I would say yes, it is pretty simple. A bit more advanced than a wobbler or oscilating engine, mostly because of the adjustable timing. It has been a fun build. That and I'm a perpetual newbie and was able to get it to run without to much fuss.This looks like it may be a nice "Newbie" engine. Yes?
Funny, I thought the same thing. I've read many copies of the PM magazine of the time but I can't find the May 1964 issue online. This is the month I was born.
Thanks. This one is not at the regular PM archive. Just found a neat metal bender for the shop in page 171
It does sound better with a load on it, the knock it has gets quieter.The little engine has a nice sound. A small capacitor will stop the flickering of the led but something about the sound and flicker makes it look cool
