Bell Cranks
« on: February 15, 2018, 10:37:30 AM »
Our Bob Mears is hoping some one or several some ones have any 3 bell cranks laying around not being used so he finish or do some more combat planes for his museum.   In my day of combat all we had were the Veco 3 metal bell cranks.   Hope fully I can find some in my stash he can have. D>K

Hope he doesn't mind me posting this here as I got the request off the combat forum.

I appreciate anything I can get.

And thanks for the post.

I'll be in Phoenix in a couple of weeks if anyone is headed there I can pick them up at the March Madness competition.

Thanks guys.

Free bell cranks get free admission to the combat museum :)

Bob..my cell camera is not playing nice with the laptop

I have one old skool aluminum...3" Fox....center bearing... push rod hole is slightly elongated...and has been adapted to buttons for the LOs

I have you address..in the mail gratis if you want it...

I also have one new Fox 3" but I think the later very thin version... maybe ok for display but I would never use it

Veco & Fox made some good bellcranks.

Perfect's were kind of soft for high performance models, but a good bet for display models.  Authentic.
