Hello there.  In spite of your best efforts, you've blundered into Eldens Engines, otherwise known as....
Elden's Junky Web Page

(It ain't fancy but it gets the job done!)
Have a look around!  You just might find something interesting.

 
For Us Gearheads........
Life's just a bowl of nuts and bolts!

 

Well - I've survived another year only minus a part of one finger.  I had just gotten The Compressor Engine running well when I got my hand too close to the  timing gears which proceeded to snatch off the fingertip.  I guess I shouldn't complain too much.  It was my left hand (I'm right-handed) and it took almost 74 years for Mister Murphy to catch-up with me.

                                  

That gear now has a nice plastic guard protecting any body parts that stray too close and I've decided to make an effort to be more careful.

It is nice and warm here on December 31st but I had to cut my photo op prep short due to impending rain.  It was just me and the Hvid (my favorite engine) this time.

We here at Hoyt-Clagwell & Company wish you and yours....

Happy New Year 2016!
