I was there yesterday myself,as stated there was no shortage of talent to be seen. I enjoyed chatting with the blacksmith a pretty crafty guy. They also had someone burning out the center of a log to make a canoe, something I had never seen done. Definitely time well spent taking it all in.

I did see the pumpkins I can only imagine the effort that goes into growing one of them.

Jim this was the Hopkinton state fair. I believe it is in the town of Contocook,Nh. Really is a good fair, would recommend it to anyone.

I wish we had a state fair like that. I went to the NY State Fair last week and just about all the ag. & 4H displays have disappeared. It seemed like it has turned into nothing but food vendors, rides, games, & vendors selling junk. Plus everyone is staring at their smartphone. >:(

Peter, did you happen to notice if that was a new fair record or a state record?

I'm thinking you're right. The only reason I say this is there is a guy in town here that once held the state record (it may still stand not sure). The next time I go by his house I'll check out the sign at the end of his driveway he has hanging that says what the weight was.

Peter, I did check out the mills they draw me in like a moth to a flame :D. I thought they looked decently built, kinda struck me as a component machine which would probably keep parts cost down when the time came.
My 5 year old son was fairly impressed with the truck. Took me a bit to explain to him why I couldn't drive it  :).

Peter, did you end up getting the information you were looking for on your shingle mill? I went to the Deerfield fair on Sunday, they had a chase mill up and running while I was there. It was part of an antique tractor club. They seemed like good guys to talk to. I have the name of the club if it would help.

I suppose you are going to be talking to Mr Greene? His wife works in the old kitchen. He's a custodian at the school. He takes the week off and plays with all the old stuff.

 

 

Have fun.
