  5. I am liking them. The table has a 2x4 based frame with cross supports, then 3/4" plywood screwed on top, and capped with 16 gauge galvanized sheet metal.

    I have the same saw (and his disc sander). Awesome tools, they will last for eons. Very well made and precise.

  7. Well fella's, it would appear no matter how I slice it the Valach 140 will not fit this airframe and it also appears the 120 will not fit either. I have not searched much yet but have found the 3W 140 quad would fit easily and by it's specs would be more than enough engine.

  8. Ok guys, here is the scoop. I just can't stand the idea of putting a two stroke in this build and was talking with Andres about how big I would have to go to fit the engine. But, whilst I was trying to grasp the severity of the situation, I was thinking based on other Pitts I have and have had I just could not understand why this engine would not fit. It should!!!!
    So I commenced to searching pics, measuring, comparing, etc. etc. and then as usual """""""" the light came on. Basically I had this designed around an artist rendition and it was wrong!!! The fuse is designed flat on the sides with an ever so slightly taper in, the full scale does not do this, taper in. I shot a good pic onto the wall and came up with a nose width, and fortunately it more than accommodates this engine. So two great things came out of today, one is I can use this engine, and two being I learned before gluing anything that it was off. Woo Hoo!!

    That a relief so 140 will go into this plane now. That saves a lot of headache but that 4 cylinder 3W would have been a nice engine too. And you have to agree even though it is a two stroke a four does have a nice sound and they are quite.

  10. I was admiring a DA 200 yesterday at the field, it definitely had a better sound. But it was a far cry from a four stroke, in my opinion anyway.
    The table saw will be here by end of Friday or sooner according to Byrnes. I had to order another roll of paper as that last tracing was the end of mine, also scheduled by end of Friday. I will redraw the fuse layout to include the correct nose size and make adjustments accordingly. Should not be that big of a deal.
