Video I took at the National, It is fairly long but I thought it was better than splitting it over several parts . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm4VVgobMOo&t=174s

Great to see almost every engine driving an appliance.

Here is the first run of my 1931 McDonald P type engine. It was acquired at the Bookham auction late October 2016. It is a very early type with "austerity" head (an attempt to save expensive bronze but not successful), and it has the early style McDonald made lubricator with twin plungers, before they adopted the Manzel tin box type. It came on its original McDonald transporter - very rare.
It needs a good run to clear all the excess oil from many start attempts! See it at: https://youtu.be/Xc3QSK_5W5k

A bit of chaff cutting action.

Didn't have much time to film as I was working fairly hard to get it all done. Was cutting old cornstalks and a bit of hay for a treat for the cattle.

Hello all
Some may remember way back in the beginning of 2017 where I was doing some work on a little Wolseley Alma for the local museum.
Well for one reason or another I had done didly squat to the poor old girl until about 2 months ago (don't ask why) when all hell broke loose on her repairs. I think she's now up to the stage where another coat of acrylic paint can be applied.
They were surprised at how she runs. They all thought she was a hit/miss engine.

Cheers Scott

Just a quick little clip of some engines that were running as a display for the car clubs annual around the garages event.

Hello all
I always enjoy the steam stuff.
What a selection of pumps in that video. Well done yet again Nathan.

Cheers Scott
PS: I wonder what someone would say about the Honda?

I know a few people that complain about the said Honda. That display along with the other displays that had lots of pumps and things attached were put together by the late Roly Feast. He likes to make interesting working displays and would use any engine to drive them as long as they were easy starting so towards the end he tended to use Honda's. The Honda's make the display easy to look after and very reliable.

Here is a bit more of a close up feature of the Model steam engines that were in the previous video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEa5Hl-HfWA

A bit like the good old 'wrong colour' or 'they weren't painted in that paint' syndrome. When they do complain, simply tell them to bring something else to run the display......and run it.
Personally I think it is a great display.

First start of a mates Lamp start Hornsby in 50+ years. Still needs some work and bolting down so it can run on the governor.

It would appear at times that I am hijacking this thread and turning it into the Nathan Woodruff's Youtube Channel promotional thread but I am not trying to do that on purpose as I do enjoying see the videos other post from time to time of there engines and I hope that other take interest in the things I film as well.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kq8vIrMODp0
Here is another recent video of mine this time of a mighty Victa lawnmower. After years of neglect and being left outside in the elements it was surprisingly easy to get running. It had great compression, great spark after a quick and easy clean of the points (I was initially fearful that the flywheel would not come off but it did very easily) and a quick carby clean away it went. It must be hard to kill a Victa. The toughest challenge was freeing up the seized wind up starter but that was not to hard.
Regards,
Nathan

Hello Nathan,
I enjoy looking at your videos, my Hornsby is 4HP and looks similar to the one above being started. It came from my Uncles farm, my Cousin who would have been eighty nine this year had never seen it running.
I had it going for a couple of hours in 2011 for it's hundredth birthday, as in your video it tends to start running backwards.
David.
