Playing with the throttle on a very old generator, getting ready for an annual antique show demonstration..
Kron guard:Apparently it's used to be/is a power generator. edit: also says so in the description.
Most likely used for some sort of old factories or sth,i know that a wwii bunker that is not far from my location..
Com: Parrhuss :Even though these machines are old enough to be my grandfather,
I do get a certain sense of satisfaction watching these things run. I don't know why, I just do..
Com: Ernest zoller : Wow! I used to work at the Delaval Enterprise Division in Oakland,
CA Plant in my 20's.
This engine you got is very small one. My job was to cut raw material as it came in, work in the debur department.
and sandblast cam lobes. What a dirty job. I loved every minute of it.
You have never seen nothing like a 35' crankshaft turning on a lathe until you have seen it in real life.
How about a cast iron piston, 24" in diameter as tall as me. I am 5'6". We built them big.
I am 67 years of age now, and proud of it.
