The South Jersey Gas Engine Show was held September 26-27, 1987
at Joe Dunn’s, State Highway 49, two miles east of Quinton, NJ.
Weather was fine and a steady crowd came to see the displays. Gas
engines turned many things, such as cornshellers, ice cream makers,
grinding wheels, and so on. A two-man chain saw with a 36′ bar
was demonstrated. Other displays were many steam engines,
automobiles, and outboard motors. A fine food tent topped off the
day.  

BICKNELL GAS ENGINE INFORMATION NEEDED

I am doing research work for a story on the Bicknell gas engines
made in Janesville, Wisconsin, for an upcoming issue of GEM,
hopefully by spring. I am looking for collectors who own these
engines also (I have a ? HP air-cooled). If you can give me any
information on these engines, the company, or the owners of the
company I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if you own one of
these engines please send a picture of it, as I am trying to
catalogue all the engines left and their owners. Anyone who can
help with this project will get a copy of my research when
done.

As far as I know, only three styles of the Bicknell were made:
the ? HP air-cooled; the two cylinder, two cycle; the one cylinder
Perfection engine (see C.H. Wendel’s book, Gas Engines since
1872, under Bicknell Mfg. and Supply Company). Please call or
write:
