Re: Steam at the Hungry Hollow show #2

Lots of good steamed corn made from this little upright.

That would be Gary Hennig and Family's 20 Minnie #8708. The Case Portable belongs to the Club....

Did they ever get a Steam Engine into the Mud Pie and saw any lumber..??? Didn't look too promising on Saturday...

Ken, Sunday they got everything going. They had the Gary's Minneapolis on the saw mill after noon. It was suprising how much things dried out in less than a day! I think the stiff winds helped. By the time we left late sunday afternoon we were kicking up dust again.

Chuck, I didn't get either number. I didn't see a boiler number or any stamps on the boiler. There may be something under the dirt and rust tho. I didn't see an engine number either but couldn't really climb around on it.
I'll try to contact one of the club members and see if I can get some info for you.

Thats Gary's daughter, I believe she spends more time on this machine than he does. I hope to get some time to talk to them at other shows later this summer. Very nice people. And that Minnie makes the best steamed sweet corn in the world :D

That green framed homebuilt machine is a great looking rig. Congrats to the builders.

Thats a John deere frame. They ran a belt from the steam engine A pulley where the origional flywheel would be. I don't know if they are useing the origional crank or s straight shaft to the origional clutch. this way they can still use the clutch and transmission. The boiler weas built in 1971 but I don't remember the company who made it. That rig can move right along and sounds like a small locomotive chugging around the grounds.
