This is a butter churn from my collection. I hope to exhibit this at a show next summer. I may power it with a Maytag twin. I am not currently wanting to sell it. It is in very good condition, it just needs minor touching up. It is set up for a hand crank as well as engine power. But I think your arm would get tired before the butter was done. I like to have something for my engines to power to show people what the were used for.

This is an engine from my collection. I bought it at Portland swap meet a few years ago. The tag reads Bedford Model 1500 Indiana Limestone Co. Bedford Indiana. It resembles a model 700 Clinton but there are a few differences. I have'nt had it running because the ignition points are missing. I am planning to keep this engine and would like more info.
