Re: 4130 supplier

patch
 

Rowan yuu won't get an answer at that website. Vortex Generators and the sqaure engine mounts were designed and built by Art Bianconi. Sadlly, Art is no longer with us. Not sure why his website is still up. There are some problems with fabricating the engine mounts. But easily solved Many  Many people have built them. If you will wearch the Canardaviators.com website, there are solutions and pictures on there to show you what you are getting into. One of the problems is it moves the mounting points and a standard LEZ engine mount no longer works. The mounting points are in the wrong location. There are some other small challenges that have been overcome. Check out the canardaviation form. You will find most of the answers you seek there.

Re: Tilting the autopilot

Bruce Hughes
 

HI Phil

Thank you VERY, VERY much for your email.

My test pilot wants the ball in the center.
I am a very low time pilot, and may lose
my license (depends on congress) so
I wanted to keep him happy.

I have realized a way to make it adjustable
without machining anything. I would be using
flox and adjust it while it is still soft enough
to do the job. Next day it would be hard
and set correctly.

I will ask you when I really need some machining.

BTW Where can I buy a really good "cookie cutter"
Mine is OK but will grab when almost through the
aluminum. I think there is a better way to do it.

Thanks again.

Bruce

Hi Group
I have made several small aluminum panels.
I prefer to NOT pull the entire panel if I need

My latest Altimeter-and-autopilot panel is about 6.5"

I don't have proper tools so it is not easy to

need a better designed cutter; this one binds.
I probably need to sharpen the blade.
I have found that the autopilot is very slightly

So don't bother answering; I have it.

For most people, I imagine Chapter 9 (Landing gear and such) is probably not as big of a deal, but it proved to be my chapter from hell.  I started this chapter in Dec. of 2014.  Since then, I was hospitalized a week for a paralyzed colon that put me out of building for three months, lost my job, gained a new job but with a longer commute, and have had three foster children placements.  I also suffered having to deal with the mounting tab tube inserts not being parallel and having to fix that (still don't know where I went wrong, but glad to be done).  With the exception of a couple of nutplates I need to install and the wheel pants which I will do at a later date, I finally can consider the chapter done and move on.  To be fair, I also did add two things that are not covered in the plans (mainly the gear leg fairings and the intersection fairing).  Just felt the need to say that perseverance does pay off.  I'm also very appreciative of all the help that I received during this time getting questions answered and people checking out my parts.   Website is updated for those that want pictures.  Thanks!

We were asked to make these and we decided not to based on two issues, the first being the weld of the 3/4" x 3/4" plug in the end of the tube was all that secured the mount in each corner and second, our mounts with the additional tubes added to prevent the inevitable cracks/breaks do not have the ability to run a bolt through the center of the mounting stubs.
We are not so concerned about the weld any more but still our mounts would not be suited to this mounting style.

Re: Pmag/magneto cotter pins

No *sigh*, this is not a new failure mode, it's old news. I just wanted to make sure it got its due attention from anyone that missed earlier.
Improperly installed or sized, same problem across any gear driven Slick, Bendix, Pmag,  Electroair, LSE. Yes, EMGair shot themselves in the foot on this earlier by shipping the smaller cotter.

After telling me that my engine was the cause of the problem; that they didn't want me using Pmags on my aircraft and that their machining was perfect and that something in my engine was causing the bearings to fail (even though the bearings were fine and the shaft was the problem) they now admit that their MFG was the issue.

Unbelievable. There is no amount of $$$ you could give me to put one, much less two of these things on the engine in my aircraft given the other choices out there for EI's. Yes, there are many folks out there that have them without issues, and if you have a good one, you MAY be OK into the future (unless you have one of the degenerative issues they've admitted to).

But the failure rate among airplanes to which I've been exposed is somewhere in the 5 - 10% range, if not higher, within the first couple hundred hours of usage. Would you accept that failure rate on any other safety critical component on your airplane?

If you want an EI, get a Lightspeed, EFII or SDS system, depending upon your current needs and eventual upgrade desires.

It is in workshop-aircraft service centre
it was removed May 2014

Rowan,

Are these for a new installation or is this R & R (remove and replace).  The difference is match existing holes or just drilling them in the standard place.

When I was building many years ago, I used to get my metal from Dillsburg Metals in Dillsburg, PA. He used to keep his stock in old chicken coops. He would sell you any quantity or lengths. Don't know if is still in business but he was great to deal with. For what it's worth.

Probably a long shot as they sell to
builders of homes, office buildings, etc.
Not likely to have 4130 but see:
