    Fresh Air Mask- Supplied Air Mask

    The hood totally encloses your head and neck, down to you shoulders. The air enters the rear of the hood and inflates a collar at the bottom of it, and then the air flows over your head. If I shrug my shoulders or change positions so that my shoulders move up, the hood will move up off of my...

    Fresh Air Mask- Supplied Air Mask

    I got the full hood due to the fact that I am using 2K polyurethanes and wanted as much protection as I could get. It's nice not having your eyes get dry from the fumes, and it has a replaceable HEPA filter built into the blower, too.

    preceptor aircraft

    Larry, I believe DuWayne is still in business, but I've heard of others who have also had some difficulty getting in touch with him. Join the Yahoo Preceptor group and see if anyone there has an engine mount or can build one for you. Marty

    Shipping Parts

    I had a friend use U-Ship last year to ship a '66 Chevy he had purchased, to his house. The price was reasonable, the car arrived on time and undamaged. Check it out, I don't think it costs anything to register or get a quote. Marty

    LSA or GA Ticket?

    I purchased an ultralight and thought I would take enough lessons to get competent with the ultralight. However, before I began, I decided to just get my PPL because that would provide me with everything I would need, regardless of whether I decided to move up or not. I figured if it took me 12...

    Last night I was cleaning the adhesive off of the wings and ailerons of my N3-Pup in advance of recovering them.

    Any cool aviation things to see/do near Las Vegas?

    It's not aviation related, but if you've never taken a tour of Hoover Dam, you should. An amazing piece of engineering an workmanship.

    EAA 1928 Ford Trimotor

    Stout was the name of the gentleman who designed that aircraft and others. He partnered with Henry Ford on the Tri-Motor. I like the interior, a far cry from today's. :gig:

    Brother Label Maker or Set of labels from ACS?

    The one thing I remember about the Dymo tape was that it had a tendency to curl up after it was applied. The closer you were to the end of the spool, the worse the condition was. And because of the raised letters, there was less surface area bonding the tape down which meant they would tend...

    Brother Label Maker or Set of labels from ACS?

    Those aren't hay bales, they're "cow-coons". They are what cows turn into in the winter. In the spring, they emerge as cows once again to complete the cycle. :silly: Marty

    For Sale Older KitPlane mags

    Yes, they did. I was looking for an article about the Inflatoplane by Chuck Berthe, and it was in one of the issues that was lost. Fortunately, Chuck Berthe came through with a copy he had, and his wife contributed a personal story about their children and the Inflatoplane! In this case, that...

    Top 10 Movie Dogfights

    After watching "The Great Waldo Pepper" on Netflix some time back, I stumbled upon a Youtube video of Bo Swensen discussing the scene when he and Robert Redford went out on the wing. Yes, it was real and so were their expressions! No acting there. :gig:

    Folding vs removeable wings

    The Preceptor N3 Pup has a folding wing option. The aileron cable is disconnected at one end of the turnbuckle in the cabin so you never touch the turnbuckle adjustment. Hopefully after this weekend I'll have the folding wings installed and adjusted and can test it out. It's so simple, I...

    New welder

    I use shop air with an inline water separator. The air line runs are long in my shop and I drain the tank every time the compressor runs, so the chances of ingesting water vapor are very slight. I found someone on Ebay who sells the consumables for that plasma cutter, as well as some...
