We Must Stick Together

| May/June 1956


NOTE OUR BOHEMIAN friend, Mr. William R. Benda of R. D. 2, Milan, Illinois, in his article of Jan.-Feb., 1956 issue of IRON-MEN ALBUM on page 8, is picking on my Swede friend Mr. Nelson of Hawley, Minnesota. Us Swedes in Minnesota must work together, as you will note, this cold winter we would freeze to death if we didn't.

Mr. Benda will you stand for correction, or the printer, or who ever made the mistake in both statements?

The Advance Company has built a 22hp. Simple Single side mounted engine. To prove it come to see 'Steam Engine Joe's 44 steam engine. Also have the catalog to prove it. Steam engine Joe will take off the cylinder cover so you can measure it.

About the year 1900 Advance built a 20hp. side mounted engine but in later years they built a 22hp. engine and there were lots of them in Minnesota.

On the second question Advance Rumley built 18 hp., 20hp., and 25hp., Single Simple rear mounted engines. To prove it Steam Engine Joe has a 20hp. Simple Single rear mounted Advance Rumley engine and the catalog to prove it. So please come down and see it. Steam Engine Joe will also take off the cylinder cover to prove it. But wait till May as we would freeze to death now.
