Default Waterloo Boy 2 1/2 HP at Aumann/Erdle Auction, NY

At today's (9/20/23) Aumann engine auction for Jim Erdle in Canandaigua, NY was a tagged Waterloo Boy 2 1/2 HP, s/n 35765. It was (fairly well) frozen up but otherwise in pretty good shape, with some orig paint (the dark blue/grey color), skids, Lunk mixer, crank guard, wet head, etc. The s/n dates it to 1911.

This engine has an almost unreadable vendor stencil on the hopper side, but it originally said:
WEAVER
HARDWARE CO
GENERAL AGTS
ROCHESTER NY

I couldn't stick around to see the sale, but if you bought this engine and want to know more about Weaver Hardware in Rochester, NY, please contact me... I have a twin to your new engine and some info on the store that sold it.

-Rick I.

In person, it was more rusty/stuck than I thought it would be from the online auction photos. Both valves, gov weights, ignitor trip finger, were all very stuck; plus lots of pitting- valve stems, flywheel faces, conn rod, base, etc. Piston was stuck, but at the best possible place, all the way back. One interesting feature it had was a cast iron gas tank shelf- it was only 1/3 there (broken off), but I didn't know that part existed until now.

I see the last "online" bid was $200 (online bidding closed at 8am today), but then I suppose they would just start there at the "live" auction of the engines at 11:30am. Plus, that may not have been the person's "max" bid. Not real sure how it works at that web site.

I found all the final bids on Aumanns auction site, hope I can walk you people though this as I'm not the best on a computer. On the Aumann website under current auctions click Vintage Power. Find Jim Erdle auction and click view bids on the Friday auction. Then click Engine Catalog, then click live bidding,(in blue rectangle box). The next page is mostly white in color, click the catalog tab, and 141 results should show. Wish I knew how to just put that page here , but I hope this helps.

Rick, I am the new owner of the 2 1/2 hp Waterloo engine,i sure would like more info on it. I do see that there was some faint writing on the side-not enough to make out. Thanks Dan Thomas.
