Antique Machinery

On Sunday we ventured out to Clarendon in the Haweksbury area for a day presented by Sydney Antique Machinery Club Inc. This was a two day display by many groups far and wide who brought their trucks, cars, tractors, steam engines, chains saws, even a couple of buses and motor bikes. A great day out for the whole family entry was very reasonable at $7 across the board entry. Well laid out easy access to see almost eveyrthing some of the trucks were parked a little to close for a wheelchair to fit between.
This day had everything for myself to see Sue enjoys the machines.

Timber being cut using a belt driven saw the green table tilts towards the blade and cross cuts they were cutting up old fence plalings and fire wood. On the back of the green truck they were splitting the logs length wise.

Steam boiler being loaded.
