Just in case you haven't heard by now, Coolspring Power Museum will be featuring hot air engines for the first time in the history of its annual Exposition & Flea Market. The show is June 15-17, 2017 in Coolspring, PA near the small town of Brookville, PA. Many seldom-seen hot air engines will be on exhibit and there will be a Thursday evening program on the history of the Rider-Ericsson Engine Co. In addition, the museum's publication Bores & Strokes 2017 edition will be the first detailed account of Rider-Ericsson's history, tracing it from it's roots in 1842 to its end in 1939. The book will be available at the show and to members of the Coolspring Power Museum. We hope to see you there.

I got an email from someone in Germany that they're talking about the new 2017 Bores and Strokes on Smokstak. I am going to email him back. Apparently his impression is that he can order it. But this is not available for mail order. It's only available with membership to the museum or at the gift shop on the grounds. It won't be available for mail order until 2018 when the next Bores and Strokes comes out. That's how the Bores and Strokes works each year.

Thanks,
Gail

Not sure what happened to my previous post under "Shows & Swap Meets" above, but here it is again for anyone who missed the video. We had a great Stirling Engine Expo last week which was the 2017 feature at the Coolspring show with about 200 working hot air engines exhibited including many early engines and rarities. My apologies to the many I missed in these clips but was too busy with my own engines to get around to filming everything. Check out also other videos of the show by Gil Garceau and Woody Sins.
