I'd love to see the rest of it if you're prepared to scan it for us.

A scan of the entire thing would be most appreciated.
As youngster, I had every issue of Model Cars magazine from when they split away from Model Maker in1964 to when they closed up shop in 1972 (I think).
In the grip of some or other post-teenage insanity, I gave them all away......

I will do about 10 individual pages a day until done. This will keep you chaps frantically waiting for the next installment
Notice on page 5 a motor called the "Holy Smoke" Think they were trying to tell the buyer something?

Certainly do Joe.
I consider both Steve and Dennis friends ( I hope they feel the same )
Love the advice.. "Never use violence when tearing down a motor..."

A guy I worked with over 30 years ago had all 3 books in the series. I never could buy them from him but he let me copy all the pages. I went to Kinkos a few years ago and had them put all the pages into a spiral bound book for me. It is a permanent part of my library. I still enjoy getting it out and reading sections of it from time to time.40 years later it is still some good information.
In the post right above mine it shows the guy sanding a magnet on a piece of emery paper wrapped around some bar stock. He called this honing the magnets. I'm sure glad technology has advanced over time and the motor magnet hones of today are nothing like what you see here. I just wish I had my own set of hones. Maybe one day...

I will be glad and very happy if somebody could scan booklet nr. 3 in that serie on this side, because I have lost/lent it, and don't remember where and when some years ago.
