Thank you!

As announced I have now started a Registry of Jacobson Machine Mfg. Co. engines here:
http://buzzcoil.brinkster.net/moody/page101.html

There presently are only 5 engines in it but with you help it can rapidly grow to over 100 engines.

Here are 2 ads about Jacobson's 2hp Sturdy Jack pumping engines. I would like to add a few of them to the Jacobson registry and see where they fit in time. I'm looking forward to add your Sturdy Jack to the registry along with the other Jacobson side shaft engines.

I still have not been able to determine in what year the Jacobson Machine Mfg. Co., engines were first put on the market. Anyone knows? Attached is the oldest Jacobson ad I have (January 12, 1906) and it is from a selling agent in Batavia N.Y.

Has anyone ever found an ad that shows a table saw mounted engine like the one I posted earlier? I am still intrigued by the design and setup and have uncovered a stenciled number on one of the wooden supports that could be a model or part number. Don thought that Jacobson may have had a sister company in the equipment business that may have built something like this? Would love to find out it is a factory set-up...

Brian, that is a beautiful saw set up. I am a cabinet maker and I really appreciate that saw. I saw the pics on the registry for Jacobson Engines as well as on your posting. Do you imagine there was some sort of shield on the side to protect the engine from all the saw dust that would bathe it as it was cutting? As it sits, it looks like the cam gears would get loaded with saw dust. Have you ran some wood with it? If so or if you do, that would make a great video. Thanks for your posting, Leonard

Here are some pictures and a video of a 5hp Jacobson engine after the company's name was changed to Jacobson Engine Works and had moved to Titusville:

Leonard owns this Jacobson and he is here on Smokstak.

Hi Leonard,
Thanks for the compliments, this is my pride and joy. The saw is unchanged from the way I found it, minus a bunch of greasy, dirty sawdust. I purchased it from the grand-daughter of the original owner, she said that her grandfather used it to cut siding for buildings around the small town where he lived. It had a pretty extensive crack in the head that I repaired, hence the new paint. I had the original blade sharpened and ripped some boards with it, not fast but it chews thru wood pretty well. It does put a lot of sawdust all over the engine, no sign of shields anywhere.
Brian
