I do still read many of the columns in Flying , but I typically skip the feature. I never miss a Dick Carl column. Besides knowing him (we sold him an airplane a few years back-and still have his old Cessna 340 for sale :bang: ) I love his style-but not necessarily his choices. He has written severa...

I have been looking at compressors on Harbor Frieght's website, and some of the compressors are rated using SCFM vs. CFM.

What's the difference???

Same here. I know it's been around for a long time, but don't know when it became standard in our area. Our house was built in '77, and we use the same load config/120/240 system as CJ.

Snips

I found a great price on a set of three snips from Harbor Frieght. They are Central Pneumatic brand. I am still new to these tool brands, and which ones are good or not.

How does this brand stack up to Wiss, which sounds to me to be the standard?

There was a LOT of people there for breakfast to meet the new Executive Director of the airport. I've never seen every seat filled before! Let me know the next time you'll be down, I'd love to talk to you about your 7A. I have preview plans ordered for the -7, and a training kit that should be here ...

I'll be at OSH as well, and would love to run in to you guys, for the t-shirt of course! I will more than likely be in our 172XP in the north 40 mid-week through the weekend.

CAN'T WAIT!!

Compressors...revisited

I am starting the process of researching tools to buy. I am not going to go with one of pre-assembled kits, but I am going to buy a starter rivet kit with a 3X gun, and then piece together the rest when I see what I am going to need. One thing I will need right up front is an air compressor. There w...

OK, back to RV's...
