I use a Workmate like yours for all kinds of things that are impossible to do on a work table.  I find it very handy when I need to stand the plane on a wing tip for one reason or another.  The wing will slide down in the slit and the tail will hang out over the end.  You can pad/shim everything to get the plane stabilized and secure.  So much easier than using a trash can which makes it difficult to stabilize the plane.  I also use it for a paint stand.  See attached photo.

Hey Paul, yep, I already figured that out. Just lined the edges with towels and stood it nose down between the planks. It made it a lot easier last night to align the fixed flaps while gluing. That's a chore that sounds simple, but is really a pain in the ass if you don't want to have to add a trim tab on your stunter. I too am a recovering trash can user. I used an old kitchen can with thick T-shirt slipped over it and enlarged the neck hole for the wing. And a brick in the bottom to keep it from tipping over. Lol. Now I'm sophisticated.

So do I Mike, so do I...

Johnny Smith kept everyone on their toes with his non stop banter on the mic. The entry list was so long it was a challenge just to get a flight.

Looking at those same magazines from 1952 or so, I ran across the results from one of the Plymouth meets. There was one Al Stegens, placing in one of the Speed events as a Senior. Al didn't make it to this year's NATS because of health reasons.

I know this. We were blessed to come into this hobby when we did and were able to be a part of a really good show...

And...The Dayton Buzzin' Buzzards held their first C/L Speed Meet in August, 1947. This year's Cold Cash Speed Bash will be September 6 & 7. We've never missed a year. Join us...!

While down a bit on power and prone to short life, these engines were smooth as silk runners due to the north south direction of piston travel. Tim Danels of the Engine Collectors Journal did a test including flying and says it was very easy to handle and no vibes. They were pricey for sure, how I wish I would have bought a couple after the company shut down and they were on the market just to get rid of them.

I think its a modified Fool, the upper wing appears to have been lowered and the flaps added but otherwise all the shapes and proportions look about right. The engine, in that condition, isn't worth but maybe $40 tops and most likely less, rusty outside usually means rusty inside. The airplane itself, zero, but there always seems to be someone out there that will bite. Several times I saw some weird sheet winged profile .35 powered airplane, something like "hand made original racing plane" or some such. Buy it Now $295, I know it was listed at least 3 times and never sold. Right now there's a hacked McCoy .49 with a BIN price of $255, it's been on there for months. One of those deals where the owner saw on once that sold for that and he's determined he will too. In its condition, I would give him maybe $100 for it.
