B. A. B. perforator progress: the motor roars!

Lots of progress from the week of January 20th, 2017. We banished more grime, and even started the motor! It leapt to life instantly, with a low growl, and refused any notion of untoward pitching. In a couple seconds it snapped into “overdrive” and continued with a low hum.

Everyone is now even more eager to continue and finish the work on the perforator chassis and the other motor board inhabitants. Stay tuned.


The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum is proud to announce an award of $1000 from Give 4 Greatness for general operating.  Give 4 Greatness is a cooperative program of Arts Services Initiative and Give For Greatness to provide support for smaller cultural organizations in the Buffalo-Niagara region.  Funds are raised by the Give For Greatness board, consisting mainly of attorneys in Buffalo, then distributed in the fall of each year. The museum will use these funds to support its special events., especially the performances.
