Welcome to Open Crank, the website for Stationary Engine specialists and enthusiasts. At Open Crank we concentrate mainly on Lampstart & Magneto Ignition engines but we have interests in other engines too. These can be found in our Miscellaneous section.

If you'd like to find out more about any of the engines shown please go to the contacts section for details.

Additionally, we offer an excellent 'Farrier Service' that covers equine shoe maintenance & management.
