Childhood memories of threshing machines powered by steam traction engines lead one Kansan to build this quarter-scale model.
Collecting, preserving, and operating antique gas- and steam-powered engines is a popular hobby. One of these hobbyists was native Kansan Ernest Hedlund, who built this quarter-scale model of a Gaar-Scott steam engine after working as a mechanic all his life. Hedlund embarked on a career repairing farm machinery after leaving his family's Clay County farm. After deciding to construct this model of the Gaar-Scott engine that was so important to him in his youth, Hedlund tried to locate patterns but was forced to construct the model mostly from memory. We invite you to send further details about existing articles or submit articles on other topics in Kansas history. Our online collections contain more than 200,000 images of photos, documents, and artifacts, which grows daily.

Born in 1906, Hedlund worked as a water boy for threshing crews until old enough to repair and operate a full-sized Gaar-Scott steam traction engine. Years of mechanical experience came in handy when he eventually took a job as field service representative for Ford Motor Company's tractor division in Kansas City.

This makes it a great project for any hobbyist or the more enthusiastic machinist with a small lathe. Because of the twin cylinders, this engine has the unique ability to always start by just turning on the steam. There are a lot of sharp edges and burrs to clean off, but all part of making the builder appreciate the project more.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. In 1970 Hedlund retired to Morganville, near his home town of Clay Center, to operate a machine shop.
Hedlund proudly claimed only two parts had to be obtained commercially--the cylinder chest and the name plate (pictured at left) on the front of the engine. It took him about four years to finish the model, which could operate by burning either coal or wood.
