Steam show day

It was the last day of the Elnora Indiana steam show today.  They have a huge flea market, an antique tractor section, an antique car section, a working machine shop, a working wood shop, a pioneer village and lots and lots more. Very entertaining. I first heard about it last year. It is now an annual trip for me.

Here is a small section of their antiques on display. They go on around the room all the way to the ceiling. Another room has an old train layout, quite massive.

                      This is an antique horizontal saw, with a grinder in the immediate background.

                                        Here is the drill press. They had it running for display.

Here we have the drive for the whole metal and wood shop. I don't think OSHA would approve of the belt set up:)

                                  Here is the a front view for the grinder and horizontal mill

                                        This is the largest of the lathes they had on display.

                                                   Here is the small lathe running.

                                                   Here is the vertical wood band saw.

Here is the wood working side of the building. It operates off of the same motor that drives the steel shop. They are turning rolling pins at present. Last year, I got to see them make baseball bats.

They had a tractor parade. That was cool. They had about anything you could imagine from all eras. lots of great things to see and eat. Definitely be back next year. Next weekend is a huge gun auction. I probably will have to work, but I really hope not. Around 400 guns up on the block. A couple of broom handles are there. Machine gun shoot is still a few weeks down the line. I have a vacations set, so it is a for sure this year.
