For this issue of the OFES news we have a photo of Dave Artmeier of Rushville, Indiana, with his 20 HP Oil City Boiler Works half- breed. It had pumped 18 to 20 oil wells in the field which it worked. I travel to several shows each year with Dave, and he's a great fellow and good friend. I'm happy to have him as an OFES member.

I decided I would include a spec-chart on the Jones/Acme engines from 10 to 40 HP. This may be of interest to some of you. I've also included an advertisement for these engines.

The S. M. Jones Company were the successors to The Acme Sucker Rod Company, Toledo, Ohio, manufacturers of Acme and Rathburn gas and gasoline engines, Acme Iron frame geared pumping powers, Acme Iron sucker and surface rods, Jones and Hammond patent straight line pumping jacks, drilling and finishing tools, and oil well appliances.

As always, if you'd like a membership in the Oil Field Engine Society, please send an S.A.S.E., or e-mail to oilengine@voyager.net. Also, take time to visit the OFES website at www.oilfieldengine.com.
