"I guess I need a bigger (4' x 12)' work bench so I am designing one that can be folded up against the shop wall when not in use."

Upgraded plans

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?See More

Wood Sheet metal Break

Saw this pick and thought the idea could be beefed up with steel plate screwd to face of boards and steel channel on the backside to keep it true.

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.

New cruiser

Just saw the new 750 cruiser. Anybody ever removed there leading edge slats to see how much cruise speed would increase?  Maybe you could store them in the fuse somehow when not needed:)
