Cool Time of Harvest show at Rough and Tumble today 10-12-19

Last show of the year today. Plenty of stuff happening and managed to get some pics and a few videos.

Since I volunteer at Rough and Tumble and explain the 1913 Cooper pumping engine, I can get a lot closer to the moving parts than the visitors. I held the camera a lot closer to moving parts than I would ever put my head.


Also got video of a 1-1/2 hp New Holland hit and miss engine. One of the selling features of this engine was a "freeze proof" water hopper. The taper would allow the ice to expand up instead of out which would break the cooling hopper.


I just missed this Rumley Oil Pull tractor being started but got the warm up and it driving off


1st pic are three hot air water pumping engines. The middle and right are running. We only run the big one when it's cool out as it throws off a ton of heat. It also takes three good sized folks to get it turned over to run.

2nd pic is the hot air engines and Roger's 1893 17 HP Otto engine

3rd is my 1900ish Olds engine

4th is the oldest running atmospheric engine in the Americas and 3rd oldest in the world. It's an Otto and Langen built in 1867/68 Behind it is a Crossley based on Otto's patent

5th 40 hp Fairbanks Morse

6th 125 hp Miller

7th Klein oil field engine

8th Fairbanks Morse vertical & 1-1/2 hp New Holland

9th Fairbanks Morse

10th 1-1/2 hp New Holland

First 3 pics are the 485 hp Cooper pumping engine. It displaces close to 45,000 cubic inches of displacement and has over 11,000 lbs of torque.

4th and 5th are the Mann diesel engine. One of the earliest diesels made and it's still running quite well.

6th and 7th are the 40 hp Reeves twin

8th is the Star engine

Last two are the williamsport engine.

First three are a Myrick engine

Next is a 1930 Hart Parr tractor. This is the last year Hart Parr was in existence as Oliver took them over.

Steam tractor in the foreground is from 1886 and behind it is a Baker

Some more steam traction engines.

Notice the youngster running the steam tractor. He's been coming out to Rough and Tumble for about 6 years. This is the first year the family has "set him loose" on the steam tractor and that kid handles that big tractor quite well. ( he took the steam engine school at R&T and knows what to do and what to watch for )

Here's Justin putting the Edison generator in his truck to take down to VA. He's going to restore R&T's Edison generator to use with his 1903 Fairbanks Morse engine that he has on display.

next to last is a casting he'll be machining
Last pic is his Fairbank Morse

Since you're on the other side of the country, I would suggest the Threshersman Reunion which will be August 12th thru the 15th 2020

Thanks for the info. I get a little taste of this stuff right here when they have the annual Pear Festival and there is a display of about a dozen or so small running farm engines and a few tractors. The tractors also get decorated and are used in the lighted Christmas parade every year. Just enough to make me have an interest is seeing more, and of course to see some of the big stuff.
