JD had been working on rotaries on and off since the 50s.  In fact their prototypes were further ahead then what IH had at the time in the 60s.  JD even called theirs "Axial Flow".  It was a business decision to not introduce a rotary when they could have.  https://www.farmshow.com/a_article.php?aid=2466

Ya, so? Who perfected it?

d**re brought a rotary out finally after 40 some years later only because they were losing market share big time, no different than copying the Quadtrac's, this is an OLD story....

I always thought that I grew up with the original "Axial-Flow" in the 1970s working around my Dad's Minneapolis-Moline corn shellers. When did they come out-sometime right after WWII? I remember joking with him that that was where IH got the idea for their rotary combines. IIRC, John Deere offered a corn sheller about the same time; was it a rotary design, too? I never seen a Deere model up close.
