OWAT Fixed compression 5cc Diesel.

It is rather big and very cool.............cool enough to get it to run one day.

Ahhh, moved, very good, I tried myself but no. Was about to suggest.

Never seen a flurry of Red Admin ever last night.......fascinating.

OK, stands are sorted for at the very least the larger of the Old Things.

Mounted two things to sort out what they would look like.

I am getting Taplins ready for a "Line Up"....... :P

Smaller version later.

PS: C is feeling the heat poor luv and just staying inside looking decidedly "Floppy". 25 inside and 40 something outside.......will not last though.

I visited a craft shop and grabbed some of the most unlikely MDF "Shapes"of all possible sizes.

Some standoffs and fasteners from my IT box..........

This was the one of the MDF, number zero.

I will clean it up and be............."Crafty" so that it compliments the Wee Enya.

Perth does not have the style of standoffs that I would like so on to the Bay. Longer, Male - Female, round, hex, and polycarbonates.

Thanks S

Doonside looks very smart. I think I will continue with this concept for others.

I do like the "O"s, my only cause for concern would be, if a book falls on one or the cat knocks one off the shelf, that there would be a possibility that the crankcase could loose the end of it's mounting bracket.

Perhaps you should call this a Four Candles stand.
Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Hay Keith,
Have you got the entire set of build plans or just that page? Looks very interesting.

Is it better to over think, than not think at all?
