    Mini Hit and Miss

    Might not be on a tractor, but is to scale and a neat little gas Hit and Miss!

    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    It's easy to understand how so many folks got hurt around these old hit & miss engines.
    Just watching this video clip almost mesmerizes the viewer.
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.

    I love those old engines. Back when I lived with my grandparents on his farm, (I was 3-8 yr old) Sun oil co had several Hit my Miss's running the oil wells on his place. ( between Quitman Tx and Mt Vernon) They sung me to sleep every night.

    When my brother & I were young, we'd help with the parts and whole goods inventory at the end of the fiscal year. I'd like to know how many tractor, combine and implement parts; and complete JD & FM Hit & Miss engines we moved to the scrap box.

    I get tears in my eyes thinking about the same thing about old tractor and equipment parts. I could buy a tractor and a new truck with the value of parts that were scrapped. Never had a hit and miss though.

    I would love to have a model like that - as has been said they are just mesmerizing to watch - big or little.

    I looked up some of the model kits - unless one has the gear to do serious machinist work the are really expensive.

    As an alternative - which I just can't seem to find or remember - when I was very young I remember having a little model steam engine. It used little pressed bricks of some sort as fuel to heat the boiler and had a tiny engine. I know it couldn't have been expensive if I had one as a kid......

    Can you tell that winter is setting in on my mind? Desperately looking for a nice little indoor project.......

    Right on! Not only having all the expensive machinist gear but also knowing how to use it. Those kits aren't for the faint of heart.

    When you think of all the power tools, machines, hand tools and measuring equipment you would need to have to assemble one of those kits, $2900 isn't such a bad deal. :-)
