    Magneto

    I saw somewhere that there is a magneto out there that plugs right in to where the stock magneto goes. Anyone know what it is and where I can get it? Thanks!

    1600 to bigger

    Anyone have opinions or information about putting 92mm jugs on a 1600cc case? I know you have to have the case and heads flycut, but what about the stroke length? I found jugs I like in both 69 and 82 mm -- which should I use, and what are the ramifications of each one? I'm pretty sure I can use...

    Does anyone any wooden plane pans lying around they want to sell

    I've got a few set laying around...what are you looking to build? I have a CP1350, VP-1, Barracuda and Tiger Moth 80% and the original Tiger Moth sets laying around I'll probably never build. I might have some others, too; I'll look.

    Longerons

    I am looking at 15' wooden longerons for my plane (Tiger Moth). Aircraft Spruce asked if they could be cut down to make my shipping cheaper, and I realized I don't know. Anyone know of a way to splice or otherwise re-attach such parts? As it stands now I don't want to do that, but if someone has...

    Polyurethane glues?

    Money isn't really a concern for me. I'm more looking at availablity and ease of use. I don't think you can get T-88 at the hardware store. What does anyone think about Aircraft Spruce's "All-Purpose Structural Adhesive?" It claims "similar" properties to T-88 but is available in a slower gel...

    That's only a one-seater. I want two. Thanks, though! It looks like a blast! Maybe for the next one...

    Biplane

    Maybe I need to be a bit more specific...I'm looking for somthing in the 85 hp max range, and by simple I mean uncomplicated...I want something similar to the early birds.

    Spruce vs ?

    I don't mind doing extra reading; this is supposed to be for educational purposes anyway, right? I'm not as worried about expense as I am availability : finding Stika Spruce around here is like finding 100 pound gold nuggets. I hate the mail-order idea because I prefer to see the wood I'm buying...

    different plywood arrived?

    My opinion is 6mm is close enough...you could conceivable sand that much off in finishing. The additional plys with certainly make up for the insignificant difference.
