If KG1584 can't find it, I have another version of the same picture that I can scan, I think it was the next one on the roll Kind of interesting how a little town in IL spawned quite a few steam lovers Must have been the water.

I found the photo I was looking for of Halfkecks granddad and mine when thet got together for a mini reunion in Woodland Illinois(August 1976). The engine on the left is halfkecks halfkeck . The right one is our 1/2 scale Freelance. I have not had time to get the newspaper article copied yet but will do so some time.

I have some other pics of some other models engines from about that sime time frame when halfkecks granddad got the engine done. I have pics of Ernie Steinbring with his 1/3 Case and Carter Dalton with his 1/3?? scale Nichols. I will get them posted soon. Any body seen Carter Daltons engine lately??

Travis - I also have several pics of Pontiac from the Mid 50s etc. I will get some posted. If you want I can slo burn them to CD and send it to you. let me know

Carter Dalton built at least two engines one was a 1/3 scale of a N&S and the other one was a 1/3 scale Case. I found pictures of the Case in an old E&E magazine and have seen the N&S. Eddy Dalton has the 1/3 scale N&S at his home (Westville, Indiana). The Case is rumored to tucked away in a relatives basement with a asking price of $12,000. I understand that it will need lots of work. From the pictures it looks to be an okay engine but not on the same par as a 1/3 scale reduction engineering engine which you can buy for $10,000 - $12,000.

Dear workhorse,
If I have looked at the picture of your grandfathers engine one time I have looked at it 100 times.....dont you think that it is time to get it down and finish it ? In the future I would like to see a picture of you either riding it or getting pulled around by it. I think that that would make grandfather smile !

As a group I believe many people on this board can help you complete this engine.

KG1584 thanks for the post. Reminds me that I need to get up there and see grandma soon.. That is Doug on the engine by the way. What a great picture.

Casemaker thanks for the information. The Dalton N and S scale is a neat little engine. Would be great to see it out sometime.

CASEMAKER, Thanks for your intrest in my wallhanger. I have considered doing that many times over the years, but just can't seem to get the ball rolling. Maby since I now have the expertise of all the guys on SMOKSTAK it wouldn't be such a impossible project afterall.
My busy season, with our water well drilling busines has just started, but when it slows down in the fall, I may just get off my duff and get started.

Thanks, Leonard Chubb

Well the balls rolling now..... is this a quarter scale or a third scale ....how big is the boiler barrel ? A quarer scale is close to 8 inches and a third scale is 10 inches.... the first thing is to find some blueprints that can be worked off of...

Halfkeck,
the Dalton N&S engine was built from taking measurements from my brothers 20-75 rear mount double. Carter would call up Bob Johnson (North Terre Haute, Indiana) who owned the big engine at that time and Bob would go out and get measurements and call Carter back with them. According to Bob this happened several times over several years. Bob only saw the engine once it was completed and it turned out pretty good. I guess you could call this model engine a N&S telephone special.

The full size N&S engine that Bob owned came from west Terre Haute where it was purchased new. It was delivered with a 14 bottom plow which did not survive. Bob said that this engine handled the 14 bottoms with plenty of power, so I kind of chuckle when you hear about 110 Cases pulling 12 bottoms.

I think you need to change your screen name for as much as you bash case engines.....................maybe "Modelmaker"?

You could imply that I am bashing Case engines with my comments above, but that is not really my intent...it was to make smaller engines look better !

Not to many people today would even consider hooking up a 14 bottom plow to a 20 hp engine. But this engine was primarly used for plowing and wore the 14 bottom plow out without damaging the engine. I still would not have wanted to try steering it.

I think a few years ago a larger plow was pulled successfully by a Rumely engine at Pontiac, but cannot confirm this.

I posted some model photos again in my gallery today. I thought I should put them somewhere. Hope this is okay.
Gary

Warren Bellinger sent me this photo showing Stan Van Vark's 50 hp Case, Otto's half scale and Bellinger Brother's quarter scale Case models all in Iowa.



This photo copy of a photo was sent to me by the late Danny Roen, of O.R. Aslakson's 1/3 scale model Nichols & Shepard double rear mounted engine at New Rockford, North Dakota.



This is a beautiful quarter scale Case built by Dick Tombrink of Worden, Montana built.



Sue Tombrink seems to be in trouble with Dick, according to this sign?

Here is photo of a George White engine built by the late John Crook of Ontario. John came to Saskatchewan to help with harvest every fall and would take in as many show as he could. He also built stationary engines and a very nice 15-30 McCormick Deering tractor.

And here is John with his McCormick Deering at the Estevan Model Engineering show a few years ago. I know it isn't steam but!

There was a show on RFD tv about the gentleman, and his building the McCormick. It was correct in every detail but one-- he ran it on a battery ignition,instead of building a magneto. Even the gear ratios in the trans were correct.
I'm sure his steam projects were beautiful too.

I believe you are correct. I have heard from other people that it was aired on RFD tv. They also had a show on about the Estevan Model show. In Canada the show was called the Prairie Farm Report.

This beautiful 1/2 scale 40 h.p. Case steam traction engine was built years ago by the late Ted Lange of Hector, MN. I remember reading in an old WMSTR show book that Ted fabricated most of the engine parts! (Hopefully someone can give more information on this engine?) Watching and listening to the engine run, it purrs so smooth and quiet. Interesting to watch it powering the miniature sawmill with very good governor action. (Probably Ted's grandson operating it in these 2003 Rollag photos?)








In the Third Edition of the LAKE REGION PIONEER THRESHERMEN'S ASSOCIATION book they have a photo of Ted and his 1/2 scale 40 CASE, it says:

Ted Lange and his model CASE engine. Ted built this little engine in his own shop at Hector, Minnesota. Everyone says, "how did he do it?" Only Ted could do it under the conditions as they were. Ted is an expert mechanic.

Here are some pictures of scale models that I scanned from my great Uncle Harry's slides. I'm sorry, but I don't know anything about the engines except that most of the pictures were taken at the Mt. Pleasant show in 1958. The photo quality isn't that good as they were scanned from slides and Harry wasn't the best photographer, but maybe someone will recognize the engines and say something about them.
