    Wobblers are back in 2013!

    Jerry Swedberg is putting on another class for our youth to build the wobbler air engines in our Model Engine Building, immediate West of the Administration Building.

    It is a great opportunity to get our youth (ages 10-17) involved in the hobby and teach them valuable skills. They will safely learn how to perform some basic machining skills such as using a drill press and similar tools under the supervision of experienced Members of WMSTR. There is no cost for this event, but you must sign up early to get involved! The event is about 2-3 hours, taking place Friday and Saturday morning of our show at 9am. When completed, the attendees will get to take home their own 'wobbler' air powered 'engine' There have been over 260 engines built at our show, and the interest has spread from our show, thru Wisconsin and out to the East Coast. If you are interested, please contact Jerry Swedberg (rollagee@rrt.net) to sign-up. You may also call 218-937-5404 instead.
