New Way Stationary Engines

Aim - To serve and support the New Way Stationary Engine restoration community.
There was a New Way Stationary Motor inclined to Hit and Miss. It was designed that way but intermittently it would missfire and this in the confines of the beekeepers shed fired my imagination, grabbing my senses. I just loved the sound of the New Way 3.5Hp working - likely fuelled by a too rich mixture.
With each missfire came the tell tale puff of blue smoke and via the old sawbench, the beekeeping manufacturing business was underway, alive and well. Alf was in his element. Romance, nah, hard work but Hoots the New Way went a long way in firing the imagination of times past running in the present. The present, after all, that's where life is, it's not in the past, but romancing the past, that's the present if you're living it.
The priveledge of life. Present and past is now!!! - alive.

PATENTS for or by NEW WAY MOTOR COMPANY

The New Way Motor Company was by it's very nature, as pioneer in the commercial production of air cooled engines also responsible for having a multitude of patents issued both in USA and Canada.

WHY PATENT:
Behind the production of a quality product there is obviously going to be a myriad of aspects and avenues of production that need to be researched. This is especially highlighted when you keep in mind that the company made high minded claims of "Goes and Goes Right". Their target was without a doubt a quality product that would be accepted and utilized across the world.

RESEARCH :
Pioneering for success called for exhaustive research, mechanical genius and application of understanding of principles of heating and cooling as applicable to internal combustion engines. The early days of the 1900s would have been heady days for the small motor company based in a 100 Ft shed before it burst on the scene and expanded to the massive factory complex that represented the company by 1910. Generations later allied patents still refer back to the patents issued to the New Way Motor Company for reference and principles.

PROTECTION:
Patents provided some form of protection for the fledgling, innovation rich as it introduced it's Air Cooled Engines for commerce, farming, drilling, industry and the like to the world. If you are going to invest and send engines out by the train wagon load you don't want some other enterprise stealing and implementing the very ideas that set you apart.
