    Cameras and Photo Editors

    For years I've been using Pic Monkey to edit and really liked it but the yah-ooes in charge of course thought they had to "improve" it. Ruined it for me. So I'm looking for a simple editor to sharpen, crop, adjust saturation and color. And free. None of that stuff like Gimp or Photoshop where...

    (3)Heavy Duty 600x6 Tubes

    I bought these in 15 for a trip to Utah. They are supposed to be heavy duty which is what I wanted for the sharp rocks and rough strips I planned to land on.

    Small Continental alternator

    Working when removed a couple years ago. If you're installing the B&C Item 200G lightweight alternator you will need the drive gear set which I've been told by B&C is $8-900 new. This alternator has that drive gear set and it "looks" OK with some marking on the gear teeth which I would call...

    GoPro batteries

    I've done a lot of videos with GoPros and the batteries are always a problem. Charge em up and a day or so later they're down and haven't even been powered up. I've got probably at least a dozen including several piggy back high capacity aftermarket versions and they're better but not much. The...

    Welding Question

    I may have a need to mig an AN6 or AN7 bolt to 1/8" 4130 plate. The wire spool says ER70S-6. Is there any compatibility problem mixing that wire, 4130 and whatever the AN bolts are made of? I'm specifically wondering if the bolt will get brittle after welding. It's a fairly high stress...

    Thrust Line

    We had a short discussion a while back about thrust line. As I recall, we didn't go into much depth about it. I know enough about the effects of offset vs zero offset thrust line to meet my needs...I've set my mounts so the crank is plumb with the long axis on all the mounts I've built(Pitts S1...

    You Ain't Lived Til...

    You ain't lived til you run over an AL ladder with a 10 ft bushog. Hidden in deep weeds, forgotten. Been there since changing the sock out several years ago. It takes a looong time to chop it up. And LOUD, you never heard anything like it. And the whole time I'm wondering what the HELL is goin...

    Rotax 912 ULS airbox

    I got a Rotax 912 airbox here that's been buried under other stuff on the parts shelf for several years and it's finally worked it's way to the top. I've read/heard that it's not worth the cost/weight/trouble and have also heard that yes it makes a big difference in the performance. I don't...
