The earliest "Jacobson Machine Manufacturing Co.", ad I've seen is from the Warren Evening Democrat and is dated May 25, 1900. There is no indication that they made engines at that time.

In another book I found a mention that Jacobson Machine Mfg. was "organized" in 1901.

I still have not found an ad prior to 1906 indicating that they (Jacobson) made engines.

I am looking for someone having access to a copy of "Gas Power" dated May 1909 who would be willing to scan and send me the color ad depicting a Jacobson "Mascot" engine.

Thank you,
Denis Rouleau

Hi Don, no, I was looking specifically for the color ad in the May 1909 Gas Power magazine or any other issue with the same ad.
Thanks!

Thanks Steve for finding time to send in the data and pictures of your engine for the Jacobson registry. I've entered it to the registry which you can find here: http://buzzcoil.brinkster.net/moody/000index.html along with all the other pages I've put together for the Jacobson engines and some of its history.

I also want to thank Don Worley for much of the stuff on Jacobson he is sharing with me and with all of you at the same time.

I want to extent an invitation to all Jacobson engines owners to send me info and pictures which I will promptly add to the Jacobson registry. Included in this registry are the Ward, Bull's Eye, Unito, Maynard and all the other engines built by Jacobson in Warren and in Titusville.

Again, thank you!
Denis Rouleau

I have to show you the oldest (for now at least) and the biggest Jacobson engine (25hp).

Hi Denis,
I have some Gas Power, but do not have that one.

Try Jeff Wahl. He has an extensive collection of Gas Power and is posting adds from them at:

Thanks Len for the suggestion. I've been closely following Jeff's thread about vintage ads from Gas Power but I don't think I've seen anything about Jacobson.

Jacobson engine ads are few and far between, contrary to some other engine builders that advertised everywhere and regularly, Galloway to name one.

Len, if you have anything/something for Jacobson in the Gas Power you have I would sure like to see it. This invitation is to everyone with any vintage magazine with Jacobson ads in them.

Sales literature is also great to tell what was available from a certain engine manufacturer but they often is no mention of the year the literature was issue. Ads in magazines are great as you know when it was issues right down to the month/day/year.

So don't be shy and please email me anything you see pertaining to Jacobson Machine Mfg., Warren Pa. I will create web pages with these ads and share the result with everyone.

My email is: buzzcoil2@videotron.ca

Thanks!
Denis Rouleau
