    Gunsmith lathes don’t require NASA spacecraft accuracy. There are plenty of imports that work fine. The good ones are now Taiwanese import[emoji15]. Hard to figure. An old heavy 10 is a very nice...

    Put your opened tube of 5200 in a plastic bag or seal the tip with Seran Wrap. Then put it in the freezer. Keeps a long time that way.

    We use it on boat stuff all the time.

    Barnstormer has a very nice C185 now. I’ve seen it. From what I saw he can fly it just fine. I think this is a pretty old post.

  6. Has anyone here ever flown a RANS S-7 on floats or amphibs?

    Don’t want to offend Roddy any further so I’ll keep my lack of water rudder time opinions to myself as building one of these things and flying it a couple hundred hours doesn’t count. [emoji1]

    If you say so. With floats there’s somewhere around a 450# payload left maybe. Pretty thin but could theoretically work I suppose for some folks but fewer than you might think. It isn’t gonna take...

    My -11 was C90-12 but no electric at the time. I believe someone has put a starter in it since. It has flaps, -18 seat, 2 tanks,no headers. It is #900 plus. It’s been passed around quite a bit...

    Seems like my dad talked with Hal about a Hackman leaner and I believe the consensus was it would be of very little use at our usual altitudes. We got a set of the exchange intakes with the 1”...

    Not a float guy.

    We burn closer to 5gal with ours on 29” Airstreaks. Sea level and cooler is much different than the guys getting by on 3.5 at higher altitudes. Of course I’ve always had the...

    Funny. Wonder if the author ever considered his generation may have been overly idealistic, revolutionary, and collectivist.

    There’s one for sale on the Juneau Craigslist. Might be worth asking if they’d rent. Most of the rentals occur over there because somebody knows someone, etc., don’t see much of anything advertised.

    Not sure if Pat Hogan is still doing work, he’s in North Pole I think. Very thorough Cessna guy and a good dude to boot. I don’t have a number for him but I bet Google does.
