G Willikers, I believe Murray Dalrymple of Mitchell built the little Leonard portable . I think he would be my second cousin and we would share the same great grand father Robert who owned the real thing. He traveled to Northern Ontario to get some info of what was thought to be the only Leonard in Ontario. Murray passed away a few years back and it was sold to a mennonite gentleman around Millbank . A welder friend made the boiler and the engine was a little stationary out of a creamery .

The Frick is/was Bill Henry's. He died shortly after he got it back and never got to put it on the sawmill... His stepson Joe did the honors this year in his memory.

G Willikers:
You didn't mention anything about model portable steam engines . . . did you?

Anyway, the first photo is of Ray Wangler's 1/2 scale 6 h.p. model CASE portable steam engine on display at miniatureland at WMSTR, Rollag, Minnesota. Photo taken September 3, 2004.





This model portable steam engine wasn't too far from Kevin Andersons 18 h.p. CASE, at Rollag, so I snapped these two pictures of it on September 1, 2006. Sorry, I don't have any information on it . . . looks like an old CASE doesn't it?

Dad made a replica set of board chocks for our Gaar-Scott portable years ago and they work great. We still work the engine pretty hard at most shows we take it to and if it doesn't have its chocks on it rocks like crazy! It is an 8hp engine but has a 8"X13" bore and stroke so there's a lot of momentum to counter for such a small engine. Here are a few pictures of it with its chocks on at the A. Gaar Mansion Museum in Richmond, IN this summer in conjunction with the Model T Ford Centennial. It had been 138 years since the engine had been back home to the town it was built!

As far as Nichols and Shepard portables Ben. I've heard rumors of maybe one around but haven't seen one so it's hard to say for sure. I'll also point out that Nichols and Shepard may have had some sort of arrangement with Wood, Taber, and Morse at least as far as the portable engines were concerned. Look at the N&S portable on page 43 in Norbeck's Encyclopedia then compare it to the Wood, Taber, and Morse on page 50. There are some minor differences but definitely the same engine overall wouldn't you say?
