So, Doc, does that mean we'll no longer be able to call you half baked? LL~ LL~ LL~ That's the reason I'm gonna do that. VD~

Quality time in the shop today with my hairy coach.  Making new handles for next year and starting to make templates for new plane. H^^

Next step on handles is fitting to the hand. D>K

Bootlegger told me that the collar set screw threads were 4-40 so  I stopped at Ace and bought me some 1/4 4-40 screws with a screw driver head and started replacing the Allen set screws. You can get better torque on them now! Tim

I've never had a problem with the set screws that come with wheel collars.   Of course I grind a notch where the set screw will be.  Even those few that come with slot/phillips heads I grind a notch, but I usually replace those as the heads some times get in the road. D>K

If you plant to mold balsa over the mandrel with ace bandaids then a easier way you s to use foam from the hardwares store.

In my shop today...???

Much to cluttered to get much done....that and cold front, sleet, snow, low temps making me want to get back to main house for a good hot toddy

BUT I did manage to find two of my three Horzun JIS screw drivers....note to self...need a second set as soon as Amazon has a good price

Pushy Galore is now completely framed. In fact, I even put her on wheels.

There's always details that need tending to before the thinned coats of, whatever you use, to harden the balsa go on.

Years ago we used Polyester resin. I really liked using that system.

With no open bays I'm not sure yet what direction I'll go in with that.

I've used dope, Deft Wood Sealer lacquer and water base Polycrylic. Some areas will have glass cloth and other areas will be silked.

I'll try to get that mapped out today.

Second day of sub 20F and wind... shop heaters and dogs hogging time near them, Light sleet n snow is not real usual in this Cen Tex location but we do have these days a few times a year.....looking like back to 50s day time later this week...Yea!

Made a somewhat meager attempt to de-clutter an working area to finish the re-cover on a Primary Force
Finally opened the SV-11 box... impressed....nice well done assembly of the major parts and covering with much less wrinkles unlike the older Nobler or Brodak P-40B

Spent some time with a layout program for a shop conversion.
We sold our 40' RV last year and the 15' wide x 42' long x 16' tall RV parking cover is getting closed in as a nice big Model airplane shop and hanger...this one with full AC in the plan

Exploring all the alternatives for insulating.... seems spray in foam for the Tin roof/ceiling is a easy way to go... but a tad concerned with later deterioration of the exposed foam.... I have seen it a few times in larger all metal buildings...just not sure how long it lasts before it starts to deteriorate .... Years ago I used the spray cans of self expanding foam a few places around the property---- to seal areas going into the main house... 15 to 20 years later the stuff is pretty crumbly and dry

Well with a few hours a day I finally have the handles ready for lines.  Also want to show off new tool I picked up at the swap meet.   Brand new Dremel battery powered tool I used to shape the handles.   Cost me only $20.00 dollars.   Has variable speed also.    H^^

Charles, I heartily recommend Z-poxy for your project!  I use it on balsa AND hardwood for the sealing purpose and cannot see anything beating it.  It's tops.  Brush it on and then scrape it off.

"Good" Will Hinton,

Are you referring to the wing sheeting? If so, I did a test with a few adhesives. I actually left them outside, sun, heat, rain, no kidding on that.

So, I used a spray contact adhesive. Rock solid and I'm happy with the results.

What are you working on?

Charles, my current project is a super jumbo koa acoustic with extensive inlay on the fret board - just delivered a parlor size koa acoustic, also with extensive inlay.  I hope neither one ever flies!!! VD~ VD~ LL~ LL~ LL~ LL~
IF, I repeat, IF I start another ship it will be another Crosswind but with the Velvet style split flaps that Wesley Dick designed.
Keep building, my friend.  And yes, I use the Z-poxy on ALL surfaces.  I also use it to bond sheeting to foam wings.  I use Bob Hunt's process.

I fiberglassed the fuselage on my Shark 45 using 6/10 oz per yard fiberglass cloth and ZPoxy finishing resin mixed 50/50 with 91% rubbing alcohol. Easy peasy to use, sands off edges with 320 paper beautifully. I use a plastic playing card to squeegee off extra resin. I'll use butyrate dope,thinner,and talc to fill glass weave.....works for me......PhillySkip

Got to listen to Brian Shul, of sr-71 blackbird fame. He was our safety meeting key note speaker this morning.
For once, i really think i do have the best job ever.
His motivational speech was awesome! !

Those are really sharp!  Nice job, now if you'll just make me a set for my Glock 19?  (Actually, the 19's grips are molded in, so that was just a smarty comment on my part.) VD~  Your checkering is superbly done.

Thanks for the kind remarks. Just learning the checkering game. If you look close in real life there are flaws, but overall I'm very happy with them.
I now understand that the very fine 24 LPI checkering is pretty hard to do. My rifle project will be more like 16-18 LPI. Coarser is easier.  Next up is a set of grips for my 357.

HI Gary. My dad used to do that in his back shop in his sporting goods store back in the 50-60's. He also carved in deer, pheasant, ducks, etc. on shot guns and rifles. I tired, but never  got the hang of it. It does take a lot of skill and patience. Great job.  y1

Is that a Colt 1911 ?  Mine is an R 1911 and the safety and lock look a tad different  than yours. D>K
Mine is a 29 year old Auto Ordinance. It's pretty much bone stock and works like clockwork, every time.  When I was in LE half a lifetime ago I used this gun to completely outshoot my entire academy class on qualification day. There was exactly the same point spread between 10th and 2nd, as between 2nd and me!  It was glorious!!

But I have to vacate so my granddaughter Zoey could work on her pine wood derby entry.

That looks like a pink cab-over flatbed roll-back truck! WAY COOL! Do you think she'll be a truck drivin' Mama-Gear-Jammer?   H^^ Steve

In 1944 18-20 year old's stormed beaches, and parachuted behind enemy lines to almost certain death.

In 2015 18-20 year old's need safe zones so people don't hurt their feelings.

I designed custom elevator horns, 30 degrees, for Pushy Galore.

Tom Morris made them perfectly!

I'm delighted.

Gary the grips look great

wish I had photos... years back I got a Taurus PT 1911 and becaus I love Laminated wood I got a few "select" 6" x 6" x 3/8ths  samples in red, blue, and green

took the grips off the 1911 and copied the shapes on the Blue blank sample, rough cut, then sanded to profile and taught self simple riffling very similar to your pattern...interesting design appeared in the laminate...A gun nut at my VFW loved the look and offered me a stupid amount for the not so good pistol...sold never a photo of the cool looking grips...sad

Yesterday made a good deal on a lightly used Rugar 22/45 lite that also uses 1911 grips... your post has me digging around for the other laminate blanks or the web site I found them on...no luck so far....grrrr

Your first time carving look as good a some store bough ones I have....bravo
