|Thread: New build rubber powered balsa|
When I was a kid I too built several KK Ajax and Senator models. I don't remember having problems covering them with tissue, I used to slap tissue paste over everything and on went the tissue, shrink with water and lots of dope, ah the smell!
These day I cover with mylar, then with wet tissue and a couple on thinned coats of water based varnish.
|Thread: LMA Elvington show 2019|
I think Chris probably meant "Belair".
|Thread: Binding to orange Rx|
Pete. Sorry to be a pedant but the original DSM sets did reach these shores I had one of the DX6 sets that Al's flogged off cheap with the arrival of DSM-2. It worked OK but it was difficult to bind (sounds familiar) and took an age to reconnect if the signal was lost, even longer than the earlier DSM-2 receivers, eek!
I sold the TX quite quickly for the same as what I paid for it and replaced with a DX6i. I still have the DSM receiver but I only used it in boats but given up with that as it only connected to the transmitter when it felt like it.
|Thread: Oracover Easycover Sold As Seconds|
I must be different then? Not having problems with it. 😳
|Thread: Do you have one this big!|
My. That's a mighty big one! Got lots of wires coming out of it?
|Thread: Oracover Easycover Sold As Seconds|
Dai, I used most of a roll of silver Easycoat seconds, I had no problems at all with it and couldn't work out why it was a second.
Back in the days when used to field charge (nicads) I used to use old car batteries, when they ran out of puff down the dump they went, then onto the next ex car battery. These days I take a bunch of charged lipo''s and only bench charge.

|Thread: Tony Nijhuis Harvard - Build Log|
Rotary?!! In a Harvard! Maybe a radial.
|Thread: Laminating film prior to silk and dope|
I have covered a couple of models with tissue over mylar. I can't remember how thick the mylar was but it came from free flight supplies, very cheap. First I put some thinned balsalock on the balsa framework, then attach the mylar all around the edges using a covering iron, shrink the mylar. The tissue was sprayed with water then put over the mylar one panel at a time brushing on water based varnish from B&Q when dry use wet and dry to trim off edges then do next panel. Once coveref give another coat of thinned varnish, job done.
No dope was used only cheap water based varnish, no smells and brushes clean in water. The covering was very easy to do even though you are doing two covering jobs on one model. It's light and puncture proof.
|Thread: Motor pulsing|
As above, probably a bad connection to one of the motor wires. Had it happen a couple of times, the first time it was intermittent, the heat shrink was the only thing holding the connector on the end on the wire.

Boats will have to be registered next, then trains, all dangerous you know.

|Thread: How do you buy your Balsa?|
Percy those saws are very nice, wish I had one but until I do it's a balsa stripper and a Stanley knife for the hard stuff.
I don't keep much wood in stock only buy when I have a plan to build. My local shop (Inwood) don't stock anywhere as much balsa as they used to so if possible I buy from Balsa Cabin or SLEC preferably at the NATS.
Don't buy in bulk or specials.
Very posh. I use this to cut my stripwood......
|Thread: Smiley Problem|
Will it work on a black and white telly?
Anybody seen the test card? It's disappeared from my telly
|Thread: Mini/micro lathe|
Which lathe to buy question is a minefield a bit like the which transmitter is the best one to buy. Sorry I can't answer your question directly as I don't own a mini lathe, but I can recommend a good place to buy one from **LINK**
I have purchased tooling from Arc Euro and they are an excellent company to deal with. Have a search on the Model Engineer forum for Mini lathes, they have been discussed many times before. **LINK**
