Bob, Just remember that, if the AHWIC (Assistant Head Weasel In Charge) is on the flight,that would make the call sign "Weasel Two". It is really upsetting if youget it wrong.

The brass barrels just look nice to the eye (mine=2C anyway)=2C and a neatly safetied turnbuckle can be a work of art. I also second the comments about being able to tweak the tension and adjustment of things.

I really=2C really like the look of those but they require patience to make properly. There is evidence that the standing part of the wire fails in tension by necking right at the ferrule=2C which means that the ferrule is not the weak part. I don't think I've ever seen pictures of an Air Camper with hard-wire braces made up with wrapped ferrules... just drawings and write-ups.> > --------> Oscar Zuniga> Medford=2C OR> Air Camper NX41CC "=3BScout"=3B> A75 power> > > > > Read this topic online here:> > http://forums.matronics.com/viewtopic.php?p=414960#414960> > > ===> > > =0A=0A=0A=0A============0A============0A============0A============0A ________________________________________________________________________________Subject: Pietenpol-List: Re: Corvair College 28
