Greg; a couple of additional questions, if you don't mind. (1) What engine and carb do you have on there? (2) What's the fuel capacity in your centersection tank? (3) Are those the Carlson extruded ...

Here's a thought that just occurred to me. There are now video tools that realtors are using so potential buyers can take a virtual tour through a house or property. I have no idea how those videos ...

Well Dan, the plans call for the wing drag/anti-drag wires to be 13 ga. hard wire, but who knows what the strength of that wire was, back in 1932? Your 3/32" stranded cable is just about the sam ...

Clif; your hand-sketch (very nice, BTW) raises a question about bench vises. I've seen some that have a set of gripper teeth below the flat vice jaw faces, and those teeth are designed to grip round ...
