Thumbs up GEM article

Nice article about the 50 HP Bessemer, Gary. I especially liked the supply list; I don't know if I've ever even seen a case of penetrating oil!

Leonard: First Thanks for the kind words about our engine. The supplier we get our penatrating oil from has cartons of eight cans. Not all the things used on that project was listed, I most likley don't want to know anymore the cost kinda went out of hand by the time it was finnished. We are rebuilding the starting engine a Cooper Bessemer engine air compresser, just a little more to do on it. Just having fun in Southern Illinois Gary
