I have powered it here with an A.F. No. 2 transformer because my dry cells have gone dead. I used a scrap piece of closet rod which was already cut for my log. It is a bit large, but a quick modification at the front holder screws took care of that. I also substituted spoke wheels and removed the tie rod from an old MI steering unit. A building tip: Placing a BH solid collar on each side of the G strip behind the BT disc helps eliminate a lot of binding and blade drifting while running. Oh, one more thing, don’t install the P13 & CJ gears on the wrong axle as I first did. That blade was really moving!
