The story of rescuing the 12 HP Domestic got more interesting when Jim’s company went back to the site and discovered the scrap pile and the engine gone! Some other scrappers had used the access road they cleared back in August to steal the pile. It took two days of looking and a lot of worrying, but the engine and the lime stone pulverizer it apparently once powered were found.
