i am wondering who made this stationary engine. it is about 3' long.
the only marks are stamped assembly #'s
the frame is cast iron, not fabricated.
one interesting detail is that the bearing mount bolts are locked in place with small set screws.

There is not much chance finding the original maker. There are many small engines similar to yours that were made by a local blacksmith or machine shop that never had a name on them and they were only sold locally with little advertising. The bed plate on your engine is interesting though and unique. I would guess it was made in the 1880's or 1890's.
