One of A Kind

| March/April 1976

After reading our January-February issue of the G.E.M. I thought of something that might be of real interest to our engine fans. I counted at least six engines of people who think that their engine is one of its kind. Let's see if they are one of its kind. I would be willing to handle it for you.

A Christensen engine manufactured by the Christensen Engineering Company, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Type FF, 6 HP, speed 350, 6' bore 9' stroke, 38' flywheels, 3' face, water hopper 24' deep, a side shaft engine.

I will start it out with this picture of a 6 H.P. Christensen side-shaft engine. I think it is one of a kind until proven different. All interesting engine fans send me two good clear black & white pictures from the working side of their engine.

I need their measurement R.P. M., H.P., ser. no., stroke and diameter of piston, diameter of flywheels or any other way to identify their engine. I'll send one of these pictures in for the magazine each month and keep one for my record for further reference.

In about six months I'll compile all engines in G.E.M. and then we will get a feedback from our engine specialist of who has one like it. In the future we will have a list of engines of one of its kind. Something to be proud of.
