Robinson Engine

We are using the Robinson Engine made at Richmond, Indiana, as our first presentation. It is a very scarce engine. We have only heard of one in existence. There are none at our reunions. This is one good reason for someone to build this engine

WE HAVE DECIDED TO GIVE A PAGE TO THE MODEL MAKERS. WE WILL PICTURE A DIFFERENT MAKE OF ENGINE EACH ISSUE AND GIVE THE DIMENSIONS. YOUR COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS WILL BE GREATLY WELCOMED ON THIS MATTER
