I like to write up my engines in some detail & I always get people stopping to read wot I rit. Quite often, I include a photo to illustrate it, easily done these days with the Internet, digital cameras and MS Word! I did one a few weeks ago about an early autopilot I exhibit & within minutes had a good picture of a Gloster Meteor to put in. Displaying the sign brought a comment from a passer by that he used to test the things and now I have a bit of antique test equipment to go with the autopilot ;o))
I print out the result on 100gsm card and fix to a five foot high stick with drawing pins. This I bang into the ground near the rope line - so much better than a soggy box lid done in felt tip or one of those SEM log sheets that give such minimal information.
Just my opinion, you understand, but I think the lamentable standard of signage at SE events is a true indication of the fact that we only pretend to be there for the public, it's really other engine owners/displayers that we go to see and be seen by - and they already know a Wolseley WD8 when they see one!

"After it, therefore because of it" - which, of course, is rarely wholly true and almost always should be qualified and placed in context. A road is wet after rain, but the surface of a lake is not wetted by the same precipitation.
It is a tongue-in-cheek lateral observation on pedantry, something I stray towards myself only too often!

I like the motto on the side of Lamport Hall (fortunately also in English) "Ostendo non Ostento" - I Show, I sham not. Says a lot about the arrogance of the British gentry.

I dunno - it seems to be a constant, even outside stationary engines.
If you go and see model engineering exhibits, you'll quite often see metalwork that took man-years displayed on a poorly varnished piece of mahogany plywood with a dymo label!
