I have never seen another one like it, but there are a "bunch" of engines I have never seen. I thought the precise machining of surfaces was of interest, as well as the water pump.

Don,

I haven't been to Tommy's place yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if he had 10 Hagan's by himself. I think you'd have to get to specific hp sizes of Hagan engines to have less than 10.

I had a 10hp Holland engine for a few years. I was told it was the only running 10hp Holland anyone knew of.

I traded it off several years ago to a guy in Idaho. I think he sold or traded it off to someone else so I don't know where it is now.

George,
How about a Fairbanks Morse type RE 2 cylinder 50 hp. made in 1911? I've not heard of too many of these around, especially still operational and in their original location. This one is located at the Mt. Wilson Observatory in the mountains above Pasadena, Calif. My brother and I have the privilege of maintaining and demonstrating it. More pictures of it can be seen at:

Regards,
Larry Evans

Hi All;
This old fart might as well get into this P___ing contest. All but two of these are pictured on Steve Barr's Badger 06 show pages.
8 HP O K ( Algoma ) 4-5 known
5 HP Western King, 2
2 1/2 HP Slinger, 2-3
2 1/2 HP Globe. Probably unique
Racine Boat Mfg. From Racine. Probably unique.
Seaman Marine 2 cyl.
I have three, 2 WC and 1 AC. I think the air cooled one is unique.
3 HP O K ( Algoma ) ,2-3.
This one is the last engine pictured on Steves engine pages. I didn't own it at the time but bought it after the show.
Pierce 2 cyl. inverted. HP ?, 4-5
Not pictured.
Alamo 2 HP vertical hopper cooled. 3-4
Not pictured.
Their are probably half a dozen others in the shed but I can't think of them right now .

In Jim McCracken's post (sorry, I don't know how to quote it) he included his 2 1/2 hp. John Lauson tank cooled "electric special". I also have one of these engines and had it at Portland this year. While I had it there, Mick Ingram told me he had one too. So, that makes three known examples. Mine is at home in southern WV and I'll be taking it around to some more shows in 2007. I'd sure like to see a picture of Jim's engine, as I had to make up a cart and tank for mine.

Hi Mike;
I took some sizes off Jims engine for my ignitor linkage. that is one complicated bunch of stuff. He told me about the third one, probably yours. The parts engine might have been mine since it was in sad shape when I got it.

Hey Daniel, Did you get it on Ebay 2 or 3 years ago from the central Ma. area?

And here is a picture of my 3 HP White and Middleton. There are only 2 known 3 HP's Mine and Jeff Holtz. There are maybe 20 Total White and Middletons. There is NOT ant mention of a 3 HP in any catalogs out there either!

Danial, I am affraid I made you pay what you had to for that one, I was the under bidder! Mine was missing the clamp for the head, Jim had that made for me and the "T" handle on the mixer, Otherwise it was 100% complete. It has better then 60% paint still on it. and also has the PURITAN lunt moss tag. I am happy I know where that one ended up. I often wondered what happened to it! Mike
