Re: 31st NUENEN Show June 8, 9, 10, 2019

Air fare was $1500.00 each. The hotel rooms in Nuenen were $380.00 for 2 persons for 4 days. The Show was $5.00 per person for the whole show. The town of Nuenen is a picture of a quaint small town. Very nice. Food is as ususal. Large flea market and lots of engines for sale. TJ

For those that didn't do this. Click on the address at the bottom of the video screen and you will get his video and a second video of Neunen. In the second video I got a kick out of the machine that turned a 2x2 into a round dowel. Ron

We just returned from our trip to the Netherlands. Tom Dave and I spent two days at the Neunen show. Lots of very good engines to see running, with several powering light plants or pumps. A great place to visit and enjoy engines we seldom see in the USA. This one I felt was outstanding built in 1902. I like upright engines, I wish that I had taken a few notes about it, someone will help with the info.
Enjoy Gary


6 hp patent Emil Capitaine spirit (alcohol) engine by Swiderski, Leipzig. Built for the German and French markets exclusively. By 1905 due to consequent years of bad potato harvests the price of alcohol had risen considerably, the idea of spirit as a domestic liquid fuel had to be dropped and these engines disappeared quickly from the market. Due to a rather complex design this type of engine was somewhat expensive (you could buy a 9 hp E type Deutz Otto for the same money and still have some left) and not a commercial success. Very few (only one other?) survivors. This particular engine was a standby in a windmill in a village by the name of Jerichow in Saxony.
