Of course!  Our tables got moved to the front end of the center row in the same (middle) building.  This is about 15 feet closer to the fron than we have been the last 5 or 6 years ó right inside the doors so hope we donít have any of the early May sideways rain that Mansfield is famous for!

Svedra asked "Anyone have a specific item they are looking for?"

I am hoping for the winning Lotto ticket so I can buy everything I want.  :)

Happy hunting Carl.

Good turnout.  Great show as always.  Some great displays here.  Super job by forumite Ken Knoll with his Best-of-Show winning Skates gun and projectiles.  Our own Welhunter, emike, Steve Phillips, and others have assisted Ken with some great research on a largely unknown gun and foundry.

Fun time as always with lots of friends.  I picked up some things including this watercap fuse in a big bushing.  Turns out it is the exact piece shown in Chuck Jones' book on the bottom half of page 15.
