    Norman,

    I was curious about your handle "Goldstar" and now I know!... I was in the US Army during the Viet Nam war but they sent me to the 'other' war zone, I did my whole tour of duty after training in the Chicago defense area. Got there right after the big riots in the 60's.

    A while ago there was a discussion about a Penbwl mode boat powered by a steam outboard engine. It referred to plans for the engine published in the August, 1933 edition of Popular Mechanics. While searching for a copy of the magazine on ebay, I found a offer of seven CD's containing over 600 past issues of Popular Mechanics for $19.99. I bought them and boy, what a find. The vendor has more copies of the discs available. Now all that I need is some free time to read them and find some projects.

    I love going through those old magazines, there is so much interesting stuff in them. That's $20 well spent, I think.

    As an aside, all of those old Popular Mechanics, Popular Science and lots of other similar magazines are available free on-line through Google books. Some may not be accessible to those outside of the USA, sometimes due copyright rules and other such nonsense.
