Photo Benner's Fall Flywheel Get Together 2012

Travis & Terri Benner hosted a fall get together this past Saturday Oct 6th. The featured engines this year were gearless engines with several McVicker's, Weber engines plus a lot of other brand geared engines. There was plenty of interesting things to see, great people to chat with, plus many good engines. Hat's off to the great host Travis and Terri we all had a great time, a over the top meal and good day to play with engines just a few of the pic's of the day. Enjoy Gary

Big thanks to Gary for starting this thread and for posting pictures of our Fall Flywheel get-together. We had a great time and enjoyed the chilly day.

There actually were 5 McVicker engines and other gearless engines here for the day, so here we go....

Now this is very interesting. Don Pettey's brough his McVicker that was buried for around 45 years before it was found when a tiling machine hit it.

All of the brass had to be completely remade but the brass tag is original. Don had it running nice and slow.









Now, here are some pictures showing the state of the engine as Don purchased it. You absolutely cannot appreciate exactly how bad it was when Don began his work. These pictures don't do it justice.

It's is an Empire, which is a very interesting small gearless engine.

This is a Lauson DeLaval engine owned by a young collector. This is his first engine and he brought it to his first show with us last Saturday. Good job John!
