A Collection That's Otto This World

Jim and Keven Withers have one of the finest collections of big engines you’ll ever find

Blaisdell Machinery Co. developed a small 5 x 6 engine compressor to start the larger Blaisdells with compressed air. The serial number on this one is 1495, and it was used to start the 65 HP Blaisdell using 900 pounds of air pressure.
