Post  spireman on Thu Oct 06, 2011 1:56 pm

I'm finding my much loved and used TD 010 harder and harder to hand start-- it never had a spring (Wasn't new when I got it) and I don't want to use a mechanical starter--- I have an 020 which has been abused with one of those-- not by me I hasten to add---

Has someone got a spare useable spring? Your reasonable price paid----- my finger is wearing out!

Thanks

I think I already saw some home made spring starters, but I don't really know how it's made Huh... Maybe with some special wire...

spireman:

Be aware that the TD .010 does NOT have a plastic cam spring plate as do the other small Coxes.

I believe it is thin music wire then heated there is am engine called the nano and on the engine plans there are instructions on how to make a spring starter (the engine is 0.006cuin)

Glad we could help spireman!

The 010 springs were made from a .024 wire (I believe that is 10 gauge). You could use a stainless steel wire or zinc plated would work nicely as well.

spireman:

If you chose to make your own spring I suggest winding the wire around a wooden dowel of the appropriate diameter.

Since I have a spring (NFS) for the Cox TD .010 I could shoot you the number of wraps and other details you might desire.

Lemme know.

Post  spireman on Fri Oct 07, 2011 2:31 pm

Thanks Superdave--- kind offer. But I'm lazy and I'm buying a new one from exmodelengines at a very reasonable price! I had tried on another forum and got nowhere at all.

Thanks again-- spireman
