We had a quick trip to the show on Saturday, had a chat with Len Gillings and admired his little Stuart vertical diesel genny set that he bought ex Brian Sharp collection. Very nicely turned out as usual with Len, and the generator side had a decvent panel and load.
Nothing jumped out at us in the engine line up, and not a lot in the trader stalls either. One guy had a very good selection of tools and machine tooling but spoilt it by asking almost full retail prices for everything, so while a lot looked, most kept their wallets closed.
Admission £5 each this year, facilities, food, toilets etc were good but it is missing that ingredient that makes you want to go back another day, which we used to when it was cheaper to get in and more decent tools / odds and sods stalls were there.
No2 son and his mate tried the beer tent Saturday night, and reported a very busy and happy venue.
