    My dad gave my 9 year old an Erector set that he played with as a kid and so did I. I had a blast building things with it 20 years ago or so. My son can't wait to play with it but the instructions have completely worn out and fallen apart and are missing quite a few pages. I searched online but haven't found any yet for this set. The set is #10062 Steam Engine set. This set came out in the 40's or 50's new. If any of you know where I could get the instructions I would greatly appreciate it. :thumb:

    Thanks in advance,

    Rick

    Try going to a hoby shop that sells Americian Flyer trains. If you don't find it by this weekend let me know, and I'll ask my dad. He has the set, but I'm not sure if he has the paper.

    I never used instructions and I made some pretty sweet stuff. The sandlot was my inspiration. :) The coolest thing I made though was a plane, that I hooked up 4 ninevolts and 4 electric motors, bent the steel so it actually looked like a prop or a blade, and the thing actually moved across the floor :)

    I mainly want them to show my son what all can be made out of the set. When I was a kid I didn't use them much either. I think that if I had them it would help start my boy's imagination to make stuff on his own or with a little help.

    I never thought about hobby shops. I'll give the ones I know of around here a call.

    Thanks guys,
    Rick
