New Hampshire Power of the Past Collectors Dunstable Show
6 May 2012
Slide show HERE and video HERE
I headed out the door from my home in Preston, CT at 6:45 AM with Dunstable, my goal. I know that this show is one of those where, if you don't get there early you might be wandering around a mostly empty field so getting an early start was important. The drive was very pleasant and I arrived around 9:30. In my next life I am going to live closer to where most of the shows seem to be!
I am not sure exactly why but the Dunstable show is one of my very favorites and I try not to miss it.
It was a beautiful day with some cloud and some sun which made for a comfortable atmosphere to walk the field and chat with exhibitors and friends.
NEMES president Dick Boucher. Dick has recently lost about 40 pounds. Way to go!!!
These gadgets are hog oilers. The fellow who was showing them told me they are not well known in the north but are (or were) much popular down south.
This is one big a**ed dog!
Jim Paquette has to travel to one day shows by himself now. His long time companion, Edgar, the world famous doughnut hound, is getting too far along in years to negotiate getting in and out of the truck. I know that I missed him at this show and I am sure that many others did also.
The device to this woman's right is a hand carding machine. There is just no telling what one will see at a show.
This is the engine one of my raffle tickets is going to win for me.
Never saw one like this before. The wheels are mounted on a non driven axle and the spur gear is mounted on the end of a driven axle and drive wheels by means of the ring gear mounted to the rim. Very neat!
Not positive that these labels are incorrect order L to R
This is a spoke straightener. Not sure for what (spokes of course) but for what sort of wheels
If you see your exhibit or machine and would care to drop me a line or two, or even a paragraph, about it I will be delighted to add your comments to this page.
