This thresher was manufactured by Arcade Manufacturing Company, Inc. in the 1930's. It is modeled after the McCormick-Deeing Thresher. It is made of cast iron and features nickel plated pulleys. In earlier models, the pulleys were part of the mold. The thresher has rotating wheels and a turning front axle. The hatch is movable and there is a hitch that can be connected to a tractor.
