Mr. Don Watters, Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, says this engine was found in an old mill near here. The boiler was once used to steam wheat but out of use for some 50 years. The cylinder is 6 inches from port to port, 2 ' in diameter, 4' stroke. The pop set for 65 lbs. He uses it to shred fodder, shell corn, turn grindstone and a 30' wood' saw. No name on it. Hope someone can tell me who made it. Think it is a Geiser and about 4 hp. Don made the trailer. He also says that he has a French and Indian War cannon, Egyptian mummey, flint lock rifle and muzzle loading shot guns, rifles and revolvers, dog churn & many other antiques
