    Buying bulk fiberglass cloth and epoxy ? Any tips on cheapest suppliers ?

    I have been meaning to share this with the group but I keep forgetting. I use this company that ships from Michigan so the original poster could pick up directly. They ship to Texas no problem. I buy their Boeing spec'd Epoxy for structural work and their cheaper stuff for finishing/boy work...

    Which Tig Welder???

    I bought the Vulcan 140 MIG from Harbor Freight last month and it is pretty decent so far. I have welded a trailer and some other items. It is okay but don't think you can turn it down for the light gauge aircraft stuff. I tried welding some small gauge 4130 and it kept blowing through even...

    For Sale Midget Mustang Goodyear Pylon Racer $ 60,000.

    We don't have anything to verify the "speed" other than seller's word. But I wish the seller well. Maybe one of the Reno types will come around and take it from him.

    A little doze of reality wouldn't hurt anyone. Obviously everyone knows this is probably why it hasn't sold but let's pretend.

    For Sale Midget Mustang Goodyear Pylon Racer $ 60,000.

    Ask yourself this question, why would anyone pay you that when they can buy an RV-4/8 with much more useful load and range.

    Thoughts: Lycoming O-290G with O-435 jugs

    I already have one of the cases I have bored for O-320 but the problem as I see it is that narrow deck cylinders are hard to find used compared to wide deck. I will probably use an O0320 505 crank with O-320 narrow deck cylinder and solid lifters.

    Thoughts: Lycoming O-290G with O-435 jugs

    I think I will go with that idea. Did the engine make it to TBO?

    Thoughts: Lycoming O-290G with O-435 jugs

    Hi all, I have 2 O-290G's in my garage and always thought about using O-435 jugs on them. Before I go down this road, is there anything I should know about this contraption. I know the airboaters do this but is it safe for flight. Shouldn't a cylinder hold down pin be used? Also, what sought of...

    The life cycle of the common forum thread

    This phenomenon is true for every other forum I frequent. Truth is that we don't think in silos and shouldn't expect these message forums to function as such.

    Is all 6061-T6 "Aircraft" quality?

    Could one mill a chunk of cast material that way you can reuse the swarf.

    Is all 6061-T6 "Aircraft" quality?

    I was going the billet route because I didn't think there was anyone out there that would do small runs. I think I will do billet to begin with and when I have the bugs and kinks worked out, will go the forged route. Thanks

    Is all 6061-T6 "Aircraft" quality?

    I know but not everything out there is cast. Smaller production stuff isn't necessarily cast.

    Is all 6061-T6 "Aircraft" quality?

    What aluminum would be preferred(industry standard) for things like reduction gear boxes and engine cases?

    Race 84 is Back!

    In essence an unrealistic pursuit for the vast majority of home builders.

    Race 84 is Back!

    But if I am copying your installation, I should be able to bolt and play with little to no issues. Is it naive on my part to think that?

    Race 84 is Back!

    Can I possibly look at your installation and re-create your or Race 84 success/performance without endless tinkering?
