    Maybe. The 4130 box tube I've seen has sharp corners, not radiused. That may or may not be a stress concentration issue. Sounds like an Owner Produced Part candidate though. Get some 4130...

    Yes, that. Mere appearance of potential impropriety can bite. And a kid who doesn't like his/her grade can 'say things'. I didn't teach as long as Marty did, but I was very, very careful about...

    Yeah, what a shame, based on a few miscreants. I was a boy scout, and our leaders were fantastic gentlemen who gave a great deal of their time and energy helping us develop outdoor skills via...

    Once the buggers figure out they can breech the fence and the other side makes it worthwhile, the darn fence is merely an inconvenience to them. I had a couple of confirmed fence breakers at one...

    I did have a friend who made up a ground-drive baler. He said it worked fine, but I think it would be a bitch in heavy hay.

    Looks to me like there's an engine on the right-front. I've baled many thousands of bales with a team like that.

    Part of the original -12's speed advantage is the landing gear configuration. Much less stuff hanging out in the prop wash. Also had nice fairings at gear and struts. Mine even had wheel...

    Darrel hasn't been on the site for a number of years, but I've been hampered by a brake / roll that is too small. Get the bigger one unless there's a good reason not to.

    82" prop on 8.50's is fine. At least some STCs for the 82" Borer prop specify 8.50's or greater. I've run Borer prop on 8.50's for well over 40 years, no problem other than a couple I made all...

    Esoecially around PLU. Ok, NW of there. TDO, at least one element at VUO, and definitely 49WA and 0WA2 are kinda redneck territory.

    Yup, or dye penetrant developing powder - comes in an aerosol can, available at welding supply shops. I once had a leak I couldn't find and finally found it that way after about a half hour ground...

    Not what Steve is suggesting. He is asking you to check gear lug parallelism between the two sides on your fuselage.
