George Martin's Poppet Valve
George Martin, of Martin Outboard
Motor fame, conceived of the idea for a revolutionary replacement
for the commonly used reed valves long before he became involved in outboard
finally received a patent on his poppet valve in July, 1942. Paul Moneski (probably
with a great deal
of assistance from his wife) scanned the document and made it available to us.
The Curator is fortunate enough to have known George personally.
