|Thread: Sample Pots|
You can get measuring pots from Bucks Composites or slightly smaller ones from Hobbycraft and for small (stick a joint amounts) I use yoghurt pot lids.
Hope this helps
|Thread: Cambrian ME109 Funfighter electric build|
I like the 3rd one with all the blue BUT it may go missing in the air, so I’d go with the middle one
I have the same kit to make, but the ic version. I quite like the fighter/bomber colour scheme.
|Thread: Lidl multitool/ dremel clone|
I bought a “Dremel” one off eBay. It works fine.
|Thread: Dust extractor|
I”ll look into it when I’m feeling better. At the moment the skin is safe on the rice pudding!
Thanks, this looks good as well but very heavy and I don’t think my workshop roof will take it. But good input. I think I will have to refrain from building for several weeks and let the pills work, I am on a a 5 week course to clear my breathing plus a nebuliser. At the end of the day I may have to “focus” on ARTF models. This is the second episode in 12 months.
Thanks for all the ideas guys. I use appropriate masks when sanding and spraying. The problem is the airborne particles that float around in the air after sanding or spraying. I noticed how much of a problem it was one day recently when the sun shone through the window. The garage looked as if it was full of airborne dust which didn’t settle for a long time.
I hadn’t realised how much hangs in the air.
Thanks for the input guys, at the moment I’m weighing cost against how I’m breathing now. I’m asthmatic to boot which makes this a big issue for me at the moment, but an ongoing issue as well.
The Jet AFS 500 May well be in my sights. I’ll pop along to my nearest Axminster store in the New Year but as said, all opinions very welcome.
Having another bout of bad breathing so looking at getting an air filter. Shocked when low sun highlighted the dust hanging in the air even after finished and removing mask! (I use both dust mask and fume masks as needed)
Looking at the Jet system and will look at the Microclene after the new year. Building on hold until resolved!
Any further advice to above welcome. (Yes I could go all foamy, but where’s the fun in that, no building.)
|Thread: Best De-humidifier for the workshop?|
I use a Meaco DLL unit when the weather is damp and when I have the gas heater on. Works a treat.
Not cheap mind, but therein may be why it’s good. Kept my Harley dry for many years.
|Thread: How many flyable aircraft do you have ?|
About 11 if I count those in the loft, ready to fly and those in the garage. Any ideas on label suppliers, I don’t have a Dymo machine?
|Thread: Need new Dehumidifier|
Meaco DLL, working in the garage for many years and still in use when the gas heater is on. Had one in the conservatory as well. Very pleased with it.
You can have it “ plumbed “ in so it drains out the door or use the inboard tank.
|Thread: Junior 60 build advice|
I build in my garage and can recommend a gas cabinet heater, I also have a dehumidifier to keep the water vapour under control. It’s very capable of keeping me warm. I have both a smoke and CO alarm in case of any issues. An economic solution tested over several years worth of winters.
|Thread: Where do you keep yours?|
Kept in the garage for last 2 years. It’s insulated so batteries don’t appear to come to harm. I’ve been very much less concerned knowing they are in the Bat-Safe. Batteries seem to be most at risk when charging so the fact that they are charged and stored in the same box keeps everything in one place and I have no concerns. I also use a parallel board for charging. Prior to buying the box I was always wondering what a risk the lipo’s were to my garage.
Recent discussion covered some aspects of this.
|Thread: Filling a Hole?|
Depending on size of “hole” I’ve used Polyfilla Advanced, pick up a tub and you’ll see it is very light.
|Thread: Ammo Box for Lipos ??|
Looking at the You Tube demo, it looks that the Battsafe will also filter some of the smoke emitting from a Lipo fire. I think that is a key feature of the Battsafe,
I don’t have the documents that came with my Battsafe but the FAQ’s are on the link.
Another vote for the Battsafe.
It’s purpose made for the job and there is a video on You Tube somewhere showing it’s effectiveness.
|Thread: Mick Reeves Gangster 63 Lite|
Finally got underway with mine. Wings done but putting the aileron horns into place they are different to the ones in the instructions, and barely poke above the depth of the aileron. Am I missing something? Never used this horn layout before.
Thanks for any ideas.

Guaranteed certainty ! As Peter, I keep Acetone on the workbench.
