I did that when working on cars, to keep the paint from having issues with the drill bits.

I am hoping to get to the field today. First I have to shampoo the carpets and go shopping with my wife. CreoleBaby is gonna love her Christmas present!
They went shopping yesterday and got me something, but they aren't telling!! It's okay, I like surprises!
Still no time to stuff the T---T, maybe Tuesday.

I needed to get some servo screws, it is amazing how you can have so many servos laying about an not many screws. I want to start using the allen socket head ones so I popped over to Gino's site.... He has them.

https://www.trimcraftaviationrc.com

I found myself not able to stop clicking add to cart. First, I cant find half of this stuff locally, and on top of that, I am getting 25 bits for the local price of 3 or 4 <if that>. He has the washers with the neoprene backing and nylon washers too.

I thought stocking made sense, it seems driving around looking for this stuff some days costs me more in gas.

Thinking out loud, gas prices have got to be helping internet sales. well at least for companies that have fair shipping rates, like Gino.

That is fun... I love passing on the learning! It really wasn't that long ago that I was just learning and posting about broken planes almost every time I went out.

Yup... that is why I started in the Foamie scratch built section.

NOT ME!!!! I don't mind teaching adults with a desire to learn (and even then they better catch on in one or two lessons or I've had it), but I've drawn the line at teaching kids! Too many of them were snot-nosed spoiled rotten little schwitts looking to blow more of mom and dad's money as the parents attempted to control their behavior with the power of the almighty dollar! No more, maybe if the little bugger was dressed in a suit and politely asked........maybe, but the ones I've been exposed to were the Devil's own spawn! Funny thing......ask Kerwin.....there are more churches in this town than probably anywhere.......most of them decrepit!

Yeah, that is not a fun game to watch if you are a Saints fan; kinda like the Bears game earlier today.

Yep, poke a fork in 'em, they're done for the season. I guess Waldo is happy though, the Giants haven't fared well against the Saints in the past. Much respect for Eli!!!

plowboy: still like it. Much better than trying to use my hobby as a job... I still think that's why I haven't flown this year. A bad work experience involving a hobby can ruin it; at least for a little while. Keep that in mind before you guys go taking any UAV jobs.

wookster: got'cha. We use sintra for some stuff on business jet cabinetry. Didn't know if maybe you worked for one of those companies.

I'll leave this tab open for a while. You guys are fun to lurk around.

-Eric
