Rough and Tumble Gas Engine School

The letters have been mailed to the students for Gas Engine School 2019.  If you do not receive your letter(s) by Saturday, March 23, 2019 please email Kathleen at [email protected]  If anyone is still interested in attending the class, we still have a few openings, please email Kathleen to register.

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 2019 School will be held Saturday June 22nd and Sunday June 23rd 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 [email protected]  if you are interested in attending school.  More information on the Gas Engine School is available here.  The Gas Engine School application is available in Resources here.

School will be limited to the first 24 students that apply.
