Miniature Case traction engine and baler
« on: May 24, 2019, 09:05:44 am »
Several years into the Sherline miniature contest that used to be held in conjunction with the NAMES show I built this model. Sherline would post the parameters that needed to be met for the forthcoming show so I took the drawings for my full sized 1 inch Case and scaled them down to meet the requirement. I think the scale come out to be about 1:45. The baler was taken from the drawings I did for my 1 inch Case baler.
Mechanically they both operate with the traction engine being able to operate on air.

Precision watch making holds nothing on those superfine models!

Amazing work you do George ... just simply amazing!!!

Thanks for the great pictures George. 

Another world class build. 

I had seen the short video of the Baler on your YouTube Cannel (below).

I am sure we (as well as your 3.3k YouTube Channel Subscribers) would  really enjoy seeing a video of the Baler and the Traction Engine Running!
