If you have the required tools, Why not draw one up and build one yourself?  My dad and I built our own many moons ago. Dad still uses his. I have since gone minimalist and just take a glow igniter and tach out to circle.

Draw up what you think it should be, then build a mock-up with either cardboard or foam board. Use those as templates and build the final product. You will be able to build it to exactly suit your needs.

Either ways, good luck!

Try Sporting goods stores...  Got my first one at Walmart.    I found my current spare on ebay for a decent price and free shipping...

Dan...Dane shows some of them... I got most from Amazon in various grits and widths... very useful

Technique is critical with the coarse grits .... the paper works in both directions up n down so as you feed the wood up against the grit you need to fold firmly down.... My Scroll saw is variable speed..... slow is a lot easier to control than very fast for the coarse grits but good n fast works well for the 150 to 320 grit stuff

    So they will fit any scroll saw? I have a Dremel and a Craftsmen scroll saw with a variable speed adjustment. I wonder if Wally World has these on the hook in their stores?
   Thanks a lot!!

  How the hell did it work? I do not remember ever seeing these, but do remember the SFA debacle.
   Type at you later,

Engine set up tips / Re: Balance a Engine
« Last post by Peter Nevai on Yesterday at 06:28:24 PM »
Over the years there have been as many people doctoring model engines as ones modifying CB radios. NOTE: The CB radio guys usually produced more reliable results. As many had complaints of ruined motors as those singing their praises. The majority of successful ones just remedied short comings of certain engines like making bushed con rods for those engines that only had aluminum to steel contact at the crank pin. These days the good ones like randy have ABC piston and liner retrofits made and again look to remedy obvious shortcomings of engines they modify else they create entire engines specifically designed for CLPA. Single cylinder engines inherently vibrate. In motorcycle applications rubber isolators are used to help kill the vibrations in cases both at the engine mounts and the handlebars. They are / were called "Thumpers" for more than one reason. As the photograph posted shows, designs like counter rotating mass and other techniques are employed to tame vibration with mixed success as it usually only successful at rather narrow RPM ranges. But often at least in motorcycle applications sometimes vibration is considered an attractive visceral feature. Go Figure, I personally was never a fan of numb butt or hands.
