Wanted - What I'm looking for at the 2017 Trade Fair

Postby 61Hawk » Sun Apr 02, 2017 10:46 am

I thought I'd start this thread, it looks like you had one in 2015... feel free to add to it if you have something you're looking for.

This will be my first trade fair so I'm hoping for a lot of old mint condition windmills and parts at giveaway prices... same as I did at the Studebaker swap meets. But the vendors seemed to always to want to at least cover their travel expenses... and the guys who did this for a living whined about being able to pay bills and needing to eat.

Wish List:
- Aermotor tail vane for a X602 (have one now but want one that's clean... no bullet holes and decent original lettering)
- mast pipe for an Aermotor A702
- would like to find two twisted wire braces for a Stover tower, can't remember the length... they're the bottom set for a 20' tower. (Have talked to Ivan Block about this already.)
- lower sections for an early Aermotor rounded corner tower. I have the stub tower and top section, would like one or more of the lower sections to make it a 20 or 30 foot tower.
- decent well pump to display under a windmill
- will be on the lookout for a nice windmill to drag home. Have an Aermotor, A402, X602 and A702. Wouldn't mind adding to the Aermotor collection but wouldn't pass on anything else that I can get parts for such as a Dempster. I like open gear models best, but probably need to get some more common mills under my belt to get more familiar with them.

I'm sure I'll be adding to this list as we get closer to heading out the door.

Thanks,

Lee

I have a two hole hand Corn Sheller ( rare ) made by Sandwich if interested. A strong wind blew it over and the wood frame all came apart. It had a $250 value. Will sell it for $100. Dave..

Re: Wanted - Star 12 parts

Postby Mister ED » Sun Jun 04, 2017 8:39 am

Will be picking up a couple of 8' Star 12s from Ivan and know that neither has upper or lower vane castings. So I am in need of at least a set of those and potentially other Star 12 parts ... but won't know until I get the mills (sheet metal I have).
Thanks,
Ed

Adam -
Garrett Balsick sent me a message on FB to pass on to you:
"Hey Ed I was wondering if you could message Dave Straub and aermotor fan and let them know I have the parts they listed on the vintage windmill website that they need. I will get them to them at the trade fair. I appreciate it."
Thanks,
Ed
