A Simple Auto Engine Conversion by [email protected]
the isolation of prop loads on a crankshaft that IS NOT DESIGNED to take prop loads. This is the kind of problem I was fishing for in the original post -- something I hadn't heard of, but constitutes a show-stopper. I like that two-into-one spark plug idea. If that's feasible, I'm a LOT...

I just started using a fresh batch of resin/hardener from Aeropoxy (shipped by AS&S last week). I had a single white light off to the side. I decided to uncover the part 30 hours after the lay up. When I pulled the peel ply off quickly, the line where it separated glowed bright purple for about...

HARBOR FREIGHT QUALITY by [email protected]
Someone wrote: 'YOUR OUT OF YOUR F**KING MIND' ...with regard to suggesting people buy ANYTHING from Harbor Freight. I disagree. I've come to see HF products as a kind of semi-finished kit, something you have to take apart, clean up, align and re-assemble before you can use it. See those...

Would you install lights? by Lou
I'm getting close to covering my wings. I don't currently fly at night and could even say that I have no intention on flying at night. However I had no intention on getting married either. Would anyone install lights anyway or just limit yourself to flying in the daylight. Lou

(OT) lathes & mills : vocabulary questions by jan olieslagers[_2_]

In the spirit of the Harbor Freight thread, I was at the local Tractor Supply Co today and came across their version of the 7 x 12" mini-lathe. Apparently, they are discontinuing the item as it was on sale for $388. Plenty of places carry similiar lathes, the backstory being that all of them...

I just went thru some wiring on an installation of a Garmin 250XL electronics device. Somewhere in there is a comm, nav, display, data entry device and I think there is a roll of toilet paper in there somewhere. If this thing can do all that the manuals say, you better not try it in...
