Bruce: I suspect most builders have kept their tools if they are still
flying their 10's as it seems there is always the need for some repair
or modification and we all like to be independent. My recommendation
would be to find some one who has sold their 10, etc. or work with some
one who has built a 10 and has the tools on hand. Have you got an EAA
Chapter close? We have built (2) 10's and have a U206 that always seems
to need some fiberglass or sheet metal work as well as routine
maintenance. if you can't find some used tools, shop around for
bargains. A lot of our tools were from Harbor Freight (i.e. air
compressor, hoses, hand tools, tin snips, right angle grinders, jacks,
etc.). Specific riveting tools you'll have to get from some aircraft
tool supplier like Avery Tools. Epoxy, fiber glass, extra rivets,nut
plates, etc. from Aircraft Spruce. Some things you will have to get
from Vans. Thermal shields from Wicks Aircraft. Instruments, wiring
and navigation lights are a separate investment. Shop around for these.
I spent About 5K in total 7-8 yrs ago for the tools to build the 1st
10. Good luck. It is a rewarding endeavor when it is done. Doc
