Question Engines doing stuff

It's always nice to see a nice slow running engine, but I either have a short attention span or feel I need to be actually doing something with my engine. To see an engine working is what it's all about. I am going to belt up my 3-5 LA to an old compressor pump we have but I have been trying to come up with an idea for something better. I have seen engines belted to pumps, grinders,rock crushers,ice cream makers, can crushers etc, but would like something unique to use or even build for the job. Any ideas?

Maybe Tony Leonard will post a pic of his Novo and the bouncing balls. It was a real crowd pleaser at Denton

Don't know about Ontario, but here it gets really hot in the summer during "show time" and I alway thought it would be nice to hook one to a really big fan.
I also seen one running a model rollercoatser and another running a pencil sharpner. Fred

Here is our 1930 Fuller & Johnson ND 2 HP powering a fan. We have a bigger fan for either our 1922 IHC M 1 1/2 HP or our 1942 IHC LB 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 HP.

I plan to have my Novo Pump outfit bouncing away at the Turnersburg show this weekend. I will plan to take some pictures of it and get them posted on here next week.

I have been making an attempt this year to take a working exhibit to almost all of the shows that I attend. Here is what I had running at the show over the weekend.



Fuller Johnson 2 1/4hp running a water pump and a 1 1/2hp Gade running a Majestic Cement mixer...People want to know why there is a twist in the belt...great converstaion starter...

Below is a friend's display from the same show:

Photo Re: Engines doing stuff

Here are some pictures of my 1924 1-1/2 hp Novo Pump Outfit with our homemade ball popping fountain in action. The fountain design is a product of countless discussions between my Brother-in-law Chris Euart and myself along with some imagination. Chris did all of the fabrication as he is the master builder in our group and I think he did a real nice job. Thanks Chris!!!

We are still trying to come up with a catchy name for this fountain so maybe someone out there has a good idea for a name they could pass along to us.

I saw this set-up this past weekend at Turnersburg. Really neat idea. The balls do stay in the jug, look at the 2nd picture, they are at the bottom, then look at the 1st pic, they are being shot up in the jug by water when the pump is in the pumping stroke. Maybe Tony can explain it better.
