    I have got one of the above machines (Thiel Auto Taskmaster 120watt .57amps 240volts & type ref no: 65/48A144) I would like any type of information on this machine. Any help will be greatly appreciated.


    I saw this strange device being demonstrated by its enthusiastic inventor at the Windsor IOG / Saltex show in 1981. I think probably best summed up as “a good idea at the time – maybe”?

    Would seem that the company / product didn’t last long.

    Thanks wristpin for your reply, it looks like it will be easier to get an air filter & exhaust for my Jap 2a engine .!!!!!!!!


    That is amazing that one has survived, well worth preserving. I wonder who patented it?
    Would make a good subject for an article in The Cultivator.
