaii from here... - The AVSIM Forums I figured I'd be
flying some small, two-engine chainsaw back to camp... not this
beauty. I was almost teary eye'd as I stood there looking at her. ...
No, I didnt' go through that blog looking for the picture.
See Dadioh's post. There is no attempt to "synchronize", both
operators squeeze WOT (as any chainsaw is supposed to be operated) and
the output is the mid ground hp between the two.
Using your theory, all those multi engine dragsters are also
