this is located a town over from me. Twice a summer, they hold a tractor show with a big outdoor market of...anything. in the back woods is a large sandpit, maybe 10 or more old steam shovels from the 1920's or so just diggin' in. Toys for grown up boys. and people riding around their old tractors, and of course, the "hit-or-miss engines" and their rhythmic sound...like these:

last big winter storm we had in 1979, my father fired up the Jaegar he restored and ran the heat in the house all night with it, like farmers did before electricity reached out into the countryside....talk about white noise...chug chug chug poof! chug chug chug chug

yep ndm, men and their mechanical machines...:) *sigh* if only women were interested in cool old stuff instead of shoes, i'd have aphrodisiacs and would finally get laid :) lol

a pulley would be bolted onto one of those wheels, and drive a belt that would power a washing machine, generator, water pump, whatever. adjust the flow of gas, and it runs at any speed you want.
