Default New to the Smokstak forum

Hello,
I am new to the smokstak forum. My name is Christopher, I'm 51 years old and live in Dayton, Ohio.
I joined the forum, because my late Father left us with a three car garage, and basement, etc, full of things. Why the name Lotstosell. Much of it has been sold, however I still have a ways to go. I was looking for a place where someone might be interested in the Jaeger mixer. I listed it on the enginads site.
I am keeping the engine and want to restore it. Don't have any interest however in the mixer. It's a shame that the mixer part of it seems to be worth more as scrap metal than as an antique. No one seems interested in it.
I really like the hitnmiss engines that I have seen at the fairs. I would very much like to get the Jaeger engine restored and running, and would very much appreciate any help. Thanks, Christopher

Christopher,

I strongly urge you to keep the mixer and mount your Jaeger engine back on it. The engine mounted on the original mixer is a rare find these days. Engines actually doing something always attract more attention than the engine just sitting there running. I wish I had more stuff to run with my engines. A cement mixer would be handy around the yard too. However, I understand that it is yours and you can do what you want with it. Have fun in the engine hobby. I know I do.

Ryan

Talking Re: New to the Smokstak forum

Maybe you two, should get together.... and make a Trade, or something.... One Hit & Miss Engine, for a complete Jeager Mixer, in restorable condition... both would get a great deal out of that kind of trade......

To add to Ryan's post: Sometime in the past on this forum, a poster mentioned his mixer. He'd gotten marbles of all colors and had them tumbling around in the mixer barrel. Spectators could get an idea how cement gets mixed up in that rotating barrel.
Just an idea. I, personally, think the engine and mixer should stay together. As said though, it's yours to do as you wish.

I agree,definitely try to keep it together and restore it.A working machine is a lot more interesting than just the engine alone.Good luck with your project.

Thank you for all of the advice. I am sorry that I do not have any interest in the mixer part of the Jaeger. Like my neighbor and I where talking the other day, the mixer is really only good for mixing. (We have a new modern electric to do that with.) A man from the road dept. offered $25 yesterday for the mixer. (Brother in law, and Mother think that's a little low.) If someone wants it bring your trailer and $50 dollars, load it up and get it out of here. Sorry again I have no interest in it. If you out there have a Jaeger engine, and no mixer, here is a mixer for sale. I was only introducing myself, and asking for help about the engine. We have many more things that my Father left us with that may be of interest to you all out there.
Thanks, Christopher

Christopher,

If you wish to sell the items, please use the Engineads sections. Your audience will be larger and advertisements are not allowed in the threads.

While I'm not a "gas" person (steam is #1), I think you might regret selling the mixer. Give yourself some time to appreciate what your Father collected. Perhaps your kids will take an interest.

Best of Luck,

Beth

Christopher,

I apologize for not welcoming you to Smokstak. That was very rude of me. You will find more information and helpful people here than anywhere else on the 'net.

What kind of help do you need on the Jaeger. You will find that parts for these Hercules built engines are available from many of the sponsors of the site on the sponsors page. Just ask an questions you like and sombody here will jump right in.

As for the mixer....I would give you $50 in a heartbeat, but we are too far away from each other. There are many Jaegers that are missing their mixers out there. Somebody on Smokstak will take that thing off your hands. Just be patient.

Again, I am so sorry that I didn't welcome you and let us know your progress on the engine and show us some pictures.

Ryan

Thank you for the welcome. My apology to all if any one was offened. I do have the mixer listed on the engine part of the site. Appreciation of some of the things that my Father left us is one thing. Going through all of the shear volume of things (with mostly my two helpers myself & I) is another thing. It has been a little overwhelming at times. There is still much to do. I will keep everyone posted. Thanks again, Christopher
