    3 questions

    1. Can't find #3 wood screws for wingtip bows. Won't #4's work.

    2. Northland's CD shows 41001 ball bearing pulley in wing parts. My pulleys are all bushing type. Should I go with 41001's?

    I am trying to buy the 14394 wing drawing from Cub Club. It is 4' by 7' and the quality is fair. Anybody have experience with this drawing? Is Univair's drawing about the same. Cost is about $34 with shipping.

    Comment: Bought channel rib braces from R. J. at Dakota Cub. They are high quality. The old ones were corroded and cracked so these will get alodined.

    Thanks for the usual splendid help.

    Mcmaster Carr has #3's.

    My wings will get #4 with a phillips head screw. I fought with the flat blade ones enough when I took the wing apart.

    Just a suggestion, you can download the drawing from my web site for free, then take to Kinkos for a full size print. The quality should be very good. Not sure the cost differential. Just give Kinkos a call for a quote. The drawing on my site is 36x83.

    Christian, I got the drawing on a microfloppy. Kinko's copied it for me for less than $10, and it is a better drawing than the one on my CD.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, Tim, I ordered some, and I know just what you mean about those slotted screws -- they break.

    I use #4 slotted on the leading edges. Those small philips tend to strip pretty easy to me.
