      What was wrong with it? Electrical or mechanical? They came in the mail yesterday. They have two small rectangular open framed motors like the ones you've seen in Edmund Scientific only smaller. I thought I might build two gearboxes for them and add wheels. I wonder how strong a motor they can turn? I'll give you a report later.

      If anyone is going to build a turbot I suggest making a model with a block of wood and two coat hanger wires to see what its action really is.
