    The 112 page, 8-1/2" x 11" book is wire bound, to better serve you in the place it's likely to spend most of its time, the workshop. Combining all ten of Ray's engines, including the seldom-seen No. 2, this book is a must-have for anyone contemplating a small engine project.

    Rudy's Model Steam Tractor
    Description

    Rudy's Model Steam Tractor will reprint, for what we believe to be the first time, Rudy's Case-style traction engine project that was originally published in Popular Mechanics magazine. The drawings in this book were hand drawn by Rudy himself, and have been only gently enhanced using a modern CAD program, allowing them to retain their original craftsman's touch.
