Note: A BIT OF HISTORY BY FITZ

The Fitz I-X-L Steel Overshoot Water Wheel is the product of three generations of unbroken experience in the design and manufacture of water wheels. Its high efficiency is due to its correct mechanical principles and to its careful design and construction.
The manufacture of Overshoot Water Wheels was begun by Samuel Fitz, in Hanover, Penn., U. S. A., in the year 1840. The industry has been carried on continuously since that time on the same site under the management of the son and grandson of the original founder.
The earlier Fitz Wheels were, of course, built of wood. A number of orders are still being received for iron parts for wooden water wheels, as described later in this booklet, but by far the greater part of the business done today is the manufacture of the all-steel Overshoot Water Wheels, in which the company specializes.
The real credit for the invention of the modern Steel Overshoot Water Wheel and for its development into its present highly efficient form must be given to the late John Fitz. Very early in his business career he realized the great possibilities of this type of water wheel and he devoted the greater part of his life to the study of its principles and the improvement of its efficiency. How well he succeeded is shown by the high regard in which the Steel Overshoot is held today. In spite of this, we have not relaxed our efforts for further improvements, but are constantly striving for still better results in every detail of construction.
The knowledge and experience accumulated by our organization during its long career in the water wheel business forms an even greater asset than our well equipped modern factory. Most of our employees have grown up with us, and our millwrights and mechanics have been trained in this line from early youth. In reckoning with your water power problems, therefore, we have a vast fund of practical experience to draw from and we are glad to place this freely at the service of our customers.
Sincerely yours,
FITZ WATER WHEEL COMPANY, J. S. Fitz, President.

HISTORY OF THE FITZ WATER WHEEL COMPANY
by Robert Vitale

The Fitz waterwheel Company started in the summer of 1902. Its history leading up to this date started back in 1840 when Samuel Fitz operated the Hanover Foundry. This machine shop provided a number of services ranging from casting of segment and spur gears to metal parts needed in outfitting horse wagons in addition to building wooden waterwheels.
Around 1850, while running the Hanover factory, Samuel Fitz took over the Tuscarora Iron Works from Daniel Kennedy who had died at a young age. By this time wooden waterwheels were being made with metal hubs and axles. Some all-metal waterwheels were also being made in England and finding their way to the United States. The advantage of having an "All-Metal Waterwheel" was better machinery efficiency performance and simpler maintenance. Metal waterwheels also allowed the milling of products longer into the winter because the wheels would not freeze up. The performance increase was due to a curvilinear bucket (rounded shape). This type bucket reduced the turbulence of the water entering the bucket cavity, it also held the water longer in the buckets increasing the time duration of wheel cycle and had less water spillage. John Fitz (the son of Samuel) made his mark by being able to set up his machine shop to fabricate these metal water wheels using mass production processes. He had developed a standard metal bucket for a full range of wheel sizes, defined side panels to fixed sizes and an onsite assembly procedure that allowed most owners to assemble their new wheels with little assistance from a technician traveling in for site assembly. In looking at his machine shop work orders, even the total count and sizes of the rivets needed were detailed for each waterwheel order.
The Hanover factory and the Tuscarora Iron Works merged to form the I-X-L Water Wheel Company. Fitz had bought the name IXL from a turbine company he acquired around 1870 - 1880. If you look at it you see the phrase "I excel". By the late 1800's the company was in full production of a full line of sizes of the world famous I-X-L Steel Overshot Water Wheel. In addition, the company continued to manufacture and restore all types of waterwheels. Fitz even manufactured wooden wheels for those clients who were committed to this type of wheel. The company continued to grow and on July 15, 1902 the company changed its name to the Fitz Water Wheel Company of Hanover, PA.
Fitz was a master when it came to marketing his products. He would produce and widely distribute his bulletins where he would present pictures of his waterwheels in many different locations doing a full assortment of jobs. He would go on page after page with countless letters of praise by their owners on how their new water wheel was the greatest investment they had made to their company. In almost all his advertising, you would see many pages describing why metal waterwheel was far superior to wooden wheels.
One of the main reasons for the success of the Fitz Water Wheel Company was not in its advertising but in the product itself. The first Fitz wooden wheels had a power efficiency of around 70%. Not bad for the time. With the introduction of the I-X-L Overshot Waterwheel, Fitz claimed over 90% efficiency. Fitz made sure he told the world about his great efficiency rating after a 136 page report was conducted in 1898 by the University of Wisconsin, Engineering School, and was posted to the public in 1913. By the late 1920's the Fitz Water Wheel Company was the largest vertical waterwheel manufacturer in the world. Unlike turbines that lost their effectiveness with a small shift of water pressure, vertical waterwheels would continue to run in a low water volume situation. This made them ideal for factories and farms where water tables would vary widely during the year and product production was needed all year.
Fitz not one to miss all avenues of profit, understood what situations in the field a turbine was the better product to use. I say this because most of his advertisement presented a negative picture of turbines in general. Back in 1860's he started to market the Burnham Turbine. Fitz later improved on that design and called it the Fitz-Burnham Turbine. By the 1930's the company had a full line of turbines like the "Fitz Michell Hydraulic Turbine", the Ruralite and the "Fitz Hanover Turbine".
As the 1930's passed and steam, diesel and gas engines took over the market place for power generation, Fitz continued to stay in business selling his wheels in the United States. By this time a good percentage of his business was in wheel restoration. He had also opened up the hydro market to sales in South American and in Europe.
Despite fewer new waterwheel sales, the company continued in business through the 1940's by utilizing the machine tools it had to produce waterwheels, into making other machine parts. This can be seen by the number of orders placed by the air force in machine parts needed for aircraft. It also ventured in making portable turbine generators used during World War II.
The company went out of business in 1965. By this time it was being run by the third generation Fitz. Much of the technical drawings and patterns were sold to the Leffel turbine company. Leffel, a leader in the turbine business at the time, did this to destroy them so another company could not buy them to re-manufacturer Fitz parts and people needing to buy a turbine would have to buy Leffel Turbines instead. A lot of the office documents and correspondence of the Fitz Company can be researched at the Hagley Museum in Wilmington, DE.
To guess at a total number of wheels Fitz made is almost impossible. It would be safe to say over a few thousand just in the upper southeast of the US would be a good starting number. Chances are, when you run across a metal water wheel it will be a Fitz wheel. Fitz however, was not the only manufacturer of metal waterwheels. Campbell and Savage Water Wheel Company were two companies that shared a small percentage of metal waterwheels in this country. It is interesting to note that Campbell before starting his company worked for the Fitz Company for awhile.
In 1984 a research hobbyist, R.L. Omland wrote a series of four articles for the Society for the Preservation of Old Mills on the Fitz waterwheel and the mathematics behind the wheel. Some of his statements he made are represented here:
Because most Fitz wheels have a standard bucket design you can figure that for every 1 ft of width of the bucket you will be able to handle 2.7 cfs of water.
The number of buckets on a waterwheel is relative to the circumference of the wheel in feet, and that the spacing for buckets should be about 1 foot apart. One can use the following in determining the number of buckets (n) in a wheel. (n) = Pi * (D)iameter of the wheel. Once you know (n) you can determine the spacing (s) by using s = (pi*D)/n.
The velocity of the water entering the water wheel should be about twice that of the rotation of the wheel.
HorsePower at the shaft of a waterwheel can be determined by knowing the (D)iameter of the wheel, (Q)uanity of water in cfs [Cubic Feet/Second] by a constant of .1135 times the efficiency of the waterwheel. So HP = .1135 *Q*D*Eff

     Samuel Fitz was born on 3 November 1849 at Hanover, York Co., PA, per headstone inscription. He is listed as age 4 on the 1850 census, suggesting his birth date was closer to 1846.1 He was the son of Samuel Fitz and Elizabeth Kitzmiller. Samuel Fitz died on 26 September 1866 at York Co., PA, at age 16. He was buried in September 1866 at Mount Olivet Cemetery, Hanover, York Co., PA, Findagrave #19253567.
Note: ENLISTED WITH CO G 74TH PA INFANTRY FEBRUARY 1865 DURING THE CIVIL WAR. LEFT SERVICE AUGUST 1865.

per Jeff Schneider, (Findagrave.com):

The 1850 US Census shows Samuel living with his parents, Samuel Fitz and Elizabeth Kitzmiller, in Heidelberg Township, York County, PA with siblings Jacob, Frederick, John, and Susan Beard. He is listed as 4 years old, suggesting that he may have actually been born in 1846.

A young Civil War veteran, he claimed to be 18 when he enlisted on 15 Feb 1865. He was mustered into service on 22 Feb 1865 in Harrisburg, PA as a Private in Company G, 74th Regiment, PA Infantry Volunteers and was discharged 29 Aug 1865.

The muster-out roll of Captain William J Bart doesn't indicate that Samuel received or returned the Springfield rifled musket and accoutrements that most in his unit received. He wasn't assigned before his unit left for the field and he then was turned over to the paymaster by Lt W G Arnold.
