    This is the Case 80 HP skid engine in the BR Sawmill. It powers the edger, the conveyors and some of the steam drive engines in the mill. It fires sweet but with all the equipment it runs you have to stay on top of it at all times.

    The 80 skid is a 1914 engine, very rare because it has reverse, most stationery engines only run one direction without moving the eccentric by hand. This engine has the same valve linkage as a traction engine.

    Getting better. I need a better picture editor at home. There is a real disparity from what my editor shows for picture size as to what it shows once it is entered into the forum.

    Do you have any idea what year this engine is?
