The Meriden Blacksmith Shop Gas Engine

Reader Contribution by Lauren Holt

According to the Meriden Antique Engine and Threshers Association website, this is a 8 hp 1-cylinder gas engine. It is installed to the side of the blacksmith shop, powering processes inside. I enjoyed watching it work – it’s the first gas engine I’ve seen and heard in person, rather than simply on a video like this one.
