Awhile back I purched a couple of those cheepies. I got what I paid for :lol: They quickly clogged. Debri inside the fuel compartment gets into the fine internal jet that leads to the burner head. Humbug

I took bothe of them apart to findout what was causing the problem, it was a fun takeapart :mrgreen:

Entries can be made beggining on the 1st of the month and on thru until the last week. We want to see a turbo-jet :D

At one time the county government was given 13 jet engines that were used on helicopters. They were given so that the county could auction them off and the monies put in the local agencies. I attended the auction. They were sold to one bidder at a cost of 50 thousand dollars each. The engines were unbelievably small and compact. They were contained in nice olive green boxes about 2 times the size of a foot locker. (a foot locker is a chest of drawers :roll: used inmilitary barracks at the foot of you bed :D )50 grand each. It was about 15 years ago.
