Looks like a beautiful day and great show. I missed not be able to go to the show near me this May. The power saw is awesome stuff. Thanks for the pics. Makes me feel like I was there.

To comment on the last photo of the tweels, I wanted to add that they work really well on zero turns. My employer demoed a John Deere zero turn and I was amazed how well it hugged the hills. Very expensive at the time to buy.

Thanks, I was also in awe of the Hit & Miss powered saw .   There were a lot of H & M engines powering the standard mills and pumps, and rotary firewood saws. This was the first reciprocating saw I have seen.

 

First I have seen these all plastic wheels....I believe this was on a Wright Zero turn.

I did wonder how much the height of cut was affected by the change in the bottom spoke bending due to changes in torque and weight change on slopes.

The hit n miss powered saw is very cool.  Bet it was fun to see it run.

 

One of the last things I did before retiring was to work up a tooling quote for the steel centers used in those non-pneumatic wheels.  I don't know if the company got the business or not.

It did cut very well John, but it was a two man operation.   One to release the blade and to catch it when it cut through.    The other guy engaged and disengaged the recip from the H & M engine.     There was also a chain binder  strapping the log to the saw frame that required some time and manpower to reposition the log.

Good question. I don't know if its enough to matter or not. They surprisingly went well through water logged sod near a catch basin. On the subject of antique power shows. I happened to go past the location where the May show mentioned earlier was having antique farm tractor pulls. Stopped for about 1/2 hour to check out some tractors and talk to some drivers. Thanks again for sharing pics.

It was a good show Jim.    Great weather for a change.    I lot of interesting Hit & Miss engines with a good display of implements.   The Wheel Horse was represented well with the @ericj and Charlie Culley herds.

 

BTY, thanks Eric for the help getting my rig hooked up last night.

 

Also a shout out to @SPINJIM.   I did see you on Friday Jim.    Sorry I didn't get to say Hi.

 

I kept one eye looking for @roadapples.       I certainly understand your reluctance to attend a show Jay.  As you can see, social distancing was not the greatest.    Hope you are feeling fell.

Good show and great weather this year.   I didn't stay long because no one was wearing masks, and I can't afford to take a chance.   Sorry we didn't get a chance to chat.  Looking forward to next year and better circumstances.

   Jim
