I do not own this machine.
It resides at a working blacksmith shop in Glen Haven Michigan, photographed July 2011.
I could not find any manufacturers identification on this portable forge.
Casting number 960 on the flywheel and 970 on the impeller housing.

Update July 2012: this forge is shown in the Blacksmith's section of the 1902 Sears catalog.
It is listed as a Sears, Roebuck & Co's Portable Forge.
