Default Geiser 1893 Drawings

I ran across a mention of some Geiser Peerless drawings while doing an image search. This note appeared in Farm Collector:

1893 Geiser - Second View

As promised last issue, here's another drawing drafted by Geiser Manufacturing Co., Waynesboro, Pa., and exhibited at the 1893 Chicago Exposition. This is one of three drawings sent in by reader Pierre Bos, La Cerisaie, 16, BD. Die, F.13012, Marseille, France.

According to Pierre, these drawings made their way to France where they were part of a display on agricultural mechanization in the U.S.

Last issue's drawing was a detailed look at the Geiser's boiler construction, while this issue's drawing shows the Geiser's mechanical layout. Details of the engine, plumbing, wheels and steering linkage show up particularly well, along with, we're sure, other details that Geiser fans will be sure to clue us in on.

On this page you can see a small version of this drawing, second row down in the middle:

Does anyone know if these drawings are available anywhere? I'd love to have some high resolution copies!

Thanks,
Paul

You do realize that you answered your own question right??? You have the name and address of the person who submitted them to farm collector. I would contact them.

Yeah you'd think. He has not replied in over 6 months. So I was giving up on that option.

Hello
Contact Mike Roger I'm pretty sure he's your man.
He's on here, so you should be able to track him down. He lives in Maryland. I know he has a picture of his 6 Hp. Geiser as his avatar.
