I like pictures with old buildings in them but it gets much better when the yard in front of these buildings is littered with flywheels, cylinders and other engine parts!

It is becoming apparent that just a little over 13,000 Jacobson engines were built, half being of the side shaft version. My goal is to have listed in the Jacobson Machine Mfg. Co. registry no less than 130 engines, which would amount to 1% of Jacobson's total production. We are about halfway there! Please keep them coming! The Jacobson registry can be seen here: http://buzzcoil.brinkster.net/moody/page101.html

I recently ran across some magazines called "The Gas Engine Publishing Co." for the year 1904. The Jacobson Machine Mfg. Co. had ads in there every month. In 1904 they manufactured a wide range of items but gasoline engines was not one of them. I now strongly suspect that Jacobson did not build engines in 1904 or in prior years.

Here are some of these Jacobson ads for 1904:
http://buzzcoil.brinkster.net/moody/page305.html

I have not seen any ads for 1905 so I don't know if engines were offered that year.

In 1906 I have a few ads in which Jacobson was offering gasoline engines.

If you have a Jacobson magazine ad from that period, I would like to see it.

Thanks!

Were any Jacobson engines exported to Europe and Australia? No one from there have registered a Jacobson. Here in Canada I have only seen a handful of Jacobson engines and they sport the "MOODY" name tag.

I'm sending you an order form for a Bull's Eye engine in case you wanted one for Christmas.

I owe Carl Thompson a big thank you for sharing his Montgomery Ward & Co. "Bull's Eye" engine catalogue with us. Here is the centerfold page in full size: http://buzzcoil.brinkster.net/moody/page118.html
