Title: Cretors wobbler type
Post by: tinkerer on January 25, 2018, 06:35:51 AM
Does anyone have pictures of the parts or plans of either of the two wobbler type engines Cretors made? I have pictures & a horizontal one available to me (belongs to a friend). But not disassembled. Would like to get my hands on the plans for the larger horizontal slide valve one too. I don't think anyone has made model kits for the wobblers?

Pat Jorgenson was quite into Cretors engines a while ago, have a look through his "forum" for threads like these

Not a bad price for the Myers casting set, though some of their plans are in bad need of updating, though I can't say on this particular engine. Couldn't help but notice that for the vertical they spelled it Creators on their website. The horizontals are correctly shown as Cretors. Probably a case of spell check gone bad :)

Thanks Jason, I knew they made the large horizontal kit. But didn't know they made the oscillator. The Horizontal is a bit pricey for me right now. But I ordered the little vertical one.
