The legendary Wincharger collector and historian David Ballinger of Burlington, Iowa passed away last week.  David was "The Wincharger Guru."  His wife Jean gave him that title but it was absolutely true.  He was by far the most knowledgeable person I've ever met on Wincharger 6V machines.  He was a good friend and my go to guy whenever I had a question about a 6V Wincharger.  David contributed many of the photos and literature on the Wincharger website and was a frequent visitor to the forum.  He was a passionate collector of both literature and hardware and for many years he would display his collection and share his knowledge at various farm shows.  He even made the cover of Farm Collector Magazine.

I’m looking for Wincharger company newsletters and magazines that were published in the 30’s & 40’s for employees and distributors.  The earlier newsletter was called the “Wincharger Agent” and the later, “Winco Winner.”  There’s a lot of great historical info in these.  Please let me know if you have one and would like to share a copy.  I will post on the website so all can enjoy. 
Here are links to a couple of examples, thanks.

Thought I would post a few wind charger name plates I've come across or others have shared with me.  Some are common, others not so common.  Most are generator, a few are controller plates.  Do you have one you don't see below?
