Study the plans carefully,  they do not draw them to scale.  I found when doing the forms that I got high quality Vellum drafting paper to plot on.  I used the Incra metric t-square and can achieve accuracies to 1/4 mm.  Very good for non CAD work.  I am starting to build the forms and finished the work table.  If have not done so, go look at the CH601.org site for very good tips and tools.  Purchase the DVD's, they are wonderful.

Hello Michael,

Welcome to the Zenith family of builders and flyers.


I hope things are going great up there in the RAGBRAI state. I will be up there for the annual bike ride in July.


If you are ever near the Zenith factory here in Mexico, MO. I invite you to stop by and say hi to us at our facility also.
