Default Thermoils at Coolspring

Got back from Coolspring today. Wednesday was gooey; Thursday was cloudy but decent; yesterday was gorgeous; today, after five hours of heavy rain overnight, the grounds looked like a ten-acre rice paddy. But it’s all good. I got to meet some of the people that frequent this site. That was cool. I was a little disappointed I didn’t get to hang out and chat much; perhaps another time. There were sixteen ‘Thermoils’. I think that is the most ever assembled in one place other than the factory. Relying on my tiny little kerosene-fried brain, the list was:

three 2 ˝ hp T’s
two 5 hp T’s
one 7 hp T
two 1 ˝ hp U’s
one 3 hp U
two 6 hp U’s
one 7 hp UA
one 8 hp U
two 9 hp UA’s (well, maybe one; Tim’s stuck-between 8/9 U/UA is included in that)
one 12 hp Renfrew twin

Pretty awesome!!! We got Keith Kinney’s 5 hp T up and running after some miscellaneous adjustments. That in itself made it all worthwhile.
Keith’s presentation on the history of Herculese was well worth the time with some good questions afterwards. Keith and Isaac, nice job!! We appreciate your efforts. Thanks to all who brought their engines out. It was really cool and I hope we can do it again sometime……….when the ground’s a little firmer.
