HAHA you struck on the basis where On the Job training doesn't always work out. Surely explains why pollyticians repeat the same old mistakes over and over again. LOL

Currently waiting on a new torch so I can soften up the rest of the pipes. I got a new tubing bender yesterday, but haven't tried it yet since I know the tubing will kink, even with the balls in it.

How about packing it with a fine sand? I seen it work every time it was tried.

Whosaaaa,
Dont try bending with the balls IN the tube during the bend! Thse are for pushing thru AFTER bending.

Soapy water, frozen inside the tube , yes. This is not something easily taught in online forums. Hard enough to learn first hand, person to person as an apprentice. Even after 50 years.

I remember my father telling me if you going to beat someone with a rubber hose you always fill it with sand first. He also told me a properly rolled newspaper became as hard as a steel pipe. I think he learned all this during WWII along with the proper way to make a silencer.

To use the packed sand method, the ends of the pipe should be plugged or capped and hthe sand well packed. Otherwise the sand simply worms out the ends while you are bending.
Use flat, foundry or clay sand is best.

Just a part of the job for the last fifty plus years

That rolled newspaper can be used like a pool stick endwise into the gut or kidney more effectively than across the noggin at times. Less people see the shot in most cases as well. The target just drops to his knees awaiting the follow up.

As kids we used to run like hell when caught raiding the next doors fruit orchards but sometimes they snuck up and caught you still up the tree eating fruit, there would be a deafening boom and rock salt penetrates the thickest clothing covering your rear end.

Dave you being crook and all i have to say you are a lucky guy to score all those graupner props, cough, so get well soon buddy.

Bruce that's a nice looking corsair and you can't do better than do justice to it by having a saito radial in it. looking forward to the day you fire it up.

ps gary if you slide a big soft spring inside a piece of straight soft radiator hose you can hit people on both sides of the head at the same time

Pete, I'm no stranger to being peppered by rock salt. When I was a kid old lady "Arkie" would shoot at us when she caught us cutting through her property on the way to our favorite fishing hole. "Hey you boys!, BOOM!, get off my property!" is how she handled us.

Thanks Pete, other than being wiped out and tired I feel much better today, we're supposed to get snow today. Hopefully I can get a Christmas tree home before that happens.

Nothing beats the Thwunk sound a thick walled cardboard tube makes when making contact with skull material.

Oh I'm not advocating anything I was just relating one of my father's amusing stories when I was a kid. On the rock salt statement I have never had the pleasure but I did have a friend who got helped over a fence a time or two. He was 6'6" in junior high so he was always the easiest target to hit and little less picky on the watermelon patches he would raid. Rock salt builds character!

I prefer the sound of a roaring radial pulling out of a split S.
Still looking for the humor of whacking somebody else with anything.

Well, Two pipes are useful, the third is a no go, the tube wall is just too thin to make a 90* let alone 180* bend. No matter what I try it kinks too easily. Going to try a different approach with 3/8" coil copper. If I can get the bend I need for the last pipe, then I will machine one end to 8mm OD for the nut, or bore out the ID to slip fit the existing tubing I already made and braze them together. The ID of the coil copper is only .005 smaller than the tubing I am using, but still .018 larger than the stock pipes. I can always find a use for the copper coils around here.

I have a low time FG14 in route to my door. I have a 46-55 size P-51 that's well suited to it. Would also work quite well on an RCM Funster I have in the works.

FG-14 isn't that a beautiful .82 converted into a Frankenstein monster to run on the nauseating smelly fluid instead of sweet smelling alcohol, nitro, and oil blend?

Yep, moving over to elcheapo smelly gas for planes I fly a lot and anything requiring an engine larger than 18cc. With price increases I spent way too much on glow fuel this year. I'll keep a few smaller glow engines around though. Will be selling a few more glow engines here very shortly.

I know the fuel isn't cheap but I still love glow and will stay with them.
