Air injection fittings.

I've got the air fittings ready for the fuse mould.

The nut and hose tail will be cast in the wing root of the mould. I will put some teflon tape around the exposed part of the thread to protect if from resin contamination. A small ball of plasticene will be stuck in the end, which will also stick in place long enough to get the first coat of gel coat to retain it. When all layed up and cured, the hose tail can be removed and replaced with the plug as in the pic on the right. Some plasicence can be used to fill in any gaps etc. on the inside of the root face.

When ready to pull the part, I only have to change the tail for the plug, put a hose on it and apply a few psi of air pressure.

Jim.

edit: That should read: "the plug for the tail".
