2 1/2 horsepower sandwich engine

Sandwich, IL was known for its ag engines and industrial corn
husking/shucking power from the 1880s until they sold the plant
to the New Idea Co. in Coldwater, Ohio in 1930.

That's when the jobs went away.

Alas, this seems to be increasingly the story of America. I guess the question ultimately will be, "Can you fuel an economy of 300 million people without making anything?"
A frined of mine says, "I don't think we can all just stand around selling sh** to each other."
