I agree the Mansfield show is an excellent show and has been each year I have gone there. This year a James bolt that wanted to come home with me to be with some of his cousins in my collection.  :)

Congrats on becoming a homeowner and getting more than a receipt for rent each month for the money you spend for housing. The show was good and I am sure you will figure out a way to go in the future, even if with more limited funds for buying. Remember however, you can now claim to your spouse/significant other you are buying to decorate the house, not just for a hobby.  :)
Thanks.  I've been there a few times before and picked up some good things over the years, including this ball that Carl might recognize.

Wow, now that's a "Top Shelf" James. Congrats.

Jon, you are such a braggart!  After you snaked me out of that mint James bolt, I sat in the corner of the Hartz Building pouting for a few minutes (ok, maybe a little longer).  But the James Fairy must've seen me and felt sorry for poor little me having been betrayed by one of my besties.  So, she dropped this 3.8" James tie ring bolt in my lap, unfortunately not in time to give it to Carl for a good cleaning.

 :P

Nice...I guess pouting does pay off.  :)

No it doesn't, I pout all the time, it usually ends with me sleeping on the couch.

I've never seen a tie ring bolt.  Super cool find.  Congrats.  Hope I get to clean it!
Best,
Carl

I thought I'd post some pics of Dave Gotters Award Winning Display at the Mansfield show. For anyone who hasn't seen it, it is amazing.

It is an incredible display and worth any long drive to see it if you like artillery.  it is jaw dropping.  Many thanks to Dave for all the work in designing the display, doing all the work to bring it to a show, set it up and take it down.  Not to mention the  cost of tables.  Thank you.
Best,
Carl
