Pictures from the N.A.M.E.S. show .........
« on: April 29, 2019, 02:19:23 PM »
Here's a few pictures from the show. Good crowd of visitors on Saturday, maybe more than last year. Sundays are typically slower. Weather was chilly, but dry. Miserable trip up from Ohio in the down pouring ran, but dry when we got to the show. Had a great time !  :cartwheel:

Art with his engines.



Gary and Tim at there table.



Had the privilege of sitting with George Britnell again this year and had a great time again ! Picture of the engines I displayed.



George's engines and display ......  My Boss and Georgie's son in the back ground. Conspiring something  ;D





Amazing craftsmanship !






Thanks for the visit !

Hello Brian,

Wow and thank you for sharing the photos. I sure would like to make a show like that, it must be mind boggling.

Have a great day,
Thomas

1960 miles for my round trip. As always, the hardest part is Monday afternoon, getting close to home but still driving. Going out is easy as you have the excitement of the show to look forward to, home sometimes has the anticipation of the new model to start, but this year I did not buy any new casting kits  or plans, and only one little tool, a sharpening jig for #41-#60 drills.

Now I am home, had a good nights sleep and ready to get back to work in the shop, and start getting the boat ready for summer.

I have the flyer for 2020 up on my file cabinet to look at for the next 11  months.

It  would be about 2050 miles for me round trip. But I do plan on making it in the near future.

Hello, thanks for sharing the photos with us. I particularly like the auto style engines in the sixth photo.
Are you able to tell me a little more about some of them. They look interesting and a bit of a challenge.
Thanks

Thanks for the additional pictures Tim. BTW, does anyone know of a source for Maytag castings?

I think the guy with the Maytag posts on HMEM and casts them himself, not sure if they are just for him or if he sells kits.
