"Bat" type wing tips ? by R&R Sherwood
Several years ago bat type wing tips became popular with the racing group. Does anyone have actual experience with the bat tip? Do they truly reduce drag? Are there coordinates and dimensions available for them? Russell Sherwood Glasair I RG Houston, TX

"hinge stock"? by Michael Horowitz
reading thru EAA's "Aircraft Welding" I see mention of 'hinge stock', a tube which probably takes a bushing and is part of the elevator/stab. assy. I didn't see a mention in Spruce; is it just tougher steel than 4130 or is it tubing with a pre-drilled bushing? - Mike

Anybody got a replacement for the kerosene looking fluid in the whiskey compass? It evaporates or leaks over the period of a year with no outside evidence of a leak. The compass has new gaskets. Interested in something a little thicker.
