Care and Repair of Farm Implements: No. 5, Grain Separators

Description: "An enormous waste of grain and great loss of time result every year through the inefficient work of thrashing machines that are not properly repaired and put in thorough working condition before the beginning of the working season.... The separator should be overhauled at the close of the thrashing season or during the winter, needed parts ordered, and necessary repairs and adjustments made. This will tend to lengthen the life of the machine, and prevent loss of time and money from breakdowns at the busy season. This bulletin gives instructions for overhauling and adjusting separators which will reduce to the minimum the losses and delays from breakdowns during the operating season." -- p. 2
