And EA Wood is (I think) Enos Wood of the Wood & Mann Steam Engines of Utica, NY. Closely aligned with brother Allen N's Wood, Tabor & Morse Steam Engines of Eaton (Madison County) NY. http://www.examiner.com/article/eaton-s-famous-wood-taber-morse-steam-engine-works

A company which later morphed into Skinner & Wood which later morphed into the Skinner Steam Engine Co.



At least I think this is the progression.

E.A. Wood is Edwin A. Wood.

He had many patents related to the steam gauge.

E.A. Wood later formed, and was the president of the Utica Steam Gauge Co. Allen G. Wood was the treasurer.

From the History of Utica, NY
FROM: Gazetteer and Business Directory of Oneida County, N. Y. For 1869.
Compiled and Published By Hamilton Child, Syracuse, NY 1862


The Wood & Mann Steam Engine Company is another large establishment for the manufacture of portable and stationary engines, boilers, circular saw mills, &c. The works cover an area of one and a half acres. The buildings are of brick, constructed in the most substantial manner. The capital invested is $200,000, and the number of hands employed from 150 to 200. Messrs. E. D. Wood and James F. Mann are now sole proprietors.

The Utica Steam Gauge Company employ fifteen or twenty hands, and manufacture an improved kind of steam gauge.

I was able to come up with this info a month or so ago. His gauge was unusual in that had a diaphram set up instead of the typical Bourdon tube set up of most gauges.
Another early gauge was the Utica Steam Gauge, with their small capsule-type diaphragm. Here is some information.

Hello Gary,

Wood & Mann were most notable for their portable steam engines. Attached is the bio for James Mann and the only ad I had showing their stationary engine, dated 1870. Jake

Has anyone ever heard of the e.a. Wood co. Of utica, new york? It looks like a very early steam gauge with a rooster in it. I tried to find out something on the co. But came up with nothing. Any guesses? Thanks.
