Got myself a good set of wing cores today!!!
I had a 3h family break!!!
Took my CNC prescription pills...
And started working.
6 cores later the quiver was done!
2 standard wing sets and 1 900mm long.
It was time to do a quality check!
Ive stumbled over my excess confidence, and I did 4 left sides and 2 right sides...
Fortunately the 2 where close to perfect and where from different lengths...
(someone has already done this set of characters...)
Choosing left sides was easy...
I will do a balsa standard wingspan and try a glass 900mm plus all the nice things U guys can do... and I´ll Report to! all my misfortunes...
(sorry Steve I´m not that skilled yet!)
Trying to get the weight down is going to be a PITA!
I'm struggling to do things accordingly to plan!
I want also a light SZALLY!
Johan, who is coming this way by the end of the month?
I´m sending U a present via Santa in December...
(always give something in return, universal law)

That happened with Al*l*s v.2 about a year ago. I bought the first one in the area, and within 3 months our group had placed an order for 10. And the second order of 10 was just received today. Richter says that our small group has equaled the sales of GB and Japan.
I'm hoping and expecting that a light Sally will do well on our limited local hill, which is about 40 degrees and 130' in height. We get a lot of slermal, but the true sloping is a little more limited. Or, there's some better hills about 40 min away.
I just want to be prepared for the Sallization of Madison.

The frenzy begins...
I'm on my own...
Well almost! I still have my one daughter...
I'll seat her in front of the TV for the next 60 hours... (Mom's not around!)
Layer's is up next!

Sticky fingers is an understatement!
I ran out of my usual resin....
Used another with a very short pot life...
Flashed off twice on me!
You know what it feels like patting down the gelled off resin...
And the cloth starts lifting all over the place..
So now to trim, seam and clamp!

What are you using to trim the fabric?
I want to get a pair of poultry scissors as they are curved and fairly beefy so they should be handy for trimming right down close to the mold without danger of scratching it with the tip.

Did you enjoy Chili?
I don't bother trying to cut it with a scissors...
I let it green off (gets a hardness without being brittle)
And then use a new, long sharp narrow blade.
I hold it flush with the splitting edge and move along in a see saw action.
It works fine if the layup it not to thick or has a Carbon content.
One has to be careful not to scratch the mould.
Mine has developed scratches, but not to bad.
If it does gets worse, I'll sand down the edge.
This mould does not have to last forever!

Johan use the force!!!
U are one of the few true JEDI SZALLY´s...
I not a bit worried about the result!
Whatever comes out will fly, that I promise!!!
After all those fuses, U can do it eyes closed, no lights, eating jelly bears... using the force only!
Beware of cold drafts dough, sneezing is off limits!!!
Wouldn't want U having to star all over... picking bits and pieces...
All my fingers are crossed including my feet...

It'll be good!
Yours will be light...
Next are some wings..
I will try some different weight lay-ups to see.
Bagged wings are still pretty new to me and I have to work on my vacuum pump as it varies the suction pressure quite dramatically!
That's tomorrow night...
I have to go to work tomorrow..
There's wind for Sunday!!

The coven is almost gathered!
I´ll be sleeping in front of one white apple...
Waiting for the spell to be broken...
I have a fridge pump, some retention valves, a vacuum switch, aquarium tubing, a vacuum gauge and the thing actually works well, very simple set up with good steady vacuum.
|Aug 19, 2010, 08:32 PM|
I had to wait a while before trimming...
Trimmed and seamed!
I'll leave it to cure until tomorrow afternoon!
Crack the mould!
(It's like opening up a Christmas present every time!)

I'll ask the oracle...
