INGECO/Worthington, Venn-Severin and Drag Saw/Log Saw Info Wanted

drag saw

I am a historian for INGECO/Worthington and Venn-Severin engines, and all drag saw/log saws brands. I have had a couple of articles in GEM about INGECOs and drag saw/log saws, and as I learn more, I will submit more. I’d like to write an article or two about Venn-Severin engines, as well as write more about drag saws as I learn more to help preserve the history. Reed Benton was previously the acting historian for INGECO engines, but due to age and health he passed along his information for me to work on at the beginning of this year.


There are currently 190 engines on the INGECO/Worthington registry, 20 engines on the Venn-Severin registry and 132 saws on the drag saws/log saws registry. There’s no website currently, but I am compiling information and organizing it, and I will post the information on a devoted website  and, eventually. Collector names and contact information will be held strictly confidentially and will not be publicized. Here is the information I am looking for:
