I Forge Iron

Interesting Buffalo 200 dual drive blower.


Recommended Posts

Just picked this up..  Came from up around the old Devens Military base..     Be my guess that it was army issued because of the paint which look original. 

I have not dug into it yet to see if the shafts were welded on or solid from the factory but who ever did make it done a might fine job. 

It uses the silent 200 early cast iron gear box and a belt drive on a 1 to 1 pulley system..    The pulley system acts directly on the pinion/fan shaft..   While the handle has a pawl gear ontop with a lock out so you don't get beat up by the handle whipping around. 

This blower I have in mind for the Buffalo RR forge.. Having the electric and hand crank doesn't get much better than that..  Turns over super smooth but she is a bear..  Gonna be a great left arm work out.
