You have some pretty hard to find props there. The Kelly props and what look to be Rev-Up copies in fiberglass are not something you find everyday. Obviously the owner was into racing by the looks of the pitch of what I see. Most guys typically don't part with that kind of hardware. Ken

There was a card with each package of props Ken, this one referanced an Al Kelly and Walter Perkins. I couldn't find anything on Walter but found this on Al:

Nice haul. I really like that crock pot. It looks the same as the one I have and use here. If it is, you will really enjoy it.

Funny story about that crock pot.

I tasked my daughter to find me one at the flea market, I specified a cheap small one.

As I now live alone she thought I wanted it to cook small meals in it for me.  She was so happy to find this nice one that I couldn't tell her the truth so I had to go back and look for the one that I had found for $2, but it was sold.  

So now I have to find another one to boil engines in.  

That crimping tool is something else.  I googled it and found that new they can run as high as $1100.00 and change but I found them used on ebay for $299.00.  I believe that I can modify it to make Z bends in music wire for control linkages.  

Bob

Edit add - I found Al Kelly's name here under Parts Finder -

Hokey Smokey!  $1100 for a new crimping tool?  Even at used for $299 at auction.....I'd sell it and buy a couple of nice new Z benders  bounce

You're gonna love that crock pot. Just be sure to label it NOT FOR FOOD USE - EVER in black magic marker.....just so your daughter don't make you a batch of chilli or salsa in it affraid

Are you sure it's not a swaging tool? That would be far superior to a crimp tool. I like swaging my leadouts as it's hard on my sore ol' hands to wrap the heavy steel cable. The price seems more in line with a swage.

They call it a "Ratchet crimp tool" Rusty. I have researched the patent and it's quite complicated (for a crimp tool) but it's extremely well made. It has an attachment that feeds wire at a 90 degree angle. To make Z bends, I will have to drill two holes in each side of the frame to come in at 180 degrees, but I'm having second thoughts about doing that.

My excitement is about the Al Kelly propellers and to a lesser extent the Droid Fighter. Smile

Contact the company and see if you can get a refund / since it not what you wanted lol! Man that's Hi dollar I thought 20.00 was expensive for the crimpers I got , I have some Z benders for making throttle wire ends http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lawn-mower-throttle-cable-Z-wire-Bender-for-Craftsman-Cub-Cadet-Murray-Tiller-/260275996463?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3c99a8872f haven't tried it on 1/2A size wire , but you could make one of right size pretty easily .

Does that work well Eric? I have been looking for one that gives nice tight bends without room for alot of slop. The price is right.
