At the same time that Montgomery-Ward was selling the Jacobson engines, they were also offering this car as shown below. Could this be the same car as the one shown in my earlier post?

If you have been following this Jacobson thread on a regular basis you would want to read this about the Warren Gear Manufacturing Company
and how they were related to Jacobson.

We are too close to the 200 engine mark in the Jacobson registry to stop now. Please send in your pictures and info for the registry when you find a moment!

Here is another early pictures of early Jacobson employees:

Jacobson built them. They are an upright version of the Sturdy Jack. The catalog page says from the plant in Pennsylvania. I have records that Jacobson supplied parts for these engines.

The Spotless Co. aka "The South's Mail Order House" were regular advertisers in the Southern Planter magazine in 1908 and 1909. No engines advertized yet.

If you have literature and/or engines from the Spotless Co. Inc. I would like to see it.

Thanks!

Apparently, when Charles Jacobson was in Saratoga Springs NY he began to have legal and financial difficulties, as this 1917 document shows.

This is the only other type U Jacobson sideshaft that I know of. I believe it is in Great Britain now.
Now many followers do we have outside the U.S. and Canada? Let us know.

This is the oldest evidence in print of the first engines that I have. Note message on the bottom. Makes it 1904.

Automatic engine with dynamo. Note use of water-spray in exhaust and gas regulator shell as a possible accumulator.
