Re: Odd (not slot related) flyer

I also see it's mounted backwards so the power take off is where the propeller was. I seem to recall originally there was gearbox at that end, so I guess a reduction box if needed would be easy to install. I've watched two vids on it now, one from a few years back and another nearer 20 years ago. An...

Re: Mills Hi Top Projects

If retaining that surface is your goal and you haven't access to a decent paint stripper (don't buy brands like Nitromors since EU made them change the ingredients). Try searching YouTube for home made paint strippers. You'll find some involving brake fluid and Maynards Wine Gums or some such. You d...

From the sound of it, he achieves a slow enough tick over to be able to engage drive at standstill by knocking one bank out. You'd only need to kill one magneto.

Re: Jennings Governor... Price?

Finding a good plater is not straight forward. The ones involved in car and motorbike restoration tend to know what they're doing and their reputations are hard earned (advertising in glossy vintage car magazines ain't cheap) Be blunt when talking to them, ask them if they want the job. Some of them...
