harrogate show
« on: May 08, 2015, 08:43:33 PM »
just got back from the harrogate show. Quite packed - it was difficult to get to some of the vendors tables at times, but did get to pick up some nice bargains, so a lot poorer but definitely  none wiser!
I didn't take photos -  but here's the few I did manage

Horizontal marine engine

nice paddle engine

falcots table engine - wonder if I can machine that flywheel on me trusty peatol  :ROFL:

galloways non dead centre (I think?)

I particularly liked this

and more stuff - this was just a small selection of what there was to see. A very good show indeed

I like that :-)   

I'm now wondering if one of my surplus jigsaws could be re-purposed ....

Even from those few pictures I looks like there was plenty of eye candy at the show. Anyone else take any pictures at the show?

Thanks for the Gallaway link I am about half way though a build

They have a hypnotic motion

My aim is for a accurate part with a good finish

Thanks for sharing, Peter. I may have to add that to my show circuit. ;D
