This is a picture of a 1/3 size, 1923 Case
hay press that I built this past winter using a set of Mark
O’Hern’s excellent blueprints. I made the wheels from 12
inch pipe, the pulley is from a threshing machine, the flywheel
from an old post drill, the primary reduction gears from an
International combine engine, and the main gears from an old pump
jack. The rest of the machine is all new material. I started this
project in mid-October, finished about December 20, 1992, and
enjoyed every minute of it.
