On this one, the cylinder is a brand new factory painted 325 , five cylinder dual plugger with HC piston. Rather than paint the new old stock case I did a black epoxy powder coat. Finished off with home made reverse taper black stack.

Never got to run it. Hijynx came up in bad need of a cylinder to save his cherished 325 R5 so we handed the cylinder off to him.

I just reamed a

Xoar 13 x 7 for my FG 11, the Xoars come with 6mm holes, accurately reaming to 7mm was a problem. Not any more, I grabbed a set of stepped reamers, a lot of the reamers sets skip the 7mm for some reason, the set I chose does not skip the 7mm or the 8mm size. Using the 6mm step for a guide I drill down to the 7mm step then change to a full length 7mm reamer. It works like a champ.

Where did you find a metric step drill?

I found them at Amazon and this chuck reamer also.


Six flutes, I use it in my Micro Mark, DC variable speed drill at 250 rpm.

Ya think?

...... My favorite test stands all have wings


Standard reamers make super prop reamers.
Grind a pilot area at the tip and sharpen the ends of the flutes at the transition. If you don't have access to the needed equipment, you can send it off to a cutter grinder shop. You can make the lead any size, then make up a suitable bushing for other pilot hole sizings. Say a M6 pilot and a 1/4" bushing or any combination desired.



Note the M8 OD bushing fitted to the 1/4\" pilot.

Been flying this black and white LT 40 with a Saito 56 several times, I fixed up the green one for the "66" but originally bought it for the FG 11. I made a hole with a grommet for spark plug wire and you can see the ignition switch slot. The FG 11 will replace the never flown 66 today and I bought a one gallon gas can to use instead of the red, leaky spout EPA can.




Of course I'll add a dip tube and vent to the lid.

Some nice planes there Dave. The The Franken Saito 66 is surely looking for a ride in the sky!

Instead of putting all those fittings in the lid, how about soldering them into the top of the can opposite the filler neck? You can make up some brass fittings with your lathe and sweat solder them in place. Makes for a tidy setup and no fussng with the lines when filling the can.


A bit like this but using flanged, machined brass fittings cleanly soldered to the can's top.

This is the O-ring sealed filler nozzle. Gives a good pressure-tight seal every time.

The basic layout, filler cap also O-ring sealed
All fittings are home-made on the trusty old lathe.

Thanks, that is my "other" can. Powder coated in black. I made two cans about 35 years ago. Everyone said an aluminum can would corrode badly from carrying "evil" methanol and nitromethane! So I made two. Turns out, with the oil content corrosion has never been a problem and #1 is still like new inside. I now use the black can to dispense the zero nitromethane fuel used in the formerly gaspoline engines that I have restored to methanol operation.

BTW, even the 50 plus year old fuel can is still around. Haven't used it since putting the aluminum cans in service but the nasty old methanol has been held off from corroding the steel as well. Could have a lot to do with the oil



Dave,
How is the big Robinhood coming along?
Been a slow season here so far. Logged less than 35 hours in the air. Still have many gallons of fuel to burn.

Fine bizz.

Are you covering with the snazzy fabric or Monokote?

hey guys. I need to make a new Lead Screw for my Compound slide. I made a new Nut for it, and it came out great. but the Lead is 28, 29 rears old and warren. it's a standard thread, not Acme. so I am wondering if I could use "Drill Rod" what you think? thread size is 1/4x20.

another thing. I have a "Century" brand Die made in Austria. anyone know the quality of these Century Dies?


Dave, that Saito 56 looks really perky, (like a Hotrod) sticking out of the cowl like that.

Side exhaust


Roller bearings

That's a cute little bugger.

Should make power equivalent to a .50 cu in 2 stroke glow engine.

Probably a bit less power than a YS .53 glow 4 stroke.
Which is also a bit smaller and probably quite a bit lighter.

Seeing as fueling with gas is the objective an FG-17 would be a very nice 4 stroke, Dave.

Yes, that does limit the options. But since we were including two stroke glows to four stroke Saito and two stroke chinese gassers from a comparitive power standpoint...
Tossing in a fine four stroke glow seemed appropriate as well.

The FG 17 costs nearly 3 times as much as the little Stinger 10cc.

I bought a real nice Saito FA-100 for $75 at the club swap a few weeks ago. For another $50 it can be running nicely, burning zero nitromethane fuel on CDI
