Midlands Model Engineering Show 2018
« on: September 29, 2018, 08:01:56 AM »
The next big UK model engineering show is only a few weeks away the Midlands Model Engineer show. I was just wondering if anyone else was planning on going and if we could meet up for a coffee  :)

Like last year I am planning to go on the Thursday to pick up some Alyn Foundry castings from Andy (Chipmaster)  :pinkelephant: I know a couple of our members are having a display table at the show but I will let the Mike's tell you about what they are taking.

I will be picking up my ticket this coming week as they are cheaper if you book in advance and even cheaper if you buy in bulk via a club  ;)

I might go but will decide the day before depending on what work I have on and the weather.

That means I will pay full price for my ticket rather than blag a freebee, can't complain about the loss of shows if you don't support them by paying for entry. ;)

blag a freebee  :o

This is my Xmas present and fuel compensation for picking up some flywheels - full discounted priced was paid to the show organisers for my ticket (but not by me  :mischief: )

Mike Tull, Harry Williams and myself are sharing a stand at the Midlands show. we should have 10 engines on display.

I am taking 7 engines, Harry will have a Gnome and a Anzani Y type and Mike is taking his brilliant Bristol Jupiter.

I'm hoping to be there everyday and Mike is hoping to be there Friday and Saturday.

     See you there.

If anyone is going to the show on Thursday I am planning to go to the canteen area for a coffee about 11:30. I'll try to remember to wear my IC engine Builders Group Badge - Please come and say hello  :)


Cakes and castings might be needed  :thinking:

Normally I bring along the cakes to the shows ::)

No castings. 

I already have my orders in for new castings  :naughty: and someone is hoping to relieve me of an existing set   :noidea:

Jo

P.S. DVD-R discs can also be used for normal file storage e.g. model engine drawing back ups
