Thanks fellas :tu: I’m actually really enjoying this Build. I feel like it’s much easier with the short fuse tube and 2 piece wing :tu: The fuse tube is 3/8. I’ve actually been on blood pressure medication since I was 22 . Cartman, that GBR looks sweet :rockoncool:

If you don’t mind WF I really appreciate it :tu: I wouldn’t wish them on my worst enemy. Unfortunately my primary seems like a quack. He only does whatever it takes to get me in the door more often vs actually helping with a solution. Only other odd thing I’ve had is raynaud's. Finger tips turn white. He solution is to wear gloves. :roll: Its probably something simple but hard to find someone to take the time now days

I cut all the parts with a old little craftsman band saw. The holes in the ribs I used a craftsman scroll saw. It was really easy to do. I used two 2-56 screws to cut two ribs at a time screwed together. Used a School Elmers glue stick to put the paper template on. It peels right off leaving no mess.

I recently found a great tool for cutting holes in balsa. A diamond grit hole saw set meant for use in glass, tile etc works awesome. They basically sand their way through. I use mine in a bench top drill press but they should work in a hand drill. I bought the cheapest set on Amazon, around $13. You can use them in 1/16 stock right up to the edge without tear out. I’ve tried a lot of things to do this job, these win hands down, that is unless you own a cnc or laser cutter.

I've had good luck cutting teeth in the end of a brass tube, the only trick is getting it started clean. On the smaller holes I just sharpen the end with an xacto.

Yep, done that a lot and it works great as long as the holes aren’t too big. I can’t remember what the biggest size is but it’s over an inch. Hard to find tube that big thin walled. If one builds at all these are worth way more than they cost to have around.

Great idea vince. I know I have one small diamond bit that I will have to try out just to see how it works.
