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.

And to top it off, all the remanats of castor on your hands which made it to your digestive system, did what they do best ;-)

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.
