my cam100 engine

Had been looking for a cam100 and found this one with 250 hours on it.

Older Honda civic EW2 engine core - good reliable engines

horizontal stab

  1. Back at it after a two years away form the project

    plans building, so I oversized the skin to start

    Will trim and clean up skin once removed for deburring and priming of mating surfaces

bottle nose root ribs?

Posted on February 21, 2014 at 2:40pm 5 Comments

Root nose rib 75-w-4-1 drawn out does not match to root rear rib 75-w-4-2

if I where to make the nose rib x=0 and y=90 instead of 80, and do the same to the rear root rib, it would look more like the drawing of the nose and rear rib together, on pg 75-wa-1

Any suggestions…

Hi Peter

I just want to confirm, a "Bending Brake" as you call it. is it a sheet-metal bender?

If this is what you are referring too, I'm still trying to make a plan myself. started bending last night, but really struggled. I ended up making this JIG< and it seems to have worked well. I still have to sort out some sort of metal sheet bender, will send photos if i get it right.
