I put off my restoration business to take care of the 110 tractors we have. The first thing I did when I got here was lube everything that turned over and assess what could run at some point in time. Then it had been almost four years of constant research trying to find out exactly what we have. I did have some time to get one running. Google search “1919 Avery cultivator” (I know it’s older now) and you can hear it running. I have cages around them now since Goomba has been here and all the park tractors (11) are getting glass boxes to keep people off and the parts intact. I saw what happened to Travel Town within Griffith Park in Los Angeles and it broke my heart. Rest assured that I am doing everything within my means to protect and preserve all the national treasures here at JUMP. I have been doing this since my dad let me push the lawn mower to the neighbor’s yard and over the course of some 50 years I have had a grand time with machines and the good people who own and operate them. I came on to Smokestak three years ago and after being forewarned about the feelings that the people have about this collection I have been well reserved on commenting. I do feel disappointed and saddened by a lot of the comments about the collection but people being who they are I guess it’s to be expected. There is a bright continuance to this story, this is what I have done with the rest of rest of Oscar’s tractors.

Enjoy,
Rob jumpboise.org
Thanks Scott & Maggie
Keep doing what you are doing. Thank you for coming on and sticking your neck out to the scrutiny. We are going to visit someday.

Since I posted the last message about Annie in October it was great to hear all the thanks and positive response. One response was from a man named Luke who thought of a great idea. After a lot of thinking and planning we are proud to announce that everyone will be able to see and hopefully hear Annie at the 2022 Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion in Rollag Minnesota when they feature the Rumely line of tractors. I would really like to thank the WMSTR and JUMP for the opportunity to make this happen, also everyone else who has kept a piece of vintage machinery for without us there wouldn’t be any of it left. Hope to see you in Rollag. Rob

myself, our committee, wmstr, and JUMP have been working on this since early last fall and are very excited about this. talk about trying to keep it under wraps for what felt like an eternity. also exciting about not only having her at Rollag, is that the plan is she will be running under her own power. thanks to all that has been involved on getting this relic out of the glass and operating for an upcoming expo. 2022 is going to be a very busy august and September.

Wow, That is great news to hear about the Annie! Maybe knowing the Annie will be running is enough to get my Grandpa back up to Rollag for the first time since '78! Big thanks for working on this guys.

I have to respectfully disagree with Casertractor, Kerosene Annie does not belong in the Smithsonian. Rollag is the Smithsonian of the hobby and she belongs there with her successors and her peers.

Thanks to Luke and the WMSTR Board and JUMP for making this happen. That will be a show I do not miss.

I think I will plan a trip back east for this. I have wanted to go to Rollag for a long time and now I have an excuse. Will get to visit family and see Tractors and engines. Maybe there will be an auction or something around then - always seems like there is a couple of big auctions back that way every year. Looking forward to it

I've had positive thoughts on this thread in spite of too much negative. This is my post 5,
"Annie is on display and can be seen. Was Oscar Cooke's display better, though he originally saved it and did some restoration. How will it deteriorate so severely as one post indicates? Let's enjoy that it's still around and that at least two folks cared so much for it."
Note also Rob Bs post 54 and others.

Hearing about Kerosene Annie coming to Rollag, I had the Caravan all gassed up and ready to go until I re-read and saw 2022!
That will be here before we know it. It should be a great event. It is worth the trip to Rollag any time, but that will be extra special.
Thanks to Rob at JUMP and to Luke and the crew at Rollag for helping keep all the dreams alive.

This is great to hear. All it took was someone to actually ask. Hopefully this opens up the opportunity to exhibit some of the other rare machines such as the Olmsted. Great news, I absolutely will be attending this show. Thank you Rob and Luke.

yes, it did start with an ask, but it does also take team work, a good attidude, and a good reputation. any stackers that have pics of annie from before jump's ownership, share them on here if you could.. or original advertisement pics or memorbelia.

Luke,
There are a series of pics around of field testing. They show up in the early OilPull catalogues too. Are these of Kerosene Annie or of another pre-production tractor? I can't find what I have at the moment.
Maybe I should ask, how many pre-production OilPulls were there?

I know Gary Yeager has posted some photos of Annie/experimental Oilpulls years ago. They are buried in old threads but I can take a look.

Here is a photo of it at the Oscar Cooke sale, taken by my late friend Henry Roskilly.

SWEET. That'll be a show to look forward to, and it'll be here before we know it - the older we get, the faster time goes...

Went to Rollag for a couple hours last year and this year I'm going to try and talk a few of my friends into making a day of it this fall.
