    Re: HVLP turbine for Poly-Tone?

    Thanks for the additional info Jay. It doesn't look like Lemmer makes it real easy to buy their stuff, so I'll probably just stick with the Fuji Semi-Pro 2.

    Re: HVLP turbine for Poly-Tone?

    Good to know. The Lemmer's unit looks pretty similar to the Fuji I'm looking at, so it's another vote of confidence that the Fuji will work. I've been trying to decide about the gun type. For the...

    Re: HVLP turbine for Poly-Tone?

    My strategy for painting is usually to put off painting until I sell whatever it is :-)

    This is an old pair of wings that I painted with Poly-Tone a long time ago. They've been stored indoors,...

    Re: HVLP turbine for Poly-Tone?

    Great comments! Thanks very much. It sounds like the Fuji 2-stage won't be too stressed by the standard thickness of Poly-Tone. That probably also means the standard 1.3mm cap/needle will be a...

    HVLP turbine for Poly-Tone?

    Greetings,

    I need to spray a couple coats of Poly-Tone, and it's been decades since the last time I did this. I also have an ugly car that needs a paint job, so I'm looking to buy a self...

    Re: Old HKS engines?

    The Slingshot is an older Kolb model. Basically it's the same size as a Firefly, but built like a tank, fully enclosed, and made for up to a 912S engine.

    Thanks for the effort, and info, but...

    Re: Old HKS engines?

    I've heard some talk about using the V twins, but I haven't really looked into it. I'll make a note to do that though.

    I'd like to be flying an engine with a little more history behind it as...

    Re: Old HKS engines?

    Thanks for the comments. I read most of your tale of woe on the Kolb archives when searching for HKS info. Folding is the number one reason I'm going back to the Slingshot, so I'll make certain...

    Re: Old HKS engines?

    So are there any other comments, good or bad about the HKS? I'm just gathering as much info as I can.

    Thanks,

    Re: Old HKS engines?

    Prop diameter is limited on Kolbs, but without that limitation it might be a good option. The only way to run larger props is to raise the engine and thrust line even higher than it already is.

    Re: Old HKS engines?

    $2k would be painful. That must have been for a new drive. I'd hope maybe to find someone with the opposite problem who wanted to trade. I'll definitely keep this in mind while shopping.

    Re: Old HKS engines?

    I couldn't find anything on the HKS official site, but I did find these two links on the greensky site. They mention different TBO (hours and years) depending on the SN of the engine. I guess I'd...

    Old HKS engines?

    Greetings,

    I'm just starting to look for an HKS 700E, and it seems like there are a lot of these that are really old, with little to no hours on them. It's almost like they sold a bunch with...

    Re: Electric Belite!

    I'm new around this forum, and I've been toying with the idea of an electric plane for some time. I had run across the Belite as well, and this thread gave me the best look at the construction I've...

    Yes, but they don't have plans for the Slingshot, or any other model that includes welding details. Thanks, though.

  16. [Wanted] Kolb Slingshot project or frame- damage OK

    Greetings,

    I'm thinking of building another Slingshot as my next project, and I'd love to find an abandoned kit or fuselage cage. Even if there's damage, that would be OK, since I can repair or...
