I think you should. Would be a great trip for you and William. We might could even walk a nearby battlefield together, the blue and gray. Hey, I don't hold grudges forever ;)

Cabin Fever is in April. Hardly the winter.
Gettysburg is only 40 minutes from Cabin Fever in York, PA and I'm a pretty fair battlefield guide and purveyor of useless (and some interesting) facts about the battle.
Let's do it.
Best,
Stan

Road Trip -5

Machine Porn

The show was very well attended for a small show. I'm guessing about 20 exhibitors, one of my favorite vendors (New England Brass and Tool) and a bake sale from the local high school. Exceptional brownies!!

I'm just going to dump all of the machine porn on you.

Finally had a face-to-face with Chris (Vascon2196) from HMEM . It's great putting a face to a name.







































A fascinating talk by Bill McCarthy about his, absolutely perfect, replicas of Civil War Merrill Carbines. The tooling that he's made and the castings are first-rate.

Bill's rifle then the original











That's all. Going out to dinner. Single malt and a large NY Strip.
Great trip!






Best,
Stan

Yeah, that old machine is still capable of some great work, bet that Bridgeport will still get it too! :lolb:

I'm very jealous right now, too far for me to go to these.  Makes me want to start a show down here in the SEC.

reddrryder on YouTube recently uploaded a long movie from the show, with many of these engines running:
