Actually our solar dryer used wind power as well! As long as the wind didn't blow the clothes off of the line.
Makes me laugh...
When I was a child, I had built a Sal Taibi "Starduster X" competition FF plane....had a Cox TD .051 with a Tatone "tickoff/pinch-off" timer for timing the duration of the engine run.
i also had a cox control line nitro plane talk about dizzy lol i loved that thing would pop your finger maybe even cut your finger if you didnt pull your finger away from the spring loaded prop.

dad flew it in my bad room once it went round and round faster then dad could turn around it wrapped him up in string than the propeller bit him on the neck lol.

them were the good old days when people were payed very little but everything was cheap

Cox engines were great....fully interchangeable parts.

Did you know that the Cox TD .010s turned about 30,000 RPM?

And that the Cox RR-1s and Venoms are collectors items and can be worth several hundred bucks NIB now?

They only made one production run of 1000 Venoms, due to a piston defect.

The Cox/Atwood Mark 15 rear intake drum valve engines(2 variations) are the rarest of the rare, and were the predecessor to the TD line of Cox engines. Been looking for them for years.

If one milled the bottom of the glowhead slightly, one could get higher compression.

Have a .006 cc "Nano-Bee" diesel engine...looks like a Cox TD...but will fit within the boundaries of a nickel.

FWIW

is cox still around ?
No, he passed away in 1981...here's one biographical link:

https://www.modelaircraft.org/files/CoxLeroyM.pdf

He was adament...to the extent of selling his business....rather than use overseas or non-American labor to build his products...that U.S. labor and manufacturing was to be used.

Estes Ind.(of model rocket fame....did ya ever get some of them?.....) and Xenalook(a Canadian Co....check out EBay for Xena and you'll see some Cox engines that'll bring back memories)....ended up with the "remnants" of L.M Cox's industry.

You mentioned you and your Dad with a control-line Cox airplane....

Those old plastic Cox C/L plane were notorious for being underpowered and barely flying....if you could learn to "whip" it around, you'd be OK...maybe..

But one of the last...and best products...that "http://www.coxmodels.com"; came up with was the "Hyper Viper"...with a Cox .049, with a C/L stunt fuel tank that flies on the usual 30' line length....foam wing, full "stunt" tail dragger....that looks similar to the C/L competition stunt planes that are flown today.....minimal assy. time...takes more time to find proper fuel(always use Cox type fuel..no matter what in a Cox engine)...and getting your flying lines dialed in(there are actually C/L handles that have "trim tabs" by mechanical means...dudes were serious.....everything you need is included(Cox method)...except for fuel and a batt pack to light the glowplug.

I can still fly inverted with a C/L today...lol...like riding a bike.

You can get one...even tomorrow on Ebay...perhaps as a Xmas present for your dad, for ole times sake....

If you do so...and ever need a source of Cox .049/.051 glowheads(for those that don't know, Cox incorporated the "glow" element into the cylinder head for ease of manufacturing....Cox also included a "glow head" wrench with each engine....nowadays, now wrench...it's not NIB).

Funny you mention C/L.

Had almost every cox/testor C/L made when I was a kid...wish I still had them.

Still have this super chipmunk I built from scratch.

I remember "Missile Mist".

When I first got a diesel engine, George Aldrich mixed me up a batch of diesel to run the engine.

Oh yeah! Those disk shooters were fun, and spent more than one afternoon with mom pasting Green Stamps . . . heck, they were still here in Texas until 1989 or so . . . Loved the pump up water rocket too - one of my favorites!

Damn you! I miss those days . . . thanks for the reminder! :-) :-)

That's the rocket I had - one of the best toys ever! Never got hit with it, but definitely capable of teaching the lesson 'Stupidity can be painful!'
