Can someone enlighten me on this engine and saw rig?
The engine carries several tags, summarized as: Challenge Co.,
Batavia Ill., M150, 5 HP, serial no. 28405; J. Comer Jones Power
& Pump Co., Boston, Mass., and Wico magneto.
A spark plug is in place. The engine sits on a four-iron-wheeled
frame with towbar/hitch and a 24-inch (approximate) diameter saw
with rocker table. An auxiliary flywheel is center-mounted on the
assembly frame and belt-driven from the saw shaft.
Any information on this engine and its rig or tips on
information sources would be greatly appreciated. Chuck Lowman, 311
