Regular contributor David Babcock writes in again, sending vintage photos showing a large Fairbanks-Morse installed in a workshop and a screen-cooled McVicker engine powering a buzz saw on a cold winter day. David writes: “The large engine is probably a 32hp Fairbanks N, belted to a line shaft powering a shop in an unknown location. The photo is dated January 1910. The other photo shows men posing somewhere in Minnesota beside a large McVicker engine and buzz saw. Maybe circa 1915?”
