I'm interested in old stationary engines, and have several. I like to work on them, and I just like to watch and listen to 'em run! These are really fascinating old machines with a character of their own, and are an important and interesting piece of our heritage. I have a bunch of old engine enthusiast friends on the Stationary Engine Mailing List. It's a friendly, family-oriented hobby.
Here are some links to pictures of my engines, shows we've been to, and related stuff:

Ever wonder where those cute little Maytags really come from?
