Old Engines On Display At Lewis County Fair
The Lewis County Fair sputtered into its second day Wednesday.
Sputtered on purpose, that is.
On display was a collection of what's called hit-and-miss engines, owned by 90 year old Jack Killam of Sandy Creek.
They're called "hit-and-miss" because they fire only sporadically.
In an earlier era, they were the workhorses of the family farm.
"Anything you needed belt power for," Killam said.
"You built what you needed," said exhibitor James Hill, "you made it yourself."
"That is the whole goal of here at the fair with this exhibit," Hill said.
Kids at the fair were fascinated by the old technology.
