I came across the research of Elmore Public Library Archival dept for first time. Amazing! Some interesting newspaper clip article about 16hp steam traction engine explosion on June 7Th 1901 at 2 pm.

Here are some actual photos and paper clip found between Elmore and Toledo library. Banting machine and Supply Company of Toledo 114 Superior St. incorporated January 1901 as an agency of Buffalo Pitts machinery line and supplies. I have attached a 1951 Elmore Tribune article and the rest of disaster photos. The last photo link site was taken pre 1901(looks like a 16 hp Russell traction?) at Miller farm between Elmore and Toledo. It could be a second hand engine from Miller. I do find Miller's new Buffalo Pitts. Now I lost it somewhere. Who knows?
Fourteen years later in Toledo. The Banting Mfg Co. was incorporated January 18 1915 manufactured product line of Greyhound Line farm machinery.

I never look ahead at the Smokstak calender so that the monthly flip is always a nice surprise.
So what do we see this morning when I finally remembered it was May? A dandy shot of a 24-75 Greyhound engine contributed by none other than greysteam24hp!
Great photo Grey and congratulations.

A short video of Byler's 24 hp Greyhound. Taking easy spin on throttle with a baker fan. Hear the sound. Turn your volume up a little.

I just got the rare pinback " Banting Machine Co. Toledo, Ohio" last Saturday. This pinback comes from Michigan near Mr Russell's Greyhound engine. The face is a mint condition. The Banting Machine and Supply Company acquire business in 1901. later in few years the name changed to Banting Machine Company. The last document I found in government Polk business book was until 1918. I believe the button was generally used as an agent of Buffalo Pitts line machinery.
Here are the two close up photos. The width is approximate 1 inch by 5/8. That is small. I think it could be used by salesperson or blockman to attach on suit/tie. Other way it could had been given at Annual Threshermen company picnic.

I have comparison of two Ashcroft steam gauges.
The early gauge came out was "The Banting Machine Co.Toledo, Ohio" It be pre 1918 for Buffalo Pitts line or on any makes second hand rebuilt engine. The later gauge was "The Banting Mfg Co.Toledo, Ohio". The gauge was used during the manufacturing time until it ceased. Every gauge "Banting Mfg. Co." should have installed on Greyhound engine.

I have added another two videos. Both were copied from front tv. The first video was taken sometime in winter of 1996. The second video was taken in summer of 1991. I was younger at the time of operating. The engine was a last day of steam due to my concern of firebox issue. I helped grandpa move the engine before he mow some tall grass. Both videos are one of my 24 hp Greyhound. This engine is the only example known to be the original bunkers, sheet metal guards, other parts except the whistles and roof sheet.

I have one greyhound paper weight approximate 6 inches long.
Neat piece. Looks identical. Nothing related to the company.

Here are four attached photos of Atlee Bylers 24 hp Greyhound demonstrated at Trumbull County Steam and Gas show Middlefield, Ohio. He would probably demonstrate again this year.

1. Half hour economy test to prony brake.

2. Belting power to a prony brake.

3. Transfer sled full pull power I ever seen!

4. Doing skills on teeter totter! Their reversing valve was easy to handle.

Hi Atlee Jr !

Welcome to the stak!
I am not sure what town. All I can tell you is near Mantua, Ohio.
I was on the trip with a gentleman probably at least 15 miles from Mantua.
The 24 hp will be a dandy ground thumping engine.
Michael D. from Bulger, Pa has one. That isn't far from you.

I never thought about it until now. I have found it in the Greyhound catalog. Scanned and edit a close up image of Greyhound thresher tooth. There is a raised letters that says "B M Co. T1" (Banting Mfg Co. Thresher 1).

I have a original blank pages pocket book. See photo below.
I received a call today. He knew a gentleman at his young age had a tour through the Banting Mfg Dorr Street plant where they were demonstrated how it were built The Greyhound Line machinery. He was a tell a tale story of Bantings. He said it was impressive tour. This pocket book I have is similar piece that was given to tourist!
Note: top left message says " WE EXTEND you a cordial invitation to go through our factory when in Toledo. Always glad to show you how we build The Greyhound Line."

I just wonder if anyone made a photo of factory assembly?? The search are on the way around!
