Wanted Ken Willard's Book

Post  Marleysky on Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:03 pm

Ran across a post by our SMALL event promoter, Tony. On another forum. Just wondering if anyone has a copy of this book they'd like to share?  




The 48 page book is called 8 Easy Projects for 1/2A Engines by Ken Willard, published in 1985. You can find them on eBay from time to time. Amazon lists the book for $108 to $255....seriously!

That'll be another book for me to keep my eyes open for. Amazon prices can be a joke at times.

I bought my copy about 30 years ago. Every few years when I go through my old magazines, I see it and I read through it and say, "Hmmm... I need to build that."

Much more reasonable,  had I only known about this book 2 weeks ago, and was watching for it!

Mark- that's probably what I'd do to. Off on a tangent from some post on another forum of the Astro Flyer, and my youthful, unknowing attempts to create a " flying frisbee " I didn't think to put wheels on the outer diameter, it did spin quite nicely, but would not get airborn.

Hey! If I don't have any luck at the world library (open book.org).  Could I borrow your copy? I pay postage both ways!

Thanks Eric! I had checked also. Tried to enter a "wanted" request for this book, need to somehow check then check again that the book is out of print, before entering request, per OZ instructions. I guess I'll have to contact Kalmbach Books in Milwuakee, Wi to verify status of book. Maybe to see if copyright is exists? ....while I got nothin else to do!
lol!
