    I've visited with Klinger, on occasion, and I don't think anyone could sleep through his stories. Something else is afoot there.

    Sorry for the delay, but we've been having trouble being able to post pictures. This is a group photo of many of the volunteers that have spent time working on the restoration of the shovel. Just so you know, not everyone is in this photo. This picture was taken during the week prior to the 2013 show. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Not sure if anybody else sees what I'm looking at, but I think this shows an extremely proud Harvey enjoying all the hard work that has been put into this project so far.

    Great to see this thread bumped back up to the top! Great pictures (Jane)? Must have been Jane since Clayton is in the pictures!

    There is a little work left to be done on the shovel this spring and summer to get it ready for the construction expo this year. The exhibit is sure to be right at the top of the highlights for the Expo!

    I did a little fly aroud with my RC camera this week, my flying still needs some work before showtime, but certainly a different view!

    I agree with Mark, that will make for some neat footage during the show. I am sure you would be welcome to fly that around on Saturday of the show when the Minneapolis threshing crew is demonstrating.

    Thanks Mark and Darren. - Yes, weather permitting, it will be airborne. Might make for some interesting spark show footage as well!

    The thing to remember is this equipment is old and no one knows what will happen from day to day. We do are best to treat this equipment with respect, But we all know it will break down from time to time.

    I have other detailed pictures of this beautiful machine. Some are of broken gears and the internal workings prior to rebuild if you are interested. I've got side by sides of the old and new showing a comparison of what was against what is now. If there is interest contact me please.
