It wasn't as good as I had been led to believe, my problem not yours.
As for the stuff on offer, the common everyday engines were expensive for the condition they were in, or at least the Wolseley's etc that I saw were.
The rarer and more obscure I wouldn't comment on, not what I was looking for.

Anyone get any photo's of what was on offer ?
Sounds like a great day, I can't see why anyone would complain about such a joyous gathering of like minded fella's in one place, to wheel and deal in cast iron and other precious metals!! :)

I think the weather probably prevented anyone taking photographs John! It cleared up later on, but many people were heading off by then. By the time I left just before 12, it was looking quite empty.

Phill.

Did seem to be thinning somewhat earlier than usual despite the weather clearing. I think everyone was pretty soggy by that point and had probably done what they came for so not too much enthusiasm for hanging around nattering.

These are the only pics I took http://www.stationary-engine.net/for...ad.php?t=44930

Finally home from Buckinghamshire. Enjoyed the visit to Oakley but as already noted by others I got soaked with the rain and it wasn't a good time to natter. I should have asked you Danpt about progress with your Crossley BV's because I must do my JPVD sometime but the shaft driving the mag doesn't turn and it is probably the same set up as the fuel pump drive on yours.
I too saw the Hamworthy set but didn't know whose it was.
What did I get - no engines this time but antique tools for my farm collection and a nice compressor from Martin.
There was a Teles engine with the same brass carb as mine so I got pictures of the throttle linkage which is missing. Its rather more complicated than I thought.

Is that why they're not described as a "barn find" then?

It did! Can't argue with the description though - "very very rusty but original".
