Thank you George, I'd like to see a photo, sketch, or link to an H&R.

Re the Stanzel unit, I needed it for a long running 3D CAD project. I am drawing a plane in CAD from plans I found in a 1956 magazine. I am trying to stay as close a possible to the specs called out in the original plan.

MCG,

Attached is speed plane plan with H&R torque unit. It is hard to see, but alas that is all I have about them anymore.

These speed planes are works of art. Thank you for the information and the links. I think I found some H&R type monoline torque units near the bottom of this page.

They are art indeed and marvel of mechanical precision, but the real trill is seeing them in action

I have used the "Flying Lines" type that is pictured. Can't remember where I got it any more. Mike (I think)Hazel maybe. I got one of the sidewinder type too at the same time. We used to use a wire that was the same dia. as the flying line and run it out to the wingtip and solder a horn in the centre with the button nearby. I wouldn't use it on anything much bigger than a .15 and do a pull test often.
