Calling All Zero Builders!

Hey everyone;
Just got the email on where are we going to build our Zero's build party. I was hoping we could have an OC grouping??? Tom? Lars/Keith?? Me? OR would a group like to carpool to Pismo's or Brians?

Sound off and then we can see what everyone wants to do!
I do have a bandsaw and radial arm saw. Hope to be getting the belt sander from HF... but my Garage would hold about 4 - 5 guys working.... the rest of you drinkers can wait out in the street for your messed up parts!

Awesome! I love that store. For those who don't know it's the Japanese version of the dollar store. Things aren't all $1.00 though at least here in the states. Quality and flavor of gadgets are better though!

I am going to both.( I guess all three!!) Pismos is first. I would love to go to an OC build at your place too.
I am going to pick my kit up there.

I'd be willing to host build parties at my house. Maybe on Sundays? That would be the easiest day for me. That would also motivate me to finish cleaning up my shop.

I'll be driving down to San Diego to pick up the kits, whenever they have them ready. I probably won't be staying to do any building, so carpooling may not be an option for anybody. But I can pick up anybody's kit if they can't make it.

Since you guys build together...I have a question...what is the best way to mark and sand the angle of the dihedral into the wing joiner...I was thinking of just eyeballing it. Im building a PSS glass p51 with the usual blue foam balsa covered wing.

tbogey,

If the plane calls for 3" of dihedral, then I block up each wingtip with 1.5" blocks. The root faces the edge of the workbench. Then I run a sanding block along the root, keeping it flush with the edge of the table. Repeat for the other wing, and you're done!

Way to logical to be legal! Nice tip. How smooth is the front of your work bench now?
