I am currently working on two engines, an Eagle
and a Silver Angel. I started on the Silver Angel a couple of years ago and
because of work put it aside for a while. Work is no longer a problem after
being downsized by Progress Energy. So I decided to start back constructing
an engine. After talking to Bob I decide to build the Eagle first. Bob and
his first wife Peewee have been a big help. I have made several trips to
there home and have always felt as if I were talking with family (only without
He has been working on two additional engines, the
Pacifier and the Little Devil. Both are excellent little engines, Bob has

drawings and instructions.
I for one would like to truly thank Bob and Peewee
for the contributions that they have made to engine modeling and look forward
to building all of his engines.
Having talked with Bob, I am certain that he is
headed for a better place without pain and a nice air conditioned shop.
