I don't know how many are watching this site. For sure very few are posting. I see there are a couple new members and I welcome you. I had changed my email but I hope I have it fixed now.
Going on to current events.
The Tri State Thresher Association has selected me to head up an IH feature show at Bird City KS for 2019. The dates will be July 25-27. Everyone I've visited with seems to think it would be a fun road trip. See western Kansas wheat fields. Have fun reuniting with IH COLLECTORS and meet new friends. Bookmark the website. http://threshershow.org and watch for news. I will be having them upload a flyer and motel lists soon. I am going going to treat each exhibitor as my personal guest and will do my very best to make you feel welcome.

The threshershow.org website is updated with the flyer for next year. Click on the picture to download the pdf. You can print copies to post. I have info to hand out at the National Auction in Nov. Maybe I will see some of you there.
I guess I need to start a new thread about what I'm doing. I brought home the show's 10-20 Titan. It had been redone at one point but has not been started or run in many years. I went through the lubricator and got it working. Now I am working on the mixer. The mag clicks and has spark but I think I will still send it off to be redone. At the very least I will clean it up and make sure the bearings have grease. More things are ruined by neglect than negligence. Plan to come to northwest Kansas next summer. I think it will be worth the effort. Lots of history and things to see. Plan 2 weeks if you can. I am doing one thing that I am not sure has ever been done before at a Red Power and that is a Saturday night banquet.
