Thanks for the pics the model machine shop it's an outstanding piece of work, I have not seen the angled drilling and boring V8 block machine before apart form being  an excellent model were these machines common in car factories or a one off?

Thanks Stan,
It's almost like being there, from breakfast through the show. How was the attendance, spectator wise?

While it's a "small" show, it was quite busy all day. I actually had more people asking questions and wanting to know about the engines than at CF or NAMES.
Plus, the museum folks were very helpful and make it a great experience. The Fri nite wine and cheese reception for exhibitors is accompanied by a behind the scenes tour of the museum. They have floors of machines, instruments that aren't on public display. One example is the B&S micrometer on a granite base that was used to QC check Jo blocks. It's accurate to .0000005"
Throw in the electric meter from Edison's lab and a Norden bomb sight and it gets interesting.
Best,
Stan

Great video Stan.

It was nice to meet folks from the forum and talk engines.

This was my 4th time at the show but my first time on the Friday museum tour.

When I arrived there was cheese, crackers, and Harpoon Beer! Nice to walk into that after a 3.5 hour drive!

Until next year.

Great job guys, wished I had been there. The whole setting looks suitable for perfect calendar pictures. Wonder if the April show is when everything is in bloom?
