Hi guys and thanks for looking.

Hi, John.

 

They're "lottawire #29s".

I hoped everyone would be OK with my little "ha ha" title.  :)  I think it got edited to only a capital "A", and worried about why that happened for a second.   :unknw: Unless I did that!

Mea culpa, I am your culprit.

I just lowercased 'bevy' and 'buxom,' to be consistent with Slotblog's stylesheet. Because of the periodical editing I do for the car clubs, I follow the wdiely-accepted AP Style editing guidelines (as most people do in the magazine business) and they're pretty strong on 'down-capping,' that is rigidly using caps only in cases of proper nouns and names. 

Nothing wrong with your' teaser' subject line.

A Pox on the AP style sheet, Initial caps can can subtle emphasis to the most Important Words in a post or title.

Yes, it is commonly done but that doesn't make it right and it isn't by any publishing and grammar standards I am paid to adhere to.

Yeah, but according to the AP style sheet, the title should read as: "A Bevy of Buxom Beauties." Prepositions and other short words of three letters or less (except for conjugations of the verb "to be"... maybe some other exceptions I can't think of) don't get caps. I was thinking that the word "buxom" might be offensive, so I'm relieved about that!

Back on the motors, here's a last group shot before they get packaged-up and sent off across the ocean!  Three end bell drive and three can drive.  ***Interesting note.  After assembly, they ran very consistently from motor-to-motor EXCEPT for the one with the Champion end bell.  That one, with the pentroof hardware and using the slightly larger/longer brushes, runs noticeably faster and with no apparent increase in current draw.  I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but when building 26D motors, always try and use the bigger chrome-colored brush tubes, instead of the shorter/smaller brass-colored stock ones.  Also, if Joe Lupo ever sells some again, the brushes he has are tip top quality.  I got me a lifetime supply from him, so I'm good!
