Went to a nice small local show in Pittsburg, Kansas, held June 21-22, 2013. I was reminded that it is great to go see the big shows across the country, but like a line I sort of borrowed from one of my favorite movies, sometimes you don’t need to look any further than your own back yard. (My version from the Wizard of Oz!) 

Butter Churns 
For a smaller show they offered quite a variety of things to see! 

Old Car 

Ball Bearing Mover(2) 
Engineered by Loren Erwin. How could anyone have the patience to make this!? It’s awesome! 

Ball Bearing Mover 
Here’s a large ball bearing mover. Now, if you ever wanted to move some ball bearings, this is the way to do it! 

This is a cool trailer/display. The owner, Jamie Gull, can take his engines down the road protected from the elements, then with a small motor he can raise the frame up, and the flaps out. Voila! Instant display for spectators to walk around and enjoy his collection! Ingenuity at its finest!
