i'm pleased that somebody else also puts up plenty of information with their display, many a good display is otherwise spoilt by lack of display boards so the public often has no idea what it was for etc.
If it isnt orange it isnt a rotavator

I'm a firm believer in the use of display boards, you could have a really unusual exhibit but with no information to Joe Public it only warrants a casual glance as they wander through the display area.

I always find that if you give the public something to read on the exhibit, be it a log sheet, photos or period sales advert, they will look at the exhibit, read the information and then look at the exhibit again.

People watching, its fascinating sometimes...

Ill second that, I always put out a display board. I put mine on the ground so they have to bend down to read it, the hotter the weather the more fascinating it gets

As I said somewhere else on the forum the idea of showing is to keep the public entertained during the day and socialise with friends in the evening. However there is nothing wrong with certain members of the public keeping us exhibitors entertained during the day.

you know looking at that first photo, I might have a power plane that looks like that- i dont even know if it works or not- its at my mother in laws house, I'll try and get some photos sometime - might also have another tool with it- I got the two together and never could get them to work.

I think the other is a circular saw, but cant really remember, the shape of the plane and handle arrangement was what sparked a memory.
