Issue 1 of the Model Engine Builder magazine has plans for a Mills 1.3. Electronic copies of back issues can be ordered on line. The price is reasonable (in my opinion) and service is great.

I've been aware of Mills engines since about 1948 and owned a Mills 75 in addition to a number of similar small engines like the ED Baby .46. Living out of a kitbag as a Goldstar airman and then out of a suitcase!

It would appear that some of us are no wiser about where to get plans etc. I think that Ron Chernich is no longer with us etc. I happily followed his Quorn articles and -have one-- somewhere hiding

So more details please

Thank you

Norman

What more details do you need? As has been stated the Mills plans were drawn up by Ron and published in issue 1 of Model Engine Builder Mag which you can buy digital back issues of.

For those that can't use a search engine try here

http://www.modelenginebuilder.com/subscribe1.htm

Go to "subscribe online" select payment method and then that takes you to the page with all the back issues, cost will be calculated but its $6 per back issue( you can bail out if you are just being nozy or complete if you want the back issues.

Thanks for help but always remember that the odds of living- never mind using search engines- becomes difficult at over 86 years.

In the scheme of things, I should not have asked

I think that I am normal- for my age(86+) and that I fall within the 3 Standard Deviations of the Mean. In simple terms, I haven't a clue about computers which a lot of otherwise able old folks agree.
Again, I am reluctant to involve myself in complicated 'so called banking', I am not alone in this.

Again, I don't understand what others might call slang.

Concluding this I must find something positive in my life. Perhaps, I could say that I managed to retire from the drudgery of work some 32 years ago.
Even that has to be an admission of failure. I should have retired far earlier.

So far, I probably am a serious contender for rather more than the Prize of the Month.
