When people come here, they see the scale of the thing and they’re in absolute awe. How could that possibly be? How could anyone create all of this? ”3 Visitors walking or driving into the park amid piles of Delaney’s surplus scattered in orderly confusion find their eyes drawn to the Forevertron, which rises up among the salvage and cottonwoods, drawing the viewer in with its surprising order—it’s more than one eyeful. 01 (001-072) chapters 1-4 2/26/08 12:08 PM Page 33 The Forevertron The Forevertron from the east 33 JIM WILDEMAN The Forevertron lies along a nearly north/south axis (north is to the right in the photo on page 35) with the egg-shaped travel chamber and thrusters standing over four stories high in the center and two somewhat shorter towers at the north and south ends of its 108-foot length.
Tom acquired a submarine engine and a ship’s propeller to install on the floor, and copper tanks and vats came from his salvage work around the state. The tanks from a malted milk factory in Racine are three-eights-inch-thick copper imported from England, heavy enough to be used in a vacuum process. Tom says that there are thousands of pounds of copper in the building. Brew kettles from the Kingsbury Brewery, tanks from the People’s Brewery in Oshkosh, motors from the Gisholt Company in Madison, all of it saved from the scrap heap and part of this fantasy work.
Tom directed the difficult installation, and when they were finished it was all inspected and approved by consulting engineers hired by Alex. Tom is very proud of his work there. As was usual then, they did the work first and overengineered everything— then they got permits. The floor of the room is a terraced hillside—the idea was that visitors could get their food from the Epicurean grill, sit at tables that Tom designed, and enjoy the sounds of the theater organ while they ate. There were daily deliveries of organ parts for the grand organ, brew kettles from defunct breweries, odds and ends of businesses that were updating or selling out.
