I was going to post this in the Event forum but it’s really off topic.
I was there 20 years ago and have been wanting to go back but never have the time. I just found out that this fathers day weekend is the 30th year celebration AND flame ignition is the main topic. I always wanted a Bisschop…! Well, I’ll have to make one of those day a Coolspring day!! If I knew in advance I’d be camping out for three days…
Looks like you need to load up your riding lawn mower to show people wood gas. Sounds like a great event.
Bill, I would like to but I better scope the place out and maybe take it to the fall show. Wish I had the time…
Here’s a video of a Bisschop. It needed a small amount of tar in the town gas for cylinder lubrication. Or at least that was written in one of my books. Now a days people just use acetylene. Maybe the soot works as a lubricant.
I went to this event in '99. It is well worth the trip. The creativity of old machine designers was AMAZING!!
Never in my life did I think that I would see a Bisschop much less see it run.
It’ll be a long long time before this larger of illumination gas engines show up in one place…
Had to go home early to get the garden fence in better order.
There were 9 Crown engine pumps running at the same time…! They first were used in NY City because of low city water pressure and tall buildings.
