Not a Cub, but interesting

Postby Super A » Fri Jun 18, 2004 8:42 pm

Guys,

This week, I cut my one acre wheat plot with my 1944 IH 52R combine. I pulled it with my '57 Farmall 450. I thought you might like to see....

This combine could be PTO equipped, or you could get a Y-69 Continental power unit, which mine has. THe Cub connection: First, with this engine, and assuming the ground was flat and not muddy, you could combine with a CUB! :D Second, this engine is >>about<< the same size as a C-60, it's a flathead but unlike the Cub it uses an H-4 IH mag, and it has NO oil filter!!! :shock: Finally, late in 52R production, it used the CUB engine instead of the Continental! I am >>>>HOPING<<<< to have my Cub-powered combine running next year!

Hope you like the pictures

I use to tie the Millers knot at 12 years old on my Dads 42R combine pulled from the power take of on a Super A. I remember cutting Milo which made very heavy sacks since we used 200lb. Fertlizer burlap bags. He traded that rusted out combine for a IH home freezer.

Jim,

I think I know what a miller's knot is, but I can't tie one....I tie the bags like tying your shoes. :oops:

How'd your Super A do with the 42R?? I have one of those also, a sacker. Been using it somewhat as a parts machine, ran it once with the 230 and it did ok. If my Super A was back together I would rather combine with it, as long as the ground isn't wet.

Dad did not want his sacks comming untied and spilling out so he taught me how to tie like a miller would. I guess a miller is the guy who runs the hammer mill making feed or flower.
Image
This is a close relative of the clove hitch and is used in tying sacks with heavy string or cord. Note that the first turn around the sack leads over the forefinger and the others pass under all fingers.
The Super A pulled it find but it was in like new condition. It was less than a few year old. O! that knot will not come untied!!!

Miller's Knot
Form an Overhand Loop around the end of a bag. Wrap the running end around the bag a second time and pull it through the first Overhand Loop as shown. Cinch the knot tight.




The Miller's Knot was named for its use by millers to tie off sacks of grain.Image

Jim,

I forgot to mention, this 52R came from Durham, bought it from the second owner. My Cub-52R came from Iowa. My first pull combine was the 42R and I bought it out of Raleigh, man I bought it from was the second owner and said he bought it from a man in Chatham County, NC.

I think my Super A and Cub-52R will make a neat pair, they would be close in age.

When I first scrooled down I saw the knot and said that's a clove hitch. Not quite...Very simular though. A clove hitch tied around a tube will pull out if you don't put a saftey in it. Learned that the hard way. :oops: Cost lots of $$$$$$. The Miller's knot looks like it wouldn't pull out as it appears self tightening.
