  1. This is for Rick Borland:

    I have a Eli Baling Press that I am going to try to rebuild. My Grandfather bought it new, and it has been setting outside for many years. Any help you could provide me with mine would be appreciated. I have a 8mm movie of it running during the 40’s. It is a little different than the one you have. How do you find the model Number? If I make contact, I will email pictures of it to you.
    Thanks in advance.
