This is an advertisement from 1902 for an Otto Canedy forge blower.

It is funny to note that Champion claims the spiral gearing is the best thing to come along on the face of the planet and C. Otto caims that their blowers do NOT employ the spiral gearing and never will. Ever. Period.

Probably the only aspect I don't care for about Canedy Otto is how lightweight the blower/stand is. It moves about unless you can secure it tight. The Champion 400 with three legs stand is all I can lift to move it about the shop. In fact, I pull the blower off the stand and move them separate if I have to go far.
