Here are a few pictures of a hay bailer that was scratch built by a friend from down under by name of Harold Manwaring. This is some of the most meticulous work I have seen. The model actually bails hay. He can power the bailer from a model steam tractor running on air.

Tell Harold Manwaring he is a genius. That is just brilliant. Like others have said you must put it on youtube so we can see it in action.

I love this beautiful piece. It’s full of creative design and masterful craftsmanship and belongs in a well attended museum. Of course the reason that this is a masterpiece is that it is made out of wood and actually works. It is not meant to be used but to be admired as a thing of beauty. Who would not love to have this beauty in a corner of their study? Would it not be an outstanding piece of eye candy and a wealthy man’s conversation piece? It’s a toy that is fit for a king.
