Looking for information on Joe H. Maxwell

From: Rick Pangell

To all,Does anyone have any information on Joe H. Maxwell in Stirling, Scotland. He called his firm " Aids for Advanced Aeromodelling". Most people thought that he had several computerized machines to make his wonders in balsa, obeche and hardwood. But in 2001 he wrote a book, "the Secrets of Aids for Advanced Aeromodelling", where he revealed that his main machine was just a radial arm saw, which he used very geniusly.

If so, please respond to me at <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>, 
Thanks in advance
