Howard Beach, NY Author publishes book on slot cars
Maintenance, Repair, and Customization of the Typical HO Gauge Slot-Car, a new book by Philip R. Morgan, has been published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
HO Gauge Slot Car Maintenance, Repair, and Customization is a handy guide that author Philip R. Morgan hopes will be helpful to slot car enthusiasts. It’s his way of passing on his working knowledge of the subject gained over sixty odd years of collecting and racing slot cars. Although the book contains ideas and tips for maintenance and repair, he believes the dominant theme is rescue-M. Morgan has witnessed the abject and unnecessary loss of equipment on several occasions during his years of practicing the hobby. The loss he noted was due to inexperience or ignorance of how to handle the equipment and restore it to working order. His vast knowledge is useful to any slot car enthusiast, experienced or novice, and this book is packed with hands-on photographs with detailed explanations.
