Today I’m back from the old engine show at Buckley, Mi. It runs Thursday thru Sunday and the amount of old steam and diesel engines and tractors is unbelievable and they all work!!! I got hooked an getting a Hit and Miss engine. If anyone has one around 2 hp, I’d be interested. I want to make a generator out of it and use in conjunction with solar panels to power my barn. They also have a huge Flea market that has a lot of good old tools along with the usual Chinese stuff but now so much of it.
They have a working saw mill, veneer mill, thrashing machine, shake shingle cutting machines, a bowl cutting machine and a blacksmith shop that will brand a shingle for you. In the blacksmith shop they were casting aluminum bells and taking orders for them and they can be personalized with your names cast into them.
THAT’S ALL FOLKS
