I have 3 running and 3 to restore - 1 is a 1870 culver - a early vaughan and a 1946 Ottawa with a wisconson engine - the others are a vaughan a wade steel frame and a cascade witch was made it oregon too -- I've had the Ottawa and vaughan at shows and will take the culver next year with them. Hope this helps. If you need anythin, just ask -- John

We have what I believe is an early R.M.Wade drag saw, as of yet cant find any kind of serial number or tag on the old brute, just recently got done making all new wood frame from white ash and redoing the motor, new bearings and rings, new stem for the lunkenheimer mixer, and lord knows what all else to be done yet as we are not finished yet, it has the timer ignition system rather then the magneto . I would hate to have been the " ONE MAN " that had to drag these around the bush as they are advertised as " ONE MAN DRAG SAWS "

Regards,

Brian

We have a 1937 Stover with a 2-2 1/2 hp throttle governed Ct engine that we use at shows. It is a kerosene engine but we run it on gas.
