Guessing that those of you who will be at the NAMES show are in the process of packing and getting your engines ready for the show.  I hope you have as much fun as we all did at CF and will take lots of pictures both of our members and their engines as well as other interesting things at the show!!  Safe travels to everyone, and we'll look forward to hearing from you soon. Have a GREAT weekend!!

Wish you were right. I am working long days so i will find out if my engines work about noon friday.

I will try to wear out the camera and get a few hundred pictures.

You know what they say about "all work and no play" Steve. Hope you get to have a very playful weekend.

I arrived in Wyandotte about 2:00 Thursday afternoon, 892 miles door to door. I am at the Red Roof now, will be headed over to the arena by 9 or so. The setup looks great, lots of tables waiting for displays. Some great seminars this year- Paul Hammler, Jerry Keifer and a couple others. I will not be doing a seminar this year, but I have Mach4 on my laptop and will be happy to demo it.

The above link is a photobucket album with pix from setup day at the NAMES show. Almost everything is self explanitory except this one. Guess what it is.















































































Tire pressure gage for Jerry Kieffer's 1/8 HD motorcycle. He puffed it with a small piece of tube and the stem popped out like a real one with graduation marks that are not visible with the naked eye. That man is not human.

Lots of beautiful models there Steve. The pressure gage is amazing too!!  Of course we will recognize George's work and Lee Hodson's radial display but there is lots of other drool-worthy work there as well and probably more to come tomorrow. Thanks so much for taking these and sharing them!!

Thats not fair. I looked at the photo and had no idea what it was. I used the zoom tool to get a better look. Thought it might be a tire gauge but wasn't sure yet. I followed the link to your photo album and didn't learn any more but lots of nice pictures, thanks. I decided to put both photos under the Zoom lense again and I could make out by comparing one against the other that it was a tire gauge.

Ok. Now I am going to go back to Steves post which is still sitting open and give him the answer hopefully before anybody else. First thing that I discover is there is nothing but blank space below the picture. I keep going down, down, down and finally come to some text but instead of your signature line I find that you have answered your own question. Oh well, I know that I had the right answer without cheating.

Thanks for the photos Steve. It's the next best thing to being there. :)

Cheers  :cheers:
