Re: EDGETA NW Regional show

I'll be there, but only as a spectator. Because of high gasoline prices I'll be driving my wife's commuter car down and will be camping out on the cheap. It's my way of being able to afford to attend events four weekends in a row. :)

At one time Harry Matthews said he'd be there, too. Are you still planning on it, Harry?

Regards,

Orrin

Anyone plan on going to this show? My friend and I will be going from Northern CA and would like to meet any one of you that might be there. We will be leaving Wed morning and staying for the full show. Hope to see some of you there.

Re: EDGETA NW Regional show

While at the Brook, Or swapmeet over the weekend I heard several people talking about the show over in Buhl, Idaho. Buzz Stetler and I will be attending and I know of others that will be there also. Heck I'm going just so I can personally thank Harry for what a GREAT avenue he has provided us with for gathering information and also to give John Ledbetter the raspberries!

We'll be staying at the MR. BIG resort just out of town! Great food, nice comfortable beds, hot showers and a wonderful view of old iron.

Wayne, you are off to a good start, of all the great engines that you and Buzz have, here you come with a John Deere! Maybe if you are nice, Lauren will let you two run some of his nice engines. I'm sure he'll let you crank the 60 hp or maybe one of the larger ones. Have a safe trip and get here a day or so early, so you can help us Old guys get set up :crazy:

Here's a link to an audio file of John Ledbetter's 8HP Novo as recorded on an LG cell phone and converted to a wav file:

Keep watch of this post for other interesting engines recorded at the show.

The photos below are of John next to the Novo sitting in the shade with Louie Bulcher and Art Devisser on set-up day spinning yarns as usual. (Photos taken on the LG cell phone's camera.)

At the end of the day, the club had a meeting and then served up and enjoyed a fine dinner of beef, pork, beans, baked potato, salad, rolls, homemade cake and ice cream. An engine show doesn't get better than this!

This type N engine is started by priming, then turning it into reverse compression and then hitting the firing charge. It is fired by a .410 shotgun shell primer and a short section of black powder sealed with wax. Once the charge lets loose and explodes the fuel mixture, the engine starts and runs in the normal direction.

Movie clip of the 25HP engine running:

You will hear the muffled adjacent 32HP fire twice in the background while this 25 is running. I count twenty eight missed revolutions between hits.

Thank you for posting some great pictures, Harry. I could have left my camera at home. :)

The pictures tell only half the story. The other half is meeting and getting acquainted with the nicest and friendliest people there are. Getting to meet you, Harry, and other Stakers, such as John Ledbetter, Wayne Thackery, and others was the highlight of the trip. Renewing old acquaintances with other Stakers such as Dave Otto, John Merry, Norm and Sandy Hansen and others rounded out the experience.

The folks of EDGE&TA Branch 150 are to be commended for putting on a well organized show. They took care of every detail and didn't leave out a thing. Good job.

I'm button-bustin' proud to have been there. My only regret is not getting a picture of all the Stakers when we were all there at the same time on Saturday. I was surprised at how many of us there were.

Thank you, John, for starting the Harris for me. You did a great job of restoring it to perfect running condition. It fired on the first pull. I was impressed!

Re: Northwest Regional - Buhl, Idaho July 1st to 4th

Just got home last night from the Buhl, Idaho Northwest Regional show and wanted to thank John Ledbetter, Lauren, Holley, Lynn, Lonnie & Larry Langdon, Buzz Stetler, Jim & Jerry Johnson, Ed & Jan Hedge, John & Vickey Merry along with their two kids, Vernon Bethke, Gordon & Bea Morris, Dick Erickson, Louie, Jean (who kept everyone fed with the most outlandish meals you would every want to put in your mouth).......along with many more which I don't seem to remember. This years show was simply outstanding, as was the weather! Lauren put on a show of his own when he arrived with his semi load of large FM N's, along with his son Lonnie driving the 15 ton Grove crane for unloading! Very impressive Lauren!! Also need to thank Harry Mathew's for his contribution in getting the Web-Cam up and running so everyone that could not attend would be able to enjoy as well. Harry you are the glue that keeps us all together! Thanks again Lauren for the many private tours you gave of your collection. Everyone that I talked with was very impressed with your hospitality and willingness to share! I look forward to seeing you all in a couple weeks at the National's in Washington State.
