Farm Collector


By Staff

1993 promises to be a banner year for fans of the Rumely and
Advance-Rumely lines. Rumely collectors from around the world will
congregate in Rushville, Indiana for the first annual RUMELY
COLLECTOR’S EXPO. The 1993 host show will be the Pioneer
Engineer’s Club of Indiana in Rushville, Indiana. The show will
be held on August 6, 7, & 8 at the Rush County Conservation
Club, 1 mile East of Rushville on Hwy 44.

The Pioneer Engineer’s Club always has a good turnout of
OilPulls but the goal this year is to bring together the largest
gathering of OilPulls since the Advance-Rumely tractor plant closed
its doors! Steam engines from M. Rumely & Advance Rumely will
also be featured, along with Rumely machinery. Owners of Oilpulls,
GasPulls, IdealPulls, steam engines, threshers, implements, as well
as machines from related companies such as Aultman-Taylor and
Gaar-Scott, are urged to bring them in to swell the ranks and make
this the best gathering of Rumely ever assembled.

A large tent will be available for displays of memorabilia,
where collectors can meet, swap, sell and reminisce. Folks with
Rumely literature, signs, historical materials, photos and the like
are urged to add them to the display cases. Rushville is located
southeast of Indianapolis; the trip will dovetail nicely into a
family vacation! More detailed information is carried in the EXPO
host publication, Rumely Collector’s News. Copies of the
current issue, as well as official EXPO OilPull T-shirts may be
purchased by writing Rumely Collector’s News, c/o Scott
Thompson, 12109 Mennonite Church Rd., Tremont, IL 61568, or calling
Scott at 309-925-3932.

If you plan to bring machines or displays, please write Ron
Miller. 12433 US 6, Geneseo, IL 61254, 309-944-3156, so we will be
able to reserve your space in the Rumely display area.

139 years after Meinrad and John Rumely produced their first
threshing machine, we invite one and all to celebrate the history
of this grand old company. See you in Rushville!
