The Bolt Tool Museum , 1650 Broderick Street, Oroville, Ca. 95965, is pleased to announce that Rod Hisken will make a presentation on Vintage Tractors. Mr. Hisken is a skilled public presenter and has filled
the room for several years with his entertaining and informative style.
These lectures help to keep the Museum in operation and his he is appreciated.
Rare John Deere's and Fabulous Fords have been past efforts and this year the focus will be Farmin' with Farmalls. Several red tractor collectors from Northern California have been invited to show their restored gems and will be on display for the public. Their owners will be present to answer questions and share knowledge about the restoration processes.
Mr. Hisken will bring the famous Osumi tractor. This tractor was restored by a young man who graduated from the Wheatland High School Farm Mechanic Program . It was purchased by David Osumi in 1948 from the newly founded Valley Truck and Tractor when they began as an International dealer. It is believed that the tractor was sold by Henry Miller to David . This was the first tractor that David bought for his tomato farming business after he returned from internment with his family. Everything was gone! His hard work and focus is a testament of the belief to moving on in this great country of ours. Yes, we have made mistakes ,but there is still no other place in the world like the United States.
You may have driven past the Museum for years without stopping and going in to view the famous collection and research that Mr. Bud Bolt has achieved . It is indeed a marvel to explore and you will wonder why you didn't come sooner. People from all over the world have come and visited. Their appreciation has generated numerous tools from several continents.
Hope to see you at the Bolt Tool Museum on August 17 at 10:00 AM
