I regularly have mine ticking over nice and slow on air when faffing about with bits.

One of my favourite Wilesco engines. Smooth, powerful and ideal for running accessories.

As above, one of the nicest Wilescos to own.

Big fan of that one....I have its predecessor the D45 (exactly the same engine), in fact it was my very first engine. I've had it for 38 years and it is as good today as the day I got it.
