  1. EDMO added a post in a topic News about Ed (EDMO)   

    THANKS TO ALL OF AFF, Jim, Doug, and others who have shared concerns.  You make me feel better having you as an extended, caring, family.  I am weak, but they tell me that a recovery day is coming someday.  I have more tests in November and I will try to give you some info by December.  Too shaky to type.  E-CARD IS A NICE GESTURE, but your posts are enough, really Thanking all of you.  Stay tuned, ;<)  edmo

    Welcome to my world Jim!  Wife keeps reminding me that I have so many tools I cant find them and of course I buy another.  ;<)  EDMO

  3. EDMO added a post in a topic Any one know how Ed is doing?   

    Thanks for asking fellows - I try to drop in every few days to see what is happening - Bottom Line:  Not doing any better - Feel so tired - Chemo was recoverable about 2 to 3 weeks after each session, but Radiation sickness and weakness seems to be everlasting.  I think they fried my brain!  ;<)  Cheers, EDMO

    Last ebay post lowered the price to $3500 obo.  Cat wings are in-between Avid STOL/HH and Avid Magnum.  33'?  EDMO

    I've seen several barns burn down when the hay self-combusted.  Donno if it was damp, wet, or too green.  We never stored hay in the barn.  EDMO

    I cant tell you which is better - Grove costs more - probably cheaper to overhaul Matcos?  EDMO

  7. EDMO added a post in a topic soft brakes?   

    TJay,  Not trying to push any sales, but think it might be in your interests to junk or sell those MCs and go with another set which use a reservoir.  I can sell a set of Matco for $100 shipped or Grove for $200, with money back, cost of rebuild for Matco, or exchange if they don't work - Main thing is matching total length of MCs when extended.  I don't know if I have a reservoir I can find, but they are cheap.  Just trying to help you get that bird flying!  EDMO

    Did you check the MC5 rebuild kit parts?  Are the pistons 1/2" or 5/8"?  EDMO

  12. EDMO added a post in a topic Need a 10 MM helicoil installation kit   

    Jim,  Either way, the holes have to be tapped out larger, unless you are just replacing a stripped helicoil.  I have several boxes of solid inserts, but sure that they are all American threads.  EDMO

  13. EDMO added a post in a topic Need a 10 MM helicoil installation kit   

    Jim,  Unless there is a reason you cant use solid inserts instead of helicoils, like the walls not being thick enough, I highly recommend them.  They don't need the High $$ tap or tool, just the next size up for either standard or metric threads, and they have locktite already on the threads, or you can get them with little "fingers" that you drive home after screwing the insert in - They never come loose or strip out.  Check Grainger or MSC.  EDMO

  14. EDMO added a post in a topic Long term storage ~ Winterize   

    I had the same results - My hangers/shop are sealed enough to keep most everything out - If a mouse slips in, it never gets out alive! 
    Don't know much about owls, except that I was in a boat going to my duck blind one night and had to take a leak - when I stepped onto the bank I came face to face with a Great Horned Owl - We both quickly retreated, him flying just over my head - That was the last time I offered to get out of a boat at night to piss!  ;<)  EDMO

    DECON makes a big difference - One pack by each wheel - AS long as there are no cats or dogs around to eat it.  EDMO

    TJay,  Matco might help you identify them - rebuild kits are cheap.  I wish I could help since I have sets of Piper, Grove, MC3 and 2 lengths of MC4, but all of them have external reservoirs.   None have been tested.  EDMO

    The MC5 also has the resi on the top - Are these an "improved version"?  Maybe larger bore?   EDMO

    More info on ACS micro-polishing kit - We were given a 1/4" thick piece of about 3" x 8" plexiglass which had been rough-sawed - We filed and scraped the edges and then started with the kit - The final outcome had to be SQUARE and good enough looking thru both vertical edges of the 3" wide sides to read a newspaper with no scratches showing.  EDMO

  21. EDMO added a post in a topic Just picked up this Model 1 kitfox   

    Agree X2 - Also the 55" is not near wide enough - Do some research on Avids, Kitfoxes, Grove gear, and the Cabane gear that others are making.  EDMO

    We used one of the kits in Av School - I cant tell you which one, but it worked good - with lots of work from coarsest grit down to micro-fine.  EDMO

    There are Kits specifically made for polishing scratches out of aircraft windows - probably $pendy?  Maybe something like the kits you use to polish the plastic covers they now put over car headlights?   EDMO

    They used piano hinges.  May have been an option on KF2 - I haven't checked my KF3 for one.  EDMO
