    Posted: 28 Sep 2009 at 10:13pm
I attended the Autumn Malvern show held over the weekend at the Three Counties Showground in the foot of the Malvern Hills sharing part of the Club Stand.
 
Here are a couple of photos of the display I put on.  Apart from two sprayers on show there all the rest were Made in Birmingham.
 
 
and another one from later in the day when the sun came round.
 
 
The sprayers on the right are from the rear a Four Oaks Conqueror, then a Four Oaks Wizard, then the row in front from the left, an Eclipse Leader, a Four Oaks Farmer, a Four Oaks later knapsack, and a Benton & Stone Hyject - this one I use regularly in the garden as the handle is a nice convenient height and it has a pleasant foot operated action.
 
In case anyone is curious - the image of the building on the left hand post of the gazebo is a picture of the Four Oaks Spraying Machine Company works taken around 1970.
 
Cheers

I'll bring a few of my sprayers aswell.
They're only the bicycle pump type and a Mysto sprayer
with bowl / pump. It'll add another four or so to the
display I guess.

I've got a couple here that are surplus to requirements - I'll try and bring them on Saturday, and you can fight over them.......

There is also a 110V Tarpen hedgetrimmer, if anybody is interested.

Let's hope they are small and easily hid !

If either you or your partner are adept at stichery or seamistry then another method that I have used previously is to find a shirt with a collar that would look good without it, buy it and when you get it home unpick the collar from the rest of the shirt, stich up the remains of the collar - then Bob's your uncle and Roberta is his alter ego ..

You can still buy collarless shirts,new,their proper name are Oxford Shirts,One place that you can get them is a good old fashioned out door clothing shop.
I notice Mr Sprayerman was in the special enclosure for mobile caravan owners only,this is where the Head Cowboy gets them to drive in a big circle to wait for the Indian's to attack!

Though I missed it when I appeared out of the van - the wife said that the look on the HC's face when he saw me was one of complete surprise..
 
I couldn't sew to start with but nearly all of the smaller sprayers, syringes and small pneumatics  have cloth storage bags made for them. I got the wife to give me basic instructions so I could do it myself. I found that the old hand towel rolls that are often seen at various shows are best. For syringes cut off  a length slightly longer than the sprayer then fold across lengthways and stich up one short end and the long side then turn inside out so the seam is inside. It saves them from getting knocked about when stored or transporting them around.

JP - Unfortunately that Sunday is a work day at the Mill as we will be open the following Sunday & I will also need to start preparing for the Canwell Show that takes place on Sat 7th.  Shame.  Thanks for mentioning it though.

Cheers

So will we, should be a good show. Sometimes worth leaving some space in the vehicle/ trailer for the journey up as it is the traders last big show of the year & they are often keen to sell as much as they can, keen prices too, so the spare space may be useful for return journey.
