There are very few engines in this part of country. Not too many
were used and the scrap drive for W. W. 2 took care of most of
those. There are several very large ones used in oil well work, but
I prefer the small size 1 HP to 8 HP until I learn more of the
operation of them.
In July of this year, I went to the Waukomis Steam Threshing Bee
and thoroughly enjoyed myself. While there, they had a few copies
of G. E. M. and I. M. A. I bought some of these and immediately
subscribed to G. E. M. which I will say is the best magazine that I
have had the opportunity to read. Keep up the good work!
Photography is my Number 1 hobby so I really appreciate the photos.
Thanking you in advance I remain 'Hooked on Hit & Miss

VICTOR J. LIPPI, 606 Cable Street, Van Wert, Ohio 45891 sends a
nice writing and is also seeking info.--'I was wondering if any
readers of the Gas Engine Magazine ever heard of or has a Spayd
Bros, one cylinder, two flywheels, Horsepower unknown, old-time
gasoline engine manufactured in my home town of Van Wert, Ohio
about 1915 to?
I have many, many old time gas engines of different horsepower
and makes, but none of these type and I'm interested in
information on them. It will be greatly appreciated.
I enjoy the G. E. M. tremendously and I read it several times
over, before laying it away for future information. I have wished
many times that it were a monthly issue.'
A new subscriber writes us: 'I received my first copy of the
Gas Engine Magazine last Saturday. I was surprised to see such a
large section of classified ads. I didn't have any idea there
is so much available.
I don't have an engine of my own, but have been helping my
cousin and uncle restore a 6 HP Challenge. The plate shows it to be
No. 3636. I know from a catalog that in 1929 the numbering was up
to 20,000 and from the Batavia Historical Society that the company
operated from 1867 to 1945. My uncle said the last time he can
remember it having run was 1923, but he can remember it being in
the family as far back as his memory goes. We would like to know if
anyone can tell us the year of this engine.'
Lots of questions to be answered this issue, so man your pens,
Men and write! That letter was from TOM CAMPBELL, Route 1, Box 115,
