Re: Smithsonian : America in Color: Coming to America

the video is geoblocked :evil: :evil: It is a shame. I was guessing that would probably happen. :/ Sorry. In 1992 at the age of 10 I spent 8months living in Europe(6 in Hungary, and 2 in Austria, Tyrol). Near the end of the trip my Dad bought some Hungarian films so we could take them back to US. H...

Smithsonian : America in Color: Coming to America

The Smithsonian has been working to colorify some of the first moving picture film to tell the story of immigration across the Atlantic to the United States. This is a 45min full episode, and within the first couple of minutes you see steam ships and steam tugs around Ellise Island and New York! In ...

Re: SBA Small Ads in decline

(that one is wrong side of the pond. ;) ) That's alright, if you care enough there are ways to get our toy boats across the Atlantic. I got an engine made by John Winn in the UK to The US by temporarily becoming a UPS Shipper and returning a package to the shipper! :lol: I now am a dual citizen of ...

Re: Depth Sounders?

Nyitra has a pretty shallow draft, at Point Chautauqua I have pushed that envelope with the her birth (There were already 5 boats on our dock that we share with two other familes). It's also rocky on the bottom on our side of our lake.. So with Nyitra I go into her shallow birth waters expecting a p...

Re: Nyitra I

To prevent further involuntary stack contributions to Lake Chautauqua a new SS 5ft (2ft taller then previous) smoke stack and modifications to the bonnet were completed. My first time with weld nuts. I like them a lot, however I'm guessing because of the rough environment this maybe a permanent mati...

Auction Score

I've been to a few estate auctions and the machine tools are very interesting because many people have no idea what the stuff is... This saturday I went to one and I spent $130 in total, and if you bought the stuff new, it could be thousands of dollars easily. No one was putting in a start bid, so I...

Your attention to detail from concept to implementation is amazing.

I see what you mean about the balance, this engine is impressive aesthetically, technically, and functionally.

How to indoctrinate children into the steam hobby

I believe Hollywood has been and will continue to be a great way to get children interested in steam technology. Back to the Future III which came out in 1990 when I was 8 years old, was one of the primary things that got me interested in steam. They travel in time to back to 1885. The Delorean time...
