R&T Gas Engine School

 

Rough and Tumble Gas Engine School

Rough and Tumble has started the first Gas Engine School offered anywhere in the US for the operation, safety, and care of gas engines. Students will operate and learn about engines from our unique oldest gas engine in the US, the Otto and Langen built in 1867 to our large 485 hp Cooper engine.

Students with also run the O&L, Cooper, Twin Miller, 3 ball Klein, 15 HP Reid and some small engines as well. There is so much to learn between anything from ignition to timing of these industrial beautiful engines of the age.  The Volunteers that take care of these engines are several of the most knowledgeable people in the use of these engines.

The 2018 School will be held Saturday June 23rd and Sunday June 24th  9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday is the practical class and engine running basics.  Sunday students will run engines.   Please email Kathleen Hazzard at bearsmomma@comcast.net  if you are interested in attending school.  The application is available in Resources here.

School will be limited to the first 18 students that apply.
