Pietenpol-List: Hello from Texas

Post by matronics »

Original Posted By: Jerry Guyer
Hello,I am new to the list. My name is Bob Seibert. I just bought a Pietproject from John Goble in Austin, Tx. It is an assembled fuselage (noton the gear yet), empenage and wing ribs. I am located near Taylor, Tx. - about 20 miles NE of Austin. Hopefullyour grass strip will show up on next publication of the San Antoniosectional. It is "Macho Grande" identifier 41XS. Anybody who flys funairplanes is welcome to drop in. 30deg 32.31'N - 97deg 25.17'W 2500'grass (would you believe weeds and dirt). Flybys are allowed only ifthey are less than 50'AGL. (smile) Its actually pretty smooth. I fly myRV-6 out of it using 5.00 x 5 tires. Anyway, I'm looking forward to this Pietenpol project. Now I just gottaclear a lot of junk out of the shop, get the fuselage home and buy thewife another couple of christmas presents....FIRST QUESTION-I will start on the gear first. I am getting a couple of motorcycle rimswith the project and I do want to go the spoke rim route. I have theequipment to build up hubs and axles. Where is a good source for spokes?Bob Seibert________________________________________________________________________________
