Two years ago you said you'd stop banging on about welding in this thread. You claim you forgot that (understandable, since you were an entirely different user name/person), but you've since been reminded. If you want to inspire people or perform other public services, maybe start a thread where that would be on topic.Winginitt: Because people just need a little encouragement to attempt something they have never been exposed to and are afraid to attempt. Once they do give it a proper chance it opens up all kinds of new horizons for them. Why don't you encourage people to learn rather than downplay the benefits of expanding ones abilities? Most people just need a little encouragement !

Hi Guys, just before eveybody starts to go 'off topic', the photos I furnished a few days ago are of my own aircraft, The early LMA's were bonded and riveted oblong tube, but I changed some of that to square 3/4" x 3/4" due to supply issues. please feel free to ask questions, as I guess currently I'm the only builder using this method at present.View attachment 89844
Hi WINGINITT, Ive had to make close to 250 gussets for the LMA 'Kit" I'm building, as per you observation above, As they went missing when I acquired the assets of the UK importer.
Be aware that they are bonded, with HYSOL, the rivets 'only' help in peel & sheer !!! I say kit, but due to poor design we are redesigning to make better use of UK supplied materials.
Its fabric covered, using stringers over the top of the gussets to hide them.
Thanks for the offer, it looks like a nice build.The early LMA's were bonded and riveted oblong tube, but I changed some of that to square 3/4" x 3/4" due to supply issues. please feel free to ask questions, as I guess currently I'm the only builder using this method at present.
