Mr. Irvin L. Middleton, Box 32, Ruleton, Kansas. Coming and going.
One thing you could say about a Frick you could belt forward or back. This made them quite desirable for saw mill purposes. We just know a lot of our readers have not seen an engine belted backwards. In many places in Pennsylvania, where barn threshing prevailed it was difficult to get the smoke stack far enough away from the barn to clear the insurance policy and by belting backwards this helped considerably. This rig is owned by Mr. Byron Kitch of R. D. 2, Carlisle, Pa. It is a 16 Frick and a Case 28x50 separator.
