Thread: Workshop Lighting
02/12/2020 11:04:20

My workshop has these fitted, replaced the existing tubes with the type of LED that doesn’t need the whole fitting replaced, just the starter, there is the added bonus that they are plastic rather than eggshell glass so, as I don’t have covers over them, hitting them with a wing isn’t messy!

I do the same as Peter, relatively easy to do after a practice go

Thread: DB Sopwith Pup flying weight
20/01/2020 10:30:03

I shall do a lot more double checking of weight and balance position, I also was concerned about the rigging attachments, I have crimped a loop behind the gripper (I think as per the plan, too cold to go and check at the mo!) to prevent complete withdrawal of the cable. I still think the tail is over engineered in respect of the amount of wood and corresponding amount of glue required to assemble it so will probably, after double/triple checking my measurements etc, still replace it with a lighter version

a lot Jon!, I was aware of the weight shown by DB but wondered, if like a lot of these things, there was leeway. I shall make the new tail feathers and see what savings can be made, I think the original is quite over engineered considering there is bracing as per the full size, will try using carbon fibre spars and laminated outlines to reduce the woodwork currently employed, I have added a bit of detail (stitching etc) and painted it but didn't think I'd gone overboard with it
