Trying something on YouTube

Posted on July 22nd, 2017 under , . Posted by

Babbling and painting…I got the inspiration from fellow wargamers, and thought “heck, that looks like a cool way to share some thoughts”.While I`m not dabbling (yet?) in the live stream thing, nor planning to make it a regular, fixed moment series, I…

TSA Clubnight 21st of July 2017

Even on our national holiday, the tabletop generals assembled in the clubhouse for another evening of frantic gaming.And it must be said, for the first time since I came back, fantasy and sci-fi had a clear overhand on the historical department.Though …

Creed

The seventh movie in the Rocky franchise, and the first good one in years for sure.This movie is a sort of “handing over the torch” story, and has some great character arcs and outcome.Adonis Johnson is the illegimate son of the late Apollo Creed, Rock…

Quite a bit on the plate this week, as I`m about to round out my Age of Sigmar force of 1.000 points, and will be fielding it for the first time in two weeks.While that will be part of a multi-player, which is the easiest way to pick up the rules, that…

Hochland Handgunners

Coming from the box I traded at the club last friday, I added some firepower to my small Order force.I touched up the models to fit my Hochland main part of the force, and went for a small unit without command group, as I don`t expect them to be around…

Coffeemill Exposition Mortsel

Posted on July 20th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

In Mortsel, near Antwerp, a rather unique collection is on display until coming saturday, the 22nd of july.


Located in an empty store, the private collection of Rene Vanhove, together with a few pieces of fellow collectors, is displayed for all those loving the black gold.

The Dutch introduction, sourced from UitInVlaanderen, reads as follows:

Oude koffiemolens krijgen bij René Vanhove uit Hove een tweede leven. Hij herstelt ze allemaal eigenhandig en in hun oorspronkelijke staat.
Zes jaar geleden kreeg hij zijn eerste koffiemolen, die van de bomma. Nu heeft hij er een 130-tal staan. Handmatige molens, geen elektrische. Zijn grote trots zijn de twee Brusselse toonbankkoffiemolens van J. Van Cauteren uit 1850. Ook geliefd zijn de ‘boerenvlaamse’ molens en de koffiemolens van Peugeot uit Frankrijk of hangkoffiemolens uit België -Nederland en Duitsland.
“Ik vind het prettig om in alle rust iets te kunnen opbouwen, om vergane glorie te herstellen. Je kan geen brute kracht gebruiken voor koffiemolens, je moet heel geduldig zijn, opbouwend werken en vooral er de tijd voor nemen.”
Ondertussen is hij ook lid van de internationale club van koffiemolenverzamelaars ( AICMC) waarbij slechts een paar Belgen toegelaten zijn.
René stelt zijn opmerkelijke collectie tentoon in Mortsel. De tentoonstelling wordt aangevuld met enkele zeldzame exemplaren van bevriende verzamelaars.

Now, the exposition isn`t a huge museum or something, but it is a nice stroll through the past of the venerable coffee mill, from the old hand models to the first efforts at electrifying the machines.

Personally, I adored this collection of wall hanging mills, a lot of them gorgeously decorated.

It also has some serious oddities, like this italian one where someone did their own “handyman job” on powering it.

If you are in the neighbourhood, make sure to drop by this lovely little exposition for a trip through the history of grinding your coffeebeans!

It`s open between 14 and 18 hrs, and the entrance is totally free.
