Enclosed are some photos of what an oil field engine can be used for in the winter in Ohio. Our summer threshing group likes to have a get-together in mid-winter. A couple of the members decided to have a wood buzzing day and decided to use my 25 HP Reid to run the buzz saw, which worked out really well. We also had an Ottawa log saw owned by Paul Laubenthal and a one-man cross-cut owned by John Androvich. It was cold and snowy, but everyone enjoyed the day.
