|Bob Rasmussen, one of my favorite hot air "characters"
displays these smooth-running engines of his own unique design. The one
on the right is the latest product of Bob's creative genius.
In case you hadn't noticed, in a previous lifetime these "jugs" helped a Volkswagen move down the street.
|Paul Jacobs displays his latest products
based on the Thomas & Smith engine. These pumping engines were featured
on the cover of the March/April 2005 issue of Live Steam magazine.
Without a doubt, there were more Jacobs items on display than those of any other single supplier. Throughout the show there were Lake Breeze fans, Brockway/Philips fans, Thomas and Smith engines, and more, all coming from Paul's catalog of faithful reproductions of engines from days gone by.
|Here is Paul's beautiful Brockway/Philips fan. This
particular unit was featured on the cover of the March/April 2004 issue
of Live Steam magazine.
If you are interested in any of these Jacobs items you can contact Paul via e-mail at (email@example.com)
|Lowell Wagner's Thomas & Smith engine served as the
prototype for Paul Jacob's T&S casting sets and drawings. Paul took
all his measurements off it. Then came the problem of scaling it down!
He pointed out some places where clearances get mighty tight,
commenting that sometimes things just don't scale down.
|A stunning rendition of a Jacobs casting set.
This head-turner was built by George Dankworth of Luna, New Mexico.
It was mounted on a beautiful end-table that was, in itself, a work of art.
