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.

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.
