Default Finally got the Norton power home!

If any of you remember, this project started last summer and turned into the most challenging retrieval I have ever done - and I expected it to be one of the easiest! The main shaft of the power extended deep into the concrete and would not budge. I suspect that due to the small footprint of the base there was a plate attached to the bottom of the shaft and the cement was poured around it for stability. I posted previous pics of the jackhammer operation to bust up the concrete. Had to wait for things to dry out to access it again. we went in with 2 cordless sawsalls and 4 batteries. It took quite a while but we were able to cut the 4" shaft off about 14 inches below the base. She is finally at home on display with the others of its ilk. Bill Klein

Bill,
Is that a Clark & Norton or just Norton power? Does it say Wellsville on it?

Egg on my face Brian! I cleaned some caked mud/grease off the base last Sunday & there was "CLARK" ! So it is a Clark & Norton after all.

Hey Bill,
How far away from Wellsville did this power land? It's gotta be a record- most of these landed locally. Maybe 40 - 50 miles away tops.

It was in the woods near the little burg of Kosuth - about 12 miles east of Clarion Pa. Bill
