ORDNANCE AND FIREARMS / Slowly Catching up to Smitty...
« Last post by lewis505 on December 17, 2017, 11:57:07 AM »
I finally acquired one of the "gems" that Smitty has in his collection - "the Pig"

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Picked it up on Friday from fellow reenactor F. Brian Mead of Hardscrabble Farm

http://www.hardscrabblefarm.com/

Dummy M60 was made some years ago by Joe Scheaffer in Atlanta - bipod legs work & feed tray opens; all metal construction & about as close as you're gonna get without owning a real one

Came w/ Spare barrel & spare barrel bag, bandoleer & 100rd dummy belt - Smitty, I'm catching up!

AATW!

Locking Gate is safer that original Static Line Snap Hook; no need for a safety pin & spring opening latch locks the connector to static line

Scott,

Love it!  Can't wait to see it finished.  Truly hope to get out your way at some point to visit the Museum.  As I've mentioned before what you have done in under 4 years is just short of a miracle.

MISC ITEMS / Our WWI Ambulance nearly complete
« Last post by ScottG on December 14, 2017, 10:33:38 PM »
  We have been restoring a 1917 Ford Model T Touring Car into a 1917 "Tin Lizzie" or "Flivver" Ambulance for the WWI Centennial. We currently have 3 identified ambulance groups in the museum and as many of you are aware, Ernest Hemingway also had deep ties to Michigan. So, I thought I would share some of the progress.
  The engine has been completely restored but is original to the car. The radiator has been re-cored but is also original. The wood wheels are the originals and were sent to an Amish wheelwright for restoration and tightening. The axles, brakes, linkage, and transfer case are all re-built from the originals except for the brake pads. All that is left is the seat/fuel tank, steering column, canvas, and paint. We expect completion around the end of Jan-mid Feb. Just in time for the 1918-2018 remembrances here in the States! What do you all think? Its been a great and reasonably priced project!   Scott
