For not being a collector as such, I do seem to have a few spare engines around. I bought some cheap display boxes at Hobby Lobby, stained them, and put on a coat or two of tongue oil. They make nice places to keep your engines when not in use. I keep mine in a corner cabinet that has a glass door. I have had a few rare engines that I traded off for something I might run. I have had a Bunch diesel, a Viking twin, and a Skychief 53. I picked up an Orwick 64 a few years ago off of ebay pretty reasonable, and it is a very good runner.

You need one of these Jim. I just picked up 14 of them. Hi-Torque 13 x 6 props in mahogany (I think). They make nice display props. I'd be willing to part with 4 of them for just an PM with address if interested. First come,first served.When the 4 are gone,that's it.

Gluehand,

Of all the sparkers I've got the Forster .29s are my favorite. They start and run so easy no matter what fuel I put in 'em. Not barn burners but not slouches either. Just good running fun engines that I think everyone should have at least one.

Check out this sweetie I just traded for, Its a late model O&R .60 that's never been run. Not even mounted, check out the mounting lugs. The box and instructions are obviously reproductions but I'll take it! It also came with a coil,condenser,spark lead set new in the package.

Here is another treasure I have just aquired, never been run or fueled. In fact I was the first to install a prop on this one.
1947 OK twin 120 This is one beautifully made ignition engine and I'm putting it under my pillow tonight......I don't care what she says.
