This site has been created in the interest of all Stationary Gas Engine hobbyists. I invite every gas engine enthusiast to join me in making the hobby a safe and enjoyable pastime for generations to come. It is through education and sharing that the gas engine hobby will endure. After all, we’re just the curator’s of our collections for a short period of time. My name is Mark Meincke ( alias Otto Sideshaft ) and I live along the south shore of Lake Erie in Wellington, Ohio. Wellington is located about 35 miles west of Cleveland, Ohio. I’m married to Wendy, my wife of 36 years.
I have owned and restored hundreds of gas engines in the past 40 years. I researched gas engines for 25 years before I had the notion to write a book about the hobby. I’m now the author of “The Complete Guide to Stationary Gas Engines”. Writing a book about the gas engine hobby was my way of putting something back into the hobby that has given me so much.
