View Full Version : New Registery - Studebaker Clarke Floor Maintainers

Since the focus now seems to be on establishing registries rather than driving our Studebakers, I did not want the floor buffer owners to be excluded. Please provide your model number, serial number and rotating speed. I will lead off:

Model: FM-17 Serial number: 28014 RPM - 1750

If I get enough responses perhaps we could have a "Buff Out" where we use our machines to put a "Lark Shine" on an old oxidized Studebaker.


[EDIT] I realize that registry is spelled incorrectly, but I thought it appropriate if we could be boogled and ashaamed.

Gary - you are forgetting the Studebaker Gravely tractors and the Studebaker Onan generators. Who wants to step up and form a registry for those?


Edit: Oh wait, we forgot the STP cans that say division of Studebaker. We need to have a registry of those to know how many exist for posterity. :eek:

I will leave the Gravely registry to the Gravely Tractor Club of America. I actually own a Studebaker Onan generator, I wish I had known yesterday when I was where it is stored so I could have gotten the serial number. The issue with the STP cans is the numerous designs they had along with the ancillary products (Top Oil, Auto Blitz, etc.).

And this is proof that I drive my Studebaker Clarke buffer in the snow... No backing out of the garage and running back in using the same tracks.

What a wonderful idea for the next International Meet!!

Instead of valve cover racing, we can have floor buffer racing in the lobby of the host hotel! Perhaps the hotel management will give all the participants a few dollars off their room rates for helping the custodial staff perform their job in the process!!

Mine only has a 3/4 horsepower motor, would it be outside the rules if I found a 1 HP motor and swapped it out?

Not necessarily, what if they made a larger buffer with a bigger motor? Be no different than swapping a 289 in place of a 259.

Given the unique nature of the product in this registry, it is perhaps the most exclusive of all ownership rosters. Before we can reveal any of the inner workings of our fellowship, you need to first list your buffer/polisher on our registry. Once our judging staff verifies the authenticity of your unit you will be admitted to the fellowship and the secrets of the organization will be revealed to you.

Of course, you need to be "buff" enough to join the buffer group...

Oh no! Now I'm lost, since I can't positively identify the year and model of the STP can I've been dragging around for about 50 years and in 11 houses and a couple States. The front looks like #2 from the left and the back like #3. I sure hope there'd be a judging class for unopened originals with road rash. LOL

Who's starting the CTL rocket registry?

Elmer Warnken, the founder of CTL (Cincinnati Testing Laboratories) just passed away three years ago at the age of 95. Despite not having an engineering degree or a scientific background, he developed 91-LD, a "hard plastic" that was used as a heat shield on the Mercury spacecrafts. The company still is in business today, mostly as a subcontractor making components for commercial aircraft. There was a press photo taken in front of the CTL building when it was announced that S-P purchased them depicting Harold Churchill and Mr. Warnken as well as a Lark wagon and a Jupiter rocket nose cone.

Hmmm, maybe we should limit it to the brotherhood of ownership. That would cause people to have to scour pawnshops and industrial supply houses to find one of the coveted floor buffers. We would also see a spike in prices for the ones that we own.

I, personally, find this thread hilarious. But Gary, you are violating the first line in your signature block. I think this is the last thread that I will open that has "Registries" in the title and I've added the appropriate poster to my ignore list.

This is very similar to any thread that has anything to do with R-3 engines or how many were "factory" made and a long time ago I added the usual suspects who start or respond to those threads to the ignore list also. I'm simply not interested in the same arguments and self-righteous "knowledge" over and over.

Well, a sticker WAS an item associated with STP and the Sudebaker Corp. Yes, they probably printed more stickers then they made cars, but just think: we have no idea how many stickers are left!

Make sure your sticker comes with a certificate of authenticity. Rumor has it that they have been reproduced, we do not want any fakes in this registry.

We are an all inclusive brotherhood, we even take brothers of different mothers. In the same vein, we will accept your stock or highly modified buffers. We only ask that your pads be abrasive ...

Once we establish the Loyal Order of the Brotherhood of Electric Buffers we can work on the super secret workings of our organization.

That is a VERY valid point!

Given the demand of them, one may have privacy issues about wanting others to know they have a genuine Clarke floor buffer in their home, not to mention, if it was bought on the installment plan, you certainly don't want to make it easy for the Repo Man to come after you, should you fall behind on the monthly payments.

Unfortunately, you can no longer buy a new Gravely "tractor". We sell Gravely, they only offer zero turns, walk behinds and stand on models (plus the Atlas UTVs).

Gravely has been owned by Ariens since 1982.

This thread really has “boogled” my mind and it is “shaamful”that no one has recognized these problems sooner. Guido has identified the two main problems ofhow do we grow the club. His answer is obviouslyto 1. enforce strict rules of how far and often one should drive a Studebaker and 2. toscreen out anyone that makes spelling or grammatical errors in their forum posts.
We should make sure that SDC members no longer waste timeon any frivolous activities that keep us from driving our Studebakers. Anyone that takes time from driving tocollect and catalog Studebaker pictures, memorabilia, and trinkets or writingarticles for newsletters etc., clearly has questionable priorities that may notbe consistent with the level of commitment required to be a club member. Anyone that takes time from driving to attendmeetings, help another member with their cars, go to swap meets etc., clearly has questionable priorities that maynot be consistent with the level of commitment required to be a club member.
We should also do a much better job of screening membersfor their ability to spell and write at a level equal to Guido’s. In fact Guido is such an “expert” he has evencoined his own word to describe the level we need to achieve. Guido is an “annoited” expert. Unfortunately I’m not sharp enough to evenknow what it means so will probably be banned if the new guidelines areimplemented.
Let’s elect Guido to a new office in the club to enforce stricterpriorities. It can only help grow theclub if we set higher standards. Moreand more people will want to join the elite!

Like the cars, floor buffers always had competitors fiercely competing in how slippery one could make the them. My grandma had a Hoover floor buffer, and NOTHING got that hardwood floor in the hallway and the battleship linoleum in the kitchen shinier than grandpa's old underwear wrapped around the two buffing wheels. In fact, my grandma would let my younger sister ride on it as she buffed the floor thinking her extra weight helped removed every scratch!!

This needs to be done properly... we have had people bloviate about driving in the snow only to find out they merely backed out of the garage and then pulled back in. If you are going to be thrasonical about piloting your floor maintainer through the meadow, be sure to include photographic evidence clearly showing its off road capabilities. There is nothing worse than braggadocio that is not supported by the evidence.

I was hoping to chase the cows around with the Weasel if its restoration is ever finished... But now I think the Clarke may be a better alternative. The first hurdle would be finding the thing, and it'd be another adventure in getting it road worthy. If I can find it, at least that would make for a great "barn find" story.

A thought just struck me this morning as I was driving, we no longer need registries. Why not have the Census Bureau add a question regarding ownership of Studebaker's to their form? It is just a matter of "we the people" asking OUR government to do something to benefit us. If special interests can do it why can't we?

It's flattering that I inspire you Heather!...Now, how about in the future not making fun of folks who perhaps cannot (or will not) defend themselves....You're better than that aren't you?

Lighten up Ed :) Sometimes it feels like you are the Grinch that stole Christmas; once SN-60 posts on a thread, you know its not long before the thread will be deleted, modified, or turn into a mess.

Can't help it Heather, when I see someone getting picked on.....I ACT!!!........Terry has a worthwhile idea that, to me anyway, shows initiative!...And for some malcontent to start a thread making fun of that initiative aggravates me.....and it should you to!.....Ed

No, because the problem lies with those who fail to grasp the necessity, urgency and importance of cataloging the small number of cars owned by the active participants on this forum.
I agree 100%...

If you don't like registries or see no reason for them, don't use them, but don't try to belittle those that want to be a part of a registry.
There's no salary or corner office for those that VOLUNTEER to head a registry and there's no reward for being a part of one.
It's easier to pass by a registry post then to click on it, so please, if it's not your cup of tea, pass on by.

We should start a registry of malcontents.It can be those who start a thread that offends someone.
Or.
It can be those who complain about a thread in which most everyone is having some lighthearted fun.

For all intents and purposes, Gary has offered to take on a registry for Clarke products.

Admittedly, some of us did get a little silly (myself included) over his volunteering to do so. From what I read, the door is OPEN to anyone who owns a Clarke product that was produced during Studebaker Corporation's ownership to submit their information on what they have, and may end up with a submission or two. If Fred K. Fox intends to do another article on 'Those Other Studebaker Products' (Feb. 1983 TW), the information Gary collects would be a valuable resource to obtain photographs of them.

You aren't serious are you Craig??.....Anyone with eyes can see that Gary Hearn was/is deliberately ridiculing Terry by posting this thread....Insulting folks is something he apparently considers himself very good at! :(

I am in and in fact have set up "SDCForummalcontent@yahoo.com" to receive e-mail notifications for any registry updates that may occur.

I think all the humor to be had has been squeezed from this thread, and now all we have is seeds and rinds.

Be kind to each other, people. Sheesh.
