Stewart Headwind by Copperhead144
Has anyone here either built or flown a Stewart Headwind? If so can you provide some information about the build process and or how well it flew and handled? For a 1960's design it really look's nice, however I've never seen one or talked to anyone who's had experence with one in my geographical...

(OT) lathes & mills : vocabulary questions by jan olieslagers[_2_]
The recent thread about lathes and related machinery leaves me at a loss with the terminology, me not being a native English speaker. A) I think I can imagine a lathe, if I understand correctly it is called a "tour" in French and a "draaibank" in my native Dutch. That means, the piece of stock...

Mini Lathes by Kyle Boatright
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...

Displaywindow for KY197 by [email protected]
Any one know where I can find the display window for a KY-197 at a reasonable price? Some where in the past some kind soul cleaned the front of my KY-197 with a solvent. It was bad when I bought the plane, but at least I could read the display, but now it has reached the point where the display is...

Garmin GNC 250XL by Stuart & Kathryn Fields
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...

Oshkosh 2008 Photos by John[_9_]
Maybe I am spoiled. I keep expecting that in this modern age there will be plenty of photos of an event like AirVenture even while it is ongoing. The official EAA site is top heavy with photos of mechanical bulls, past prime rock n' roll acts, and photos of the people that make AirVenture what it...

Are washers necessary? by Lou
I'm building a wood and fabric plane that uses plenty of aluminum fittings and hinges. If I have an aluminum block on one side of a spar made of wood and the aluminum hinge on the other, with a bolt going through, is there any reason for washers? It's not that I wouldn't use them, but it helps...

Drilling out old rivets questions? by Fonz
G'Day all. I have a Cessna 310L cockpit which I will be converting to a simulator. I wish for it to stay as authentic as possible, including method of construction and cosmetics. As such I have to repair/replace and modify some aluminium panels. My question: What is the best way to remove solid...

Harbor Freight Support group by [email protected]
I have been considering starting a support group for people with a likewise addiction to my own. The day Harbor Freight moved into my town, my life was changed. It was easy to avoid it when it was online. I know other stores have impulse items by the checkout, but this damn place is filled with...

Shrinking inner sleeve by Michael Horowitz
A splice by inner sleeve requires an inner tube with an OD just under the ID of the original tubing. I've been splitting the tube, removing a 5/16 lengthwise piece and then squeezing the tubing in a vice, trying to keep it round. I'm running a bead along the seam, then grinding it down. Finally, I...

Refinishing a Wood Prop by Kyle Boatright
I've noticed that my prop is beginning to show signs of wear -chips in the leading edge, and cracks in the clear finish. Given that I'm having shoulder surgery in a couple of weeks (and probably won't be up to flying until the arm is substantially healed), I should have some time on my hands to...
