Pictures from Buckley, MI Old Engine Show August 2001

I went to the Buckley Old Engine Show on Saturday August 18th 2001. Great weather until about 1 PM when it started to rain and it rained and rained and thundered and lightninged. I left about 3 PM.

A different note. Water cooled stationary engine - the cooling being with a grid the water ran down. I forget what this engine was, but maybe it's a Famous IH? Someone's load of stationary engines - about half of them running.

A rope braid making machine. One would get very dizzy watching the shuttles (or maybe they're bobbins) for too long!!!! 1/3 size Case baler, amidst the confusion of camper vans. 1 1/2 HP McCormick Deering engine.

1910 IH "Famous" engine. Somebody sawing wood. I can't help but feel that the blades must have been really blunt - I've seen two men with a really sharp two man saw cut through logs as fast as someone with a chainsaw. This rig was not up to that speed by a large amount!! The bowl making machine. This machine was fed a length of 8 x 2 inch timber and using two large cutters made wooden bowls in about a minute. One cutter dug out the "top" of the bowl, and then another cutter shaped the base, and nearly removed it from the stock.

A reverse view of the line up of "Big Boys". A line up of 3 John Deere powered icecream trailers. Each trailer has an engine is powering 2 icecream makers. Large quantities of ice were used. The end product was for sale at the table behind. Getting ready to remove another batch of icecream. It was $2.50 a scoop, so I didn't bother.

Prepping a log ready to start cutting it. Gee that's a blade!!!! Feeding a log into the blade. The engine governor opens some, but it just chugs a bit harder. A few people checking out the business workings of the Avery 120 hp engine.
