My ignorance is blatant! My combine has a ribbed material which turns with the chain-driven mechanism, not what I think of as canvas. At the front of that is the yellow rotating bars which come down onto the wheat plant and feed it into the combine. Are those rotating yellow bars the auger? Thanks for your help, Gary and Stan. It is very appreciated! Let's face it--I wouldn't have made much of a farmer!!

Not ignorance at all! I just have an advantage because I'm older than dirt.

The cloth ribbed material represents the canvas that carried the cut grain upward to the threshing cylinder which separates the grain from the straw. This was the case on the 12-A and the 25 combine that replaced the 12-A.

The yellow rotating bars do indeed bend the wheat/oats/soybeans/clover seed, and, in one case some 55 years ago, a small patch of popcorn, down to enable cutting the grain. This is called the reel.

The "30" combine had an auger which moved the cut grain to the center of the platform and then into the threshing cylinder.

I'll send you a couple of pictures by separate e-mail which will clearly show the difference. Please send me an e-mail at so I can send you those pictures.

That ribbed material is what would be a canvas on a full size working combine. So you have a 12A.

The reel (rotating bars) is what runs over the top of the sickle not an auger.

Both the 12A and the 30 will have a reel.
