Pretty much packed up. Leaving Wed early AM. Thurs at The Henry Ford.
Pix to follow.


Stan!  Take a look at Henry Ford's engine from highland park. It looks to me like a tandem snow. I think one side is steam and the other is gasoline. I think the snow drawings could be modified to replicate that engine. Just need to add the fancy covers.

I am loading today, on the road tomorrow morning. Its only 15 hours, but being an old man now, and retired, I take it in two days. Hope to spend the night near Rochester NY, then into Wyandote Thursday afternoon.

I will plug my seminar- scheduled for Saturday at 10:30- Adventured in Home Shop CNC. I will have the new lathe conversion to show.

Stan , You have to make it a point to Visit Greenfield Village , one thing you can do is to make a brass candle stick(birthday cake candle ) on the Brown and Sharpe turret lathe that's in the Armington and Simms machine shop .Other points of interest are the Round house , Edison's work shops and the model t's .
Steve the Gas Steam engine in the museum burns producer gas on one side and the other side is Steam, producer gas was waste from the blast furnaces .
I plan on leaving on Friday for the show .Jeff

Exhibitor tables filling up, looks to be a great weekend weather wise.  Vendors were busy loading their tables with their wares. Looks to be a great week end. If you can come on up to the show.

Thanks for all those Stan, some good engines there. If possible would you be able to take a closer photo of the Allman vertical engine as that looks to be running hot tube ignition rather than spark plug.

PS I hope that is something engineering related you are all watching on the laptop ;)
