Last week I went to the Dane County Fair with my youngest while the wife and oldest were away doing other things. We had a great time. I always have fun at fairs. The latest and greatest are bogus nerve analysis machines folded into chiropractic sales gimmicks. Nothing like a good scam to get me laughing.
They had this Tilt-A-Whirl in the midway. I walked around the entire machine but could not find a serial number plate.
This model was clearly newer than many I have blogged about in the past.
It had a simple push button operation instead of the manual levers that take a little more skill to operate. You can see how enthused this carnie is.
While this one was more decked out than others I have photographed I find the older, junkier ones are certainly more interesting from a mechanical and historical standpoint.
