Default Ohio Valley Antique Machinery Show

First time user, I just wanted to say the the Show down at Georgetown Oh was a good one, more gas but there was 3 engines. They were a 19 Port Huron, 21-75 Baker and a 80 Case. There lots of people around as the engines were working. They sawed with Port and the Case. Used the Baker to thresh while I was there with my son. Mr Stacy (If forgot his first name) is the owner of the Port and while I was explaining the different parts to my (he's 15 and interested) he told my son to go ahead and blow the whistle for noon. That has made his day and week, for that I am very grateful to Mr Stacy for. I would add a thumb but I am not sure how to.

PC,
You bet... welcome aboard and I hope your experience is a great one. I'd forgotten how little, in my old mind, it took to make a young boy happy. That's great that he had his week made with pulling a whistle!

Hi Ken,

Hey does this paragraph mean you have run my Port Huron (Blaker's 24 that was in the sawmill) or the 24 on rubber (went to Cedar Point) or the 19 (now owned by Bud Hinebeck and reportedly for sale)?

Might you have pictures from that era?

Thanks
Beth

Beth , Sorry for the delay I went up to my High School class reunion Saturday and I had to find the picture my Dad took. I do have t0 make a change in my age it was 14 not 16. This is just a quick scan of the picture. As you will see it is 1972 and was not the one on rubber. Did his 19 have a jacket but I can see it is registered as #3. This may have been the 24 that you have now.

Ken,

Your picture is of the 19 that Bud Heinbeck has. It has the Watson, contractor governor on it. It is a 1921 engine. I think the engine number is 8603 or something close. One of first built in 21. A very nice engine.

I'm not sharp at all with Port Huron engines, but if I can see the crank side of Beths, I look for the crosshead water pump. It's the only one with one, I believe? Of course all of the new pictures with the new jacket... Well that'll be hard to screw up?
