    I'm sure a number of you in the IF "gang" will have seen the website "Elden's Engines" where Elden Durand has written of the development of a number of interesting smallish engines he has designed and built from scratch.

    Elden lives in the USA and has, unfortunately, fallen victim to Hurricane Michael recently, suffering severe damage to his home, his workshop, and his collection of engines. More info can be found here...


    There's little we can do to physically help, because most of us are in the UK, but I'm sure messages of support will help Elden as he recovers from the devastation.

    Hi Huw,
    I should have put that up put forum has (obviously) been broken for a bit.

    We emailed him from the museum a week or so back when we found out, as you say, even email support helps as he has done for us in the past.

    Thanks, Paul. Yes, I'd rather guessed the old forum software had thrown a wobbly! This new setup's working well, though

    RIP Eldon, you will be missed on here and elsewhere. Your engine projects were an inspiration.
