One of only two known extant, this very unusual inverted-vertical engine was purchased new by E.B. Sage to power a small shop for his farm and oil lease. The engine – through use of a line shaft – operated a pipe threader, grinding wheel and forge blower. The shop was located a few miles east of Bradford, Pennsylvania.
The engine was brought to the Coolspring Power Museum in 1993.
