Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
I watched the scratch build videos and purchased some tools from Zenith, a Ridged sander shown in the video, a Rockwell Blade Runner for cutting the form blocks. I highly recommend the videos. I would not have believed you could cut sheet metal with a Plexiglas cuter and a straight edge if I would not have seen it in the video. I purchased a few other simple tool based on the video as well.
The Corvair Engine manual and video was excellent and I am looking for a core.
I purchased the upgraded Z-750 plans & the instrument panel blank so I could start the project by transferring my avionics and instruments to the panel. This way I can get the project going while I get the shop set up and decide how much scratch building I could or should do?
I am also thinking about going to the rudder workshop and while there purchase some of the tools I will need for the build?
