:dude:  Awesome. 1893 Backus hatbox two-blade. That "someday" sure is taking a heck of a long time to come about. I fervently hope someone saw it and thought it was cool enough to save. I've pored over the patent drawings for these (and other) Backus motors and in general, their construction doesn't appear robust. I'll bet that compared to some others of the period, poorly-engineered lubrication mechanisms caused premature wear and failure in a lot of these motors.

PS - thanks for working on this picture Jim - I couldn't get the image to appear nearly as clear as you got it  :up:
