Guys, after our thanksgiving dinner today we sat down and spent a couple hours dropping a bunch of old glass slides in the projector. All of them are of the Racine tractor works, many of them showing foundry work and making crank shafts. Took a picture of the old factory sign which is one of a few in color. One showed a guy testing rods with a Rockwell tester, and the calender was dated July 1940. Someday I want to take them all in and get prints made.third party image

That would be an interesting set of slides. I found a cheaper alternative to reformat 35 mm slides - I bought a small slide scanner at a local Staples (stationery chain store), for about $70. I scanned about 2,000 slides my dad had taken over the years and they turned out real good. It uses the same memory card as a digital camera so you can download them to your computer and print them, whatever. I priced out having a local camera shop do them and the price was way more than I could afford. It took a little time but was a good way to use up some cold winter days.

We thought we should place it up front so it could be read by anyone interested in putting old iron to work. [Editor] I tried something new today, and it worked so well I thought I should post it - in case it might help someone else. I'm running 100 yards of 4" drain pipe from the gutter downspouts of our house to a pond down the hill. This should hel ... [Read Article]
