Organized in 1970, Branch 15’s mission is to support membership interests and activities and carry out educational activities for the benefit of both members and the general public as related to the collection, preservation, restoration, exchange, demonstration, and display of antique stationary engines, tractors and associated equipment, and implements. Branch 15 also conducts an educational “Saturday Class” held six months during the year at Powerland.
Several years ago, Branch 15 of the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association acquired in its entirety a complete early period flat belt line shaft fabrication shop. It was used to manufacture “Timber Wolf” drag saws in the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s. When the Wolf Iron Works Education Center is completed, the original equipment will be reassembled as close as is operationally possible and visitors will then be able to see operating equipment and machinery dating to the 19th century.
