Model Engine Test stand


The latest project from the Boice Model Ranch in Xenia: A multi-
engine, portable test stand.  The top is a hard maple cutting board
and has been coated with Klass Kote Epoxy for fuel proofing; it
has a clear central area for ignition units.  Around the perimeter 
are various mounts, most are commercially produced but a custom
aluminum one from the late great Bucky Walter accommodates 
Orwicks.  The bottom shelf adds rigidity and accepts weights in 5
gallon buckets.   With three legs, every surface is effectively a 
single plane.  Lockable wheels keep it from escaping the testing
