Good morning all
Here is finally my Surry Parker, started two months ago, the project is not completely finished, a few more finishes, but I can already see what it looks like. It is a project that I have long wanted to do, it is finally realized. I used the plan of the gazette (June 2003) and the article by Frank Palmer, I hope the latter will not be angry with me. I leave you to your remarks and criticisms.
Thank you for reading me

I'm a little confused.

There was a man called Surry Parker, in North Carolina, who made logging equipment.


You can see a similar logging machine, called a STEAM LOGGING MACHINE



But I don't think the machine itself was called a "Surry Parker"... by the way apparently the man, Surry Parker, founded Pine Town, North Carolina, and there are a lot of historical references to his family.

Thank you all, it gives me great pleasure. Now after doing the few missing details and equipment, I'm going to attack a wind turbine.
