I'm sure many of you remember Joe, who passed away in 2015. . I was able to rescue his model engine castings and patterns after his death. For the past year I've been completing four of his partially built Wall motor and recently started a fifth.. It is Joe's version of the 1930'd Wall Mariner Duplex 2 cycle, which Joe redesigned as a 2 cylinder overhead cam 4 cycle. . In the assortment of castings I found enough left to comprise 6 casting sets. . Here is my partially made project as I work through Joe's notes and plans. I did not find where Joe actually sold this kit although he did display one for the BAM's magazine. One of his friends in San Francisco also had one he built. . any others out there?

Hi great looking engine. Are you selling casting set?
Did you obtain the Economy ENGINE patterns too? Are you selling this kit?
I have 6 sets of castings for the 2 cylinder [$395]
2 sets for the Economy[$295] and 1 set for the Atkinson [$395]
Prices include shipping in USA only

There are some individual castings for these but not enough to make a full kit.

I have all of Joe's patterns. They are looking for a home also. Joe also had
kits for model airplane engines but I have no plans and only partial kits for these.
Joe also had a water pump kit. No one seams to making one anymore.Any plans to make any them.

I've had requests for both Economy kits. one sold, one on hold pending payment.
Last Atkinson is now sold also. . .
All of the patterns are awaiting pickup and payment.

I received the Economy Casting Kit today. Wow super fast shipping! The castings appear to be of excellent quality and I can hardly wait to get started machining them. They were packed very well and arrived in pristine condition. I am quite pleased with Dave's service and would not hesitate to purchase from him again.
