-made his own cowls


You can say what you want about modern materials,but I heard the pride in workmanship,when you said," those cowls are BALSA baby" ! You get it........

We want to teach others how to feel that way,man.

tongue in cheek


So,after being knocked about for limiting my use of modern materials,I felt I needed to prove I mean what I say.

So I sawed down a Beech tree,cut out a large chunk,and began the journey to carving a prop.

Can you say -"scratch built" ?

At least it's started....one blade is easy...making the other one the same is the hard part.
Once bolted to a solid surface,templates will be made every inch,and transferred to the other side.
My test procedure is easy- I mount it on a G-62,turn it at 9000 rpm.If it doesn't break,it'll be good on an O.S.91 4 cycle at 5000.
