This event is held rain or shine. We have plenty of indoor shelter.
Our restored drag saw will be demonstrated, as well as our American #1 sawmill. Both have plenty of logs to be cut. There will be demonstrations throughout the weekend of the sawmill, as well as our other wood handling machinery including an antique planer and a splitter. All this in our consolidated wood handling area at the north end of the exhibit field.
Skip Kern, our lead man in the Blacksmith Shop, plans a full weekend of demonstrations along with a number of other area blacksmiths setting up shop in and near ours.
There has been much cosmetic improvement in our Industrial Hall of Steam. Come see the improved appearance and stay for the live demonstrations of our various antique steam engines. We will be running the Nagle-Corliss engine that saw its operational debut at our 2015 show.
Take a ride on Hawaii Railway #5, a restored 1925 Baldwin narrow gauge locomotive. As always, the ride is free and as always the running of #5 is subject to weather and the will of the machinery gods.
See the now completed addition to the CT Museum of Mining and Mineral Science. John Pawloski and a dedicated team have been hard at work preparing special new exhibits for this substantial addition.
Besides all of CAMA’s permanent exhibits, the grounds will be filled with vendors and outside exhibitors that have brought items to be sold, or shown off.
