Good news for scratch builders of metal airplanes - Home Depot rents bending brakes by flybynightkarmarepair
If you're building in aluminum from scratch, one of the most intractable problems is the need for an 8 ft bending brake for most designs. A good one, even used, is about $1000, and at least half that many pounds, although there are alternatives that weigh...

removing old, dried, masking tape by Michael Horowitz
Someone used masking tape many years ago to cover some screwheads on my leading edge. Pulling it off only gives me strips of masking tape. Any suggestions on how to remove this stuff? - Mike

What would you call this tool? Bolt drill guide? by Michael Horowitz
Some years ago, I watched an A&P drill a shank so it would accept a cotter pin. Was a metal block into which various sized bolt could be screwn into, each with a hole perpendicular to the shaft that would guide a drill bit. Anyone know what this might be called? - Mike

JM-2 plans? by Capt.Doug
I understand that the little yellow race plane on the wall at EAA's museum was a homebuilt with plans offered. Anyone know if plans can still be obtained? How come the design wasn't copied by other racers? D.

Nippondenso Alternator Wiring by CW Crane
I have a 35 A. ND alternator. There is a stud marked "B" for the battery and a three wire plug marked "E", "F",and "N". The "F" wire I am sure is the field but how are the other two wires used in the original automotive application?

Aircraft Spruce and their comma delimited order form by Michael Horowitz
Spruce gives the option of my providing quantity and partno. in comma delimited format when ordering. When ordering tubing, "2,03-02400-5" correctly translates into two 5' lengths of 03-02400. However, the same logic doesn't seem to translate for spar stock: 02-123-8 didn't translate into an...

ION aircraft being built at ANE by Montblack

Zink Chromate Paste by Michael Horowitz
Duralac Zinc Chromate Paste doesn't appear in the Spruce or Wick catalog, apparently for health reasons. I do see it mentioned for sale by marine stores. Has anyone using an acceptable substitute, easier to locate? - MIke

aluminum rib, aluminum spar, holes drilled but screws broken off by jls
I'm rebuilding a Super Cub wing and the flanges on the ribs and the spar caps have been drilled perfectly so the #4 steel screws go right in, that is, if a screw has not been broken off. In which case I have the option of redrilling and turning the spars into Swiss cheese and losing ac43-13 edge...

Bose Aviation X versus DC X11 by DonMorrisey
I won the company football pool so I've decided to spend a lot of money on a headset, which is something I wouldn't ordinarily do. I'm wondering if some of the group members have experience with either of these head sets. There is a big price difference. If I'm reading the Bose website correctly...

You Know You're Old Dept. by [email protected]
You know you're old when some kid posts a picture of a plane you've flown in captioned: 'What the hell is THIS?' (It's an AJ-2, son. A nice airplane and one of the largest to have flown off an Essex-class carrier.) -R.S.Hoover

Leaking Fiberglass Fuel Tanks by [email protected]
I have been looking at different "sloshing" type sealers for the inside of some old fiberglass tanks installed in the wings of a Cessna. What is the current thinking for the best sloshing compound for sealing fiberglass tanks if auto gas is used??? I have seen the epoxy resins from a few sources...

? Screw head diameter? by Michael Horowitz
MS24593 is a flat head machine screw with a 6-32 shank/thread. In this application the diameter of the screwhead is important. I went to HD and bought a 6-32 machine screw to see what length I needed (the original having rusted beyond recognition). I compared the HD screw with the MS and noticed...
