Kontax KS90T Solar Twin
« on: September 12, 2020, 07:50:06 am »
To keep my KS90R Solar Ross Yoke company i also ordered the twin version from Kontax. Really like this engine with the twin beams and it ticks over as slowly as the steam beam engines at APS at around 12 RPM. A really nice engine to watch running.

Do you have Kontax on speed dial now?  ;)

Maybe I’ll get the wife a his/hers coffee mug set and say I bought this to set on top to keep the bugs out...

Well i've been meaning to add some more of their range to my collection for some time but never got round to it until now. Plus given the current times, it seemed like a good idea to invest in and support an engine builder in my own country.

Other than Jin, I will do my best to support USA/UK/AUS/SA/EU Makers.

I asked for a Kontax for Christmas. 🤠
