Re: Black Otter 2019!

I am a little embarrassed it's taken me this long to post the pics from the Otter, but here they are. 26 of us! Lots of fun was had. Already looking forward to next year. Is it too early to start prepping to consume an ENTIRE KING CUT??? http://www.rvplane.com/showthumb/DSCN6946.JPG http://www.rvpla...

Re: Black Otter 2019!

Aiming to arrive 530ish?

There might be a slight issue....they claim they didn't order enough prime rib :o . I am going to call them when they open at 4pm and let everyone know. We have a few alternative places picked just in case.

Re: Black Otter 2019!

This will be my 8th Oshkosh, 7th in my RV-7 and 6th consecutive! I don't recall if I went to The Black Otter my first year - I drove in from Chicago and only spent one night (CJ's tent in Camp Scholler :o ). Let's make it Tuesday. Who's got rides, and how many can you squeeze in? Right now for atten...

Black Otter 2019!

Wow, how did Oshkosh sneak up on me so quickly this year???

Who's in for Black Otter 2019? What day works best? I rather liked Tuesday last year. Only downside is <not> missing out on the Van's banquet.

Thoughts?

Re: Bell Tailwheel axle bolt

Is this what you're looking for? https://www.flyboyaccessories.com/product-p/1111.htm You can also go about the DIY method....I think it's an AN4 bolt....you'll have to take it off and measure the diameter and length, then go to Aircraft Spruce (or somewhere that sells AN hardware locally) and buy a...

Re: Drilling stainless firewall *HELP*

What sort of drill are you using? I don't recall anything special about drilling SS.....my drill bits are from Avery, and I used BoeLube , however, any cutting oil should work? My thought is you might be turning the drill bit too fast. A slower speed drill with light pressure applied to the bit (let...

Re: Newbie with Pneumatic Squeezer Woes

When I went to a builders class wayyyyy back in 2005, a fellow builder faced the same dilemma as you - sticker shock over the pneumatic squeezer. Our teacher echoed what Bruce said - don't try to save money on good tools. Specifically the pneumatic squeezer, as it is one of the more complicated tool...

Re: New owner coming up on Annual !!

Tony, I used a clunky 18V DeWalt for my first couple of annuals....it was heavy and the battery needed to be charged daily. By the time I removed all of the screws for the seat pan, my arm was so tired I went home for the day! the B&D lightweight drill have a built in clutch which allows you to ...

Re: New owner coming up on Annual !!

Hi Tony, Welcome to Rivetbangers! There aren't that many consumables I go through, so your list is relatively complete. I have electronic ignition, so every annual I swap out the auto-plugs due to their low cost. I also have the K&N filter oil/cleaner to recharge the air filter. The one thing I ...

Re: Black Otter 2018!

Let's do the same as we've done in years past. Meet your driver at 4pm for a 430 departure. The otter does not take reservations. They do, however, take meat reservations. So if you like your prime rib a certain way, give them a call. Don Miller has 2 spots in his car. He's in Sleepy Hollow. Painles...

Re: RivetBangers APRS Tracker

Unfortunately I have been too busy to maintain the site. I made it as a hobby, and it doesn't provide me any revenue, so it's probably going the way of the other APRS sites.
