Marvin Rustad's sawmill and this 22-75 Advance Rumely traction engine, owned by John and Jack Raemisch of Dane, WI, make a good combination. Any time a traction engine is working on the belt, a crowd is sure to be found.

Here is another view of Marvin Rustad's saw mill, this time powered by a 1929 IHC model 22-36, restored by Don Paskey and operated by Don's son-in-law, Larry Nolan.

Each Saturday and Sunday afternoon of our show a parade is held, giving people the chance to see and hear old and unusual machinery in action. Leo Weibel and Sharon Hill, of Madison, WI, own this unique vehicle built in Wisconsin Dells by the now defunct Sandley Light Railway and Equipment Works. Riding with Leo is Robert Hasheider, of Sauk City, WI.

Many antique farm machinery shows began as Thresherees, where folks would gather to thresh grain like they did in the "good old days". Threshing was labor intensive work and farmers often helped their neighbors in exchange for receiving help when it was their turn to thresh. This lead to the entire process becoming not only an economic necessity, but a major social event. We hope you will take time to stop and check out our threshing crews in action.

James Johnson, of Dane, WI, was the former user of this beautifully preserved threshing machine built for International Harvester Co. by the Buffalo-Pitts Co. That is George Hoffman up on the bundle wagon. Mark Manke is standing atop the feeder, Donald and Fred Manke are "helping" Mark, and Neil Manke is giving information to Sharon Hill. The Manke Crew put on a good display and learned how to thresh by watching home movies of their Great Grandfather running a 1915 Advance Rumely thresher.

Supplying the power for the Manke Crew is Jim McManus, of Friendship, WI, shown here with his 1917 60 hp Case steam traction engine. This engine was owned by Jim's grandfather, Earl Anderson, for a number of years and Jim is happy to have it now.
