Realizing I'm a total unknown in C/L circles.  Let's get a thread going about the building season.

Very nice Fuse Jig.  Looks similar to some I made many years ago.

Did you make it?  Looks like nice woodwork!

I am right there with you, ,not having anyone around here locally doing any building, I take to Stunthanger or the Alberta control line page on facebook to get fired up.
Unfortunatly my great plans for the weekend, having three days to build, kind of got hijacked when I found out the grankids were coming over,however, that  is fine, I spent several hours looking through my magazines with the two grandsons, one is two and a half, the other three and a half, they must feed of my aviation love because they are really interested in Poppas airplanes. Might help that they are spread throughout the whole house,,  y1

Skiing for the 7th time this season.   I'm embarking on the "Oregon Ski Safari" :    Every Area,  Every Lift, Every Run (in Oregon).  To celebrate my 60th year of life, 50th year of skiing, and retirement.

So I waxed my skis in the shop.

Edit: I looked through my official ex-Boeing drawing file drawers multiple times, looking for a letter that I hoped to find, but didn't. But I found some "Don's" 1.5" and 2" speed/racing wheels and thought Russell might want them. I went over to the roll-away to get a pair of dial calipers to measure the wheels, and spotted a couple of NIP MACS Mufflers hanging on a peg over the engine working bench and took them along with the calipers, and put them in the drawer with some of their kind. I put the wheels with the engine that Russell says he's going to get this next week or week after. That was enough, phew! Had a nice chat with Jeff Rein about our mutual back troubles. I wasn't in the shop at the time, but sue me!

Taking a break from balsa and working on metal. Have a Massey Ferguson 62 three bottom plow and a John Deere 247 two row corn planter in my shop getting resurrected for use next spring to hopefully plant an acre of sunflowers at the back of my property. Why... I have no idea other than it's just something I want to do.

The idea started with an acre of corn for the critters and birds then discovered corn would be more work that I am willing to invest so switched to sunflowers. The plow and planter came off Craigslist for good prices but both needed quite a bit of work before they could actually be functional. The plow is now ready to go with new coulters and one new point, just waiting for a 60 deg day to fire up the tractor and get it out of the shop. The planter needs quite a bit more work before it's ready for prime time. New bearings, lots of de-rusting and general clean up.

Well you did ask what I was doing in my shop :)

        1. Wired a 220 volt electric baseboard heater I got from a nearby home renovation, complete with dead mouse. I'll gladly pay the cost of having the luxury of a heated shop.
                  It's 11 degrees outside!              

        2. Stripped the silkspan off a Scorpion fast combat ship and contemplating the silk covering job that the design calls for.

I glued the wing of my Shark 402 back together. Still needs a lot more work.

To my shame,  I pancaked it on purpose because my feet got tangled in my stooge line.  Third time.

I want to give a clarification about getting tangled in the stooge line.  Two times - I landed successfully when the fuel was all gone.  I was very close this time but didn't know it.

I am going to take all precautions that his doesn't happen again.  I wasn't comfortable just doing figure 8's.

I have though of trying to stamp off my shoes the the string will slip off.  OK - Never again!!! :-[

You are supposed to step back when you trip the stooge line.  The cord on mine is elastic enough that it bounces away from me when I drop the stooge handle.   Church was canceled because of the snow storm and the temps were below zero F degrees.  So I played on the computer , watched a few Christmas movies, drove the wifes  car to pick up granddaughters and thinking about how to get the Suburban home after it quit on the granddaughter that thinks she know every thing about cars.  Guess I will get AAA to bring it home for me as it won't start with a dead battery.   But, today hope to finish covering a project that I'm working on while I contemplate how to do the window details on the B-25.  May wait until a warm day and put the clear to it and just fly it.

What did you do in your shop today?

Astropuppy,

Welcome and a what great Thread!  H^^

Let's see,

I fine tuned the vertical stab on the Gee Bee R-3.

Put a coat, 2 actually, of Deft Wood Sealer on the Gee Bee R-3's vertical stab.

Cut a couple of strips of silk for the Gee Bee R-3's wing TE.

The TE is 13/16 in height/thickness.

I applied the silk strips with dope.

Here's how they look right now.

Aww..... that's a shame. Same thing happened to me before a GS in Fresno a few years back.

I'm not that quick of a thinker but I did manage to figure out that going inverted for a few laps would unwrap it. Worked like a charm.

Trouble is I crashed it in a later flight doing outside rounds......... Oh well, I guess you never get over "crashing" !

Any other tips before I start. I usually build 1/2A to 15 size plane's.

Thanks, Richard K.

Yesterday and Today///// Humm

Not so much

Mostly pontificating on the various forums
 was 83F, now 23F

Nice low humidity BUT not prepared to exploit with a lot of needed dope application on several models

Did manage to set two engines to profile fuselages with metal engine bearers over the Maple

sure do wish I had a much better way to perfectly align holes.... precisely

Getting to the point where I am seriously considering sending engines and aluminum 1 to 3 degree mounts to others to make the precise mounting holes

My drill press is OK but has way too much run out to do the job I prefer ....

I guess I am too lazy and cheap to do the research and find the better spindle, chuck---to make this small form Skil drill press drill a properly centered hole

Of course I guess the real problem may NOT be the drill press but the very cheap drills I bought...
Numbered from 60
Lettered
 and Inches up to 1/2"

 a hell of a lot of drills for maybe $50 IIRC

All have visual wobble in the chuck.... I truly suspect the spindle, as I refuse to believe every drill bit is bent....

          The black cloud of modeling over my head, drilling accurate mounting holes, is forever gone since I bought some 6" drills from McMaster-Carr. They tower over the engines so you can drill the first hole using the engine as a fixture, put a screw in place, drill the opposing hole through the lug hole, put a screw in place, etc.. Runout from the chuck won't be an issue. One drill is .112" and the other is.135" for clearance holes for 4/40 and 6/32 screws.

          So I won't be accused of hijacking this thread, I had to wash the mouse pee off the heating elements of the shop heater refered to in Reply #22.

Today I spent the afternoon sanding the flaps to my restored Ares. I used the method of employing a 1/4" rod up against the leading edges of the flaps and a 1/16" rod up against the trailing edges. I sanded with 60 grit paper on an 8" block. When finished one side, I flipped the flap over and repeated the sanding process. I ended up with beautifully air foiled shaped flaps that only required a finish sanding with 320 paper.The trailing edge was 1/16 thick ,leading edge was 1/4". Special thanks to Steve Dinerman of the Philly Fliers who taught me this technique.PhillySkip

In my shop today I turned on the heat.
Then framed up the wing for my 2nd 1/2A Pathfinder.  The first one has a Norvell .061 and flys great on 45' lines, corners like a combat ship.  This 2nd one will have the Norvell.074, hoping to go out to 52' lines..

Did manage to set two engines to profile fuselages with metal engine bearers over the Maple

sure do wish I had a much better way to perfectly align holes.... precisely

You had to ask that today. Realized I glued my elevator horn in backwards so spent my time twisting it out and re-gluing it.

Hey if you really wanted to do that, I have a really nice Tom Morris one that I bent in the wrong direction, I would've sent it to you!

Actually I keep it on the wall near my workbench to remind me how stupid it's possible to be at 3 AM!
