Don't know anything about titanium bolts, but this thread makes me happy :)

One of the alfalfa farmers I spray for has a son in college. He recently decided to marry another student from school who is Chinese. The son and father went to China, to meet the young girls parents, and were given a tour of some of the farms there. The pictures they took were amazing as was the difference in farming.

In history,China is a agricultural country,in recent thirty years,the enonomic devolepment very fast,but no balance enough,In devoleped area,people are very rich,but in west area,people are poor. But I think that's not a problem,the problem is farmland overload for thousands years,I am not a farmer but I know this,farmland must take a rest after many years cultivation.
 
Yes very different indeed, The farms in the pictures were small in comparison, but utilized the terrain quite well. You're progress is inspiring! Will you have to transport your fuselage to Canada? or will you start a new one there?

About 150 millions people in China,so we have to utilize any place for plant,we have to eat everyday:).This is the cause of I said the farmland are overload for thousands years,a big problem of China.

No,not yet,If I go to Canada,I will built another airplane.I want accomplish this project in China,because I hand over my emigrate application just one month ago,maybe the process needs two or three years to wait,I would sell this PA18 in China then.

Although I understand your joke hardly bucause my limited english ability ,but I like that.

The knife are made from 440C steel,thickness .2559inch,that is 6.5mm,total length:bigger knife:288mm=11.3386inch smaller:7.677inch=195mm.

I want ask you a question,how people use a Cub to make a living?what do they use for?I mean most of Cub host.Thanks.
 
There are people and businesses inplaces like Alaska and Northern Canada that use the PA-18's ability to land and takeoff from short unprepared (no runway) areas. They fly hunters, tourists and others that need to get "there" for a living.

Sounds like there's an error and you have part #33522. The following is cut and pasted from their Q&A:
What are the differences between the 33521, 33521-B, and 33522 dynafocal rings?
The 33521 is the standard mount with all the rings welded to the tubes to make a complete mount. 33521-B is similar to the 33521 but is a type 2 mount, which has an 18 degree angle. 33522 has the 2-3/4 inch I.D. retainers and the tubing cut and bent, and they must be welded all together to make the mount.
