Default Hot Air Engine Expo at Coolspring June 2017

Another historic Coolspring show is right around the corner!! Make sure you mark your calendar for the 2017 Exposition & Flea Market - Thursday, Friday, and Saturday June 15, 16, and 17. Featured in this once in a life time event will be Hot Air Engines of all types. This may be one of the largest groups of sterling type engines (and models) ever assembled. So, if you have a hot air engine or model, bring it, or if you are just interested and want to see a fantastic array of these unique engines, plan on attending.

I hope you have made plans to attend the Coolspring event coming up. There is always a lot of interesting iron that shows up and the museum buildings have wonderful things to see.

Here are a few photos from previous years to give you an idea of what is typically represented....

Thanks for looking,

For those of you interested in early engine history and the people behind the business, comes an interesting book on the life of Jakob Schleichers life. The Author Erik Varon Chronicled his immigration here the USA and start-up of the Schleicher Schumm & Co Gas engine factory under the guidance of Gasmotorenfabrik Deutz. It continues on after his retirement from the engine business and tells of the rise and fall of a lucrative confectionery company in Philadelphia and many of his personal stories. Several copies of these will be available at the Coolspring Power Museum Gift shop (hopefully by show time).
