Old Machine Press
Thank you for visiting the SubscribeStar page for Old Machine Press.

I established Old Machine Press in 2012 as a way to self-publish articles and books about obscure and nearly forgotten machinery. I mainly focus on aircraft and aircraft engines but also detail automotive, marine, and rail equipment. I have published over 175 articles and two books.

I publish two articles on the Old Machine Press website every month, and a number of books are in various stages of completion. My research and writing are a passion and hobby. I have no interest in seeking random advertisers or losing control of my work by using mainstream publishers.

With your help, I can continue to publish well-researched content on Old Machine Press that is free to everyone. With your help, I can devote more time and resources to finishing neglected projects and creating new material. Believe me, a little will go a long way.

Thank you for your support.

Interested in the cover image?

On the left is the German Junkers Jumo 223 aircraft engine. The Jumo 223 was a 24-cylinder, opposed-piston, diesel engine capable of over 2,000 hp (1,491 kW).

The aircraft in the upper-middle is the Hawker Fury I. The British fighter was powered by a Napier Sabre engine and attained a top speed of 483 mph (777 km/h).

The automobile in the lower-middle is American J. Walter Christie’s V-4 racer from 1906. The car was one of a number of front-wheel drive automobiles that Christie built from 1903 to 1909.

On the right is the Italian Laboratorio Sperimentale Regia Aeronautica airboat (idroscivolante) from 1935. A number of idroscivolanti participated in the Raid Pavia-Venezia from 1930 to 1939.
