rebuld a r52 combine

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.
I come here to share a project that is close to my heart to know the restoration of a combine harvester 52r.
it is a machine that is very little present on the French territory.
it's a very big job and I'm happy to share it with you.

OBoy!  that brings back memories . I ran them when I was a kid  55 years ago , that's a great combine for grass seed. Better than Aliis Chalmers I think ?

Hi everybody.
Thank you for your attention.
I am happy to know that you like this restoration.

I have the impression that you know this machine well, I would like to have some information.

I have no identification plate on the thresher and I do not know the year of manufacture.

can you give me this information? thank you in advance.
and do not worry, you will see the complete restoration of the machine in photo reporting until you return to a wheat field.
I apologize in advance for the mistakes of language but my months spent in the United States are far behind me and I'm struggling. (google translate help too.)

Not to rain on your parade, but that gives a whole new meaning to the term "Basket Case!" Where was it for the last half century, in a creekbed?

Seeing your photo's of the canvas work this morning took me back on a long ago far away trip down memory lane:
At the age of about 5, (60 years ago) my dad still had 2 McCormick Deering binders.  He had been selecting and growing his own wheat variety from a handful of seed, and the last time he used the binder was when he had enough seed to plant one field. 

I remember it so vividly this morning that he had the old binder taken out from the back of the barn, and he had all his tools out to check the binder over.  I so remember him replacing some of the slats on the canvas, and seeing that tin with the rivets, just flooded my memory of having been with him!

Thank you for stretching the canvas of my memory!

You're doing a marvellous job!

Merci beauchamp!

Hello everyone
Hello DEWETS
I am very happy that this restoration reminds you of a beautiful period of your life and that of your dad.
 Some people reading these pages about the restoration of this reaper tell me: you publish your photos
 to boast of your work, to prove that you are the best in recovery. What DEWETS has just said is the essential
 example of why I work so hard to put this machine back on the road, the memory of past times and the memory 
of the men who worked hard with this material, only and only for this reason.

A very big thank you to DEWETS for this story which pushes me with joy on the way of the workshop!

More excellent work on your part!🙂 I can assure you no one here thinks you are doing this to brag or boast... anyone who tries to bring back an old piece of history does it because it has special meaning to them and because they like that kind of work. I personally enjoy this website for that very reason... I love seeing all the work people put into their projects and I enjoy seeing the finished product. So keep up the great work!!!

Absolutely amazing work!  Pay no attention to those trying to put you down.  I commend you for your dedication to take on this project.  I certainly would never even attempt it.  From the first few pictures I would have just hauled it to scrap.  Keep up the awesome work I can't wait to see the end result.

This reminds me of the painter who takes a canvas and a handful of colors and creates a masterpiece.  You are taking some rusty metal that a salvage yard would reject and are creating a combine. Fortunately the pieces are there for a pattern even though you have to make a completely new piece.

Keep the photos coming. Now that you are taking pictures of the machine, someone needs to take a photo of you the first time that engine fires, or the first time the threshed grain spills into the tank. 

I envy and admire you and the rest of the people here on this forum who have the talent and dedication for restoration projects no matter the size or complexity..
