| March/April 1963


A very much belated 'THANK YOU' for the paragraph you inserted in the Album from my renewal letter of Dec. 1957, that came through in the March-April 1958 issue, page 28, center column captioned TRACTION DRILLER.

One of your subscribers, Mr. Allen Blinn, of Kittanning, Pa. responded immediately. It took from then to spring of 1961 until I had a ' 'KEYSTONE' traction drilling machine STEAM POWERED on my premises. Thanks again.

I'm going to try and restore this machine so that I may operate it this coming season. When restored I'll send you photos of before and after.

From what I can ascertain steam powered drills are about as scarce as hen's teeth, very rare indeed. You might see it some time at some steam show. I attend Old Time Threshers and Saw Mill Operators Show north of Ft. Wayne, Ind. I live about 40 miles south of that show place.
