Bank of engine parts Cox and no Cox ( Exchange - Trade - Arrangement )

Post  MauricioB on Wed Nov 08, 2017 8:23 am

Friends, I was thinking that a bank could be made to exchange pieces, sales and exchanges.
It is possible that many fans have spare parts of engines, used or new and that another amateur may need, then they could be published with a sale price or with a proposal of exchange, exchange one piece for another or two pieces for a , etc. Each stakeholder could negotiate with another and reach an agreement.
This is because I see that in that way, many engines halfway or missing, can be finished by raising the piece that was missing.
This proposal may be useful or not, what do you think? Huh...

Mauricio, I think you have a good idea, also, someone else proposed a listing of parts by cox model. I think we should use the forums existing  “for sale/ trade/ wanted” section. Located here:
https://www.coxengineforum.com/f4-for-sale-wanted

Anyone can list what they want, need or have to trade in this thread.  I think everyone on the forum has access to add or delete their own items as required.
My experience has been very positive in buying or trading engines, kits, parts or tools with other CEF members. I know it gives me  happiness in helping others complete a Engine or model without breaking the bank in finding a difficult to find part. cheers

Thank you for taking this idea into account!
Those of us who live far from the United States (the creator of the entire Cox line), we do not have many possibilities of getting parts and / or engines, many times to start a motor, we must use ingenuity, skill and passion, to Sometimes it happens to me that some people are surprised with some work that I have done neatly by hand, with files, saws and few tools, my answer is always the same, "if I do not try, I will be there asleep forever"
I made countless regulator rings for the 020 engine, all by hand, in different thicknesses and materials after so much work, I achieved my goal and that gives me happiness.
I read in a post that a lady is trying to help her son, with the start-up of some engine, logically, here it says: "breaking is learned" but sometimes you can not give yourself the "luxury" of breaking, because there is no replacement, ... then we have learned the lesson, but at a very high price!
I was invited a few months ago by a member of the forum, Tony and I have been here since, I feel that, this forum can become a fundamental axis to solve problems and make fans happy, keeping old engines alive is not an easy task, but, how many times this activity that is modeling, makes us overcome problems, feel illusions, and smile even though we are surrounded by problems of daily life, so if this generates us "desire to live", why not add tools to it? come back very powerful!
There must be many parts of engines, millions out there waiting to meet and form a new engine, I think we have the possibility to do it, just enough to focus that idea here among all.
Nobody has to give anything away, we can simply exchange or buy pieces, and it will be much safer if we deal with people we know from the forum.
It is my humble opinion! Smile

Here is an example of my handmade hoops:
