What kind o binder is this and is she ground drive? We had a six foot cut McCormack that we converted to pto drive. Whur ane must have been about the last o the grund drives as it was a binder bought by the Ritch family fae the Head in Hoy. Their binder was blown away in the sea by the huricane in 1953, so whur ane was bought to replace that ane- and that is why I think it must have been among the last o the grund drives before they were fitted with PTOs

It's a McCormick Deering Binder. New in 1938 at Cockmurra in Holm where it was converted from ground drive to pto. If anyone knows where I can get the parts to convert it back to ground drive get in touch. I'm also looking for good sheets for it.
