A day at the fair
« on: September 02, 2013, 09:39:53 AM »
Lancaster fair was nice
I found something to cut with on my wood lots
 

  

 

and to move my logs too :D
 

  

 

then do the fire wood. might take all 4 hrs to cut my wood for the year.

 

  

  

  

 

Back in the day In NH . When someone was lost we gave them the horn :D
From the 50s to the mid 70s it was used

 

 
Air horn I bet it was loud :D

At the Hopkinton fair was nice too.
Can you imagine riding this all day

 

 

 How it was done back it the day. One piston

 

  

 

And we have biguns too :D

 

  

 


And the cowgirls are fast too

 

  

 

all en all a good weekend. now back to the mill and cut and cut :D

I sure do enjoy looking at equipment,new or old,I like them all. We use to go to about 10-12 Fairs here in Maine. We enjoy going. Some of the Fairs hard to see it all in one day. We would sit and watch the goat,cattle judging,the ox and horse pulls,listen to music,go through the exhibition halls.look at the old,new stuff,eat fries. We would get there just about when the fair opens and try to leave around 5 before the night people came and get crowded.
I use to go with my Father. It was nice to hear him tell me about the old stuff and how to use it.He use to say,I'm more tired going to a fair than cutting wood all day.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoy going to the fair, seeing friends, the exhibits and just do some people watching. I somehow missed it this year, but think of the money I saved.

That's some serious equipment! 

Are there any other fairs coming up in NH?

Yes. The Woodsman's day is Monday. There are special vendors that day and I always go early and get a year's supply of saw chains etc.
I'm too short to see most of the events but I walk around a couple of times and go to the Forestry building where there are wood related items for sale and check out the equipment row.
There's been fewer bandsaws the last couple of years but there's some woodsplitters and log handleing stuff. Also some large harvesting stuff and trucks.

Nice to see what was at your fair for some of the heavy equipment.  I/we have not made it to a fair for over 45 years as they seem to have lost the appeal to sacrifice the time required.

Lots of folks from the Southern states.   ;D  I went with a few friends. One guy knew a "shortcut". I always go a certain way and don't get the tracffic. Coming in from the North. Somehow he missed the turn and we ended up coming in from the South. Yep,we was stuck there and than some.  :o  Took him a few years to live down his shortcut.

At the tonbrige fair things looked good
 
I like the old one lunger and my color. ;D

 

 
Making ice cream.




Back in the day this how you made pipe

 

 

And It was easy to tell what part of the country I'm in. :D :D ;D ;


 

 




Was some men doing it the hard way. But they went right along, tools as sharp as a Wood Mizer blade :D

 

 

My wife Ann like the loom

 

 

This guy was making a chain out of one piece of wood

 

 

And the fine gentlemen from Wood Mizer


 

  

  

  

 

And they won the blue   :D :D 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)


A good day

Wish we had fairs like that around here.  Ours are mostly carnival with a little 4H thrown in.
