Yippee! What the postman brought


New to GSN!
If you have a Harbor Freight nearby, take a look at the Bauer oscillating sander, converts between belt and spindle. The table also tilts. I'm happy with mine so far.


Seen this on a "Ziroli Bearcat" build going on now. What a wonderful idea for setting the height of your laser level, lab Jacks. Now I use various blocks shimmed with balsa and plywood to set the height. When I reached out to thank the builder for the idea he said that he borrowed that from the master himself "Nick Ziroli". $17 on Amazon. had to have one.

This is what happens when you go shopping for a replacement radio. The 14SG at $175 was a great deal but an 18SZ at $650 was another great deal.

A year old and barely used. Purchase date recorded, registered with Futaba, etc. Nice radio. I guess i will sell the new 14SG after my original is repaired.


Seems like my next 3 builds require 5" wheels. I have 3 from the crashed Cherokee so I'm down to needing at least 5, three for the TriPacer and two for the Chipmunk. I have been buying up the Sullivan S883 wheels that I've found on line and still short one. While searching I found 5" wheels on Amazon for $22 a pair and decided to give them a try.
The Sullivan wheel weights 5.3 ounces while the Amazon version is a little heavier at 6.5 ounces. Both tires have the same feel and compression. The Amazon version is slightly shorter and narrower with a larger wheel diameter. The tread patterns are similar as well. The wheels are die cast and bronze bushed. All in all it is a very nice looking tire/wheel assembly at $22 bucks a pair. Currently paying $40-$50 for the Sullivan S883 on Ebay. Just might get a chance to use the rotary table to add a few lighting holes. The difference in weight can be attributed to aluminum wheels.



Well I picked up my first ever Cub. older Hangar 9 80" one still NIB. It's going to get a 6S electric setup. Also i had only in the last few months finally gotten a EF 84" Turbo Bushmaster which I have been truly enjoying. Well they just dropped a new Camo scheme and I couldn't say no. So my blue/ whit/ yellow one has been sold to a club member as airframe only and now I'm ready to put all the electronics in this one. And yes I know my shop is a mess.
