Perhaps it is messy, but did you ever get an infected cut from starting a stubborn diesel on a cold day?......Never! the ether and castor saw to it that the cut(s) healed perfectly well time and time again.

I see , the ether disinfects and the Castor I suppose is a good cheap hand cream , after all a lot of people drunk it so it must be good , and as I said before one hell of a lot of people drunk ether between the wars


I couldn't put anything else except castor in my engines , I would have to cut my hand off if I did

Well I never thought of that but I too have many a cut from a stubborn or flooded diesel engine in my youth. They healed well didn't they. I'm little longer in the tooth now and have learned a little about operating these engines. I no longer do control line flying as I couldn't handle the dizziness, but R/C assist is being greatly enjoyed and I have a few diesels sitting awaiting models to go into.

Have really enjoyed the forum chats and shared info. I must mention that since I wrote about my little Enya .06 (see posting #1906) I now have a good condition crankcase coming from Sweden - thanks Bosse. Now how else could I have made that connection with the benefits of a site like this. Fantastic.

How much ether could anyone drink before they dropped dead I wonder. Still, its probably no worse than absinthe. Van Gogh supposedly went mad on the stuff.

What a great engine......looks super functional, and obviously made with a healthy portion of humour...like a slightly 'mutated' ED MkIII

See
http://msds.chem.ox.ac.uk/DI/diethyl_ether.html
for the toxicity of ether.

ORL-MAN LDLO 260 mg kg-1
ORL-RAT LD50 1215 mg kg-1

The lethal dose to kill half the test population is
260 mg/kg of body weight for man and
1215mg or 1.2 g/kg of body weight for rats.
