Ken Branson, who specializes in magneto and carburetor repair
for old engines, sent us a collection of old ads from a 1924 issue
of American Builder. Among those was this advertisement
for the Essick Plaster Mixer. Built by the Peerless Machinery Co.
of Cedar Falls, Iowa, Essick mixers were available in three
sizes.

Of interest to us is the Novo vertical single used to power this
machine. The Novo Engine Co., Lansing, Mich., made vertical singles
ranging from 1- to 10 HP. The exact size of the motor illustrated
is not known. Novo engines could be ordered from the factory to run
on low-grade fuels like kerosene. They would be started on gas and
then continue running on kerosene.
