BIG Valveless For Sale

Post by Eric » Sun Jun 08, 2008 9:02 pm

Ok heres a really big valveless I built over a year ago now and havent been able to get ahold of the guy who ordered it since shortly after the time it was ordered. Luckily the deposit covered the materials because there is a lot of $$$ worth of stainless in this beast.

Its been sitting around taking up room in my shop for far too long now. Unfortunately its a little too big to ship by normal shipping methods, though I think it would work for the UPS freight option.

It uses a 3.5" J bend with a 16 gauge wall thickness, while the rest of the engine is mostly 20 gauge. I forget the rest of the dims but will measure it later...

Its still shiny and hasnt been run, the test stand has an added part for supporting the tail section from the original pics.

Talking like a pirate does not qualify as experience, this should be common sense, as pirates have little real life experience in anything other than smelling bad, and contracting venereal diseases

whoah, daddy, that's a meaty one. I'd only be interested in a quarter scale model of it. ;-)
you gonna have time to make a 1.5L motor?
Oh, and can you email me the best way to get ahold of you these days?

Hi Eric,

I think that I live w/in relatively easy driving distance of you and I's be interested in buying the beast, I think.

How much were you looking for?

Hey,
Had a big storm and the powers been out for over a day now. Bunch of power poles litterally snapped in half so who knows how much longer its going to be...

The beast should put out over 100lbs thrust. Length is 6' long, 9" tail expansion. Height from the ground on the stand is 28", engine height is about 20".

Who knows when I'll be online next, at a library right now.

Originally it was going to go for $1300 with the stand and a push button starting model T ignition system, but at this point I just want the thing gone and will take offers on the whole or part.... stainless was a lot cheaper back then...

I have model T coils but sold off the finished push button ignition system a long time ago.

I have to check the UPS freight shipping limitatons, but I designed the stand so it could be boxed / crated up easily with everything secured tight.
