Above is a photo from Olie Olson of 23 Milltown Road, New
Fairfield, Connecticut 06810. He tells us it is a ‘Latest
Improved Buckeye #25’, manufactured in 1869 by Thomas and Mast
of Springfield, Ohio. ‘The cider press, purchased from Ed Dies,
was complete including all metal parts. However, I have completely
replaced all wood using the former remnants as patterns. I believe
Ed found it in a barn in Western Pennsylvania. I completed the
restoration in time for the fall ’83 cider pressing season
turning out 30 gallons.

The Oilpulls above were photographed at LaGrange, Indiana by
William C. Kuhl of 464 S. 5th St., Sebewaing, Michigan 48759. Owner
is Merle B. Haldeman of Bristol, Indiana 46507. In the photo below
are three Ideal engines onwed by William Kuhl and shown at the
Harbor Beach Gas Engine and Tractor Show.

Lloyd McGowen of Route 4, Box 642, Easley, South Carolina 29640
owns this 1943 ‘D’ John Deere, SN 155317. He’s now
working on a 1936 ‘B’ and has a 1945 ‘G’ awaiting
restoration.

The night scene above is at the antique tractor pull held each
year during the Stephenson County Antique Engine Club Show at
Freeport, Illinois. J. D. Miller, of Geneseo, Illinois, has just
finished his pull with his 1931 Rumely 6A tractor.

Bob Henderson, Box 105, Sandy Creek, New York 13145 sent us this
photo at left to stress the importance of a safety rope at engine
shows. ‘This engine broke the 4 bolts holding the water hopper,
head, etc. while running and blew off the head and hopper over a 4
HP Stover, smashing into a portable buzz rig some 20 feet away,
throwing hot water all over. Fortunately no one got hurt. This was
at the Oswego County Fair in Sandy Creek, New York. You can see the
water hopper on the ground (at left) where it landed below the
saw.’

4th annual Spring Old Gas Engine and Tractor Auction was held
last April in Fort Atkinson, Iowa with Bob Humpal in charge. Here
auctioneer Dick Hollerud is lot numbering a clean John Deere
tractor on steel. In the background are the different tractors that
were sold.
