Haha, only kidding.

I've learned a bunch from you guys. Maybe some stuff I shouldn't know, but that's ok too.

Strips of wood and straight edges placed so so, TE topsheet under jig. Smashed out PDF (pretty damn flat) after cure . Slow but moving forward...

Now now Steve.... some of the discussions there are NOT for the faint of heart. If they got a chance to read some of YOUR POSTS they just might get scared and beat feet out of the class.

Don, that looks very sweet and neat, but whats with the headlamp on the bench, bloke? Are you getting in a bit of covert building during the wee hours? We are here for you, if you need someone to talk to and a little therapy...


Two hours in and i'm half way down Thermic's latest page, its a marathon.

TD my son... no knowledge is bad. Now the misuse of that knowledge is what can get you into trouble. We in no way advocate the use of any knowledge posted on the brewers site for any kind of activities that are against the law.

You can relax Jeff, they are all seniors. Slippery old devils actually, laden with 'the knowledge' I don't trust old people....

That's a funny one! I don't care who ya are! Sorry Don... Wrong Don.. All these nicknames throw me off sometimes. But you should try sloping if you can ever find a decent one! WOOO!! Fun!!


Very interesting installation Steve. Very nice too! Your remark about "old hippies" reminds me of that Bellamy Brothers song. You ever heard it? LOL Makes me laugh.

Nope. Wouldn't mind though John, I need new building music all the time lately.

Yesterday evening I built to the soothing playlist stylings of Don Wells.
My ears have stopped bleeding today, all that acid must have ate into my eardrums.

Neat installation. Now, where are you gonna' stick that battery?
Thanks for the info on the hinges.

Don
Those gel cells work like a champ. I also have two of them. My best weights are a couple of my old crew socks (size 13) filled with sand. They can form to any curve for hold down.
Progress on the Oly is lookin' good, pard! Nice strong wing.

Hey Sean, Gerald,

Yup, those old spent batts are good weights. We go through a lot of UPS unit at work and have several of them . I also use Sea Pearls which are diving weight bags.

Steve, the headlamp helps me out sometimes when my tired eyes have a hard time focusing, good hands free lighting. Therapy...yes please, I'll have a double helping .

Now, you know when it's time to rock, that's when you visit old Don's page and crank it up. I'll be uploading some new "Sick Puppies" shortly. Kinda dark, three piece band with a little goth bass player babe that's right up Stevie's alley .

I snagged a lot of lead weight when I was painting aircraft at the museum. The facility director asked us to always take the balance weights off control surfaces while we had them torn down and chunk the stuff since they were non-flying displays. I did. Right into my truck bed. Got pieces in every conceivable shape and weight. Some of those larger babies have 40-60#s on one surface.

Yeah Sean, I feel like a pro builder now. I've graduated from cans of soup and baked beans to flat bottom gel-cell batteries and diving weights . I used to have a bunch of lead myself that I had for years and ridded of before I started this build...dummy. They were pieces of tin/lead anodes out of a plating tank. I use to melt them down and make fishing sinkers. I must of had 300 lbs of the stuff. If I had them back, I'd melt them into some muffin pans and use to build with.

Question for all. Do you guys seal of your spoiler bays? Just wondering because I do have some debris in my Spirit wings from landings that I can't shake out. Doesn't hurt anything, just irritates me .
