High and dry - 90 HP Atlas Diesel engine June 1977 unloading it at Poverty Flats-the big question now -will we ever get it running??

This month’s cover feature is a sharp looking Handy Andy
Galloway, owned by Ellsworth Olson of Westby, Wisconsin. The photo
was taken while the engine was on display at the 1976 Hesper-Mabel
Steam Engine Days Show at Mabel, Minnesota.

Pictured is my Father’s threshing rig that we used for
several years. It was an 18-36 HI’ Anil man & Taylor
tractor. The separator was a 28′ X 48′ Advance Rumely. This
photo was taken in July 1934.

From left-Charles L. Studebaker, owner of the rig; Walter
Stockslager, D. Rosenhagen, L. Hutton, workman-unknown, L. Kessler,
Calvin Huffman at whose place we were threshing near Lewisburg,
Ohio and myself, Darrell Studebaker, age 11, at the blower; the two
on the grain wagon-unknown.

There were 56 large loads of straw put on this stack.

At the ‘MID-AMERICAN SHOW’ at Tipton, Indiana in 1975,
Bruce Atkinson of P.O. Box #65 Monrovia Indiana 46157 showed this
log-saw. It has a 2-cycle engine which is mounted on two stringers
supported there-to with brackets on the under side of the
stringers. The large driven gear and the small pinion gear are both
cast-iron. Only the letters AMI found on the machine. When I asked
the question, ‘What is it.’ He replied, ‘I wish I could
tell you.’ – Now can any of you readers tell him the
answer?

Pictured above is my daughter, Janet Lynn, age 5, who is a real
‘ole popper’ nut- and myself. That is our 6 HP Famous
International bought new in 1914. Engine is belted to Sears Roebuck
saw mandrel. Note steel wheel wagon and wood pile behind saw.

The results of several hundred hours of work restoring this
1926, 12-20 H.P. Case crossmount owners Jim Suter, Harrisburg,
Virginia; Gary Line weaver, Bridgewater, Virginia. Bridgewater
