  • OT: Southeast Old Threshers Reunion

    Is any one going to the Southeast Old Threshers Reunion in Denton NC June 30 - July 4. If so maybe we could arrange to meet and have a Diet Pepsi or something.

    Educate me a bit. What are Threshers? (old or otherwise)

    Hmmm, I seem to remember a farm term dealing with threshing. Is that it?

          I guess that's what evolved into combining huh?

          Sounds like an interesting get-together. I always enjoy the 'Antique Tractor and Machinery Show' that makes the weekend circuit here in the Tennessee Valley in late summer and fall. But I looked Denton up on the map and that's a bit too far to travel for me.

            I was around a thresher run by a steam engine back in 71, was 10pm and you could still feel the heat from that bugger at 100 yards...would have hated to have to work around one them in 100آ° heat of summer

                Jaymo, to my knowledge I have no relatives in or around Selma. I am from Tenn. originally and did live in Huntsville, Al in the 1970's.

                    Are you in Selma Jaymo?
                    I was stationed at Craig AFB (1973-77). One of my favorite assignments.

                    Now I'm in Huntsville. (Double coincidence??)

                      Jimmy, amazing coincidence. I also have Foos, Hercules, and FM engines and Gilbert & Barker, Bennett, Frye, and Erie visible and Clock Faced Gas Pumps. Enjoyed your web site.

                        Jimmy,
                        I thought that Foos looked familiar. Nice article in GEM on the Foos. Congrats on a job well done.

                          Thanks, it was a lot of fun seeing it run for the first time.

                            also as a reminder for any of you guys in or near Oregon, the great Oregon steam up is the last weekend in July, just outside of Salem.. among other things they have a steam powered saw mill, lots of gas antique engines/tractors.. a vintage " tractor pull" a truck museum, with what is clamed to be the lathe that alot of the prototype work for the cummins diesel was turned on and more! was lots of fun last year

                              I usually try to attend the steam up at Brooks. This year I will be attending a steam boat meet at Wheeler the third week end in Auguest and probably will not drive north twice in one month.
