Just found this site, and saw your Dragonfly project for sale with the last post over 2 years ago so assume this has been sold.
Thought I would check to be sure.
I WAS LOOKING AT THE WIRE WHEELS ON CDLWINGNUTS ULTRA AND I WAS WONDERING WHAT BRAND THEY ARE? THANKS
I am admiring your work. Please call or text 425 495 7946. I do not check PMs often enough and it is not a good way to have a conversation.
Call me if you would like some useful comments. Voice or text 425 495 7946. I do some work with PVC and have worked on foam designs in the past.
I have thought about building an AL angle LSA. I have a concern about two rivet joints acting like a pair of scissors. resulting in the shear failure of one of the rivets. I had thought to stop that by using AN bolts of the same dia. as the rivets, washers and castelated nuts, saftied with cotter keys. The AN bolt is 3 times as strong as the rivet of the same diameter, and a lot more chafe resistant.

You mentioned that you owned an AL angle bolted aircraft, and I would appreciate any input that you can give me. My model that I am following is the USN trainer, the New Standard NT-1, which I understand had a similar fuselage construction. It had a reputation for being as close to student/cadet proof as a trainer could be, and easy to repair when they crunched one.

Any advice? Thank you

I wish. A Cessna 150 now, soloed a Beech Musketeer, but have time in Monocoupes,. Wacos and Staggerwings. We restored antique aircraft for many years until my father passed away.
Tig welded. I have welded since I was a kid. Went to B&W's welding school to weld their coal fired electic power plant boilers when I young. All welds X-rayed. That was Tig and Stick. Also have gas welded most of my life. The JMR Special is my last tube fuselage, now I just don't have the eyesight and hands getting shakey.
