For this issue of the OFES news we have a photo of Dave Artmeier
of Rushville, Indiana, with his 20 HP Oil City Boiler Works half-
breed. It had pumped 18 to 20 oil wells in the field which it
worked. I travel to several shows each year with Dave, and he’s
a great fellow and good friend. I’m happy to have him as an
OFES member.

I decided I would include a spec-chart on the Jones/Acme engines
from 10 to 40 HP. This may be of interest to some of you. I’ve
also included an advertisement for these engines.

The S. M. Jones Company were the successors to The Acme Sucker
Rod Company, Toledo, Ohio, manufacturers of Acme and Rathburn gas
and gasoline engines, Acme Iron frame geared pumping powers, Acme
Iron sucker and surface rods, Jones and Hammond patent straight
line pumping jacks, drilling and finishing tools, and oil well
appliances.

As always, if you’d like a membership in the Oil Field
Engine Society, please send an S.A.S.E., or e-mail to
oilengine@voyager.net. Also, take time to visit the OFES website at
www.oilfieldengine.com.
