Kevlar Tow

I received a PM this morning asking if I still have Kevlar tow available. I guess there is still interest, so I thought I would renew a thread from a year ago.

I like to support sailplane building, so I am once again offering Kevlar for wrapping spars and joiner boxes. It is 1500 Denier, about 80 lb test based on data I have seen on the web (1140 den = 60 lb test). This is the same material that my son, Little Flyer, sold over 10 years ago to help pay for his F3J planes. For more details, see Little Flyer's old thread here:

and the thread from a year ago:

Also, I'll stick with the price from 10 years ago ($5 for 100 feet), but due to increased costs including postage and packaging, I have increased the minimum order to $10 (for 200 feet), shipped. That's still a fraction of the price of on-line retailers and no extra shipping charges.

Orders will be shipped in increments of 200 feet, so 400 foot order ($20) will be shipped in two separate packages. This makes packing easier and minimizes mailing costs.

PM for PayPal information.

Recently I have had a few requests for more Kevlar tow to wrap wing spars, so I thought I should resurrect this thread. The price and terms remain the same as last year: $10 for 200', including shipping. Multiples of 200" will ship in separate packages as it simplifies packing and shipping. PM me if you need some.
