As to ''horizontal drilling'', thee may want to check out the message thread about rock splitting. The hydrodrill filks make some, but they mount in a bed of a pickup.

As to water rams, I fired a search through the online indexes here. See signature for url.

Countryside and Small Stock Journal, 86/1, Jan/Feb 2002 is the latest indexed reference to ''Water Ram'' in the indexes.

Best however was done by Mother. #57, page 120. 1979. Complete parts breakdown. No, we don''t have a spare copy of that issue. Would suggest microfilm or microfiche to get that article. There was also, at one time, a plan.

Thee might want to also call Mother, speak to Heidi, she may be able to swing a reprint of that article if thy local library does not have it on film.

Take care,

I agree with Pate, go to your local library. If they do not have, either a copy or the microfilm, ask if they can obtain it through Interlibrary Loan. You will probibly surprise them with the request, but it can be done. If you live near a large research library, that may be the place to go look first.

Steve, no ISSN found on it on the tmen issue. Sorry.

And we have the Homemade Power book. That was a ''lone print special'', not an issue. Not what he needs, unfortuneatly. I see that one quite often on EBay. It was one of Mothers most reprinted specials.

Ray, we did get another shipment of material, I checked, still no dupe of that issue, so sorry. I did get a lead on a Mothers water ram set of plans, but when followed was an incomplete set. Sorry.

Take care,

Ok pate, I was thinking it would make it easier for me to find that issue. I am not sure if my grandmother will have that issue but I am going to go up there in a couple weeks and try and talk her out of her issues. She has had them for many years too. Probably some of the issues from the 70''s and 80''s up until they went bankrupt.
Personally they were better magazines at that time as they didn''t have half the magazine in ads.

Does anyone have any information on horizontal spring drills. I want to drill into the side of a hill and create a man made spring. Also does anyone have any info on building homemade RAM pumps.[?] ray tucker
