Robin,

 

Please contact through wyahner@windstream.net. I am not active in the forum and don't do Facebook, etc. Glad to answer any questions but I have built a 750 and 701 both with U L Power. I don't like Rotec.

hi Robin,

 

How is the build going? I've got myself a bandsaw and belt sander but I need a tool to sand the flute recess on the form blocks, what do you use?

Have a great weekend

Hi Robin, I hope all is going well with the 750. My plans have arrived and I'm now sorting out the workshop. I'm looking to buy a band saw, Do I need to buy one that cuts both wood and metal. what brand do you have and is it a good quality.

Hi Robin,
No, I am living just west of Amberley for the moment we are planning on moving somewhere before Christmas so the kit is on hold til then. I am Ex RAAF(Engines/Airframes). Good luck on the building. I admire your courage for scratch building.
I know what you mean about the need to go flying, I can only go about two weeks before withdrawal sets in and my family is asking when the last time I went flying was.
Have a good one
Paul

Cheers Chris - I learnt on Jabs as an RAAer then got my PPL in 2004. I'm in Summer Hill not quite sure where the electorate boundaries are for the SAAA ;-) but people suggested Chapter 1 at Cowra and they're a nice bunch. Is the Aussie group run by Alan? Just heard my clecos and pliers arrived at the toolshop today, exciting :-).
