Default 2 3/4 Galloway owner from northern Kentucky

Hello everyone:

I am new to the board and would like to introduce myself. I live about 60 miles south of Cincinnati, Oh and 30 minutes north of Lexington, Ky. I am here to learn everything I can about these wonderfulo pieces of iron and working them within my blacksmith shop while running my lineshaft setup.

I hope to make many new friends and ask that people bare with me as I am still in the learning stage, but as I am retired I am trying to work with and expand my setup as much as possible.

My engine from what I can tell is a 2 3/4 hp Galloway, water cooled and already running and apart of the lineshaft. I have a 25lb little giant, belt driven double grinder, sharpening stone, and soon a drill press in the lineshaft setup. My plan is only to run one machine at a time due to load.

R,

Bodak

Hello S Mullins:

Yes you are close and you are right, I have not met many that share the spark of both blacksmithing and engines in this area. I am 38 myself and have been blacksmith a number of years, and been around lineshafts for about 3yrs. This past summer I finally installed my own.

I'll PM you with my contact info.

R,
Bodak
