Fancher type handle by Brent Williams
« on: April 22, 2017, 06:10:38 PM »
I got some handle kits from Brent Williams today $25 each + shipping. They are very,very close to the Fancher Handle made by Carl Shoup.
Very nice laser cut balsa and plywood. Nuts,bolts, and safety thong included. Very good deal. He has some previous posts with pictures .

Is he going to be making kits available?   If so he should let us know. H^^
I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one.
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days lived.

Doc, I ordered one. When it comes in, I'll post some pics. I sent him a PM. He's really cool, and great with the communication.

Here's some pics! Absolutely great quality in this kit. I will be buying some more. Just like Ty said, one for each plane / line set.
I'm just using wood glue on mine. Glue it, sand it and polycrillic it.

I put a couple coats of clear, then sanded down real quick to 400. It felt smooth enough. Then I used these letters and numbers as masks. I'll sand it again and clear it all over. Then I'm done. Probably could have left it clear. Lol
