Default Benner Hog Barn Engine Get-Together 2013

Last Saturday we had a few engine friends over to enjoy a get-together in my old shop, which was once an old hog barn. No one had to worry about any hog smell as it had been well cleaned out many years ago. Now it is my old shop with two wood stoves and lots of old junk lying around to inspect. Here are a few pictures and videos from the day...

Here is something really special. Jody Chonowski hand painted this sign after looking at pictures of an original. These pictures just don't do her talent justice. She did an outstanding job on this sign and we were grateful that they brought it over for everyone to enjoy.

John and Jody surprised me with this amazing gift of a hand painted sign for Blackstone engines. I plan to frame it and hang it in the house when it is not displayed with my engine at shows. Thanks Jody!





Now, I also would like some help identifying this glass piece owned by Terry Otto. It has embossed letters saying "United Engine Co. See-Thru Lansing Mich". On the other side it has "Pat May 23, 16 and No. 3"

It is odd shaped and has a ball type bottom, which may have been for attaching some kind of hose?

Any ideas from others? Or, has anyone seen others?

Are there catalog pics of something like this?

Terry has a few of these and at least one other size...











More pictures and videos to come a little later - gotta go....
