Occasionally I do searches on Tatone and Dubro muffler products. These are items discontinued years ago.

Just a rant, but just now I did a search on "tatone muffler" in E-Bay. Lo and behold, there are at least two examples of what I will mention in my next paragraph.

one thing I learned is if the seller does not post photos of the exhaust port side of the muffler, don't buy. I've already been stung twice through the years. There is a reason why they don't post certain photos. More likely than not, the opening has been modified to the point that it is very difficult to use the muffler without having to do radical surgery or patching.

Also, one E-Bayer has a Tatone Peacepipe 09-19 muffler in NOS packaging for $89 plus shipping. No muffler is worth that price. Also, I've noticed recently non-Cox standard run-of-the-mill engines going for ridiculous asking prices.

Seems a lot of speculators attempting to milk things for more than they are worth. Doh! Tired w/ Coffee Read

The good? I got a hard to get as hen's teeth NOS OS Pet .099 701 muffler in original unopened packaging for $25.50 shipping included. Also got an NOS Tatone EM-1 09-19 In Cowl Muffler header for $4.74 shipping included. I already have one EM-1, with two want to use these to reroute exhaust on a Sterling 36" P-38 with two Enya .09-III's.

With those 701 mufflers you have to make sure both length springs are in the package. The shorter spring is for the OS MAX 6.

If you find OS 704 mufflers with a cheap BIN those are sought after too. The last one I watched sold for $65.

Didn't know the muffler was also used for the OS Max .06. Back around 1973, I wanted more power for my single channel Golden Bee powered Goldberg 1/2-A Jr. Falcon, so I ordered from Hobby Shack the OS .06. To my surprise, they substituted the OS Max .10R/C, guess they were out of the .06's. Several years later, put that .10 in a Ken Willard all balsa 39" T/F Schoolmaster. With exhaust baffle throttle coupled to RC carb, it was the loudness as an unmuffled reed valve Bee. Wow, talk about pepping a .049 plane up, it was the bee's knees. Very Happy

Hi, Do you know by chance of anyone that might be looking for Tatone "peace pipe" mufflers? I have 3 of them in excellent unused condition that I would be willing to part with.
