REFLECTIONS

A Brief Word


| April/May 2001


By the time this copy is in your hands, ye old Reflector and his group of 36 should be somewhere in Australia or New Zealand. The enthusiasm for vintage engines and tractors in those two countries is amazing. We hope to see some rare and unusual items along our way!

We're also quite happy to be completed with our Handbook of Antique Tools & Machinery to be published late this year by Krause Publications at Iola, Wisconsin. Here's a book we've wanted to do for a long time now, but it was a lot harder to assemble than we anticipated. Everything from adzes to wrenches will be included.

With hopes of retiring in another year or so, we also would like to revive the Power in the Past series we began thirty years ago. We have lots of material on Witte engines, and would like to compile a book specifically on this company. We also have some engines that are begging to be restored, and hope to get that done, along with plans of doing some model work. (We've had a couple casting sets on the shelf for perhaps twenty years now, so maybe it is time we get started).

Nearly every issue of GEM we see an engine that is entirely new to us ... back twenty years ago we were of the opinion that most all the engines had been bought up by collectors. We were certainly wrong about that!



We begin this issue with:

36/4/1 Help Needed John Dudley, R. 1, Box 576, Hood, VA 22723 had a 1915 Coldwell lawn mower, Model H, powered by a 1 HP engine. John would like to know who actually built the engine, the production period, etc.
