You piqued my interest cox24711, but I don't see the pictures.
I've only seen pictures of Mark Boesen's tapered screwhead
BabeBee, and that's a rare one.
I'd love to see a photo of the PeeWee.

1957 Pee Wee .020 (Cat#100 - Manufactured Feb 1957-Jan 1996)
Buoyed with excitement of the Babe Bee 049 Leroy wanted to make a half size version of the Babe Bee. So he did. And they called it a Pee Wee .020, just like a Babe Bee only half the size.

Yes, could you please post a photo? Are you referring to the tapered screws on backplate?

Probably a tapered crank shaft. I know the very early babe bees used flat head tapered screws for the backplate.

What's a tapered screw...?
A conical thread, a countersunk head or something else...?

The pics of the pee wee look like standard fillister head screws in the backplate.

Ahh, okey, the title was confusing to me. I would have called that a countersunk screw/head...

That's very easy check for, just undo one of the screws...

That's just something that I google up for an image and thought it looked funny.
I guess regular wood screws are all tapered while some of them are countersunk too...

Hard to see the countersunk backplate from the picture however, if it is truly countersunk then someone has removed the originals and installed the wrong screws.

What's it worth? Nothing to me, but it would appeal to a collector I imagine. Condition plays a big part in what folks will pay.

It's hard to say what it is...and you can't really say what year it's made unless there is a feature that can be identified as a particular year.

Could you post some close ups of it as well as the screws?

Here's the early '56 Babe Bee, we know its a '56 because that the first year they were made and the tapered screws were only made for  short time and quickly replaced due to leaks.



With the three blade prop, its likely it might of been a power plant for a F-100

Sorry but that's a standard pee wee backplate. You can clearly see the it does not have a tapered counter sink screw mount. I have a "couple" of pee wees and have had every one of them apart. It is an early backplate that probably had the bright finish but that's it.
