Your machine might need a little adjustment here and there, and he can do that at the same time." He thought it over for a minute, and laid the part back on the counter. "Go ahead," he grinned. "I've got a couple of other things to take cafe of here in town anyway. The combine is standing in the field south of the house." He turned to go, and I mentioned, "If you're not at home by the time be puts on the part, I'll have him try the com* bine and look it over thoroughly and give you a report.
