Default 1897 Jack of All Trades getting finished

Thought I'd post this picture of my Fairbanks-Morse Jack of All Trades that I've had since I was a kid (a LONG time ago!!!).

Tomorrow, a friend and I will bark it off for the first time in it's new clothes.

Take care - Elden

You did a great job of restoring it and explaining the process.

Elden, are these the parts your looking for? They are the rough castings for my 4hp T and I was thinking about having more made. I also have the machining blueprints for them. It all depends on how many people who would like a set. There is a small foundry not too far from me that can do them.

Elden, that sure is a sharp looking Jack. I have one like it in my shop doubt that it will ever look that good. It's still in it's work cloths.

Question Re: 1897 Jack of All Trades getting finished

Elden: Nice job. Here is my 2HP Jack of Trades serial #66,xxx as found and run a week later a "LONG" time ago. It has a plug in the hot tube hole. Now it's just stored away with the IHC verticals keeping it company . It won't ever be painted and will stay in it's black work clothes as long as I have it .

Sorry file size was 480 x 640 and the file size limit is 800 x 600

Everybody:

Thanks for your comments! I don't know when I'll get it to the show circuit because I have so much fun at shows with my Hoyt-Clagwell.

I'm gonna have to postpone the bark-off from today to next week sometime. My buddy from Pensacola can't come over today to watch.

Take care - Elden

I am re-restoring a 2 hp T Jack for our club. I would be interested in a hot tub for this engine. All parts are gone with a plug in the hole.

Jim:

When you get around to it, I'd really like to have the drawing and pictures for my files. Who knows, some day I might go ahead and do an authentic replica. Thanks!

You did a GREAT job!!!
I really like the early 2hp Fairbanks Jack of all Trades.
I've never seen flywheels with two clamp bolts on a Fairbanks T.

At this moment I am changing my 3hp T over to a JOAT as well.
We had it on a small (low) cart on the sub-base, with a tall cooling tank.
However in our opinion it didn't look good at all.
We now make a cart with bigger diameter wheels (17") and removed the sub-base. Looking better already! Don't know what to do with the cooling tank though.
I think our (1907) nr 70347 is one of the first that doesn't came with the hot-tube, as it still has the hole in the inside of the cylinder, but the out side isn't machined.
