 Rotor access module - Patent 4249543
In a crop harvesting and threshing machine of the type utilizing axial flow threshing and separation, there is provided an access unit to the threshing and separating apparatus which is removably insertable through the side of the harvesting and threshing machine into the rotor casing.
Conventional combines pass the crop material to be threshed between a rotary cylinder and a stationary concave in a direction that is normal to the axis of the rotating cylinder and parallel with the longitudinal axis of the combine frame.
Since the threshing concave and cylinder extends transversely across the width of a conventional combine, access at one particular relatively narrow point in either side or both sides of the combine permits servicing of the entire width of the concave and threshing cylinder.

Case or a "Buffalo Pits" separator, and was moved by five pairs of horses attached to a power staked to the ground, round which they travelled to the left, pulling at the ends of long levers or sweeps.
The power was planted some rods away from the machine, to which the force was carried by means of "tumbling rods," with "knuckle joints." The driver stood upon a platform above the huge, savage, cog-wheels round which the horses moved, and he was a great figure in the eyes of the boys.
There were always three men who went with the machine and were properly "the threshers." One acted as driver; the others were respectively "feeder" and "tender"; one of them fed the grain into the rolling cylinder, while the other, oil-can in hand, "tended" the separator.

 CARTER v. NICHOL
It was found that plaintiff's property was destroyed by a fire resulting from the operation of a threshing machine controlled and operated by the Department of Indian Affairs under the direction of defendant.
The defendant, being the person having charge of the management and operation of the machinery in question, was charged with the responsibility of seeing that the statutory conditions respecting its operation were com- plied with, and not having done so, and such failure having been the cause of the damage, he was liable therefor.
The authorising of threshing operations with this engine, without first seeing that it complied With the statutory requirements, was, in my opinion, personal negligence on the part of the de- fendant and a breach of the duty cast upon him by law, for which he is liable.
