I think that boxer is a Wall Wizard. You got drawings for it? I had thought I had some but have not found them yet. Sure they will surface some time.

The V-8 petite is a home design. Something like a design-as-you-go kind of thing. The case has been hollowed out and the crank bearings are made of bronze. Just another one that perhaps will not be take any further by yours truly... :embarassed:

Hi Bill.

Yes those unfinished projects most certainly will take a while to complete - and I'm a little short on the "a while" bit.

And there may be some more stuff hidden away in the mothballs (does any one know of rust preventing mothballs?  :D)

What do you think of the "appropriately marked box?" It contains all the messed up bits and parts machined with an indelicate or too heavy hand - I am sure if we all do not have a container somewhere with those bits we have not experienced true hobbying!  :hammerbash:

I believe that it is called oil in certain parts of the world.  ;)
