Hi Rick
Please take the angles into account while calculating loads on wires in between the lift struts.​ My struts are carbon fiber reinforced plywood+wood and I used 2200 lb turnbuckles, hoping my calc is correct.

Beautiful work on your welded fuselage Terry. Concerning the flying struts, one
thing that makes me feel better when flying mine and pulling a few Gs is the
old Pietenpol fable (which may be true) that Bernard said that he designed the
Piet so the flying wires between the struts will fully support the wings in flight
even if all four struts fall off. And its not that hard to believe since
at a 1100 lb gross weight each of the four cables would only have to support
275 lbs. Redundancy you don't get with a Cub or most other high wing with flying
strut designs.

 I have built my cabanes and diagonals,
 and I choses to use 4130 Chromoly streamlined tubing as
 opposed to aluminum or wood. I want to corrosion treat the
 inside of the cabanes and am looking for suggestions. Steve
 D, I know you mentioned using CorrosionX on your Bonanza.
 Which version? How would you apply to the inside of the
 tubes?

 Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

Hi Terry,  Linseed oil absorbs water.  The whole reason behind boiled linseed oil
is that it drives out the moisture, so you have only pure oil.  Unfortunately,
once you have opened the can, it begins the absorption process all over again.
As it is stored, it collects more and more moisture.  If you intend to reuse
what you returned to the container it should be boiled once again to remove
that water.  Beautiful job on the welding.  Keep up the good work.  Be good,

Rick,

I would love to take credit for the beautiful welds, and they are beautiful. However,
my welding skills are extremely puny, so I found a great welder in town.
David owns a custom bicycle business. I figured that, since he uses 4130 chromoly
on many
 of his bike frames and he tig welds, he would be a good source, and he has actually
been a great one.

If any of you out there are looking for a welder, you might try going the same
route I did. See if there is a custom bicycle shop or similar in your town. It
worked for me.
