Well it got me to looking. Here is a neat 1hp gas 4cycle engine from Honda
that would work pretty good, especially with the clutch add on too.
I'll have to think about the RC model diesel engines some more. A RC car
centrifigal clutch on the end of one just might do the trick.
Ill have to go check out our local hobby shops later.

You remind me of my self, being an amateur radio operator, and living in
an apartment can also be a challenge.
However, I respect the person who built their computer on a piece of
perfboard more than the person who was able to purchase the most
state-of-art machine available. That is because I remember when all
personal computers were built on perfboards.
You are the thinker, as well as the doer, and your actions carry a lot
more weight than all of the philosophers put together. IOW, anyone can
put anything on paper, but only someone actually making a robot can say
anything with authority (that is, this worked, but that fell over).
When the first electric motors were made, back in the 1840's, the
builders actually had to have their wire drawn. It just wasn't
commercially available. Magnets came from caves. Batteries were glass
jars full of dangerous acid.
I think that you can make a bender and a shear, with improvised parts.
Keep up the good work, we are all with you 100%.
I appreciate anyone who creates from scratch. Some of the pictures are
missing though, and all of the requests for the pdf files return a:
The requested URL /max/pdf/ was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use
an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.27 Server at max.hm2003.nl Port 80
Is there anywhere else to find them?
