I seem to have stumbled across a nice looking Waterloo in a undisclosed location (i have a agreement with the owner not to share). The gearing is nice and thick and fits together in a nice manner, a 2 speeder it is. The grates are also in immaculate shape. It will need a new front flue sheet to be re certified according to our local inspector, but other than that it is in good shape, The only thing i am wondering on it is the truth behind a engine mounted buzz saw that the current owner has that goes on it. He showed me right where the 3 bolts are that it mounts on ( the right rear watertank) and the belt wheel that hooks on to the end of the shaft and runs back to the saw. He has the engine, the buzz rig flywheel, the buzz rig that hooks onto the water tank, the whistle and the spark arrester, all original to the engine he says. my question is, is the buzz rig a actual component that was offered for the engine? i have a few pictures of the engine where it sat for a few years until recently moved and also of the buzz rig equipment,
here is the link to the pictures i have. https://www.flickr.com/photos/126511807@N02/
thanks, mike besko

This is fairly common on Canadian engines.

Mike,

You should get in touch with the Searson clan. I believe they have one.

Where's Onkle G when we need him!?

Good Luck,
Beth

Rollag!

Checked the Waterloo catalogues and don't see a saw attachment; though they very well could have made one. John Goodison company of Sarnia, Ontario made them and many of their saws ended up on other engines. If you have some parts numbers off the saw, it might show up in Goodison parts books. I don't have Waterloo parts books. Lots of good cord wood in Ontario so traction engines generally burned wood rather than coal. Those saw rigs were a handy attachment.

Well I stopped by today and found out some more information. It was last certified in Midland, Mi in 2000, Here is what the stamping reads:
Waterloo.MFG.Co. 1738 <-Brand and Serial #?
0 . 1054. <-Heating surface area?
60000 CAR.FLA????? <-No Idea
TP255.OP170 <-Test Pressure and Operation Pressure?
24.6.21 <-Date Made?

The notes off to the side is my Educated guess from what i do know about boiler stamping. Help me if i am not correct, i can try to decipher the 3rd line more.

Hi, you've got most of it correct. Yes, Waterloo Mfg. The boiler design registration in Ontario is #1054. The shell plate is 60000 tensile strength, Carnegie Flange. Test and operating pressures are 255, 170psi. In Alberta, it was approved for 164. And the completion date for the boiler was June 24, 1921. This is a 18hp boiler, and there were a few variations of this design out there. These are very well designed boilers, built like a tank!

Talking Re: Waterloos Are Wunderbar!

Hey Folks,

I was wondering if anyone would happen to have any high res images of the Waterloo MFG. Co Logo? Need to get the logo reprinted after some water tank repairs. Thanks!

This 20-22 Waterloo was at the Ilderton, Ontario show this past weekend. It is owned by Mark Clark. It has been a perennial favourite at shows but was down for a couple of years owing to some pitting in the barrel. Working through the inspector for Western Ontario from TSSA, Mark sent the engine to Bond's welding shop in Dresden. I am not sure of their exact company name? Anyway, they welded in a new belly on the barrel.
Mark has it running 100% again and the ol' lion worked the saw mill all weekend. We didn't linger at the engine too long as it came up a heavy shower. We have been bone dry but they had a storm go through Friday night and land about 3 inches of rain and lots of wind at the show grounds.
The Waterloo, for many, was the cadillac of the threshing engines. They are easy to fire, manage and handle and the 20-22 was a favoured engine here in threshing and saw mill work.
Aloha,
RM

Because this thread deserves to keep going!
Here's a photo of The Gleadall Family's 1919 20HP Waterloo at the coldwater fall fair in 2016, being operated by Matt and the late Bill Gleadall. The engine sat from 2007 - 2014 and was brought back to life in 2015. Next is a photo of the engine awaiting to be brought out of storage in 2013.

Also, is a photo of a 25HP Waterloo at founders museum, just outside of Thunder Bay Ont.

Anyone have photos of Waterloo's that might have gone overseas? or engines in the US?

Mr Gleadall's Waterloo was a Johnson and Holt trophy winner at Milton Steam Era back in 2016

No wonder they look alike, Waterloo hired most of the Cornell( Haggert Bros Foundry of Brampton) workers when Cornell manufacture shut down and moved to St Catherine’s under J.M Ross . That’s when Waterloo started in the traction engine business. Those are good pictures, I was looking at a small Waterloo today that is nearly identical to them.
