My son was interested in old engines, so we overhauled and painted it. I sent to Freeport, Illnois for what information I could get. The engine was manufactured June 26, 1905, and shipped to C. W. Knapp & Son, a dealer at Lancaster, Wisconsin, on July 31, 1905. It was bought by a neighbor, who later moved on to homestead in Montana and gave the engine to my father. He used it on a wood lathe.

The Stover just sat until a couple of years ago. Now it draws attention at shows. We don't have the gas pump, so the gas runs from a tank by gravity.
