Removing RTV by John
I am trying to remove some RTV silicone sealant. I have carved and scraped off most of it and am wondering what others have tried to remove the residue left after mechanical removal. Paint stripper doesn't work and I am trying some MEK now. Any thoughts? John Dupre'

Fiberglass revisited by Lou
I came across some fiberglass at 1.6oz per yard. I bought a small sample to play with but it's an extremely fine weave. I've been using the 1.45 oz e-glass for a while now. Can anyone tell me if this is just as good, better or worse to use? Lou

Why no plywood monocoque homebuilts? by [email protected]
Howdy, After reading a bit about the early Lockheed Vega, the Focker Albatross DIII and the Dehavilland Mosquito I was a bit suprised that plywood monocoque construction hasn't been used in any more modern airplanes. (Or at least none that I can think of) What gives? Is it cheaper to use glass...

Lye as an aluminum cleaner? by Michael Horowitz
I've taken my aileron apart and notice corrosion on the thin aluminum parts, so I'm reading around about cleaning prior to alodining. I've taken a stainless steel brush to the surface and removed most of the corrosion, but it's really a PITA. Someone suggested using lye as a cleaner. Anyone have...

Ultrasonic humidifier -- eight bucks! by [email protected]
New-Surplus from American Science & Surplus, item #37146 I bought one of these for about $50 at a truck-stop near Needles some years ago. Even with air-conditioning the single-digit humidity you often encounter when crossing the desert can play hell with your throat and eyes. The old-fashioned...

Certificated a/c, inexpensive epoxy primer, autobody? by Michael Horowitz
I have a certificated a/c (rag and steel Tcraft). I'm considering the Superflite I covering system. Since the Superflite system apparently doesn't begin until the 'apply the cloth' stage, I'm free to use any primer. I'd like to use an epoxy primer since I've seen what condensation did to my...

Connecting hoses to pitot/static tubes by Ernest Christley
What is the best way to secure plastic tubing to aluminum pitot tubes. The plastic hose will slide over the aluminum tube, though it requires quite a bit of push to get more than 1/2". Would a couple of spring clamps work, or is something more significant called for?
