Oran, I can't find that old thread I told you about now. I thought I saved it but I guess not. Maybe Joe can help. I found it pretty easy a couple days ago, drawing a blank.

And that rod jig is a Frankenstein work of art!

That could really be taken the wrong way you know... but I'll try to keep it PG

Watching from afar I'm hoping I won't miss everything before I get back.

Nice jig again. Your giving me ideas. Jamie gave me the go ahead to pick a FRI/SAT and head down before the build day. We just need to figure out between us which w/e will work best Oran.

18/19 IMO. Oran I didn't ask how Fridays were for you but Friday/Saturday would work a lot better than Sat/Sun for me.

Got carbon?


Carbon rods came in yesterday, I have enough for 50 planes. I guess I over estimated a little.
Who is next to lay up a fuse?

OK guys if your still in I need to hear from you.

I need some help prepping the cores, and if you want a fuse you need to contact me to set up a time to make it.

Right now I am shooting for the 19th Oran.

I can help with cores, the fuse is not as big a priority for me right now, but lets not rule it out.

Pulled a couple of fuses in the last two days and maybe another this afternoon if I get around to it.

I think I am going to do a complete build and post the pictures in this thread instead of starting another.
I am going to call the plane Andy, it's going to be Red and White with a natural carbon bottom.
Here is the fuse I pulled this morning and I already drilled the holes, it weights 4ozs.
