Built his first gas engine in 1902...
Check valves...Asbestos rings,
Tinkered until it started and ran with ease


I love stories like that :thumbs:

Very neat article. Thanks for sharing.

According to everything that I have read about Stanley Shaw, he was a mechanical genius.
Here are a few more links on Shaw history:

Shaw also built several automobiles:
