Spraying dope with HVLP

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience spraying coloured dope using HVLP? Just wondering how easy/practical it is.

Re: Glues

Craig, Am not familiar with that adhesive but I suspect you might find it difficult to get LAA approval to use it. They are not unnaturally conservative. Prefere aka Aerodux has a long and known history which is why it is still widely used, does not deteriorate over time and is stable in high temper...

Re: What Glue For Wood

Hi, West Epoxy is the T-88 alternative most widely available in the UK. I have never used Aerolite but other people do great work with it. I have always previously used Prefere (Aerodux) and as Tony said we are using gallons of it on the Comet, but have recently been using West Epoxy on two personal...

Re: Sources of Plywood

Try TLAC who supply ply certified to a standard acceptable to the LAA, also Lathams in Bristol may be able to help.

GL1 is pretty hard to find now.

Re: Wittman W10 TailWind

Hi Kevin,

It may be worth speaking to Peter Mather about his build process. I have his number somewhere and will pm it, am sure he won't mind you calling.

He has been keeping a build blog here: http://tailwindbuild.blogspot.co.uk

Zenith carb for the 'Royal' Turbulent

Hi, we are struggling to find either a gasket set or to borrow an airworthy Zenith 32KL P10 carb for the 'Royal' Turbulent project. This is currently a major problem to us as it is otherwise very close to flying. We have a source for gaskets in Germany, but they are closed this month. Suggestions fo...

Yes, but they come with a build licence built in to the price.

Another owner has found me the couple I need.

Re: Strut by postcode

I guess a late reply is better than never? Not quite a postcode search (like for finding an LAA inspector) but go here: http://www.lightaircraftassociation.co.uk/ Click 'Clubs & Struts' then the sub-menu item 'Club & Strut information' that takes you here: http://www.lightaircraftassociation.co.uk/s...

Hi Ian,

Are you well? Have not seen you since last November.

I haven't actually laid my hands on any yet, but a few leads. Do you have some?

Jodel DR1050 drawings wanted for reference

Hi,

I am trying to get hold of certain DR1050 drawings for reference in order to carry out a repair on a friend's aircraft. These are not to build from so I don't want to but a set with a build licence.

If anyone has a set that I might look at, borrow or buy, please do get in touch.

regards

Colin
