2 of my early forum contributions, re. my original poor quality bench. I'm lucky I have the space, so my new bench is 3600mm long by 900mm wide, comprising two layers of 19mm particleboard flooring securely mounted on joined-up, old metal office tables, and wheels fitted. Built the wings on these, although according to Jon Croke's HomebuiltHelp DVDs it can be done on 2 saw horses.
If you want my "pointers" Walter you should purchase all the HomebuiltHelp DVDs for the Cruzer - priceless, as a confidence booster, if you are a "first timer", AND although it takes time, you should meticulously read all the Cruzer and 750 Forum threads, with a serious eye out for the "gotchas", as otherwise, they will get you too!
Do you have this low cost tool: http://www.tightfittools.net/ again, essential, in my view. If you want to know the drill bits I ordered to go with it, let me know.
Plenty more pointers I could give, but I don't know if I would be preaching to the already experienced.
I might work up a list, as can't do much at the moment as broken my collarbone, falling off my push bike - bumma!
Tip - separate the fun and creativity of the build, from actually flying it (much later) - different things. Tell your friends it will be finished when your good and ready, say 5 years. Then when you do it in 3, all the better.
