Scotchbrite deburring wheels

Good evening everyone....As I progress to cutting out my larger parts from aluminum sheet, I've read a ton of information about deburring the edges.Other than the $107CAD 3M wheels offered by Aircraft Spruce, does anyone have a cheaper source or perhaps cheaper alternative that does the same thing?I see tons of cheaper Silicon Carbide type deburring wheels available, but I've yet to find any information on whether SC is an acceptable abrasive to use on 6061T6 aluminum.  Everything I've been…See More

I am offering the aircraft and corvair as a package deal.  I am not going to part it out unless you would like to give me a reasonable offer for engine alone. Best to pick up at my location near Harrisburg pa - shipping would be expensive.

Hi Jason,

Don't know yet IF I will move  the attach point outward... I know it has been done WITHOUT moving those around. I just want a LONGER wing for a lighter kg/foot2. The guys at STOLSPEED have done it and they did not move those, so for me, I would rather not move them. Still debating...

Regards,

Norm

Pretty much everything is going with the plane... I think I have some misc parts buried somewhere, but I'm in the middle of a move and it's all in a big disaster in my garage right now LOL
