Bending sheet stock by Michael Horowitz
I ordered some .020 4130 sheet about12x36 I notice the writing on the sheet runs parallel to the 12" edge. Do I understand then that the grain of the steel is parallel to the 12"edge? If I plan on bending this sheet, is there harm in bending across the grain? - Mike

Temporary, portable sand blasting 'cabinet'?? by Michael Horowitz

Forming finger straps. by Mike
A finger strap is a reinforcing piece of metal that is used to reinforce a joint. The impression I have is the strap is heated until it can be formed, then wrapped around both the primary and secondary tubing being joined. For both tubes the strap is formed around them. Is the strap tacked in...

WTB: Rolls Royce Gnome Maintenance Manual by Larry
I'm trying to locate a Maintenance Manual for the Rolls Royce Gnome H1200 MK610 engine. I prefer paper format, but at this point I'm real choosy. Do you have one you're willing to sell? Or maybe reproduce it if I cover the costs? If not, do you know where I can get one? Thanks! Larry

Welding question by Mike
At http://www.taylorcraft.info/tcraft/proj207.jpg we see a restored tailsection. The bushing appears to have first been welded to a plate, and the plate in turn welded to the tailpost. Is that what was done? Is this done to help with alignment of the bushing? - Mike

Bf 109F by Tri-Pacer
I saw an ad in my current Trade-a-Plane for a "new from the factory" Bf 109F still in its original shipping crate as manufactured in 1942. Has anyone heard anything about this find? I wonder if it's a scam? What a find--wow. Cheers: Paul
