    Default Kent Connecticut Show

    Just a reminder that The Connecticut Antique Machinery Association Fall Festival is this weekend September 27,28 and 29.
    Usually some rusty treasures to be found for sale and it's always fun to watch the old engines run.

    Was at the spring show. Quite a place and if your anywhere in the area very worth going too. I wish I could be there again. My favorites were probably the antique towable air compressors which were not running and a couple out back not on easy display. Quite the collection for sure. Best to the good folks at Kent. Regards, John.

    Was my second time there. This spring the folks running the food tent were great. I told them it would of been a better show if they had a polka band and a beer tent. It was in a good natured kind of jab. At the end of the day they were getting ready to go had two for one sale and slipped me an "Old Irish Bastard". Thought it tasted terrible but I thought the gesture was total midwestern great. Great show and great people all the way around from members to visitors. Wish I was going to be there. Regards, John.

    I go every year. It made me real proud to see how excited my two-year-old daughter dot when watching the big steam engines turn.

    Other highlights from the show it looks like they got the majority if not all of what used to be at Bergen Tech school. I was talking to one of the guys at the show who said it all showed up a week or so earlier and was a very new addition so next year I suspect they'll have a lot more of it set up and running.

    Other fun new thing to watch was someone set up a fully electronic steam engine indicator that displayed on a computer screen. It was pretty neat to watch however the diagrams didn't look like any of the ones I've seen in the book. They were really jagged and unusual in shape. My suspicion was with the engine running completely unloaded may have had more to do with it than any issues in the valve gear. None the less that was the first time I had seen such a setup done on a real engine in operation.

    By the way another show in the area (maybe 20mins from CAMA) that isn't as well known on Oct 19 Topland Farms is having their annual show. I only found out about it last year. The place is like a Jay Leno's garage of fully restored farm tractors including last year 3 operating steam tractors. No swap meet there like CAMA but equally worth going to.
