TailSpin Aviation

I received word today from Zach that he has closed down TailSpin Aviation. It may not be for good but at the present time he is no longer doing business while he goes to school.

That's a shame for us but good that he's back in school. He had lots of misc bits, dental bands, scalpels & blades, carbon razor blades etc. And the service was prompt.

I wish him the best of luck with his studies and I hope we'll get to see him back in business soon! He went to great lengths to supply me with tissue thousands of miles away, you don't see a lot of salesmen like that nowadays!!!

Thank you for all of your kind words. It has been a pleasure getting to know you all.

I recently went back to school to finish my mechanical engineering degree. I have had trouble keeping up with both the business and school. The packages weren't leaving on time and my homework wasn't getting done, so something had to give.

About a month back I decided to temporarily close my business to continue work on my degree. I am planning on this being a temporarily closure. I have a year and a half left on my degree so I hope to reopen within two years. Of course I can't guarantee anything at this point but so far this is the plan.

It hasn't been all work and no play though. I joined the solar car club and have been designing wind tunnel models for them. I'm even thinking about hosting a model building workshop for them. There is a lot these kids can learn from building models.

If there is anything you need that your are having trouble finding let me know and I can probably tell you where to find it.

Tailspin1 about your comment on youtube video of a Rotational Casting Machine

Tailspin1

Sorry if I'm getting a bit off RC topics but I saw a comment you made under a youtube video about building a rotational casting machine where you said you were building them and/or selling them.

I really need one for 9"x9"x9" casting molds. If you still sell them or know where I can buy one I would greatly appreciate a post here or a message from you,

Any help will be greatly appreciated on this.

And yes I am also an old RCer.

I never actually made any casting machines for sale. They are very simple to make. The most expensive things on my casting machine was the skate board bearing. I did eventually motorize it. The parts for that were bought from a surplus store.

If you do build an electric one make sure your electric motor is rated for continuous motion. Mine was only rated for intermediate use and I had to install a heat sink and a computer fan to prevent it from overheating.
