Friday’s flavors were vanilla, chocolate and maple-syrup. The hit-and-miss engine in the photo is running the ice cream maker. Stineman says he has six engines (three complete) that hail from the late 1920s to the mid 1930s.

As a former history teacher, Goldbach knew the name of purpose of every piece of equipment he had for sale, and was as happy to chat as he was to sell.
