Tuckahoe Steam & Gas Association (Easton MD) will be opening our 4000 sq. ft. lineshaft powered machine tool museum for the first time at the annual show July 10-13. Pictures of the construction at http://www.tuckahoesteam.org/NewBuilding.html. We currently have about 20 machines on display ranging in age from about 1890 to around 1920. Several will be under power.

The show also includes exhibits of gas and steam engines, farm equipment, antique tractors, horse and tractor pulls, blacksmths, music, flea market, auction, 3 operating sawmills, crafts and food. Admission is $6.

The museum is a work-in-progress; we'll be adding machines and exhibits for several years to come. If anyone has ideas for informational displays or exhibits that you would find particularly interesting, feel free to contact me.

I looked at the show schedule but it's not that clear what's happening when.
Can you just go on a Saturday and see some demonstrations and do some
flea market shopping? Or is flea market only on the opening day?

Thanks
