Default Bluffton Mfg Co

A good friend recently gave me a reprint copy of a Bluffton Manufacturing Co catalog. The catalog dates somewhere to the 1910-1912 time period. Bluffton Mfg appears to have been a jobber selling Nelson Bros. and Jacobsen engines for the 1-6 hp range. They offered a sideshaft engine for 9-35 hp sizes that we are not able to identify as all of the pictures show the head end of the engine. Some features that are obvious: T-head design typical of engines made in Ohio, spark plug ignition, ported exhaust, vertical governor, and a Powell Viking cylinder oiler. Unfortunately no side view of the engine is shown. Attached is one of the catalog pages in hopes that someone may know the identity of this engine. The big question is are there any survivors??
