This is a tool that is often seen in a machine shop to measure angles. I have known about them for a while, but only recently acquired one.
Things I found useful about the protractor that will make it a regularly used tool for me.
1. The protractor can be locked down to a give angle.
2. There is a broad face on the arms to make it easier place against surfaces I am measuring..
3. It was very easy to see any gaps between the surfaces and the protractor…Continue
I was able to leak test the installed pilot gas tank with air saving a great deal of grief.

The gas cap was sealed with double sheet of saran wrap.

It was much easier than disassembly and bench testing with gas.
The tank needed to be installed for this…Continue

4) CH750 : aileron + flap skeltons are being…Continue
The last day of 2016 saw the first completed section of my 750 Cruzer!
I have the standard Rotax 912ULS setup with Ducati regulator/rectifier and 22,000uF capacitor. I’m having some issues with a small amount of smoke in the engine bay that briefly enters the cabin and then clears. More often is an electrical smell, very sporadically during flight. I have noticed it more often with higher RPMs during takeoff but also at intermittent times throughout flight. I've had several people look over the plane with no definitive diagnosis. Concerned that it might be the…Continue
