My reason for commenting on it NOT being a Fairbanks Morse is the people I mentioned it to all said "oh a Fairbanks Morse"

I have a turn of the century Fairbanks catalog. They were a big one if not the biggest industrial wholesalers in the country. They sold everything from flat belts to locomotives. The bound volume is about 3-4" thick. They marketed my Victor make and break marine engine about 1910 and of course the Bates and Edmunds famous Bull Dog line of stationary engines.

My Dad worked for the Fairbanks Morse Co. for 30 years ending in 1948. He was what they called a scale trouble shooter. He traveled all over New England by steam train. Repaired scales that weighed trucks and railroad cars in the paper mills. Fairbanks was quite a company then.
