    This, for unknown reasons, reminded me of John Boy of the Walton's getting hit by a belt and going blind ( which never made a lot of sense to me, but maybe it's possible.) Always wonder how dangerous these belts were really, with no protection if they break. Cool video though

    I remember visiting this engine in the 90's. If you tip the guy he'll make it backfire and you can hear it echo off the hills.

    Where did the engine come from? How did this person come to be the caretaker of it?

    I'm sure you wouldn't have to bar it round and listen for the magneto to tell which stroke the engine's on. You could tell by just looking at the rockers, or feeling for the tappet clearance.

    The kid is like yeah whatever and the dad is super excited lol

    Did the engine originally use propane to start?

    If America is ever to be great again, we need to start making stuff again. You Hear Me Donald? Look at how great this machine is… Kids today are being taught how to scroll through their Snapchat and ask Google questions. I was born in '81 Detroit area and saw the transition away from heavy industry. I grew up with a tool in one hand and a part in the other. On work sites since diapers. Everyone wonders why the economy sucks. It's because we've exported all the heavy industry period… Glad to see that young lad showing an interest here. Also that giant electrical stator is just itching to be mated with that engine. I'd guess it to be somewhere in the ballpark of 3-5 Megawatts. Probably 4000 volts. Could light up a town with that setup.

    If you just want to hear the engine run, skip to 7:00.

    For a moment I thought this was originally a part of the pneumatic system that ran for years under the streets of Chicago connecting post offices and many department stores. Was there any relationship with that system?

    Cool. What was the generator rated at? How many amps, and at what voltage? K.W.? ETC. … Ed

    Is it possible that is really a triple expansion steam engine being run on air since there is no boiler handy? I see Chicago Pneumatic on the side of the engine but somehow it seems a little strange to burn some kind of fuel to run an engine to operate a compressor to provide high pressure air for for a pneumatic engine to run a direct drive generator. But hey, what do I know? This is the one set up in Jerome isn't it? Is this by the saw mill?

    Perhaps a dumb question, but how does a pneumatic power plant go?
